I stayed here over the Easter weekend with my husband and 2 children(6 years & 18 months). The hotel is in a convenient location just a couple of mins walk to the boats but the hotel grounds seem quite quiet( it's on a large plot with some apartments). Plenty of parking. We were allocated room 344 which has a double...

We stayed at the hotel to celebrate my birthday as a family of 6 at the end of Feb 2017. We last stayed over 3 years ago, we liked it a lot before, but the improvements to the hotel are superb. We stayed on a b&b basis and found the improved restaurant area for breakfast to be light and modern...

The room was lovely and spacious, with a huge balcony overlooking Windermere. We enjoyed the spa and pool area, although it was quite busy with kids playing, it was still relaxing. We stayed b&b and...

Attended a beautiful wedding here. The rooms are cosy, comfortable and contemporary yet, retain an old-fashioned charm which is wonderful. Pleasant grounds, excellent location and brilliant customer service.

Loved this hotel. Booked at short notice, and was told they only had a twin room. When we got there we were given a large double with a view towards the lake. (Why they spoiled the view by putting a single bed in the bay window, I have no idea; but if that's the smallest gripe about the place, that's...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Burnside Hotel and Spa, one of the finest four star Lake District Hotels, located in the best place to discover the beautiful Lake District, set in mature gardens with views overlooking Lake Windermere and the surrounding lakeland fells. Our hotel is ideally situated just a short stroll from the steamer piers that travel the length of Windermere and the bustling village centre of Bowness-on-Windermere, perfect for exploring the many historic, cultural and contemporary attractions within the Lake District including Beatrix Potter's 'Hilltop'. The Burnside Hotel offers a large selection of bedrooms from snug, standard and family rooms to beautiful suites and deluxe rooms with hot tubs, each with their own unique design. Many of our rooms have views across the gardens and trees. For a small supplement a view of Lake Windermere can be arranged. Others have views over the hotel reception and spa. The hotel offers a limited number of pet friendly rooms. Please ensure you book these rooms direct with the hotel as they are not available online or through any agent. Whichever room you choose you'll enjoy a 40 inch flat screen TV and free wi-fi, a large comfortable bed (minimum 5ft king size bed, some rooms have 6Ft super king beds or twin beds). An en-suite bathroom with bath and/or shower (some rooms have separate shower cubicles) and tea and coffee making facilities. Our Restaurant is as popular with passers-by as it is with our guests, with our tempting traditional hot and cold buffet breakfast, a sumptuously seasonal table d'hôte dinner menu using only the best locally sourced produce, with Chef's specialty dishes and homemade desserts complimented by fine wine, all make sure the view on your plate is as memorable as the one from our windows. For a light bite, our homemade bistro meals served during the day here mean you can enjoy conservatory cuisine in comfort taking in the breathtaking views over the lakes, hills and mountains or dine in our cosy lounge with a roaring log fire. Burnside Spa offers our guests pure lavish indulgence from sitting by the pool and enjoying a glass of prosecco to unwinding in one of two hot tubs, steam room or sauna; not to mention the main pool is an experience within itself, press the secret button and make the whole pool bubble. Our two treatments rooms offer a large range of treatments using Aromatherapy Associate products. All set in a relaxing and tranquil environment with mood lighting, poolside seating and bar facilities. The ultimate experience in relaxation. Romney's Snug Bar our Traditional Pub within Burnside Spa offers traditional food and real ale. Open every day, enjoy a cappuccino after that early morning swim, a light lunchtime snack or traditional bar meal early in the evening. Guests of the pub a can enjoy use of our Private 18-Seater Cinema or a game of pool (just £1.00). ... more   less
