“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012 via mobile

We stayed on a Thurs/Fri break so got a very good deal at £41 per person per night for a triple room. Our room had a disabled bathroom which was really good for mum. The surrounding gardens were beautiful and the breakfasts were excellent. The road to the hotel was on a bit of a hill, but then most on Bowness is! Staff were friendly and service excellent. We would stay again and recommend Burn Hows to others.

Lovely hotel. Big comfy rooms set around the gardens, chalet-style. Freindly, competant staff. Excellent food. What more can I say!

My husband booked the Burn How as a surprise for our 23rd wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived we were treated as special guests. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and our evening meal was supurb. Waiting for us at breakfast the next morning was a beautiful anniversary card from the staff at the hotel! No pomp and ceremony just a card. I will never forget this kindness. The staff are amazing and super friendly without fuss. We had two night at the hotel and neither of us wanted to leave. We will be going back very soon. Highly recommended

My room at the Burn How was separated from the main hotel and this appeared to be the norm for most rooms. It was clean and tidy with a dedicated parking space. Plus points include a nice location, clean room, pleasant staff and a lovely breakfast. Minus points for me include variable luck with getting hot water in the shower and too much noise from the neighbouring rooms.

Thank you for your review of your stay with us as it is nice to receive feedback from our guests.
As you comment all of our rooms are situated within the grounds of the hotel, the main building housing the reception, lounge, restaurant and bar, we find that this gives our guests more privacy, it was unfortunate that you found that you had noisy neighbours during your stay as we were not made aware of this, we did not have the opportunity to deal with this for you. We were also sorry to read that you had problems with the shower in your room which will be looked into now that it has been brought to our attention.

My stay at burn how was probably the best in a long time. The staff were polite and friendly with good knowledge of the area. The hotel is brilliantly situated just outside of the town with a short walk to lake windamere. The rooms were beautiful and the food magnificent. If anything could be changed I would say a bigger bath in the en-suite, as they were a little short. It was very quiet even though they had a band playing during the Bownes Blues Festival. Included in the price was breakfast with a wide variety to choose from. Definitely worth the cost.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
This unique Lake District hotel only two minutes stroll from Lake Windermere and the village of Bowness, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. The Burn How's unique layout is refreshingly different to most hotels; all of the bedrooms are located outside of the main building within the private grounds making the stay peaceful and relaxing for the discerning guest. You can take picturesque walks from the hotel, or cruise on Lake Windermere, and if you take the Post Knott walk and you find the hotels bench, bring back the inscription and you will have a drink on us. For the shopping magnets find a special Lakeland gift in the village only two minutes walk away. On your return from a full day, relax and meet friends or family in the congenial atmosphere of the lounge and bar, or on pleasant summers evening sit out on the patio and take in the beautiful surroundings. Relax in the comfort of your room choosing from modern chalet style to four poster or traditional bedrooms. Most have private sun terraces. All have ensuite bathrooms, colour televisions, telephones and hot beverages. Rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the rose garden and patio, with some having disabled facilities. There is ample free parking available. Experience English and French Cuisine made only from the freshest produce and served in the style in which Burn How Garden House Hotel is famous. Three courses and coffee is around £35.00 Per person. At the end of the day relax with family and friends in the congenial atmosphere of the lounge and bar or on a pleasant summers evening take in the beautiful surroundings of the patio and gardens. Shoppers and browsers will delight in the speciality stores and attractions in nearby Windermere and Bowness. Whilst a drive over the Hard Knott pass is for the courageous with its 1 in 3 and 2.5 Gradients - but the views are spectacular. ... more   less
