Had a really nice stay, the lady there is so friendly and helpful. Accomdated my vegan diet for breakfast. Rooms were warm and comfortable and the spa facilities 1 minute up the road were luxury. I went at 8am and was the only one in there. Beautiful location.

Excellent place to stay in Bowness. Superb location, just minutes from town centre pubs and restaurants . Clean and tidy, comfy room, lovely food.
