“Don't delay, book your stay!!”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

My wife and I spent a lovely weekend in Bowness. We stayed at The Sandown and cannot fault it. The house is s very close to all the Bowness amenities and the local pubs and restaurants are right there.
Georgeene and Mark are ever on hand to point you in the direction of the local attractions. Mark's knowledge of local walks and their diffuculties is a great asset.
The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfasts are superb. I've become a Cumberland Sausage addict!!!
Looking forward to our next stay here.

Room Tip: Room 4 has the most space if you have a big bag!!

I decided last minute to make a trip up to the Lake District and booked through Late Rooms. Within a few hours of booking, I received a personal message from Georgeene. It was a lovely and personal way to start my stay there. The rooms were clean and the breakfasts were freshly prepared. The hosts were warm and friendly and offered some amazing advice on what to do and see in the area. It was especially helpful to have Mark offer advice on good walks accessible for one without a car. I left feeling I'd gained some friends. I very much recommend a stay here.

Me and my partner had never stayed in a guest house before and I had always been a bit unsure. However after staying in the Sandown Guest House in Windermere I will certainly be staying in them more often. What a beautiful house with stunning rooms. All excellently equipt! Breakfast in the morning was delicious! We had a fantastic experience at this guest house and will definately be staying there again!

Just got back from Sandown after staying for 2 nights we had alovely time The staff couldnt have been more helpful and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. The location was perfect 5 mins walk into town, and all other locations near by. We visited Beatrix Potter house at Hill Top, Hawkshead, Rydal for a good long walk and Grsmere and that was all in one day. There is so much to do you could never gat bored!!! Will definately be going again and thanks again to the staff.

Room Tip: All the rooms were good

We are sorry that you did not feel that we were value for money obviously as you booked through a booking agent they do add on their own fees which is out of our control. To respond to your comments on the cleanliness and our breakfast; perhaps readers may wish to see how many of our other reviewers make special mention to our high level of cleanliness; something we pride ourselves on, and also the quality of our breakfast. The temperature in Windermere on 10th Aug was 25oC as it this was probably one of the hottest weekends of the year and our guests tend to prefer comfortable rather than tropical, hence our central heating is set to 20oC. It is disappointing when any problems or issues are not brought to our attention, especially when something can easily be done to solve the problem. Regards Georgeene.

We did arrive much earlier then were expected, but our room was ready, very clean and good size. The location of the Sandown is excellent - everything is within the walking distance, just a few minutes to the Bowneless, where you will find a lot of bars, restaurants and cafe for your evening meal. As well because of the location, it is an excellent hotel if you are exploring Lakes without a car. Freshly made nice breakfast. Special mention about hotel's owners- Georgeene made us feel very welcome from the first minute we met and Mark in the morning did show his genuine interest helping us to choose places we wanted to explore. We were really touched by this wounderful couple. Thanks a lot, guys- it did feel like we were visiting our good friends! :)

Sandown was every bit as good as we remember it from past stays there. It is a while since we have had a chance to return to the Lake District, but ownership of this delightful bed and breakfast guest house has stayed in the same family and it is great to see that past high standards have been maintained with the younger generation. We were made to feel very welcome by Georgeene and Mark and they were keen to help out with any local information we needed about the Lakes and Side in Turkey....but that's another story!! We would recommend Sandown to all who appreciate great hospitality, comfort and a friendly welcome...all within a few minutes walk of Bowness Marina. Thanks for a lovely weekend! Graeme & Eilish, Manchester.
