Great Stay In Bowness

Stay Date: 26/03/11, a customer from Uk who stayed at this hotel wrote this review.

Excellent hotel with friendly, attentive staff and excellent food. In great location on lakeside with fabulous views. Only downside - pillows were too soft, resulting in a stiff neck. See More  Read more information   Collapse  Hide

Short Break In Bowness

Stay Date: 28/09/10, a customer from Uk who stayed at this hotel wrote this review.

Old England is an excellent hotel, super room with a lake view (upgraded on arrival). Great service at reception, dining room and lounge bar. The food was superb at breakfast and evening meal. See More  Read more information Constructive criticism: cocktail bar which leads to the terrace, the two foreign staff on first afternoon were abrupt and very regimented, yet the tables and chairs on the terrace were not set outcorrectly despite it being a lovely day. Chairs were tilted over the tables and were a trip hazard to guests. Roberto's restaurant in Bowness. Superb food and service. Fully recommend a visit.   Collapse  Hide

The hotel is lovely, perfect location right on the lake and close to lots of bars and restaraunts.Our room was very spacious the only drawback we were in the roof so it only had velux windows in the See More  Read more information roof. You could see the lake if you stood on a chair to look out but it really wasn't a problem. The first night we had dinner in the hotel, really good, it was included in the price. I think wewould have thought twice about it if it had not been, also the bar prices are a little steep. All in all we would return there and also recommend it a really lovely place to stay. My husband reallyenjoyed the pool and the leisure facilities.   Collapse  Hide

Weekend in Bowness on Windermere

Stay Date: 25/01/13, a customer aged 45-64 from Chester Le Street who stayed at this hotel wrote this review.

Set off early Friday 25th Jan to get there before bad snow forecast.Just made it in time when whole area was covered in 6 inches in a couple of hours.Could not travel anywhere so visited couple of See More  Read more information bars before a meal in our hotel The Old England. The Albert and The Royal Oak are two great pubs with lots of atmosphere,well worth visiting. Our hotel although a little pricey was a great place tostay. Large clean modern room,fantastic bathroom,good spa facilities,polite friendly staff. The evening meal was part of the superbreak deal and was excellent apart from the service which was really slowconsidering only a few diners were eating. On Sat night we ate at the Tapas bar on the main street which was disapointing and not very authentic spanish tasting food ,(cured meats tasted like Tescos).On the Sunday most of the snow had gone and the roads were clear.We will be returning to Bowness in the future as its a great place to stay for a short break, only next time not in the middle ofWinter.   Collapse  Hide

Old England Bowness

Stay Date: 31/01/12, a customer who stayed at this hotel wrote this review.

The hotel and staff were first class.There was an irritating low level buzzing sound from the gents toilets which we could through the wall to our room which was room 18. We reported it to staff who See More  Read more information offered to move us but they managed to resolve the problem for our 2nd night. The room was very large and sumptuous. The hotel is central to all amenities in Bowness and the surrounding area and thebreakfast/restaurant area is lakeside which was fantastic. The only down side was the fact the bar was very expensive and on the 2nd night we got back at 10.30pm for drinks and it was closed, even toresidents. The concierge told me the manager had closed it as there were no customers so i went next door to the nags head pub where I was told it was very common for the bar to close early in thehotel.   Collapse  Hide
