Centre of Lake District for sightseeing. 5 min walk to large choice of 'eateries'. Very friendly and welcoming guest house. Facilities all spotless.
Room slightly cramped with small ensuite - but OK.

Central location, good breakfast, great hosts nothing to much trouble spotlessly clean and on site parking a bonus. Highly recommended.
The Holmlea guest house was fantastic all round. Great breakfast and beds! The beds were so so good
Location was excellent. Only 5 minutes from lates and attractions
Breakfast was poor. hash browns were soggy I found a hair in the tomatoes. smallest sausage I have ever seen and anemic bacon. No mushrooms. I wasn't informed about the use of the swimming pool until our last day and we found out ourselves. Cheak in was far to late 4 o'clock. After a long drive just wanted to Check in and relax but was made to wait around for 4 hours. Most bnbs Check in at 12.
everything, food . ambiance, location, proprietors
It was near the town, they offered packed lunches, breakfast was good, we stayed 3 nights and we had an option of using the hotel pool in town, this good for a rainy day.
The parking was tight, but not a problem
Friendly owner. Nice clean room. Good facilities. Excellent breakfast both in quantity and quality. Location of guest house is excellent too, being only five minutes from the lake. I would gladly go there again if I return to Windermere.
Excellent location, just a minute walk into the town centre. Lovely facilities with free off road parking! Host was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. The spa is a must as well, absolutely beautiful! Thanks for a very enjoyable stay!
Beautifully clean and comfortable. Friendly owner. Freshly cooked breakfast. Near to Bowness centre so no need to move the car, however very peaceful. Can't beat privately owned B&B's.
The room was a good size and the en suite. Very clean, tidy.and comfortable Breakfast was good and plentiful. Great location only 5 min walk to Lake Windemere and 3 min walk to the shops, bars & restaurants.
Location was ideal, very close to the lake and lots of pubs and restaurants and not too far away from the station. Breakfast was really good as well. No complaints really
Very good Location. Breakfast is good.
Hot water is too noisy
Wifi Water supply
Beautiful b&b in a perfect location. Nice cosy and clean bay fronted room (room 3). Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. Will be returning very soon, shame we were not staying longer.
Location and staff friendliness
Comfort & cleanliness
Bacon very tough. Seemed to be reluctant to offer alternative to cereal. Did not seem to know much about anywhere worth a visit en route to York.
John and Gill were very obliging. Lovely welcome and good food. Very clean and location was just right.
Quiet, respectful guests, kindness of tenant, excellent information about the site. To recommend
Clean room and good facilities. Friendly staff. So close to the town centre, lierally 5 minutes walk. Good breakfast.
The room was not in the main guest house; we had a very relaxing sleep. The owners are very welcoming and the guest house location is great.
The shower was hard to get in and out of.
Excellent location. Good information of area and places to visit and eat in booklet. Friendly host.
Could do with having a lounge with board games/magazines at hand for those of us who don't stay out late.
