Great place to stay! Large room and very comfortable bed. Yummy breakfast and wonderful hosts. Walking distance of both Windermere and Bowness. Lots to do and places to eat in both towns. Recommended as a great place to stay in the lakes!!!!

We have stayed at the Rosemount on several occassions now over the past 4-5 years, normally for our wedding anniversary, this was no exception and have never been dissapointed. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated. We stayed in Room 4 complete with a fantastic four poster bed. We have stayed in other rooms before now, all finished to the same high standards. The hosts, Andrew and Louise are a lovely couple, nothing is too much trouble and we have always been made to feel welcome. The breakfasts are fantastic, freshly cooked to order from locally sourced produce, just what you need to set yourself up for the days activities. The Hotel is situated within easy walking distance (10mins) of Bowness town centre but set just far enough out so as not to be disturbed by those availing themselves of the local pubs and resturants. We have recommended The Rosemount to most of our friends and will definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 4, although their most expensive and it's situated at the front of the house but definately...

Me and my partner booked this hotel for our first evening in the Lake District - as we were staying with friends over the rest of the weekend we only had one evening at Rosemount , we regretted not booking for the whole weekend!

We were greeted with a warm welcome on arrival and then swiftly escorted to a beautiful room. The bed was very comfortable with high quality bedding - could not fault it. The room was clean and well presented , as was the bathroom - we loved the rainfall shower, a very nice touch.

We slept very well as we did not hear a peep all evening.

The breakfast was probably one of the best we have ever had in a guesthouse - clearly locally sourced produce. We opted for a full english and weren't disappointed. There was plenty of tea and coffee and we loved the fresh Orange and Apple juice.

All in all although we only stayed for one evening Rosemount created a lasting impression and we cannot wait to return and have already recommended to family and friends.

With thanks to the hosts for an impressive service at a great price in the perfect location for Bowness.

Tanya and James

We normally take self catering breaks in the Lake District but opted for a B&B stay for a long weekend and what a great choice the Rosemount was. Comfortable, friendly, lovely decor and ideally placed between Windermere and Bowness so we walked. Beautiful ensuite to Room 6 and good breakfasts. If I have one thing I would change I would ask for bigger bath towels - they were lovely and fuffy but we're not all skinny ! I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

From the first greeting and throughout the stay the experience was fantastic. Andrew and Louise are excellent hosts, the decor is lovely and the breakfast is spot on.Location is great being a short walk from Bowness and Windermere. Probably the best Guest House I have stayed in as it ticks all the boxes.

I've just spent 4 nights at Rosemount and considering I got one night free by taking the winter special offer of 1 night free, I am quiet happy with my experience there.
My only concerns were towards the size, heating & external noise in Superior Room 3 (having seen the size of room 5, which is massive in comparison).
Room 3 is small, the small double bed is meant for single people who prefer a wider bed than the standard single, hence Superior Room, but that is it as the room is no more than 5ft wide! The bathroom is compact and finished in a modern style, however the sink is low and was smaller than normal.
There are 2 radiators in the room, one for the bathroom, a bar type above the toilet. The other is a tall narrow panel radiator at the foot of the bed. The problem here is that as the radiator is tall and narrow, it does not heat the room effectively - leaving the head of the bed cool & in the draught from the bedroom window. The noise from the road was disappointing, I found that the traffic was waking me between 5.30 & 6am each morning. A good selection of complimentary drinks were available on a tray, including 4 different teas, hot chocolate & 2 types of coffee, not to mention the mint chocolate.The TV had a DVD in it and a selection of DVD's were available form the breakfast room. Daily room service was provided.
Breakfast was hearty, cereals; yoghurt; fruit juice, toast and a fresh cooked full English. You could take breakfast any time between 8.30 & 9.30am and had a key so you were free to come and go as you pleased.
Andrew & Louise were great hosts and knowledgeable of the area, they don't take a deposit before you travel, which is fab,

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at the front of the house if you like your sleep!

We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback which we value.

With regards to the draught and traffic noise, we found that the top sash of your window (at the top, behind the blind) had been ajar. All the radiators are all sufficiently spec’d for the room sizes and the windows were draft-proofed a couple of years ago. We will always pop the heating on more if requested!

Our house is a genuine Victorian property and all the rooms vary a lot in terms of size and shape. We have deliberately kept 3 specific single rooms, which are priced accordingly, rather than charging over the odds with single occupancy supplements.

We have taken the comments regarding the sink on board (you’re right!) so we’ll be changing it over the winter.

Best wishes, we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Andrew & Louise
