We stayed two nights on Valentines weekend and were made to feel at ease from the moment we arrived by the owner Georgeene. The room was clean and modern with ample storage space. Ideally situated just a 15 minute walk up to Windermere or a few minutes walk down to the lake. All rooms were ground floor which was a...

We stayed here just for one night on 8th Jan, room was beautiful, modern and clean. We were greeted by Georgeene who was lovely and spent time recommending the best places to eat that evening and how to find them. Cooked breakfast in the morning was excellent! Would definitely stay here again, Lisa and George.

When we arrived we were greeted by Georgeene who was very welcoming and showed us to our room. She explained where to go in Bowness and especially about where to eat, which helped us alot as we had not been to the area before.

The single bedroom I used was well-appointed and welcoming. So were the hosts - definitely out to oblige. Sandown is well situated for Windermere's restaurants, its rail station and Bowness, the larger community down the hill, with a convenience store open till late. All are about five minutes'walk. Sandown's breakfast was just right.

The owners were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and they were incredibly helpful. Breakfast was top-notch with all ingredients locally sourced, although it's only available 9-9.30. Brilliantly located close to the town centre.

Maybe I'm just naive and haven't stayed in enough of these places but this disappointed. I wasn't expecting a lake view but I also wasn't expecting a ground floor room with a view of the car. The description made it out to be very swish but while it was spotlessly clean it was small and a large person would NOT...
