Most disappointed to read such an inaccurate review. We clearly state on all our advertising and correspondence that parking is "limited" and offered on a first come basis but also suggest alternative parking which is two minutes walk away, none of which appear to have been noted by this guest. Upon arrival, shortly after the current guests had just departed...

Me & the wife went with a few friends for our yearly night out in Bowness & chose here to stay as it is literally a couple of minutes from the central point of Bowness. Great access to everything. Nice comfy & homely room - the only down point being you're looked in on from the main road at the...

Loved staying here! Its cosy, comfortable and welcoming. Rooms are accessed through the side door and situated Above the coffee shop which is where breakfast is served. Breakfast was delicious, staff are great, very friendly and helpful but not obtrusive, we were left to our own devises once we were given our keys. The rooms are dated but comfortable. Ours...

Clean comfortable rooms. Reasonably priced. Friendly and helpful staff. This turned out to be a pleasant surprise on a one day, unplanned, family trip. Specially enjoyed the location of the place, almost in the middle of the small town

We stayed at Monties for 1 night in Room 1, a double ensuite room. The check in was not a good start as our room was not ready at the stated check in time. We were not shown to the room just given the key. We were not told what time breakfast was (or the Wifi code) and with no...

Stayed for three nights and would say that in terms of location, Monties is great. It is smack right in Bowness just across from the shops and just under five minutes walk to the Lake.

Great location in the heart of Bowness. The staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient. The rooms are well appointed, spacious and clean. The breakfast in the morning was tasty and plentiful. Lovely furnishings and a nice chilled out feel to it. We found the price to be fair and good value for the accommodation.
