The experience was great and both husband and wife were very kind and helpful. We loved the tea and freshly baked croissants. Its really close to city centre and a nice stretch to the water bodies.

Enjoyed the continental breakfast choices. No frills, well loved accomodation with parking in a central position.

They used the card I used as security to take payment immediately I booked without consent - this was an issue because I wanted to pay the bill with cash only to find they had already used my payment card - not acceptable in my view and I thought against the rules of Booking.com

The property had a rather nasty smell as we walked through the door. Off putting. Rooms were ok. Also only continental breakfast this Needs to be made clear at time of booking.

I loved the house and it was slap bang in the middle of everything iwe loved it it was great value for money we did however expect a full English breakfast and got toast and jam with coffee but it was very good value for money so no complaints there

location and friendliness of staff

After being stuck in traffic, me & my girlfriend arrived only 10 minutes before booking in closed, & were met by a very abrupt & rude landlord. We went down to breakfast the next morning, only to be served toast which quite clearly was mouldy. after reporting it to the landlord he stopped being abrupt & rude to us as he was obviously embarrassed by the incident. On our second night my girlfriend, after having a shower received a knock on the door as water was leaking down into the bedroom below. I was out at the time & just arrived back in time to see the landlord walking out of the room below carrying wet bed linen & apologising to the guests in that room. A very comical weekend by all accounts with Basil & Sybble!

Toast was overdone on both mornings. When there wasn't an empty clean table for breakfast we were encouraged to share a table with another couple as the owner was reluctant to clear up a table for us. Needless to say, as lovely as the other couple seemed, I chose to clear the dirty table myself and borrowed some clean plates/cups from another table. Being on a romantic weekend away, and not being a morning person, didnt want to sit with strangers for my breakfast much.
Excellent location, gorgeous room ( room 7 the large double), bed was really comfy, amazing nights sleep, would stay here again, good breakfast selection -fresh fruit, croissants etc.

Breakfast is continental style and a little disappointing. Although the en-suite bathroom was clean and modern, there were no hooks for hanging towels / robes and no shelving for products like shampoo and shower gel. I was very surprised that complimentary toiletries are not provided so I had to go out and buy shampoo. I have never stayed at a hotel or B&B that doesn't provide mini toiletries before!
Holly Cottage is situated right in the centre of Bowness on Windermere and is close to all the shops, bars, restaurant and a short stroll from the waterfront. Our room was bright, clean and spacious and the gardens are very pretty. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful. There is also private off road parking.
