Sandown Guest House
Reviewed 11 January 2013

We stayed here just for one night on 8th Jan, room was beautiful, modern and clean. We were greeted by Georgeene who was lovely and spent time recommending the best places to eat that evening and how to find them. Cooked breakfast in the morning was excellent! Would definitely stay here again, Lisa and George.

When we arrived we were greeted by Georgeene who was very welcoming and showed us to our room. She explained where to go in Bowness and especially about where to eat, which helped us alot as we had not been to the area before. The breakfast was served at a good time not too early and not too late and it definately set us up for the day as we had planned to go walking. Mark gave us some great information about the boat trips to either Lakeside or Ambleside which was a great day out, and we felt when we got back that we could just relax especially as we came back to a clean room that had been cleaned whilst we had been out. When were leaving Mark came to say bye which felt as though it had that final personal touch. We loved our first time to the Lakes which was made even better by Georgeene and Mark, we will be back! Amy and Dan.

The single bedroom I used was well-appointed and welcoming. So were the hosts - definitely out to oblige. Sandown is well situated for Windermere's restaurants, its rail station and Bowness, the larger community down the hill, with a convenience store open till late. All are about five minutes'walk. Sandown's breakfast was just right.

We couldn't resist going back to The Sandown.

Just before Christmas and shopping to do ..what could be better than a trip to the Lakes?
Phoned and booked and were greeted warmly bt Georgeene who remembered us.
Stayed for a couple of nights and felt almost at home. Same clean room, lovely breakfast and those wonderful Cumberland Sausages.

We went to Hawkshead Christmas Market on Georgeene's recommendation. It was wonderful.

We will be back in the Spring as well....can't wait.

Nice clean room, great breakfast, good tips from the hosts, good parking facilities and a 5 minute walk to the Lake, what more could you need!

Bowness is great, plenty of restaurants to choose from!

The owners were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and they were incredibly helpful. Breakfast was top-notch with all ingredients locally sourced, although it's only available 9-9.30. Brilliantly located close to the town centre.

Many thanks taking the time to post your review. It was great to talk with you at breakfast and chat about all the lovely produce that we have available in the UK. I hope your volunteering week went well we certainly think cooking breakfast & dinner for all those cadets is brave so I am glad you were able to have a relaxing start to your very busy week!!!
