“Perfect Hotel”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Stayed 4 nights 13 May to 17 May. We arrived at 12.00 midday and our room was ready for us. Before the young lady took us to our room number 9 ,she offered us tea/coffee and biscuits.The room was lovely,spotlessly clean,nicely decorated. towels lovely and soft.Plenty of tea coffee and biscuits.The breakfasts were excellent and filling,plenty of choice,we didn't have anything more to eat until evening.All the staff and the owners were very friendly. We never heard any noise either in the hotel or from the outside. We have walked past the hotel on numerous occasions when we have stayed in the area and always said it looked nice.Now we have stayed there we know it is nice and we will be staying there again soon.

Room Tip: When we booked Trevor offered us a choice of a room with a shower or bath. We prefered the bath whic...

Lovely little guest house, perfect size to be personal but still the freedom to come and go completely as you choose. Great location, slightly closer to Windermere than Bowness but completely walkable to both. Room lovely, cosy but modern with funky bathroom and having big bottles of organic toiletries to use as much as you wish was great. Trevor and Philippa are lovely and friendly and have really thought about the extra little touches such as a DVD 'menu', personal guided tour of the room controls (towel rail, underfloor heating), extra stocks of biscuits/tea bags available whenever you want. It's said that the difference is in the detail and that's totally true about this place. A hotel that adds to the enjoyment of your stay rather than putting a sour note on it is always a winner in my book.

Room Tip: I was in Room 10, huge bed, funky bathroom wall tiles and looked out over a nice wood

We arrived to be welcomed by Trevor with a lovely cup of Tea and Coffee and melt in the mouth Shortbread biscuit. We were shown around the room personally by Trevor and its many features. He also told us where to visit locally in Windermere and Burness. Our room was fresh and clean service was better than most hotels we have stayed in. Breakfast was unique as we were offered different types of cooked breakfast each day, which were delicious. (They fully deserved the Breakfast Award). Enjoyed our stay so much we are planning next years longer stay. A personal thanks to both Trevor and Phillippa who even organised a birthday surprise for me.
Highly recommended see you next year.

We have just returned from a two night stay here, and I'm pleased to report that our high expectations (after reading reviews on here) were completely met.

We stayed in Room 2 which is a comfortable small double room, huge bed, roomy wardrobe and dresser, tv, radio etc. It was immaculately clean, everything looked brand new - with a high spec shower room with underfloor heating, heated towel rails and a spectacularly good power shower. It's stocked with some lovely, locally produced shower gel, shampoo and hand washes which was a nice touch of luxury.

Breakfast (served until 9.30am) was top notch. Excellent selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurts, and very tasty pastries. Full English breakfast looked very good, plenty of additional options to add to it, with all locally sourced produce. Each day there was a special. I had it both mornings. Smoked salmon (excellent!) with scrambled egg the first morning, and eggs benedict the second morning. There were also other options of porridge, beans on toast, eggs any way you fancy etc. I couldn't really think of anything else you could possibly want. Staff were really friendly and made us feel so welcome.

The highlight for me (because I am a geek!) was the spectacular marine fish tank in the breakfast room, and I enjoyed speaking to the owners about this before we left.

Overall an excellent stay, without fault. If we return to the area at any point in the future we will certainly return here.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a weekend in May 2013.

The staff were very friendly from booking - we had an issue with travelling the first time round due to snow and they allowed us to re-use our deposit when the weather was better.

We were greeted with coffee on arrival and shown to our room (room 12) which was exactly as described, with luxuries such as heated flooring in the bathroom and a mini fridge.

The breakfasts were a treat, all the usual stuff with a choice of eggs benedict on the first morning and smoked haddock with poached eggs on the second. The staff made themselves very available for help but did not interfere with our trip.

The location was right in the middle of Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere. Most the restaurants etc were in Bowness and a taxi was only around £3.50 one way.

Would recommend this guest house to anyone.

We stayed in room 14 over the bank holiday weekend. On arrival we were met by the very welcoming and friendly Philippa and Trevor. We were given a quick tour and our bags were carried upstairs for us along with tea and some beautiful shortbread.
The room was just beautiful, very comfortable with stunning views from the balcony. Everything was beautifully presented and super clean.
We had such a lovely and relaxing stay here with some lovely meals out in Bowness. Breakfast at the guest house was very impressive with excellent service.
Thank you Philippa and Trevor for a wonderful stay. We hope to come back soon!

We had to cut our stay to one night, but what a great stay. The view from our room, 12, was simply amazing. We will return because we had such a great stay. This B&B is very well recommended. Thank you for the SA tips as well..........
