A very enjoyable stay. The room was comfortable and clean, the staff gave me a very warm welcome and the quality of the food was very good. I thought that the cost of my stay was very well priced, my only slight issue is that breakfast was served from 8.30am which was too late for me and the fact also that there is no free internet access which I expect to have these days.

Having visited The Angel Inn restaurant before we decided to try out the hotel. We found a great deal direct through the website and booked a suite for two nights. The hotel and rooms are decorated in a modern style but retain traditional elements such as the wooden beams and log fires. The service was excellent and the included breakfast delicious. However it was the staff that made the break so special for us, friendly and engaging they immediately made us feel at home and helped in any way they could with our newborn baby. We loved it so much that we stayed an additional night. Thanks to all at The Angel Inn!

Great location with lake windomere, and the cruises, a 2 minute walk away and loads of beautiful walks starting close by. Staff were very pleasant and food was amazing and all for a reasonable price. Dinner (with a bottle of vino), bed and breakfast for two all for £110.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, of any age. Perfect place to chill out, eat some great food and get lots of rest for the next day walking. Amazing breakfast. The whole experience was great, you can check in, talk a walk around the town and then take a walk or boat trip around windermere. Great. Oh and there are two fireplaces and they sell great ale.

A really nice cosy B&B. Set in a prominent position just out of Bowness Village centre with a distant view of Lake Windermere from the terraced garden and also the room we stayed in. Friendly and accommodating staff made the stay enjoyable.

The building comprises the main hotel and a seperate gate house, where our particular room was located. On entering the main building there are two rooms either side with plenty of comfy sofas and chairs with open fires in both. Beyond that is the reception with the dining room/restaurant adjacent.

Our room was in the Gatehouse, up a few stairs. This building contained 2, possibly 3 rooms. We stayed in the executive suite which was a fair size, with a seperate area containing a comfy leather chair and sofa with a large flat screen TV.

The room is why I have had to lower the overall score. While it could not really be faulted in most respects, the sleep depravation did not help and personally speaking that is critical to having a decent break. The bed was really comfortable but the spoiler was whatever mechanism being used to heat the Gatehouse must have been installed by Torquemada himself. It was awful, as soon as it woke us up, which it did every night, it was tortuous. It was as if someone was in a basement room with a mini Jack Hammer, it really was that bad. Considering the room was by the side of the road, you would presume noise would have come from there.

A shame really as it spoiled what would have been a perfect stay. The included breakfast was cooked to order and the restaurant provided a really exceptional meal on our last night.

We will definitely return but will opt to stay in the main building next time.

We stayed for a long weekend and found that everything exceeded our expectations. It's in an ideal location and is very good in every way. The public rooms are very comfortable and welcoming (though they do get quite busy with non-residents). We stayed in a standard double and although the rooms are not large, they are perfectly adequate, comfortable and very well equipped. The standard of decor throughout is very tasteful and the place is immaculately clean, Breakfast is excellent and dinner is good. The staff are friendly and welcoming.

Having eaten at the Angel Inn on numerous occasions whilst camping in the are, we decided a stay in the winter would be a great way to see us through to camping season.

The family room was superb with s separate childrens room off the main room with its own TV, yet still leaving the main room spacious.

The Inn itself is warm and inviting with open fires and comfy leather chairs and sofas creating a relaxing atmosphere where you can just chill out, read the paper & have a coffee and all the staff are friendly.

We booked in the restaurant for dinner, having previously only eaten lunch and breakfast there. The waiters were friendly, attentive and knew the products they were promoting, but the best bit was the food which was outstanding! It was packed with flavour and beautifully presented. Being in the food industry, our standards are extremely high and we rarely eat out as we are usually disappointed, so it was a rare delight to enjoy such a beautiful meal in lovely surroundings.

We will definately be returning!
