Loved everything from the spotless accommodation to the comfort and welcome from hosts Graeme and Shirley. We have stayed in Bowness regularly for the past 2 years at a variety of places. Virginnia Cottage is superb. Would like to stay here from now on.
location, sitting room, fridge
A little bit cold in the rooms at times.
the room with jacuzzi and free hotel pass to pool and gym
Very comfortable and welcoming, the sherry and biscuits in the lounge were a nice touch, as were the sweet treats in the room. We loved the spa bath and 4 poster too! Would stay again.
The room was comfortable, warm and well presented. The view from the window was great. We were looked after by friendly, helpful hosts and breakfast was the perfect start to a day out walking.
We stayed at Christmas and it was beautiful very comfortable and the breakfast was 10/10
Because we stayed at Christmas it was quite cold in our room and we could hear the transport and people very clear and loud outside our window
my wife and i both love the lakes and bowness no exception its ideal for what we want nice to walk around stayed in 3 places and liked them all plus nites out a very nice w/end was had by both
Attentive hosts, complimentary spa visit included in the price, great breakfast choice, comfortable and clean room, complimentary sherry and mince pies, free wi-fi, great location and free parking nearby
brilliant spa bath complimentary biscuits and sherry
noise from busy road
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
