Eastbourne Guest House
Reviewed 8 April 2013

On every 14th of Feb my wife and i always try some were romantic as on the 14th is my birthday,our wedding anniversary and Valentin's day this time we chose lake district uk we stayed at Eastbourne b&B in Bowness on Windermere lovely room with a view the bed and pillows were very comfortable very clean sheets and towels small bathroom but very cosy breakfast could be better even the service could be better but on the whole we loved it its in a very good location as its not far from restaurants bars shops and the lake. Bowness Is a very nice little town but its a must to hire a car because you need one to get around we went to very nice towns like we went up to York Penrith Kendal Ambleside thanks to our little Toyota. The walks by lake very romantic. We had fish and chips at a very good and very clean English fish and chip shop called shell shop in Ambleside very nice mate keep it up and for a very traditional steak and kidney pie we went to st martins tea room in bowness very tasty and fresh well in one word thank you lake district we enjoyed it in any way PAUL & CLAIRE FROM MALTA

Stayed Easter wkend in room 6. Comfortable bed, nice towels & clean room. Electric shower was poor. Breakfast was nice, but cooked part always seemed rushed, arriving just before or as you finished cereal. Good location, just 2 mins walk into Bowness, 20mins to Windermere.

On arrival spoke to someone via intercom. We were shown to the annex room by the cleaner who spoke little English. Room was fair, but breakfast was disappointing. Asked what we would like, but told the waitress we had not been given a menu. Two menus were literally thrown on the table. The breakfast itself was below par; neither my wife or I ate the sausages because they were raw! Plates were collected and we were not asked if everything was O.K. even though we had both left a lot of uneaten food. Would not recommend.

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
