“Surely a place we recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

We spent the weekend at Invergarry Guesthouse and are very happy with our stay. A great feeling to be in a house which is over a hundred years old. And it is indeed very well maintained. The hosts are excellent and they went out of their way to make sure that all our needs were taken care of. The location is also very convenient being in between Windermere city centre and Bowness on Windermere. Surely a place we recommend.

This was the last stop on our Scottish/Lake District holiday.

The Invergarry Guest House is located between Windermere and Bowness, just off the main road.

We had the pleasure of staying in the 'Garden Room' which was just lovely having a big bedroom that was furnished to a very high standard, clean and well maintained bathroom and front sitting room with table, chairs and ample room for our Greyhound.

The owners Steve and Victoria were lovely, being very helpful and leaving us to enjoy our experience. Although we enjoyed having breakfast with our fellow guests at other locations, it was nice to be able to sit with our Greyhound and enjoy breakfast together. We had the full 'Cumbrian Cooked Breakfast' that was simply delicious with home made jam and marmalade. Steve and Victoria also left us a piece of home made ginger cake when we first arrived which was a lovely touch.

We had a very enjoyable meal at the Royal Oak in Bowness which is dog friendly and is about half a mile away.

I'm sure this won't be our last visit.

After reading the many good reviews on trip advisor, we decided to book invergarry guest house, we were not disappointed with our choice. Steve and Vicky were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome from the first day, the breakfasts were top notch and the home made cake left in the room every day was a lovely touch. Steve and Vicky were also very helpful in giving good advise on places to visit, and good walks, would recommend and would stay again on revisiting the lakes area. Gary and Alison.

Such a lovely review. Thank you Lesley & Kevin, we really enjoyed having you to stay over the last few days. Even though the weather was not great you really made the most of your trip and saw so much of the Lakes. We would love to see you both again and hopefully next time the weather will be kinder. Say hello to Hertfordshire for us, see you soon. Best wishes Steve & Vicky

We arrived at Windermere knocked on the door. Steve opened the door with a big smile on his face....welcome. After the introductions he said he had a surprise for us we had been upgraded to the garden suite. Well it was a beautiful. It had a small conservatory attached to the room. Shower was hot . This is a must for any one to stay at. Make this your 1st stop.Victoria and Steve are so friendly and make you feel like one of the family. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Book the garden suite

Thank you for such a lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our Garden Room. We were touched by the gift you left us; it really made us smile and was so thoughtful of you. We look forward to exchanging recipes (especially the green tomato jam) and the next time you are over we very much hope to see you again. Until then, enjoy the rest of this trip and take care.

On arrival, we had a very warm welcome from the hosts. The double room was nicely decorated, clean. It was nice to have home made cake along with kettle, cups, wine glasses and corkscrew. The home cooked breakfast was plentiful, there were other choices on offer. The hosts very attentive with lots of advice for places to see in the area.

Thanks for your friendly service and especially for welcoming us after the specified check-in times. Location is ideal for a stroll either up to Windermere or down to Bowness and the lake. Room 1 (classic double) was very clean, nicely decorated and and with a decent size en-suite. Homemade cake and large coffee mugs were a pleasant surprise! Good choice of meals for breakfast, including a delicious full English. Steve recommended a few restaurants and made us feel really welcome even though we only stayed one night. Overall, a lovely stay for a good price. Will recommend to friends and family and visit again.

Room Tip: Room 1 was a good size, bright and airy, nicely decorated and slightly cheaper than some of the '...

Such a lovely review, thank you. We very much enjoyed having you to stay and we are pleased you liked our classic double room.
We try and keep on top of decorating and each room has a make over every year so that it is fresh. I have tried a new cake this week, a Maderia cake so if you are in the area again pop in and try it.
Best wishes
