I stayed at Lake View and was a little apprehensive given the previous reviews. However it has recently been overtaken by new management. I found the rooms to be spotlessly clean with cosy little finishes. The breakfast was the best English breakfast I've had for a while and the Sunday Lunch was to die for and both was reasonably priced....

Was panicking after reading last review...having already booked room! However, guesthouse a great find! Bed linen was of great quality, scrummy feel, lovely scrunch to duvet. Bed was perfect for us. Our room had sitting area with comfy chairs and views to lake. Opted for additional breakfast at £5 per person...I am still full! Unbelievable quality for what we payed,...

I booked a family room at Lake view via booking.com - facilities listed numerous things that were not in our room. The decor is very tired and dated, I assume the photos are quite old. The 2 single beds in this room were worn out, uncomfortable and noisy! Even the bedding crinkled it was that nasty! The curtains weren't big...

I was hesitant about this place based on last few reviews but had no choice so took the risk. While Theresa and Colette were really sweet and friendly , let us checkin early and booked us a cab to station .. The room itself was very dated and non functional ..There were no extra towels for the kids , mattress...

My wife and I stayed at the lake view guest house last week-end ( 7th -9th October) and found it to be very comfortable. It was room only, but it had a fridge and tea and coffee making kit and was well appointed for shops, restaurants and bars. It was very clean although a bit basic. When we arrived we...

we found out the previous owners don't have this place anymore due to some pretty sad circumstances hence the reviews taking a turn for the worst ! When we arrived we waited over an hour to get access and wouldnt have got in at all if we wouldn't have followed someone in who was staying there so we managed to...

Before you book this place - please note that it is NOT in any way shape or form, a Bed & Breakfast establishment. Despite the sign outside stating Bed & Breakfast & despite the photographs of breakfast everywhere - it does not offer any sort of food. Nor, despite the name, does it have views of Lake Windermere - unless...

I do't know why this place has so many good reviews, from booking because of the reviews I am extremely disappointed. When I arrived I was greeted by a locked door and a note stuck onto it saying i had to go to a hotel 4 doors up, I went there and waited 10 minutes before someone finally came up...

We stayed there twice and would love to go back again. The food is really good. The rooms are nice and cosy.The place is very close to the lake. The parking is just behind the building. The hosts are very nice and make you feel at home.

Visited this guesthouse for the 3rd time. Now owned by a lovely couple, who also own Field House (a couple of doors away). Really nice big rooms with a sitting area and window overlooking the lake. well positioned in Bowness, only a couple of minutes from all the bars, restaurants and shops.
