“wonderful getaway”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

My boyfriend took me to the Lakes for a romantic break and chose this b&b for its character as well as the price.
The breakfast was a great start to the day and kept us going till tea time! choice of full English - the bacon was very thick!, with a vegetarian option, croissants, beans or egg on toast. on top of this we could have cereal and yoghurts! the staff were well organised and served us quickly and politely.
the house was kept tidy and very clean and is so pretty to be in.
we didn't visit the lounge/communal area other than the dining room.
our room was kept clean, and they made the bed for us, even when we made it ourselves. everything was washed and replaced daily.
the bed was to die for! you can not get a mattress thicker than in that b&b, and as comfy as that! there were enough covers on the bed to keep a perfect temperature as well - as they kept the heating on thick covers weren't needed.

only thing that could have been different was the bathroom lights as only one worked - but it was nice mood lighting!

this hotel is perfect if you want to be in Windermere, but you are also close to Bowness on Windermere :)

Chose the Hilton from their website and other recommendations. Spent 3 nights M/T/W. We had the ground floor newly refurbished room 8 ? excellent furnishings and finished to high standard. Lovely breakfast and at a very reasonable time 9- 9.30 ! made a change. Rooms appear to be priced right,plenty of off road parking to the rear and ideally situated between bowness and windermere,although the walk back from bowness can be a bit hard going,especially after a meal and a beer or two !
No real complaints, few minor almost irrelevant things.
Would choose a different room though,probably upstairs,felt privacy of room a bit compromised due to its location to the front door and walkway from the rear car park.
would definately recommend and stay again.

Room Tip: upstairs rooms probably better,individual choice though

Stayed here for my honeymoon in March 2011. Had a very pleasant stay, the place was lovely and rooms furnished to a high standard. The Owner went out of his way to be of assistance, providing glasses for champagne and cake knife and plates for us to cut our wedding cake.

Breakfast was plentiful and we would definately stay again.

The owner and his daughter went out of their way to provide over and above in the way of hospitality on this very special occasion.

Just had a couple of nights at Hilton House and enjoyed the stay but there were 2 minor points which should be mentioned. An english breakfast without a sausage.............what`s going on !!, and if you like a shower with loads of water then forget it.........you can pee faster !
Having said that ,the owner and staff are very friendly,and the hotel is well placed just off the town centre.Well worth a visit.

I book this place as a suprise for my wife as it was our 3rd wedding anniversary, When we arrived the main door was open so we rang the bell and waited and waited 15 mins later still we were still waiting, a young girl came to the door, showed us to our room, we later found that our lock on the door didnt work so we rang the bell and waited, 10 mins later she came and said it'll be right its nice round here plus the hotel door is alway locked but it was open when we arrived, we went out and got back at mid night to find the young girl was having a house party with young lads outside our room shouting you,--- me and every thing else, the party was stopped at 4 in mornig by the police, it was hard getting up for breakfast at 8.30 with only 4 hours sleep, i did but my wife missed it she was too tired!! the breakfast was really nice and the lady was lovely she also told me the owner was on holiday and left his 17 year old daughter in charge of the b&b! she told me to ring back when he get back to sort out some sort of discount, so i did and he said he is not going to do anything about it and that i was just been fussy. Well thanks for SPOILING me and my wifes wedding anniversary. I will never stay there again,
