Friendly staff, great breakfast and lovely room would recommend to my friends and will return

Great position. Able to park. Lovely breakfast.
Location excellent Friendly staff Clean room Good breakfast
The Rain (haha)
Super breakfast, anything you want you can have. Good efficient service. Some good restaurants on doorstep and a good Cinema showing new films.
The rain !!!!!
The location is fine. You can park your car only if there are not many visitors
The rooms are below par. For 70 pounds a night it is way too expensive.I dont know how these many people have given a good rating. May be we are not British to get a friendly treatment.The staff are not friendly. Please avoid this place.There are many other places to stay in Winder mere.
Everything about it,location,cleanliness, comfort,lovely staff and great breakfasts.
nothing to dislike !!
Friendly hosts.Cosy rooms.Hearty breakfast and decent parking which is a big plus in the area.Close to many restaurants and pubs.Lake windermere just down the hill.
Can hear traffic from main road during night and early morning.After a day out not everyone would appreciate walking up the hill.
Very Welcoming, a lovely place and great breakfast.
Sweeteners were not made available only sugar.
The location was great. Near places to eat and the ferry. Staff was friendly.. Having a car space.
The car parking was tight but nothing can be done because of the size of the property. Still glad to be able to park.
Excellent location, comfortable room, comfortable bed, high standard of cleanliness, lovely breakfast (wonderful fruit salad!). Extra parking just outside.
Bit of a tight squeeze on the little car park but we appreciated the fact that we could park there.
Nicely located on the outskirts of town so not too far to walk home from pubs. Cinema with 3 screens next door. Friendly staff
Shower not powerful enough Bed squeaky Breakfast served from 8:45 - earlier would have been better
Everything, espeacially breakfast
the old courthouse was very clean good price,the staff was excellent
Great location, spotlessly clean and great host.
Great location, a mile from Windermere and about a 1/2 mile to the lake. Next to a cinema was a plus for moviegoers. Sue, our hostess, was absolutely fabulous and ever so helpful with recommended hiking trails, sights and attractions, food choices and restaurants, and overall just made our stay really, really comfortable. Sue deserves a 10. I'm glad we decided to stay in Bowness instead of Windermere. Will now have to plan a return visit to see more of the beautiful Lake District.
Parking is a bit tight for three autos. Being on the main road, it can be a little noisy in the early morning. Accommodations were just average but comfortable.
Sue is a very attentive and obliging host.
Bedrooms could perhaps do with an upgrade/updating
Owner of the b&b was lovely made us feel welcome. Lovely clean room. Lovely breakfast both mornings we were there. Less then 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants, pubs and the lake.
Very small flat screen tv. Couldn't see it when lying in bed at night time. Had to sit at the end of bed to watch it. Couldn't pick up any wi-fi what so ever in the whole b&b.
very clean and friendly good breakfast
Good breakfast, friendly staff
Room a bit tired
Friendly staff, great location, comfy bed!!!
Excellent breakfast and staff.
Room facilties disappointing, not as advertised.
Fantastic B & B with character and charm. Really friendly and helpful staff and very Clean. Fantastic breakfast.
The landlady was very friendly and welcoming and everything was clean. The location was fine for me - handy for the ferry, bus stop, shops, etc.
In spite of it being August, the weather turned very chilly, but the central heating could not be switched on. I really didn't expect to sit watching TV in the evening with my coat on (over a jumper and thermal top) - not my idea of 4-star comfort! I had to steel myself to use the shower - knowing I'd have to freeze when getting out. If the management could be more flexible about the heating, then I would recommend this hotel to other people.
Everything, excellent service, excellent location, nothing was to much for them to help
