The external entrance and surrounds not good and even not clean. The arrangements of rooms not good, the rooms is very small size and utility area is very old and un higenic. It's very dirty and vorn our place. Need major refurbication. The food is also not very good.

We do not recognise the name of thiis guest as someone who has stayed with us. We also do not have a Utility Room [we are a guesthouse not a self catering property] and therefore suspect this is the wrong property being reviewed.

Claire and Stephen went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable - our party consisted of my teenaged daughter, myself and my elderly mother - all of us were very impressed! The vegetarian cooked breakfast was delicious, the rooms clean, bright and tastefully decorated and the beds comfortable. The location is peaceful but well placed to visit the North...

We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay with us at Ouse Bridge House and we are happy that you found it a "home from home." I do hope that Lea found her work experience very interesting that she undertook whilst visiting the Lake Distirict.

Angry South African receptionist- worst customer service ever, booked through booking.com for a wedding in August, they took the money straight away then I had to cancel so called for a refund but one week later still not had it, called again and the receptionist said angrily 'we are trying to run a guesthouse here, we will get round to...

This guest cancelled their booking with us and did not stay in July 2016 as stated in this Tripadvisor review. The booking was cancelled on Monday 11th July 2016 @ 16h53 and the deposit was refunded to the guest on Friday 15th July 2016 @ 17h16. We believe that a 4 day turnaround on a refund is reasonable and any...

Arrived at 5.30pm and given a warm welcome. Advised where local pubs and restaurants were. I was travelling alone but my room had a double bed and faced the lake with views of the yacht club and the mountains. The room had it's own private bathroom with bath and shower opposite. There is a guest lounge with honesty bar facing...

We have just had two nights staying at Ouse Bridge House and were very happy with the stay. Stephen and Claire helped us out after a booking mishap that had nothing to do with them. They are very welcoming and helpful hosts. Many hints were given for the rest of our journey around the UK. Our room was clean and...

My 6 year-old son and i spent 5 nights here last week and it was perfect. Hosts Claire and Stephen are extremely friendly, helpful and relaxed, always ready to have a chat and to recommend excursions etc. The breakfast was delicious and consistently so every morning (i'm convinced Stephen used to be a professional chef in his previous life!).
