The White House Hotel
Reviewed September 14, 2009

Stayed one night at the White House, unfortunately, for us it was fully booked out the next night. Great little hotel right in the heart of town within easy reach of all amenities. The room was great and very clean only down side for me, the bed was a touch hard.
A realy nice touch was the rear entrance we could use which saved troubling others going through the hotel restuarant, made it feel like our own "wee" place.
Had a really good breakfast and well presented.
Will look forward to going back and staying again for longer.

What a fab hotel. Fantastic location, just tucked away fro the main hustle, yet amongst it at the same time.
The bar/restaurant is decorated to a high standard, very clean and well resented; we were only there for the one night (big mistake!) so I think tat is why we were given a small room (no. 3), but everything was great about it despite the size - the bed was so comfortable.
Breakfast was served 8.30 to 9.30 and again to a very high standard.
You get free parking perit (£10 deposit) fro the car park literally 2 mins walk from the hotel, but they do have an area for a car to pull into to allow you to unload and load yur bags.
This was our first stay in Bowness and highly recommend it - the town is wonderful with and Lake Windermere is such beautiful. Highly recommend a stay at the White House - enjoy!

I don't normally write reviews but had to comment on how great The Whitehouse is! Just back from a few days in the Lakes and what a great B&B, fantastic location with a great breakfast and lovely friendly staff. The room was spotlessly clean, the only thing I could critisize is that the shower cubicle was tiny! But was made up for by the powerful hot shower itself. Would highly recommend as location perfect to explore all parts of the Lakes.

Tucked away in the centre of Bowness, small but beatifully appointed boutique style rooms above the bar and restaurant. Tasty food beautifully presented by cheery helpful staff. excellent value and a real find amongst some over priced and old fashioned options.

A lovely bar with modern rooms. Our room was large enough to include a sofa. rooms are very clean with central heating that you can control. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice on offer. For a ten pound deposit we were provided with a parking pass which saved us alot of cash and messing around with pay and display. The pass covers car parking for the south lake district. You are provided with a leisure pass for a nearby hotel leisure centre and have free use of the facilities there. The bar is situated close to restaurants and pubs if you don't want to eat there every night and is central for shopping and the lake.
