“Just what we needed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2012

We were on a trip to Scotland and decided at the last minute to break it up with a night in the Lake District. Luckily, Brian and Mandy had a room free. We had a fantastic stay! They were both very welcoming to tired and hungry travelers, and after Mandy took some time to find us somewhere to eat, Brian even drove us there. The rooms were spotless and the decoration was just to my taste. We even got chocolates! I don't know what type of mattress they had but I rarely find one that comfortable when I stay away from home. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful, and Mandy was very patient and accommodating with my requests for cremated eggs. I'm recommending this to all my friends and I'll definitely be back.

We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of November. Normally do big impersonal hotels, so this break was out of our comfort zone but, thought we would give it a go since it got such good reviews. We are so pleased we tried it. If all B&Bs were like this we would use them all the time. Brian and Mandy could not have been nicer or more helpful. Room and facilities were spotless, breakfast to die for, kept us going all day and where else do you get eggs laid that morning by the owners hens??
Loved it, would happily stay again.

Had a great stay here for three nights. Brian and Mandy are so helpful, even giving us a lift to Crosthwaite to pick up our car. The hotel is immaculate, extremely clean and comfortable, and the veggie breakfast was fab. The mattress on the bed in the Balcony Room deserves a special mention - best night's sleep in a hotel ever.

We'll definitely be back and would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

My wife and i stayed two nights B+B early December.
Balcony House is decorated to a High standard, and our room ( number 1) was very clean and comfortable, with lots of nice touches you would not get in many B+B's
Brian and Mandy are very helpfull and friendly. Brian gave us a lift to our Bootleggers Venue in Kendal, which is above and beyond the call of duty.
Mandy had put out the Christmas decorations which also helped with the experience.
The breakfast was plentifull and tasty.
Balcony House is in an ideal location to visit all of the lake district and beyond.
We would recomend Balcony House to our family, friends and anyone looking for a place to stay in Cumbria.
We really look forward to a return visit.

After staying only 1 night we found it to be warm and friendly. The rooms were of a high standard and the personel touches in the en suite was more than expected. The breakfast was one of the best we have tasted. We are recomending this hotel to all our friends and family and definately would stop here again. Well done to the owners they tick all the boxes .

Stopped at balcony in November, beautiful tastefully decorated throughout. Owners go above call of duty to deliver genuine warmth' hospitality and attention to detail.
Breakfast nicer than had in several top hotels!
Will recommend, without faults.

We have just had 1 night at the balcony with friends and can confirm that the hotel and owners provide fantastic value for money and a very welcomming environment.The room was everything and more than we needed and the breakfast was tasty,well presented and very filling!The Spa facilities at the nearby hotel were very good and very easy to access. Would not hesitate to use in the future.
