The Burn How is a warm and lovely place to stay with neverending supplies of excellent customer sevice. The breakfast really is award winning and will keep you full until way after lunch! You are left alone to do as you like but should you need anything, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean and comfortable, perfect after a hard day of walking!!

Lovely Stay

‘Lovely Stay’
We would like to comment on the lovely stay we had in the burn How Hotel -we stayed in the disabled friendly rose garden room which was perfect for my husband who has Multiple Sclerosis. The Hotel was spotless the staff were very friendly and the food was perfect. Highly recommended.

First class accomodation & breakfast in a well placed location close to the lake side where most activities start from.
Hotel provided exactly what it advertised.



Weather could not have been worse but welcome could not have been warmer. We loved the restaurant & food & enjoyed the size & location of our room. Mrs. Liz Holland

‘Short break at Burn How’

Lovely 2 day break away.

Very near to shops and restaurants but the one thing we noticed – there was no noise. Relaxing atmosphere, excellent hosts, rooms spacious and plush. We got the feeling anything we needed they would magically provide. Will definitely be going to the Burn How again and sooner rather than later. Mrs Ruffley 25th June, 2012


‘Super, smashing, great’

Just returned from a 4 day break at the Burn How. It was great to find that the reviews i’d read prior to booking had been accurate. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfasts were a highlight -the quality could not be faulted. Never have i had that much choice of fresh fruit at a hotel breakfast! The garden chalet rooms were spacious and clean. The location was spot on – short walk to either lake or town. We arrived on the day the olympic torch “sailed” into Bowness and even the torrential rain, did not dampen our enjoyment of the evening. Would definitely recommend a stay at the Burn How. Mrs. Gaynor Goodwin

“Excellent hotel”

We had an excellent stay at this hotel. It was a good location. The room was very clean, and the food was of a high quality, the fresh fruit at breakfast was particularly good. The service was attentive, but not over-bearing or subservient. Overall a very pleasant stay, shame they could not have orgainised the weather!!!


“Lake District Minibreak”

We have just returned from a wonderful minibreak at the Burn How, all the staff were very friendly and made us feel extremely welcome. The breakfast was the best we have ever tasted and both days we were there we didn’t feel the need to have any lunch as we had such an excellent breakfast. Our garden chalet room was spacious and very clean, it had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The hotel was in a great location a short walk from the lake in one direction and in the other within minutes from all amenities Bowness has to offer. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommed the Burn How to family and friends and espite the torrential rain we had a fabulous time and can’t wait to return to this hotel


“Fab1 Fab! Fab!

We (being a couple aged 29 and 30) stayed here in May 2012 as it was a reasonable price and location.

Our room was lovely, quite like being in your own cottage (garden chalet) so you can come and go as you please. I t was very clean, nicely furnished with nice toiletries in the bathroom.

The gardens are beautiful with lots of birds to watch whislt you are sitting on your balcony or having breakfast. A lot of time and effort is clearly taken in the gardens and surroundings of the hotel.

The breakfast is delicious-lots of fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurts etc and a nic e choice of a full english, eggs benedict etc to follow.

The staff were exceptionally friendly and created a very nice welcoming atmosphere. Is is clearly a family business which I think is far nicer than a standard chain type of hotel!

I could not recommend this hotel enough and it is literally a 2 minute walk to the shops, bars, lake and lake cruise terminal. Thera are so many shops, restaurants and pubs nearby so you will not be bored whatever the weather.

It is so good we are going to try and go back for a few days at the end of June!

I have stayed in so many hotels worldwide but to be fair I only take time to write a review if the hotel is exceptionally good or bad. I think this hotel is a true little gem and the perfect place for a weekend getaway!
