“Fantastic B&B”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Visited Number 80 Bed then breakfast for two nights from the 4th April 2014 with my girlfriend. On arrival we received a very warm welcome from Colin and this set this the scene for a pleasant but very wet weekend. We stayed in Room 2 which is nicely decorated and has a very comfortable double bed. The room has a small 2 seater settee to watch the tv or you can choose to play the numerous DVD's that are available free from a cabinet in the entrance foyer. Towels' are changed every other day which is fine. Breakfast was very tasty and substantial, the service and presentation being much better than most budget hotels. My partner has asked that I comment a bit more on the breakfast, she loves fresh fruit for breakfast as an alternative to a cooked one. This is very much a personal choice and should not detract from what was a great meal to start the day. We were both delighted to find a small chiller cabinet located in the hallway so that we could chill our wine. A variety of drink glasses were also available for use. I also need to mention the free and speedy WIFI.

We would certainly use No 80 again. Colin and Mandy's warm character, modern looking rooms such as room No 2, some great extras such as the DVD, wine chiller, glasses and tea & Coffee making facilities and I haven't even mentioned the close proximately to the town makes this an excellent B&B.

Room Tip: We used Room No 2 that had a small two seater sofa.

Great stay at number 80 B&B, great location, nice and comfortable room, good breakfast, and the owners went always over the expectations to make our stay great... For the price , experience and friendliness of C and M it is a great place to stay when visiting Lake District

Booked on the off chance, and very pleased we did
Colin & Mandy are an easy going couple
The room was very well presented, clean and comfortable.
En-suite equally matching room
TV & DVD player (loads of films downstairs to borrow if required)
Breakfast was excellent good choice and well cooked
My only gripe, and it is really only to be expected in these old buildings, the stairs are on the steep side. My old legs knew they had gone up two flights!!
Well situated close to Bowness, easy walking distance to town centre

Room Tip: Book early if you want four-poster!

We stayed at Number 80 Bed then Breakfast for two nights midweek in February. It was absolutely wonderful! Perfect location and fantastic host in Colin. We have visited brownness a number of times and there is definitely nowhere else we will be staying from now on. I'm already planning my next visit!!

I can't praise this B and B enough. Fantastic location, amazing rooms, brilliant hosts and the best breakfast we have had. They really can't do enough for you, if Bowness is where you are going then there is no where else I would consider, can't wait to go back......BOOK IT NOW X

Room Tip: I would advise number 1 or our room 4. Ignore the swimming pool review it doesn't have one lol

Stayed with my boyfriend. The room was decorated with rose petals and heart balloons and it was lovely. We stayed in room 1. Nice size for a couple. En-suite a little small but perfectly formed and has everything you'd need. Colin and Mandy were excellent hosts. Our room was totally turned around with new sheets and towels after our first night (the fella had a fever in the first night) and Colin was so accommodating it was great. Thoroughly recommend staying here. Breakfast was lovely both mornings and couldn't find a single fault. Also free wi-fi is a bonus.
