Enough said above only the weather could have been better. Absence of TV and loud music in the bar and dining area. The food was good.
£80 for a one night stay is heading towards too pricey
A lovely old inn in the best part of the Lake District. Log fires, low beamed ceilings to bang your head on, excellent food (locally sourced with enormous breakfasts), real ale. Friendly, welcoming staff. Go there!
The staff couldnt do enough for you, the food was good and reasonably priced, they even had entertainment in the bar, which was excellent. Only a short drive from wasdale for the mountains, (15-20 mins) which is why we picked this place. Ample parking, free (relatively fast) wifi, separate reception, great breakfast - overall very happy with the stay.
The bathrooms. They were ok and looked like they were cleaned regularly, but there was a lot of mould and the shower shield was coming away from the wall resulting in a very wet floor.
I have always loved the Bower House having known it from childhood. The location is fabulous and you can imagine just how the the old inn looked some hundreds of years ago. Garden is great although not particularly used in November!
Bedrooms are very small, although manageable and the food is not cheap for a pub type menu.
We stayed for a long weekend of hiking and found the Bowerhouse Inn to be everything you'd want from a country pub experience. Clean, super friendly with good beer and large food servings. Would recommend
Location was perfect for me and the staff were very helpful - and the food was excellent!
Breakfast and food was fantastic. Room was big and clean shame about the fan
Noise from fan in kitchen. No phone reception and wifi worked in certain locations
The pub was great because it was busy with both visitors and locals, and was dog-friendly, which is nice to see even though we don't have a dog. The food was amazing - great selection of traditional and more adventurous hearty meals. Good selection of beers too.
We booked a specific table for our evening meal, but when we arrived a group of other people had taken it and clearly had no intention of moving, though our name was there on the table. We were a bit wimpish and said it was okay, but it would have been nice if the staff had at least asked them to move. Still, it's only a table - we had a great time anyway and we'll be back!
Everything! Best place we stayed at during the weeks of touring the UK. Well worth the extra travelling to get out of the tourist filled Lakes villages. Amazing pub well frequented by the locals and visitors alike. Great garden for those with children or to just eat / drink outdoors on days that the weather allows. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
Be aware of SatNav directions taking you over Wrynose and Hard Knott Passes which are extremely challenging and not for the faint hearted!! If you are travelling in anything larger than a normal car don't even think of it!!
Warm, comfortable hotel with friendly staff ably led by Beth. A great choice of breakfasts plus reasonably priced, well prepared, meals. Our group will book again next year in this not too expensive hotel.
helpful hotel staff friendly bar staff good wi-fi log fires relaxed feeling very good breakfast
window catch was broken so the window didnt close properly, hence noisy by the road.
Beer excellent. Very good menu, reasonably priced and good quality. Very pleasant staff and comfortable accommodation. Excellent 'outside' area to sit and drink/smoke/eat.
Some basic maintenance needed in bathroom.
excellent quiet location low and high level walks very close clean comfy rooms good pub food tim taylors, loweswater ales friendly efficient staff whom I would like to thank good value for money even the weather was great
the rooms are comfy clean and cosy but not luxurious and this is not a criticism just getting your expectation realistic I had to leave
Location Some staff great
Noisy needs door between bar and bedroom area
Dinner was excellent although no parmesan cheese was offered with the pasta dish. When asked for it took 15 mins to arrive and came in slices not ground. Bar drinks and atmosphere great.
Warm and friendly with good food. Beautifully laundered Egyptian cotton sheets bad pillowcases
Very friendly staff and lovely relaxing stay in the best valley in the lakes. A true gem
I couldn't stay longer
Our Rad in our bedroom could not be switched off
Garden and flower pots and residents lounge.
For a future visit we would ask for a room not overlooking the road as the noise was invasive unless the window was firmly closed.
Peace & quiet Food & Drink Comfortable Rooms Great views Access to rural areas Open roads (We were on a motorcycle weekend).
It's a bit remote so if you're looking for access to a town for a drink or some food, you may have to allocate a designated driver.
Great beer and food served by friendly hosts in a nice atmosphere.
Arrived and checked in without problems. Shown to room and found to be good quality and very clean. Nice bar serving cask ales and good food menu. Quiet location resuled in a good night sleep
Hotel is very isolated and therefore has no phone signal. This is however common in the area. Popularity of the restraunt ment reserved tables , and as a resident , we had to sit outside
Excellent welcome at the bar. very good food. extremely polite, cheerful and helpful staff - except for the manageress, who was abrupt, grumpy, and gave the impression that guests were a major inconvenience to her. One instance (of several); having told guests that breakfast was from 8.00 till 10.00, she was complaining loudly that some were appearing at five to ten!
There is no lock on the outer door of the building where most of the guests' rooms are. During our second night we were disturbed by a couple who had walked in and who knocked at each room asking if there was anyone they could speak to about booking a room. It was 5 a.m.
The Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food was excellent. I am a vegetarian who hates goats cheese and rarely have much chose (goats cheese normally dominates all menus) Here I had a good chose and the vegetarian options were some of the best I've had anywhere. Well done. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning especially as there are still good walks close by not done!
Minor problem but the room was on the small side so the tea and coffee facilities in the room were difficult to use (room 7) Would have been nice to have hot chocolate as an option too.
