Our stay at Kirkwood was for my wifes birthday, we couldn't have stayed at a nicer place, the food was excellent and nothing was too much trouble, the couple who run the B&B were really nice and helpful they put a box of chocolates in our room when it was my wifes birthday, we would definitely stay again.
Great place to stay, nice location almost midway beween windermere station and bow ness Very close to main street.
We stayed for 3 nights and room was clean and with all the basic requirements
We were in room 6, it had small windows but okay. Only problem is that. In room 6 there was no wifi signal as it was on top floor of guesthouse
Guesthouse had a nice lounge and breakfast was also very good. We were welcomed very well and were even given some basic local area introduction
I would stay there again if i have to
It was the customer service that made this stay.
From being offered a tea/coffee when I arrived ( and biscuits too!) to offering to walk my dog, who was in the car whilst I was out, nothing was too much trouble. Everything I required was in the room, the bed (four poster) was very comfy, the bedding was a good weight and the breakfast was well cooked and very tasty, down to the locally sourced jam. I gather the hosts have only been there a few months and are planning to redecorate which to be fair is a good idea, but with the service I received I wouldn't have minded what the decor was like.
Exceptional Accomodation and Service
My girlfriend and I recently decided to take a visit to the lake district.
Windermere is an ideal place to stay and kirkwood is ideally located with a 5-10 minute walk into the heart of Windermere. We stayed for a 3 nights in room 5 which had everthing you need and a lovely four poster bed. Paula and Richard were welcoming and very friendly and also extremely helpful - they know the area very well and are happy to give advice on walks and places to visit. The breakfasts each morning were brilliant - cooked to your specifications and delicious to eat. We would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone wishing to visit the Lake District.
What a lovely place to stay. The hosts are pleasant, accommodating and helpful in a way you don't experience often elsewhere, and the facilities are second to none. The house is very clean, and welcoming and easy to find. Local amenities are close enough for a short stroll and parking was plentiful. All in all, I would recommend Kirkwood to anyone, who likes quality, value, and trouble-free accommodation.
Very enjoyable stay, helpful proprietors with excellent local knowledge.
Generally good base to explore from. Only slight criticism (from my other half) was the limited and early window for breakfast. (08:30-09.00) To be fair when she is up and about everyday at 7am for work she had hoped for a later start to her days away, but all in all pretty good.
Lovely people but bad points let the place down
Our first impression - welcome was friendly and the bedroom looked dated but clean.
However on closer inspection the room (room 5) was well past its best. The mattress was extremely lumpy and uncomfortable. The bathroom was minuscule, the sink being totally in the way when you stepped out of the shower. Although not essential, wifi was advertised but the signal so poor it was unusable.
would definitely recommendv
Lovely welcome, very family friendly, awesome breakfast, very helpful with maps etc, only 7 mins from Windermere on foot.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this accomodation.
Warm and friendly!
My family and I declare that we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend at kirkwood.
We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome and given a short tour of the guest house. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. We were given a variety of choice for breakfast including a yummy vegetarian fry up, fried eggs, home made waffles with syrup, and even my fussy 8year old ate heartily. The rooms were clean and serviced regularly, and we appreciated the nice little personal touches the owners left in the room..with chocs!. :) perfect!. I especially liked how the owners interacted with us, giving advice on local attractions and even provided a typed up guided tour to help tourists make the most of the beautiful views and activities. We were very well looked after and wouldn't hesitate to stay at this lovely guest house again :)
