I stayed in room 8 and it was very spacious with a great bathroom. My breakfast was great each morning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Bowness is a great place with lots of choice for eating and drinking

Very nice hotel with great hosts. We had an upper floor with low headroom in the en-suite and difficult shaving facilities with the wash hand basin outside in the room. Overall we did enjoy our stay here.
