Would Stay Again

Posted 14-Jul-2015
Pros: Beautiful bed, lovely view, comfortable.
Cons: There isn't much that can be done about the sloping room and small bathroom. It's an older home (although in great condition), and space is limited.
Location: Walk the National Trust Trail lakeside; take a boat tour; allow time for children to play at the visitor's center
This is a lovely hotel with a pleasant staff and wonderful food. Parking is tight, but available. The room we were in slept three. It had a nice view of the lake and comfortable beds. The bathroom is small, and the room slopes...the advantage being if something falls, you know which direction to look to find it. We only stayed one night, but I'd definitely book again.

Lovely and close to town, cafes etc.

Posted 09-Jun-2015
Pros: LLoved my room, the staff, the location.
Cons: Parking bays a bit daunting to start off with. Maybe all (5) should be horizontal, with one crossways at bottom!
Location: We visited B.Potter shop and display p,U.S. Hill Top and Wray Castle. We ventured to Carlisle to see C.castle and C.cathedral, as well as Sizergh cast
Great location to see The Lakes historical sites.

An overnighter

Posted 26-May-2015
Driving down from Scotland to London we used Windermere as a break in the journey. Andrew who greated us was extremely enthusiastic and cheerful the rest of the service staff were also polite. Pretty much a standard b and b. Weren't there long enough for a more detailed review.

Didn't get fresh coffee for the breakfast. There is a small shower booth for a family room which wasn't pleasant. Stuff didn't know Lake District much. If you have a big car, private parking was way too small.

Very lovely small hotel, nicely placed in the town

Posted 16-Apr-2015
Pros: Staff and breakfasts were great.
Cons: Dining area and bar area were pretty small, not massively comfortable/inviting. Not a problem if you're out exploring most of the time.
Happy stay, delicious breakfasts and very friendly staff. Room was great, quite small for a family of 4, but manageable. Great base for exploring the Lakes.

perfect choice

A perfect venue for our weekend away. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The location was perfect, just a few minutes walk down to the lake. The room was spotless and comfortable and had everything we needed. We would definitely come back and stay again

A welcoming hotel

Posted 28-Dec-2014
Pros: Friendliness
Cons: Plumbing in the shower. Size of shower/bathroom a tad small for family room but guess not too much can be done about that.
Location: The Lakes, Beatrix Potter, Kirkstone pass, many restaurants and pubs nearby
Excellent Bowness location, Excellent service and very friendly staff. All you could expect from a Guest house hotel of this type. Great breakfast! Arrive early for parking. Would recommend for short break in the lakes
