Positive Reviews

Clean and comfortable suites

Guests have consistently described the suites here as clean and comfortable, also generally finding the accommodation reasonably sized. The suites are decorated and furnished to a high standard and are said to be well maintained.

Excellent location

The location of these Lake District suites has proved popular with previous guests, many of whom note that the accommodation is within an easy walk of Lake Windermere. Bowness centre is also nearby where there are several bars and dining spots.

Good standard of service

Although guests have occasionally mentioned that they had a run-in with the owners and hosts here, overall, the standard of service appears to be excellent. Most guests have found the service friendly and welcoming.

Negative Reviews

No automatic towel replacement

A minor point perhaps, but several guests have noted that the towels in their rooms were not automatically changed. Indeed, it appears that the staff will even pick up wet towels left on the floor and hang them back up.

Lack of cooked breakfast

Although guests have enjoyed the continental breakfast served to the room, some have mentioned that they would have liked to wake up to a full English. Clearly, there's a good choice of cafes and restaurants where you can get a cooked meal but you won't be able to enjoy this in your room.

Some noise concerns

It's unlikely that you'll encounter any significant unwanted noise here but guests who were allocated a suite at the front of the property do mention that they were able to hear some traffic as well as the entrance bell. Plumbing noises from the water storage heaters can also be a slight problem.
