New Year Stay’

Both my husband and myself thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Burn How. The food was absolutely fantastic, we have been staying in the Lakes for well over ten years but have never had food so good. Compliments to the chef and also to the staff who took care of us during our stay. This is a lovely lakeside hotel and should stay that way. We shall be returning to the hotel this year for our 3rd visit. Thanks to all at Burn How Hotel.

Perfect Location

Location was perfect. Only stayed b+b so cannot comment on evening meal, but breakfast was to a good standard. Room was clean and tidy, also had a loverly patio looking over gardens with an abundance of birds making regular visits to the bird food left by the owners, this was in November as well. All in all the staff made you welcome and we will be returning in the near future.

Wonderful Stay

We have been staying regularly at the Burn How for over 15 years now and have never been disappointed with our choice during all that time.
If you are looking for a modern “boutique” hotel then don’t stay here. If, however, you like a proper “country house” hotel with charm and character, the best range of breakfast menu you could ever want and excellent evening dining, then in our opinion you will be hard pressed to find anywhere that’s better value for money. The rooms are traditionally furnished and kept spotlessly clean. The regular staff, Linda, Maggie, Melissa and Dorothy, are always friendly and attentive and keep the place running like a swiss watch, under the watchful eye of Michael the owner who is never far away. Added to this the Hotel sits in delightful grounds and is literally only a few minutes from Bowness and Lake Windermere. We hope to continue staying there for many more years to come and continue to recommend it to all our friends. Long may it continue!!
