Stayed here for two nights. First time taking a trip away with our dog. It was a lovely hotel in a great location with parking. Our dog was very happy here! The toffees and sherry were a lovely touch. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel while visiting family in the area. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Wonderfully comfortable nights sleep in an amazing four poster bed. Full Cumbrian breakfast was served by very friendly staff and was absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting to visit Lake Windermere.

Great one night stay in this quirky, comfortable accommodation. Location is 2 minute walk to the start of Bowness and about a 15 minute walk to Windermere itself. The staff were absolutely fantastic, extremely helpful and hard working. We had a problem getting our vehicle out of the small car park at the back of the accommodation as we had...

My wife and I stayed here for a week with our 5 month old daughter, I was a little worried before we got there as a week can be a long time in a b&b however we couldn't have chosen a nicer place for our holiday! The location was excellent, walking distance to both Windermere and Bowness, where we could...

The place is a little tired and look somewhat tatty from the outside. The welcome, service and breakfast were all very good. The bedroom was nice and the bed comfy with good linen. The shower was pretty small and grubby.

We have just returned from a two night stay here. We received a warm welcome from Andrew on arrival who booked us in and showed us to our room. We had room 11 which was very handy for breakfast as the door to our room opened directly into the dining room next to a table for two! Our room was...
