We could only stay for one night on12th July, our Anniversary due to hotel being booked up. Jason and his staff could not be more attentive. The room was lovely and clean and toiletries of high quality. Breakfast was delicious. Cannot wait to return in 3 weeks. Thanks. keith and Debbie.

Had a really nice stay at laurel cottage. Friendly staff & got upgraded to a bigger room which was really nice at no extra charge. Breakfast was excellent & would return here again. Good central location & free parking.

A B&B with parking is a great asset in Bowness, the car park is a little steep but worth it. Staff are lovely and couldn't do enough to help, we had an upgrade with a four poster! Rooms are spotless with a fridge and a Bose iPod dock which was great. The location couldn't be better for a night exploring...

Not much to fault this hotel on really!! Stayed in the heatwave last month (weekend of 12th to 14th July) and sleep was slightly uncomfortable due to lack of air conditioning and the shower/bathroom was slightly too small but that was about it!! Breakfast was superb, probably one of the best I've had at any hotel/B&B for years!!

I stayed in laurel cottage in Bowness on Windemere in may on the 17th and 18th. Although the room was ok I found the owner to be very rude. After booking the cottage for the two nights i booked the room for an extra night (16th May), before I set off on the 16th I rang the owner to query...

I've traveled across the world and was impressed with this hotel. The location is impeccable and the price is very reasonable. The appliances are clean and well maintained. I was particularly moved by the bedroom; the bed was comparable to a 5 hotel- very comfortable to sleep in, the toletories were top notch and the room was more spacious than...

Firstly all the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant, on the down side our room was very noisy due to the front location and has with a very small shower room with poor shower , the bedroom itself could do with a makeover and brightening up.The dark brown wall has obviously suffered from a water...

Very good service . I stayed at Laurel Cottage for 2 nites. After good chat they kindly upgrade my room with no charge. Very generous hospitality. The food also good. You can walk just 5 mins to go to the lake and have a great view from there.

I visit the lakes alot and have never been disappointed with the b&bs I've stayed in , this one was not very clean at all in my opinion the bedding smelt of grease and I don't think it had been changed as there was a small patch of dried blood on the bed sheet at the bottom end of the...

Hi there, I am sorry to hear your expectations were not as you wished, and a touch dissapointed you preferred to write here instead as coming to me with your issue.

Stopped for two nights and couldn't have chosen a better place, staff were so helpful, nothing too much of a problem for them. Got a complimentary upgrade to 4poster suite, excellent location within Bowness, restaurants and traditional pubs only a minutes walk away. Would recommend this B&B to anyone.
