“Nice place to stay.”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Friendly welcoming owner. Large room with a 4 poster bed and an exquisite en-suite. Really nice location too. Loads of restaurants to eat in so you don't need to travel far for quailty food. The only thing you have to remember and take is a brolly, it rained non-stop but even that didn't spoil the view.

We have just spent 3 nights at Elim House and have no issues whatsoever. We arrived earlier than expected however our room was ready, and Steve showed us to it before showing me where to park the car.

We had a room in the back building and had everything that we needed. No problems with hot water, and indeed Steve showed us how to operate the switches. Room was very comfortable and we were provided with a hairdryer, tissues and toiletries.

You order your cooked breakfast in advance which is a great idea as theirs no wastage, and Judith checked with us each day that everything was ok.

Location of Elim House is absolutely ideal as you walk straight into Bowness and on one night we walked into Windermere for a meal, which only took 20 minutes and we were walking at a moderate pace. Although we had a good meal in Winderemere (Oriental Kitchen), did feel that the restaurants in Bowness have the Edge. Would recommend The Albert as before 6pm their main meals are £5.95 were great and we didn't have room for dessert. Would also recommend Rumours, an italian opposite the church on the way down to the bay.

Would definitely recommend Elim House and will probably use again when we next visit the Lake District.

Our family had a wonderful experience at Elim House. Our rooms were comfortable, spacious and with all the modern conveniences and overlooked an absolutely beautiful garden. Steve and his wife, the owners and hosts were very attentive hosts and we enjoyed a tasty and full English breakfast that they prepared each morning. Elim House is in an ideal location. Just off the main road through the town, Elim House is in a quiet spot with the lake no more than a 10 minute walk away. At the same there are a variety of restaurants, shoppes and other amenities just a stone's throw away, so that you have the best of both worlds. I would definitely stay at Elim House again, its a little gem.

Nice friendly atmosphere awaits when you arive. I was on my motorcycle and steve locked it away in his garage. This was over and above what I expected.
Room nice and clean.
Garden was gorgeous.
Close to the town and all amenities

Room Tip: The 4 poster room is worth the little bit more.

We have twice stayed at Elim House and have received excellent service each time. The owners are friendly and courteous and nothing is too much trouble. The location is ideal, quiet but within walking distance of all local amenities. I have been inspired to comment on reading "Glad to be home to hot water" nothing could be further from our experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be happy to recommend this as friendly, well situated and well run accommodation.
