“Burn How Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Excellent room. Excellent service.
Having stayed at numerous hotels in the Lakes over the years, we have to say the food was without doubt the best ever. Each course of the evening dinner was wonderful - congratulations to the chef. Will be visiting again and would recommend the Burn How to any traveller.

We have just arrived home after celebrating our Wedding Anniversary at the Burn How, what a lovely hotel! It felt like stepping back in time, the staff were so kind and polite, the food was excellent, and nothing was to much trouble.

had a wonderful time at this hotel. Could.nt fault anything. The shalet was lovely decorated, spacious, and very clean. We have stayed in Bowness a few times in the past and this was definately the best we have stayed. The food was excellent, and the staff very friendly. Location excellent. What more can I say, 100% would go back again.

I stayed here for 1 night with my girl pal as a christmas treat!!
Its hard to find hotels in Bowness that do 1 night stays at weekend but thanks to Booking.com we found this gem.
Couldnt fault anything, we had a Garden Chalet which was very large 1 double and 1 single bed and a lovely clean bright bathroom.
Reception was warm and welcoming with pleasant staff hepful staff.
After a lovely evening in Bowness and a good night sleep we headed into the hotel for breakfast - great selection of fruit and cereals. Excellent selection of hot choices. Good attentive service.
All in all i would recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks for making our night away great.

We (2 adults and a 2 year old) stayed for 2 nights and had an enjoyable stay. We found the staff and service welcoming and efficient without being pushy. We thought the hotel did live up to the description on its website and to the comments from other trip advisor reviewers. As vegetarians we were pleased by the vegetarian section on the menu (with several options) rather than the usual single (V) or "special diets catered for on request" we usually see elsewhere. For myself I was also pleased that they had not followed the current fashion for dumping goats cheese on every veggie option which we encountered several times elsewhere in the lake district. We enjoyed the food but the breakfasts deserve a special mention with a great range of fresh fruit plus all the usual options. Perhaps the best test of a hotel is what happens when something goes wrong. Our hot water supply failed and I reported it at what looked like a bad time when the main dinner service was under way. However, a member of staff immediately left to deal with the problem and we were told it was working again before we had even finished our first course. We would be very happy to stay at this hotel again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
This unique Lake District hotel only two minutes stroll from Lake Windermere and the village of Bowness, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. The Burn How's unique layout is refreshingly different to most hotels; all of the bedrooms are located outside of the main building within the private grounds making the stay peaceful and relaxing for the discerning guest. You can take picturesque walks from the hotel, or cruise on Lake Windermere, and if you take the Post Knott walk and you find the hotels bench, bring back the inscription and you will have a drink on us. For the shopping magnets find a special Lakeland gift in the village only two minutes walk away. On your return from a full day, relax and meet friends or family in the congenial atmosphere of the lounge and bar, or on pleasant summers evening sit out on the patio and take in the beautiful surroundings. Relax in the comfort of your room choosing from modern chalet style to four poster or traditional bedrooms. Most have private sun terraces. All have ensuite bathrooms, colour televisions, telephones and hot beverages. Rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the rose garden and patio, with some having disabled facilities. There is ample free parking available. Experience English and French Cuisine made only from the freshest produce and served in the style in which Burn How Garden House Hotel is famous. Three courses and coffee is around £35.00 Per person. At the end of the day relax with family and friends in the congenial atmosphere of the lounge and bar or on a pleasant summers evening take in the beautiful surroundings of the patio and gardens. Shoppers and browsers will delight in the speciality stores and attractions in nearby Windermere and Bowness. Whilst a drive over the Hard Knott pass is for the courageous with its 1 in 3 and 2.5 Gradients - but the views are spectacular. ... more   less
