Breakfast was delicious, staff are great, very friendly and helpful but not obtrusive, we were left to our own devises once we were given our keys. The rooms are dated but comfortable. Ours... More

Clean comfortable rooms. Reasonably priced. Friendly and helpful staff. This turned out to be a pleasant surprise on a one day, unplanned, family trip. Specially enjoyed the location of the place, almost in the middle of the small town

Stayed for three nights and would say that in terms of location, Monties is great. It is smack right in Bowness just across from the shops and just under five minutes walk to the Lake.

Great location in the heart of Bowness. The staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient. The rooms are well appointed, spacious and clean. The breakfast in the morning was tasty and plentiful. Lovely furnishings and a nice chilled out feel to it. We found the price to be fair and good value for the accommodation.
