“Nothing to complain about”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

Its a nice house, the room was clean and tidy and a very good newly fitted out bathroom. We only ever spoke to the owners over the phone and through the intercom which felt a bit impersonal but not really a complaint as they sounded friendly enough. There was a problem with the payment through booking.com and also with their card machine (it wasn't a lack of funds on my behalf!). Anyway we had to take cash which I didn't mind but I'm used to paying once I check out, not before I've even stayed or seen the room; I can only assume that they have suffered with 'runners' in the past! The breakfast was average (I didn't think much of the sausages) but the staff were very friendly and very helpful offering extra tea, coffee, toast etc which is nice because its surprising how many places don't! Good value for what we paid, didn't exceed any expectations but in a good location and the free parking space is also a plus.

Positives:
Eastbourne is walking distance from the Pier and close to all the good restaurants. They provide dedicated parking space for each room. The check-in and check out process is quite hassle-free (as pointed out in other reviews, we never happen to meet the owner!) - money gets deducted from the card you provide during booking and you hand over the keys and parking permit to the ladys managing the property.

Negatives:
The B&B staff do not understand English and not at all welcoming! We wanted to enquire about vegetarian brkfast options and they lady just walked off assumed what we wanted and got us something. They don't talk to you properly. Everday walking down to the breakfast table was a challenge!! The food though was quite decent.

Room Tip: Go for the Super King room (number 3)

Not really impressed, room was clean but l dropped something on the floor my husband lifted the bed it certainly has not been cleaned for months someone's straightners still under bed. Was kept awake most of the night by something on roof rattling all night in the wind (2 nights)On arrival no one to greet you just an intercom owner was in car answering it, and hung up while my husband was still talking to him. We never saw the owner at all, just the staff who at one point when we returned to our room at 11.15 told us house keeping was cleaning 10 to 12 saying l don't know I don't know she wanted us to come back at 12. We went up to the room anyway. Room 6 wasn't a good room was more disappointed because it was my birthday on the Saturday. Breakfast ok nothing special asked for mushrooms and received a stern NO. Cannot fault the location, we love the lakes always come in March but will not be returning to this B & B.

We arrived on a Friday early evening but stood outside ringing the bell and the phone for some time but no one answered, after a wait we were eventually shown to our room. The introduction was very rushed and abrupt and not made to feel very welcomed. The breakfast was very average, no milk left out for cereals and again when greeted to,take our order we found it was very abrupt again. The quality of the food also seemed low budget and was lacking taste. The wifi did not work due to poor signal and the tv kept losing signal in the room also. On the plus side the room was lovely and clean plus the bathroom had an amazing power shower! Which was nice after a long cold day out hiking.

However we will definitely not be visiting again

Eastbourne Guest House, firstly it is in a brilliant location 2 minutes walk to the center of bowness, and 5 mins from the lake. Just up the road is a stunning view point of the lake.

On arrival we were up-graded to the king-size room free of charge, this room was lovely, clean and at the side of the property so was like our own apartment! It had a great shower, tv (dvd), tea making facilities, iron and ironing board and hair dryer!

The breakfast was tasty, with a great vegetarian option. Marianna was helpful and smiley, and the other waitress was friendly also.

We love the Lakes and Bowness, this was a great stay, would definately recommend for others.

Well appointed, clean and very pleasant stay. Will easily recommend this place.

The breakfast was great as well.

Someone complained that there was no-one at reception and they were just told to go to their room. Well what is wrong with that? We found everything waiting for us in our room and settled in immediately.

Really have no complaints.

Stayed Thursday to Saturday (arrived home yesterday). Martin, the owner, was fantastic, upgraded our room for no extra charge! On arrival we were taken to our room which was on the side of the guest house - it was like having our own little apartment. Really peaceful, spotlessly clean and really warm! Shower was amazing, breakfast was lovely with cereals and juice and then a range of different breakfasts. We had full english on both days - no complaints! My only tip would be to get there early for parking, think there was 7 spaces. We left our car parked up and walked so as not to lose our space.
Definately stay again.

Room Tip: Go for the king size room!
