A perfect place to stay
The service we received was outstanding from the moment we arrived until we left. Nothing was too much trouble. We mentioned our TV was not working and by the time we arrived back later in the day it had been sorted. The breakfast was beautifully cooked and the poached eggs were fantastic every day. It is perfectly situated for restaurants and the lake. Would certainly recommend this guest house and hope to return there soon.

Very Good8.0
A friendly, comfortable guest house.
The hotel was in a nice quiet neighborhood, the rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was amazing, but was reasonable. The parking area is very cramped but street parking is free and easy. Jane was very friendly and gave us great advice on things to do around the area. Her home-made marmalade was the highlight of breakfast! Some reviewers have mentioned that they would have liked the breakfast timing to be more flexible - we found that they were happy to provide a continental breakfast (croissant, roll, fruit, yogurt) as room service or packed to take away, earlier or later.

The perfect B and B
The perfect stay in the perfect location! Mark and Jane are the perfect hosts- very knowledgable about the local area, and nothing is too much trouble. Very friendly welcome and goodbye. Most amazing cooked breakfast we have ever had- easy location to walk to either Bowness or windemere (about 15 mins) but it is on a hill. But it's a very pleasant walk. There is nothing we could fault and would definitely stay here again.
