We stayed in Bowness which was a lovely little town. The b&b was conveniently situated close to the town centre but on a quiet street just off it. The lake was only a 5 minute stroll down the hill and the boat trips were very relaxing with lovely scenery.
Location easy walking distance to restaurants and lake Food good
Slow wifi Metal framed bed
Good Location Good breakfast Comfy bed Nice lounge
Family room is not as described on booking.com Attic room with no seating area or a mountain view, or any view Slanted roof makes it difficult to move around.
Clean rooms good breakfast, 10 mins walk to lake Windermere with shops and restaurants on the way, friendly hosts and good value.
Parking could be a pain on street free if there are spaces,also would have liked a room with a window ours was attic room with no view.
We were made to feel very welcome. Lovely cooked breakfast and very friendly staff. Ideal location for seeing all the sights of bowness
Could never get the wifi to work
Well located, service excellent and great breakfast provided.
Car parking limited and well away from hotel. Size of room rather small
Hosts were good. Rooms were clean.
No view. No parking at site.
The area was lovely
The room was pathetic we were given an attic room which was hideously small . We weren't happy with paying £80 for half a room!!!!!
The place is lovely, clean and comfortable and very efficiently run by a couple super friendly brothers. It is the perfect spot to enjoy excursions in the Lake District as well as some nice night life but without being in a city centre.
Close to all amenities in Bowness. Room small and clean, but decoration in need of general updating. Very loud extractor fan in bathroom. Lovely breakfast.
Parking a bit of a nightmare when busy.
The family room or so called was a tiny area with a bed and a table and a chair in-between and no place to walk around. Bathroom standard was very poor. Room was small with slanting roof with a 1 feet sq window which can be opened if it is not raining. Sad situation. Linen torn have a few pictures sent to booking.com but no response. Two old brother's are running the place. A bit miserly displayed so called breakfast. Wifi…no it only works in their living room. You can sit there and use the wifi.
Great location. The owners are real foodies and provide the best breakfast. Beds are comfy.
Slight smell in the bathroom, but nothing too off putting.
Location. Food. Hospitality
Breakfast only between 8 & 9 Smallish bedroom without dressing mirror over dressing table Would have & briefly did benefit from a female touch
The breakfast was amazing good food and lots of it
Difficult to find and use Wi-Fi
The staff was so helpful and very patient at giving me advice on how to travel around Windermere. The lake is 10 minutes far and there are many fantastic restaurants around the hotel.
Very helpful & friendly owners, breakfast was great, location fantastic. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
Parking availability was limited.
Good location. Excellent breakfasts. Clean and comfortable bed.Friendly atmosphere
Parking was a problem
all of this Guest house Top class
everything about it was very good
no wi-fi in bedroom
Good location close to Beatrix Potter exhibition and walking distance to Lake.
Room 2 was very comfortable
Room 3 was small and the mattress needed replacing.
everything was very clean.the hosts were polite and helpful. the breakfasts were to die for.
the room and en suite were on the small side,
Location - Only about a 5 minute walk from the lake. Passing shops and pubs along the way. So many to choose from. Staff - Very friendly and always happy to help. Happy to leave my luggage in reception after checking out and before catching my train home.
I wasn't driving but if I were then I could see why parking might be a problem. WiFi was a little weak in the rooms sometimes and I had to move about the room to get it back, but it didn't cause me any real problems.
many restaurants in 3 mins walking distance, 7 mins walk to the lakeside delicious English full b'fast
Great wifi in sitting room only Shower hot enough but quite slow Cooking smell full of the house
