“Very happy with the choice”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

I expent two nights with my family in Fir Trees Guest House and I am very happy with the warm welcoming and the high standar of the rooms and service. It is in a lovely location and very close to town. Our room was massive, the house very beautiful and well maintained. Breakfast very nice and good choice. Thank you very much!! We will come back.

This is a perfect place to stay mid-way between Windermere and Bowness. It is full of character, that includes our wonderful hosts Bob and Bea. Nothing was too much trouble even when we asked to put our Champagne in their fridge! and they weren't daunted by the fact we were on a girly weekend, and may giggle alot!!(we did)
We were in room 4, which had plenty of room for us to lounge around in and chat. Breakfast was exceptional both days, and we left knowing that we would definetely wish to come back here again.

We were extremely disappointed in our experience with this B&B. After making our booking and having it confirmed we were informed just prior to our proposed visit that there was no booking. After forwarding the email confirming the booking from Bea, we were informed that we would be unable to stay as it was the weekend and we were only staying 1 night, even though we had booked 2 rooms. Overall, I have to say, I would not recommend this establishment. On the whole, we have been delighted with the hospitality and friendliness of the English people we have stayed with. This place was the exception!

Two nights in room 9, a family room with shower. Very warm welcome, warm rooms too. Spotlessly clean room and ensuite shower room. Lovely cooked breakfasts cooked to order precisely. Ideally situated mid-way between Windermere town centre and Bowness.
Our hosts were very friendly and on our return from climbing Helm Crag in deteriating weather in the late afternoon we were greeted and offered dying facilities for our wet overclothes. A pleasure to rest in the warmth of our room before venturing out for our evening meal. We'll definately be back.

As other reviewers have observed, spotlessly clean rooms, warm and comfortable. Wonderfully friendly owners and staff, who made a big fuss of us and our children - whose foibles (including wanting ketchup on toast for breakfast - which was a new one on us, too!) were coped with beautifully.

We had Room 4 - a family room, with good-sized real beds (not rollaways or sofabeds) for all four of us, including a good-sized double and two singles AND a small sofa - but it didn't feel cramped at all.

Would have liked a bit more power from the shower, but I really can't think of a single thing to criticise apart from that! A genuine, warm welcome, a comfy bed and a breakfast to set you up for the day - what more could you want? Thank you for a great stay, folks.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of September and while the weather was awful the B&B certainly was not. We were made feel very welcome from the word go. The breakfast was very good and I would highly recommend at stay at here.
