You will get everything.
Little extra walk from station
very welcoming so polite, nothing faced both Yana&Ian
Yana & Ian were a very welcoming couple. They told us where the best places to visit and eat, as this was our first visit to Windermere this was very helpful. The breakfast was delicious and we were given different Danish pastries on our table very morning which were lovely. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and our bed was very comfortable and everything we needed was supplied in the room. If we ever have the chance to go back to Windermere we would book again at Holly-Wood Guest House.
Just a short walk to the centre of Windermere. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. Our room was spacious and well equipped. There was a good choice for breakfast, and 'nothing was too much trouble'. I even mentioned that it was our wedding anniversary and an hour later we had a card slid under our door - a nice little touch. I would not hesitate to stay there again if every back in the Lake District.
We were made very welcome by yana and Ian from the minute we arrived. The room was cosy and comfortable - perfect to relax after very active days on the lakes. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the whole day. Thanks a million - we'll be back for more!
Location, breakfast, room, big shower
friendly and helpful ,nice food .
The hosts st Holly-Wood are lovely people who accommodated my little extras in a thoroughly gracious and excellent manner. Breakfast was just wonderful, especially the French press coffee, a true surprise.
A really comfy bed, great breakfast and really lovely welcome. It was great that the owners knew all of the guests by name. As a lone traveller I felt very comfortable.
The location was very quiet, the breakfasts very generous and very hospitable hosts
Our hosts were wonderful and looked after us so well, our room was just what we wanted, breakfast was amazing.
There was nothing to dislike.
Had a lovely break at The Holly-Wood. Yana and Ian were perfect hosts. Everything about the Holly-Wood was perfect. We will certainly be back again.
Very welcoming, great breakfast, comfortable beds, good value for money.
Right in heart of the Lakes and convenient for town centre. Great value and a warm welcome.
Onsite parking limited but never had an issue finding places on road outside front door.
Excellent hotel with a warm and friendly welcome
Yana and Ian were great hosts and she even brought some meds left behind to the train station
There were no face cloths. We wereon the 3rd floor lots of stairs Tell people to request 1st floor
- Friendly and very kind staffs. - The typical English breakfast was very delicious. The local black pudding was also tasty. Marmalade is hand-made. We also think that the red beans was hand-made... for sure it is not from Heinz. 日本人の方へ スタッフのイアンさんにお部屋まで案内して頂いた際、「洗濯物は干さないで」とお願いされました。説明によると、日本人女性２名が以前泊まられた際に大洗濯をされ、大掛かりな干し方をされ、カーペットやベッドがビチャビチャになったんだとか・・・ 旅行中に洗濯する感覚は世界共通ではないので、気をつけたいですね。実は私たちも洗濯はしましたが、下着と靴下程度だったので、夜の間はバスルームで干し、乾ききれてないものは朝、部屋に置いてあったヘアドライヤーで乾かしました。 気をつけるべきはその程度だと思います。朝ごはんはとても美味しかったし、スタッフ（イアンさんとヤナさん）も感じがとても良かったです。
We had a cosy, clean, spacious room within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Lake Windermere was a slightly longer walk, but very manageable. An added bonus was a guest fridge to chill our wine.
Room is very clean; Bathroom is big and clean; Very quiet;
A bit far away from Windermere pier
We were greeted when we arrived by Ian who was very polite and then assisted us with our luggage to our rooms. We meet Yana the following morning who again was very polite. They deserve top awards for cleanliness and hospitality, everything was excellent. Within the house was little extra touches which made it that extra special. We would definitely recommend.
Ian & Yana really care about their guest, I felt very welcome! Breakfast is great and the rooms are beautiful. I would recomment this place to everyone and stay there again if I ever return to the Lakes! Thanks for everything!!
