Very relaxing and friendly environment. Great views of the valley and easy access to the fells.
the place it self was just right for my wife and i
Can't find anything to complain about, it was wonderful.
Friendly and helpful staff Excellent breakfast
We loved every minute of our stay at nanny brow it was a perfect superb homely hotel and we will be back in the summer .. loved it x
There's nothing we didn't like everything was excellent and very homely .
Location & setting. Tasty homemade cake on arrival!
The service was fabulous, the breakfast amazing. The rooms are stunning and cosy. Had a fabulous nights sleep and the freshly baked cake in the room each day was out of this world!!! The view is stunning, so peaceful.
The breakfast was served early (8.15am) if you are hoping for a lie in. However we had a couple of action packed days ahead and simply went down in pj bottoms and a sweatshirt then showered and got ready after!
the whole place was spotless and warm we were treated very well on arrival. made to feel right at home the food was excellent. the room was great and big would recommend this place to any one.
we only stayed the one night, not long enough.
Large rooms, great food. High quality and friendly service. Highly recommended.
Wonderful warm welcome by our hosts John and Emma. Outstanding accommodation and delicious breakfasts. Faultless service throughout our three night stay. Thoroughly recommend.
Didn't like having to leave!! Already planning our next visit!
Lovely room, excellent breakfast, and great helpfulness from Sue the owner!
WOuld have liked a bath rather than just a shower. Would have been nice to have been able to light the fire in the lounge, but not a big deal.
Rooms were comfortable and bathrooms spacious. Lovely breakfast cooked to order. Home baking in the room a nice touch.
I would have prefered a bath rather than shower room but understand this is in line with their environmental policy.
Lovely warm welcome, gorgeous surroundings and views. Fabulous suite and cake! Nothing too much trouble for anyone and seriously could not fault a thing.
Having to leave
The location,the owner,and the house,also really nice breakfast.room was so comfortable it also had a fantastic view
Nanny Brow is a beautiful place with awesome views and our hosts looked after us incredibly well over the weekend. The room that we stayed in was very nice and the cakes left in our room were delicious and a welcome treat after days spent out in the December Ambleside elements. For me, the pinnacle of our stay was breakfast. The 'full English' was hearty and everything that you would expect and more and the salmon and scrambled eggs and the 'drop scones' were amazing! My wife and I like to try different and new hotels whenever we go away but the next time we go to the Lake District, Nanny Brow will be the first hotel we try to book and we cannot wait to return.
Everything, would highly recommend.
Everything & everyone we met we were made to feel extremely welcome
the feel of the house
Myself and my Fiancee stayed here for a birthday celebration - the staff were very friendly and helful and the little touches like the homemade cake and the offer of a beer at 11pm when we arrived were very much apreciated. the owners were very helpful and the breakfast was amazing! all in all a great stay!
Nothing at all !!
- very bad staff - dogs everywhere - room heating was not working - insects in the room - there was a bad smell in all hotel areas - breakfast was horrible - bad location, you will need 40 min minimum to get taxi, and far away from the town
The accommodation and location was amazing.
the only little issue, was the mattress, needs to be changed, otherwise an excellent choice and great value for money
staff were very friendly and helpful.the hotel had a loverly veiw,it was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was top quality enjoyed my stay
Extremely helpful and courteous staff , Very comfortable rooms with a good view of the fells . Excellent choice for breakfast and local produce was very good indeed. two lovely lounge area's to sit and chill out reading or for a quite drink at the end of the day . will return again
