Bowness Burnside Definitely Recommend !
Enjoyed a two night stay with breakfast at Burnside.
Staff were all friendly and helpful. Great position, close to all shops, restaurants etc. 5 minute walk. Hotel has a swimming pool which although I didn't use looks great. The bedroom was very large in comparison to others ,clean and tidy, a welcome gift on arrival consisting of two bottles of water and a tray of petit fours. There a different dining venues there depending if you want a bar menu or three courses. We only had breakfast as we know a great Italian restaurant close by that we love. I would definitely recommend Burnside hotel and shall be returning very soon.
room was adequate however the bed was small as was the television (could only get bbc programmes) the pillows were rather hard the heat in the room was so bad I couldn't sleep even with the patio door open.
Good location, pool and sauna facilities in need of modernisation
Good stay, reasonably good value for money.
Leisure facilities need a good refurbishment, a bit dated and borderline H&S non-compliant. Breakfast was nice, wifi connection didn't work for some reason.
Hotel was a perfect location for Bowness.
Our room was quite spacious but the bathroom was very small and dirty. The toilet hadnt seen a clean for a while and the bathroom floor looked like it hadnt been swept or mopped in months.
Staff were nice but not friendly. In the middle of checking in the receptionist answered the telephone!. The breakfast was superb.
We had booked treatments in the spa only to be told two days before our arrival that they all had to be changed due to lack of staff and lack of products. B
The therapists were very good but it was still a disappointment as the spa was one of the main reasons we booked the hotel.
No Wi-Fi zone etc
The hotel is a bit dated and the patio overlooking the lake is one where you really can't see the lake because all the hedges and trees are too high it is nowhere near as nice as it looks
however the food was alright and there are plenty of places in the hotel to Chill
But a major problem was we had no Wi-Fi at all throughout our stay
we were given a handout on how to wipe the memory on our iPhones to try and get it but without any conventional Wi-Fi connection it really was an isolated break barely worth the money overall at room only
The location is very close to Bowness Pier and the breakfast is very delicious.
The hotel staff is very friendly. The Wifi in the room is very poor. If the hotel website can include how to go there by bus and which bus number can take will be more convenient for visitors who do not travel by car. Bus number from Windermere train station to Bowness Pier are number 6/599/755/800
Cheap & cheerful
Nothing fancy but great location, clean & quiet.
Good value for money
To start there was a total lack of direction shown by the staff, as to where the dining room was.
Had to guess as to where our room was too, we were just told that the lift is over there & it's there 3rd floor. When we arrived in the room there was sweet wrappers on the floor, also a dead fly on the floor & 2 more on the window sill.
The toilet would not flush, as the tap at the side had not been turned on.
Which I presume that the room had not been used for a couple of days.
When we went for breakfast I had to wait ten minuites a for some toast, while my breakfast was going cold. I also heard another guest having to ask for cutlery, to which the waiter said " I fuckoff not understand.!!!"
Complete incompetence as far as I'm concerned by all members of the staff & will not be staying at any other "Worst Western" venues.
Completely "disgusted" for the price of the room I was charged.
My comments will also be put on trip adviser, & I will be telling all my friends and family to avoid best western at all costs.!.
Only stayed the one nite but pleasant enough it was clean and tidy, close to all the shops and the lake.
Its Gone West(ern)
First impressions are ok a basic reception area but functional.
Booked on late rooms they mucked it up, I booked two rooms for two couples, they forwarded to the hotel two single occupancy rooms. Both rooms were not cleaned after the previous guests, even the linen was not clean. The staff were brilliant a guy called Jordan was very good under the circumstances and did his best to get us relocated to a different room. The house keeping people want a wake up call, after looking at two other rooms we settled on the better one...mainly because it was their last choice...they were full...A very poor experience, the whole place is in dire need of investment!. No I would not return!
