My partner and I have just returned after staying 4 nights at Laurel Cottage. What can I say? After reading some of the reviews on here, I thought we'd been somewhere else. It was lovely. Our room was clean and tidy. The breakfasts are great and the welcome is just as we like.
We looked at a few before we booked with vastly differing prices and found this to be great value.
The location is fantastic, just 1 minute walk to the lake. Some people found parking a problem but we pulled up behind the b abd b and left the car for the 4 days. On our last night ( a saturday) there was a bit of noise from the pub next door but not unreasonable.

We would not hesitate to recommend and will return.

Family room was good size and the shower was good although it looked 'rustic'!
Noisy on an evening however due to bar on street below. Dining room very cramped and dark but staff accomodating,
I agree with the not nice greasy smell - it actually put me off having cooked breakfast and I usually love one! So didn't get money's worth there - a bowl of Rice crispies!!
Daughter loved the biscuits and even got extras!
Fab holiday all round though - love the Lakes xx

We were very excited about coming here as we had read good reports on tripadvisor.
Location is great right in the centre of Bowness although we later found out that is is very noisy in the evening.
First problem was the car parking, we had to walk quite a distance to the car park.
We agree with the reviwer who mentioned that the establishment had a "Jaded look".
The place definitely needed sprucing up. The carpets were very thin (almost threadbare) the cupboards look like they had just survived the 19th century (not antique) and were very dusty too.
The bathroom had linoleum flooring and a makeshift showercurtain which did not do the job. We found several spiders that freaked my 10 year old son.
The bedlinen did not smell particularly fresh although the beds were quite comfortable.
The TV kept disconnecting. The dining area was so cramped that one morning we had to sit facing the wall which was not a very pleasant experience. Although the following day they put us in a better place.
As mentioned before it was very hard to sleep at night, pleople were screaming under our window.
The staff did try to help when they could but we found the ambience rather "tired" all together.
Had the cost been lower we might have accepted it for what it was but I would not consider this value for money.

As we arrived early there was no problem with parking as they allowed us to park on the premises untill the room was ready. The staff were lovely and helpful and the room was also to a high standard. Great location, would definitely return. Breakfast A11111111111
