Positive Reviews

Welcoming, accommodating hosts.

Reviews show that the hosts at Laurel Cottage Guesthouse have been very much appreciated for excellent overall service, and guests found them to be very welcoming and accommodating throughout their stay.

Hearty breakfasts to set you up.

The delicious cooked breakfasts, which even included gluten-free bread for one guest, were found to be enough to carry guests through the day, while it even seems breakfast in bed is possible for some rooms.

Minutes from lake, Bowness village.

Guests loved the location of Laurel Cottage Guesthouse, which is within a few minutes of both Lake Windermere, and the centre of the pretty village of Bowness, with plenty of opportunities for dining and shopping.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi coverage and a little street noise.

While these issues were no way deal breakers for guests, a small number of people found the Wi-Fi connection to be poor in some rooms, while there can be a little bit of street noise from a popular pub nearby.
