I've traveled across the world and was impressed with this hotel. The location is impeccable and the price is very reasonable. The appliances are clean and well maintained. I was particularly moved by the bedroom; the bed was comparable to a 5 hotel- very comfortable to sleep in, the toletories were top notch and the room was more spacious than...

Very good service . I stayed at Laurel Cottage for 2 nites. After good chat they kindly upgrade my room with no charge. Very generous hospitality. The food also good. You can walk just 5 mins to go to the lake and have a great view from there.

I visit the lakes alot and have never been disappointed with the b&bs I've stayed in , this one was not very clean at all in my opinion the bedding smelt of grease and I don't think it had been changed as there was a small patch of dried blood on the bed sheet at the bottom end of the...

Stopped for two nights and couldn't have chosen a better place, staff were so helpful, nothing too much of a problem for them. Got a complimentary upgrade to 4poster suite, excellent location within Bowness, restaurants and traditional pubs only a minutes walk away. Would recommend this B&B to anyone.

The Laurels is perfectly located for Dales Way walkers given that it is directly on route and close to places to eat and drink. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The rooms are interestingly presented and very comfortable. The breakfast is hearty and tasty. All-in-all a great place to stay.

This was our second stay in Bowness, and we were very impressed with the B&B's location, very close to all the restaurants and lake, made even better with free parking. The room decor felt a little dated, but was very clean. Breakfast was served in the room upon request and was delivered on time. The food was ok but not...

We recently stayed at Laurel Cottage B&B over 2 nights for my girlfriends birthday. We got a friendly welcome, were shown straight up to our room and were offered help with our bags.
