Great Breakfast Good Choice Menu, ON arrival They gave us a Piece of Homemade Carrot Cake Excellent, would Book Again, Great Weekend, Pool put the icing on the cake.
The room was pleasant and very clean, breakfasts were excellent, staff were lovely and helpful and also the bonus of a swimming pool - great! Lovely place to stay.
We arrived late on our first night due to bad traffic but the staff/owner went out of their way to ensure we could check in OK and we had everything we needed. They also brought us a continental breakfast in bed on our first morning so we could sleep in until 9.30. The pool is fantastic, and it was great to be able to go for a swim after a day driving in the lakes. The location was perfect and the room extremely quiet and very comfortable. The breakfast was also excellent.
The only slight disappointment was that the king size bed was actually 2 large singles joined together, but this did not detract from a fantastic and very comfortable stay in the hotel.
Everything was fab. From a full english breakfast, pool the room everything was brilliant will definatly be back again. Very clean and well looked after. Central to all bars restaraunts shops etc.
Location, room, breakfast all A1. Pool, just the thing. Loved it Even had it's own bar.
Designer bed posts, watch out! Car park can be a struggle but hey ho, it has one.
The guesthouse was a great place to stay as a base for exploring the Lake District. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and the breakfast area was pleasant. Also the heated indoor swimming pool was a good place to relax. Overall excellent.
All the above. Enjoyed the opportunity of a later breakfast at 9.30
Parking a bit awkward
Everything from the moment we walked in to the moment we left.
Lovely comfortable bedrooms- great sized bed. Pleasant staff, couldn't do enough for us. Great location
Swimming pool a little small with what looked like a garden shed at the end of it - the only downside to the whole experience
Central location, clean,modern, well maintained room.
From the time we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, our hosts were very helpful with knowledge of the area and walking tracks. We loved every bit of our stay and will be back.
the hotel was in a good place every one was very friendly we enjoyed our stay and would go back again the breakfast was good
been the first room you could here every one coming up the stairs
The owners were extremely friendly - it is so nice to be greeted by one's name - and were interested to know what activities were planned and to provide advice. Room (single, in the attic) was unusual but comfortable.
Because of its location the wardrobe in my room was an unusual shape and it was very awkward trying to get clothes onto the fixed hangers.
Excellent location, only 5 minutes' walk from Windermere Station. Nice English breakfast with choices. Well taken care by Kate and Barry. Ver nice staff. Quite room with comfortable bed. Nice swimming pool, warm water.
Body jet shower could be more powerful, if possible.
Kate, Barry and staff were welcoming, pleasant and helpful. Above average room and décor with an extremely comfortable bed. Interesting guests from many countries. We particularly liked the first floor outdoor patio area with a view.
Staff couldn't be more helpful
The peacefulness, comfort, very clean and a great cooked breakfast. We could not fault anything at all, staff very friendly and a lovely warm welcome.Located in the best place, just a five minute walk away from the pubs, restaurants and shops.
Staff friendy/helpful, nice decorations, the special shower in my room (no.6), breakfast ...
Steep stairs, difficult with heavy luggage and for older people (I managed fine despite being one of those!)
Excellent breakfast and a good pool.
Very friendly staff who left you to do your own thing, but there if needed for information or advice
The host and hostess were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good.
Loss of Wifi on Tuesday eve and early Wed morning. Otherwise reception was okay.
Our room had been "serviced", (bed made) but no toiletries replaced. When I asked for them, they were apologetic and happy to give them to me.
near the station
Spent two nights for honeymoon, We were left alone so had lots of privacy, especially liked the terrace area and the room was lovely. Liked the private parking. Location was perfect.
Wasn't keen on the sausage at breakfast, could have been better quality (sausages make or break a breakky) and the hash brown was soggy, minor issues, didn't hamper our view of the place.
