The full English breakfast is by far the best we have ever had at any hotel, everything just cooked to perfection, the owners were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them, we went for a relaxing break from the children and that is certainly what we had, comfortable, friendly, very local to town
Really clean , nice fresh whiten bedding ( a must for me !) Nice touches : home made biscuits in room & complimentary sherry and shortbreads in the snug. :-)Delicious breakfast and perfect location for our favourite resteraunt The village inn - had the perfect xmas break ! Thank you !
warm room, comfy bed, good breakfast, central position.
Everything about the cottage and the staff. The town was lovely with lots of friendly pubs with friendly people, excellent place to dine out.
The rain on day one.
Great location, 2 minutes to the lake and great restaurants. Large comfortable room, spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast and lovely hosts.
The location was a great place as it was the 1st time in the lakes.The hotel itself was so friendly couldnt knock anythink and would stay there again enjoyed everythink about the place
The cooked breakfast could have included a bit more. However we thoroughly enjoyed our stay
We liked the room that we were allocated the veiw was superb the breakfast was good and plenty of it.
the only critisisum would be that the toilet was cramped and you had to lock the door on the outside to stop it opening into the room
Stayed here a number of times ,always a friendly welcome, comfortable well appointed rooms with all mod cons and great location for amenities.Must also mention excellent breakfast in spacious surroundings
The room (basic double) was great Very comfortable and clean Breakfast lovely Proprietors and staff very friendly and helpful Dog friendly
Mouldy shower Sloping bed
On booking, I was impressed by the caring attitude of our hosts, Graeme & Shirley, who also posted an email of confirmation. They also attached travelling and stay details which made it easier for us to plan ahead. Their care last through the whole of our stay. Graeme even kindly took over the task of disposing of my old suitcase which I had to replace when the handle came off on our arrival. The guest house is in a very good location, hardly a three minute walk from the lakeshore at Bowness. It is nice, homely and clean. The breakfast is good, and you even have the continental option if, like me, you enjoy the English breakfast but find it too heavy to have it on a daily basis.
The guest house is located on a relatively "busy" road in one of the busiest areas of the lake district and there is hardly any space to pull up a small car on the side of the road to unload the luggage. All said, Virginia Cottage guests have free use of the car park which is a 2-minute walk up the road (but which can be very crowded during the week-end).
Convenience to the lake and shops and restaurants Comfortable bed and lovely refurbished bathroom Sherry and lovely homemade biscuits in the lounge and in our room was a nice touch Very nice breakfast
Nothing to dislike
Very comfortable 4 poster bed in a half panelled room with an excellent view across the town to the distant fells

Nothing to dislike!
Could not fault anything
Location was fantastic. The building is a period property and full of charm. The room very tastefully furnished and comfortable. Breakfast was one of the best we have had with good quality produce obviously used.
Room overlooked road and slight noise outside on Friday and Saturday night but only minor problem. I am a light sleeper. Husband didn't hear a thing!!!
