“Lovely, friendly guest house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

We stayed here over the Valentines weekend and it is a lovely little find!
Really friendly owners and cosy, well decorated rooms.
The breakfast was amazing and very tasty, especially the perfectly done poached eggs.
Lots of choices such as fruit and cereal as well.
I never really bother writing reviews but wanted to express how welcomed we felt and pleasantly enjoyed our stay here.
Would definitely recommend and stay again. Great value for money! x

We stayed here for a long weekend and after reading reviews here thought it sounded too good to be true, but found all to true. Phil & Rick are fantastic hosts, rooms are small but clean and comfy with modern shower room. Breakfast where lovely (even got an extra sausage for our dog!). Location was just right for town and local amenities. Can't recommend enough.

Phil was so helpful, lovely warm greeting, room was spotless, cosy with plenty of clean towels and had fridge in which is great for walkers maybe wanting to make packed lunch. Even got given bottle of fizz as we got married a week ago. Phil booked us a table at the Lamplighter in town which is a 2 min walk away. The lake and Boweness is a pleasant 20 mins walk all downhill from hotel, £5 back up in a taxi. Great fresh cooked breakfast.

Spent two nights at this excellent guest house. Will certainly return next year as further walking weekends are planned. Owners very friendly and the facilities are excellent. Will be recommending to friends and family.

Really lovely B&B very comfortable room and fantastic breakfast. Phil and Rik were so helpful and booked us up for a great resturant (Lamplighter) when we arrived late. Would recommend a stay here. The fridge was great too and helped store supplies needed for our hike. It was very central within walking distance to Windermere.

Very clean and tidy room. We had no problem with parking on the street outside. We weren't expecting our own fridge, which was brilliant for putting our wine in! We even had wine glasses supplied in the room.... much nicer than having to drink out of the tooth mugs! We liked having enough hooks around the room for hanging wet coats separately to dressing gowns and other things. We also liked the TV not overpowering the room. The bed was very big and comfortable and there were ample plugs for charging the computer and the phones. Our hosts Phil and Rick were very obliging and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were excellent and the guest house is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. We are already looking forward to our next stay there!

Room Tip: There is a ground floor room if required.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

My Wife and I were up in Windermere for a few days and having read on Trip Advisor, about the review standards at the Ellerdene Guest house thought we would give it a try. Apparently the owners have only recently taken over, so was it going to be as good as the reviews seemed to indicate?
Well not having stayed at the Ellerdene previously I have no idea how it was before and can only speak for now bearing in mind that it is a Guest house and not a 5* hotel. It is comfortable, well appointed, spotlessly clean. Phil and Rik, the owners, could not be more pleasant and helpful and nothing is too much trouble and the full breakfast is spot on. The Guest house is two minutes from Windermere village and about a 10 minute walk into Bowness and the Lake. Also being in Windermere it is a brilliant starting point for the Lake District's many other places of interest and beauty. Would we recommend the Ellerdene? The answer is a resounding yes. Try it next time your in the Lakes.

Room Tip: All of them!
