Room was small
Very kind,friendly and hospitable owners, very clean and comfortable bedroom and dining room. A very pleasant weekend.
Going out walking for the day and looking forward to a cooked breakfast but not served before 8.45am....tea, cereal and toast on offer and an apology....hey ho
The location of the B&B is fantastic. Having free car parking great. Breakfasts are brilliant. Beds very comfortable. House spotless. Owner very friendly and welcoming.
There was nothing to dislike.
comfy bed, clean premises
limited check in-times. Low water pressure in shower
Friendly Staff Very Clean Lovely Breakfast
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.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. Lovely clean and homely place
Everything was lovely their, really please. Though maybe a more powerful shower haha. X
Lovely owner Nice breakfast Great location
Parking was a pain Towels too few and too small Nice but dated
Everything was excellent from the quality of the room to the breakfast and the fact you could park and walk into the town in under 5 minutes was a massive bonus. We stayed in one of the Ground Floor Annex rooms which was spotless and felt almost like you were in your own private appartment. Would have no hesitation to re-book.
Nothing at all.
Location Bed Quiet
Shower water pressure Breakfast time
spotlessly clean, short wall to town center, great brekfast,
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.
