Dene House was an excellent guest house to stay in. The room was spacious, very clean, with a comfortable bed, mini fridge and ironing board. The guest house is in peaceful surroundings, with table and chairs outside and parking, and it took 5 minutes walk to the centre of town. The staff were all lovely, and breakfast options were given the night before. We would definitely stay again.

Read up on several places before visiting, as we generally are not fans of a guest house. So pleased we made an exception this time. Location is excellent with free parking. The room (3) was very spacious, en suite, one of the most comfortable beds you could get, and a mini fridge that came in very useful! The room and hotel in general were very, very clean (which pleased my wife) and the breakfast was outstanding (which pleased me!) The owners were lovely and very welcoming. Will definitely return in the future

Excellent service and the welcoming was out of this world, such a beautiful traditional English guesthouse, very classy. Although Windermere is such a unique place the stay made it. I would 100% recommend this boutique hotel

Stayed at dene house for a weekend in March. We were in room 5 on the top floor. Room had iron, ironing board, tea/coffee facilities, tv, en-suite shower, wardrobe and plenty of draw space. Bonus was a hairdryer in the draw. Bed comfy, room temperature was good, enough space for 2 people Breakfast was a buffet choice of cereal, fruit and juices plus a full breakfast which was cooked to your liking, which was brought to your table. Added bonus was the parking. 2 minutes Walking distance to the nearest pubs and restaurants 10 mins walk to marina for any boat trips.

Ideally located very close to the village centre, with a desperately needed car park. Parking in Bowness can be a nightmare. Hai and Lan are the perfect hosts, extremely polite, warm and very welcoming. The breakfasts plentiful and very tasty. The hotel/guest house, is spotlessly clean. Would definitely return, and can recommend highly for others.

Accommodation met all expectations and was in a brilliant location! We booked the superior room with the larger bed, room number 2. The hosts were brilliant, check in time states 1600 but I contacted them and they were happy for us to arrive early which really helped. Thank you for our lovely 1st stay in windermere. Hopefully we shall see you again soon :)
