friendly , the room was lovely and well kept french style with extra large balcony didn't have breakfast as we were on a schedule so cannot advise on this, overall an enjoyable stay , thank you
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
Parking was a little bit snug but it was ok
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!
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.
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.
Really nice host, who was willing to out of his way to help his guests Good breakfast with fresh fruit
The ground floor smelled a bit of cat - but there was nothing in the room
Many rooms are facing a busy road, couldn't sleep because car noisy. WIFI singno is not stable.
Excellent location, peaceful and quiet, hosts very pleasant and helpful, parking place a big plus
The location is very good
The breakfast is simple.
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.
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 cottages was very close to shops and the lake, the couple who ran the place were very nice and helpful, the place was very clean, and I would go back their again.
Friendly and helpful owners,excellent central location
Near lake and all the shops
Room was a bit small and dated
People are friendly
Room is a bit old fashioned needs an upgrade: price too high for this sort of room
The decoration was poor could do with updating not much choice at breakfast and cleanliness wasn't very good there were chickens roaming around the hallway
view,closeness to town,private parking,

Car parking. Central location
Standard of room. Overall the establishment was in need of upgrading in all areas. We had water leaking from the ceiling ( shower in room above us) on two out of the 3nights we stayed there. Host was apologetic and said he would rectify the matter. We felt that it had happened before, as there was staining on the ceiling over the bed.
Very friendly hosts, Brilliant location, Great breakfast, Cosy room with great bathroom
Smelled a bit like cigarette smoke on the top level? Bed was a bit small for two average people and foam mattress made for a bit of a sore back come morning.
