Positive Reviews

Excellent location

The central location of this B&B has suited past guests perfectly, many of whom have commented that they enjoyed being able to walk to the town centre and Lake Windermere. Guests have also found that this property offers a good base from which to explore the Lake District National Park.

Enjoyable breakfast

Although a small number of guests disliked having to order breakfast the night before, the majority have enjoyed their morning meal here. The breakfast is found to be well cooked and nicely presented. Plus, guests mention that the portion sizes are generous.

Quiet and comfortable rooms

Guests have tended to rate the standard of the rooms at this Windermere B&B highly, finding the accommodation quiet, clean, and comfortable. The beds are found to be of a good quality and very few guests mention encountering any difficulties with the Wi-Fi.

Negative Reviews

Dated appearance

Although this property is generally found to be clean and comfortable, guests do also tend to note that the appearance of this B&B is a little dated. It's a cosmetic issue more than anything else but does mean that the property may not suit guests who prefer a more modern look.

Carpeted bathrooms

A number of guests have expressed disappointment with the fact that the bathrooms are carpeted. This has led to comments about odd smells and doubt over the hygiene of the bathroom floor.
