“Lovely Guest House”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

Very friendly, welcoming proprietors. Small cosy room that was clean and tidy. Quality full English breakfast. Good location. Plenty of DVD's for some chill time. A nice little free box of Milk Tray chocolates to munch on. No complaints. Highly recommend it.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

Great place to stay in Windermere. Location is close to the town and there is plenty of parking along the road. The owners were very friendly and had lots of helpful information and tips in what to do in the area. Our room was lovely, nicely decorated, extremely clean and had everything you would want. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice. I would definitely recommend Montfort Cottage.

I love traveling up to the lakes to take pictures and always stop at Montfort Cottage for a night or two during the week. From the moment you arrive you're greeted to a warm welcome, and a cosy and homely abode to make your stay a relaxing and peaceful one. The breakfast is superb and will keep you going while you explore and take in the majestic views the lakes have to offer, which are just a stones throw away. I can't compliment the hosts enough for providing a home away from home, they're almost like family to me now!

Recently stayed here with my partner as a two night break and will certainly return again!
On arrival we were greeted by Sue who was really friendly and showed us to our room which was really impressive, and had everything we needed. Everything was clean and the room was cleaned and towels changed etc.
A choice of breakfast was a really nice change as I was able to vary what I wanted and the food was exceptional all locally sourced ingredients.
Paul was very friendly and welcoming and gave us all the information we needed about walks in the area etc.
Definatley recommend to stay here, wana really enjoyable stay!

Stayed here as a last minute booking for a surprise get-away for hubby and I. Trouble-free booking directly through the hotel website. From the outset, Sue made us welcome and showed us to our room. We stayed in the Windermere which has a HUGE super king bed. The room was lovely and well decorated. Not a complaint but you had to be careful of the sloping ceilings and the ensuite shower room was a tight squeeze as it was a little on the small side. Fresh clean and fluffy towels and supplied with lovely shower gel, hand wash etc. Free Wifi accessible throughout the building with a strong signal. Breakfast is individually ordered at the beginning of your stay and perfectly cooked by Paul who welcomes you to breakfast with a handshake and a smile. Paul and Sue also make time to chat with you and really make you feel at home. We would certainly stay here again - very homely.

Thanks for a lovely review Julie. Sorry about the low beams in our Windermere room but unfortunately that's what you get with loft rooms. Glad that our superking bed was comfortable for you though. All the best Paul & Sue.

Third time staying in Bowness, having visited on several day trips. Stayed at the ever so pleasant Montfort Cottage. Stayed in the Thirlmere, very well presented double en suite room. With wifi, wall mounted tv, ipod dock etc. Respectively priced for what you benefit from, the comfy bed and choice of cooked breakfast. We will be returning sometime later in the year..well done excellent sleep and well catered for.

As you can tell from the title of my review, I am extremely impressed by Montfort Cottage and I definitely plan to go back there. Here are just a few brilliant things:
- A wonderful, friendly, helpful couple that went above and beyond to make our stay as good as it could be.
- The cleanliness of the whole place was superb.
- All the rooms were modern, beautifully decorated, and comfy.
- The breakfasts we had were absolutely delicious and I wish I could cook scrambled eggs like that!
- It was only £60 a night?! They deserve 10 times this amount but I'm glad they don't charge it because it means we get an absolutely bargain for top class accommodation.

I highly recommend Montfort Cottage, we had such a lovely weekend in Windermere and Bowness The town and accommodation were brilliant and I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We stayed in 'Grasmere' which was beautiful and comfortable but I'm sure all the other r...
