Brendan Chase
Ranked #95 of 107 Windermere B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 September 2011

Brendan Chase is a decent basic B&B with a quirky host. It has a good location in a quiet road in Windermere. Our room was very small for a double and the mattress was nearing its sell by date. However, it's clean and the breakfast is good. Decent value for money at the lower end of the market.

Three women friends arrived without reservations and were shown a spacious room with three twin beds. We felt lucky! David was a fabulous host with a good sense of humor and great advice on nearby walks. The B&B is large and David and his helper stayed busy caring for and cleaning, welcoming guests and cooking the best breakfast we had on our stay. He does have rules which ultimately benefit all the guests. We enjoyed our stay and even went by to say hi on our way back to the train in Windermere. We would all stay there again. Thanks David!

Three of us from the US stayed here in early July 2011. It was the only place for which we didn't have a reservation on our 2-week trip in the Lake District, and it turned out to be a gem. Thanks largely to David, the owner/host. He may, initially, seem - to use the words of a reviewer below - a little "eccentric," but we soon found him to be a helpful, informative, and friendly host! When we arrived at the B&B late in the day, he promptly recommended a great short walk to Orrest Head nearby with fantastic views of the lake and surrounding city. The not-pricey B&B is clean and had the perfect accommodations for three travelers on a walking/hiking trip. We count the breakfasts we had there as one of the best during our two weeks in the Lake District. On our return back to Windermere to catch the train - to which the B&B is very close - we even stopped in to see David and invited him to coffee at a nearby cafe. Not only would we definitely return, we did ...

Have just returned from a trip to the lake district with my partner where we stayed at Brendan Chase B&B. On arrival we were greeted by David who at first seemed a little 'eccentric' but nice enough. David did insist on running through the rules full throttle the moment we stepped through the door which we were a bit surprised about but if thats the way he runs his business than ok.

The rooms are very basic and in need of much refurbishment but you pay for what you get. I wasn't expecting the standards of a posh hotel or anything as you can see from the photo's on the website that it's quite dated but I must say that the rooms are very poor and the whole b&b smells like an old peoples home.

My partner and I went out for the day and on return we purchased a bottle of wine to open whilst we were freshening up for the evening. I had to ask David if it were possible to borrow 2 wine glasses and a cork screw. On asking this question I was abruptly told to use the plastic cups provided in the room. He did lend us his corkscrew but I must say with the attitude that this was a huge inconvenience.

We went out for the evening and returned back to Brendan Chase and went to bed. Unfortunately our room was positioned next door to the shared bathroom and there were lots of people from different countries staying who liked to shower at 2/3 in the morning. Needless to say we did not get a good nights sleep.

The next morning we came downstairs fro breakfast. On arrival we were told by David that breakfast was served between 8 and 9am. We arrived in the breakfast room at 8.40 and sat ourselves down. When David came into the room, he made a comment that it was almost lunchtime, as if we were very late coming down from our room. Then after a little while he made a further comment that he had been waiting for everyone to come down since 8am but everyone turned up later. I found this to b a bit rude to moan about people coming down between the correct times. It's not as if we turned up at 8.58 demanding a cooked breakfast.

All in all, not a very good experience at Brendan Chase and will not be returning under any circumstances. It seems to me that for David, his guests are somewhat of an inconvenience for him. The rooms are cheap and I understand that you pay for what you get however, if you are paying your hard earned cash to stay somewhere then my advice is to pay that little bit extra where you'll get a good nights sleep and good hospitality.
