Positive Reviews

Friendly and intimate guest house.

There are only four rooms at Number 80 Bed Then Breakfast which means that the service guests receive from the owners is excellent. As for the owners, guests have nothing but good words to say about them, with their friendliness and helpfulness in particular being highlighted.

Brilliant location.

Number 80 Bed Then Breakfast is in a great location for getting into Bowness-On-Windermere. The town centre is only a few minutes away on foot, meaning easy access to the quaint shops, cafes and pubs, and is only a few minutes away from Lake Windermere itself too.

Really tasty breakfast.

If the reviews are anything to go by, breakfast at Number 80 Bed Then Breakfast is a real treat. The cooked breakfast goes down really well with guests, including as it does locally-made Cumberland sausages. A vegetarian option is also available, as is a continental breakfast selection, ensuring that guests have plenty of choice.

Negative Reviews

Parking situation not ideal.

Number 80 Bed Then Breakfast does not provide car parking for guests, and while this is not a massive problem in itself, it does means guests have to find their own parking nearby, which can be tricky as it is very difficult to find parking at the best of times around Lake Windermere.

Rooms can get hot.

Number 80 Bed Then Breakfast is centrally-heated, which is great, but it can mean that rooms get overly hot judging by the experience of some guests who find that the windows cannot be opened enough to let fresh air in.

Twisty staircase.

Being set in an old terraced house, Number 80 Bed Then Breakfast does not have a lift. This has been a problem for some older guests who have struggled to navigate the old, twisty staircase to get upstairs.
