Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed at Brooklands with my 12 & 10 year olds for one night prior to a fell race in the area. The owners were lovely, friendly and welcoming. Showing us to our room and explaining the breakfast order process and inquiring how our journey had been and what our plans were. At this point, they very kindly offered to prepare our breakfast a little earlier than their scheduled times to accommodate us - which I did not expect them to do as I had clear view of their breakfast times before booking and was planning to grab something when we got to our race. The b&b is in a good spot. I found it easily, good space to park. After being in the car for a while, the walk down into Bowness (about 20minutes to the restaurant we had booked) was nice. We all had a good night sleep, the beds & pillows were very comfortable. In the morning we again had a nice chat with the owners, breakfast was lovely, good quality bacon and sausage and eggs exactly as we liked them. The children also enjoyed the cereal before their cooked food arrived. I had also mentioend that I had forgotten an item of clothing that I was planning on wearing, very kindly the owner mentioned that she had just popped one of what I needed into a charity shop bag, went and dug it our and it fit great - very much appreciated! We would return as we felt it was a good option for us and good value for money.

Just checked out of this beautiful guesthouse and I'm sad to be leaving. We've had a great 3 night break in a clean and friendly guesthouse with great hosts. Karen thank you for your hospitality. The room had everything we needed and was very comfortable and the breakfast was spot on and set us on our way each morning. Thank you once again and see you again soon

Lovely BnB, hosts are so friendly and helpful. We arrived early and they let us put our bags in and grab the room key so we could go and spend the day by the lake. Rooms lovely, best nights sleep in forever really comfy beds. Location was ok 15 minute walk into bowness, be careful as have to walk on the roads due to no path but was fine. We got a taxi back up and was £4. Breakfast was delicious, we was offered more tea,coffee and toast. Good selection of cereals to choose from. Would most definitely stay again thanks for a lovely stay

We had a perfect stay at Brooklands Guest house, Karen is really lovely and very knowledgeable about the area which was great as she would give us ideas of what we could do for the day. Breakfast was very nice and it was lovely to be able to talk to other rooms and Karen and Andy at breakfast time . Rooms very clean and beds extremely comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you 💜

We have just come back from staying at Brooklands for a couple of nights. We had such a lovely stay. Karen was so so lovely as was her husband. Such a lovely room and super comfy bed. Breakfast was great and karen realised I was a vegetarian and added a few extras in my breakfast. Will be back. Thank you so much.

Me and my boyfriend have just returned home from a weekend stay at Brookfield Guest House. As soon as we arrived Karen came out and made us feel extremely welcome. It was self check in due to Covid and 24 hours before we was emailed a code for the key safe. When we arrived to the room it was beautiful. Due to it being my birthday, Karen had left a beautiful bunch of flowers and a bottle of Prosecco. The bed was extremely comfy and the rooms are very spacious! Tea, coffee and biscuits available in room, ordered your breakfast the day before and that did not disappoint!!!! The walk into Windermere is around 10/15 minutes, it can be quite dangerous at night due to there being no path... but we got a taxi home that cost £3.60. This did not effect our stay one bit! Thank you for such a wonderful stay, you made my birthday very special for me :)

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Brooklands. The building is located in the Ferry View area of Bowness which is about a 15-20 minute walk beside the lake to the town centre. There is one local restaurant/bar, the Boathouse, which is on the marina and very nice . Other bars and restaurants can be found on the way to the town centre. The room was very comfortable with a nice en-suite. Car parking is available on site. Karen is very nice and helpful. Due to the current restrictions, breakfast (either continental or full English) is ordered the night before with adequate social distancing in the dining room. Overall a very pleasant stay.
