“Excellent Burn How Hotel”

“excellent Burn How Hotel”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 11 April 2012 NEW

We have stayed many times in Bowness but never at the Burn How but we’ll definitely come again. We were in a family room on a two night break with our two daugters. Room one was large clean comfortable and overlooking the garden. All the staff were so family friendly and were totally down to earth. Nothing was too much trouble.
The breakfast was possibly the best breakfast we have ever had and yet again, the staff were keen, helpful and very frieindly. We arrived home today (Wednesday) very relaxed. Thank you to all the people at the Burn How Hotel.

‘Windermere Wonderland’

Mrs. Dorothy Walker ‘Windermere Wonderland’ We have visited Burn How Garden House Hotel several times and absolutely love it every time we visit. When we leave we just can’t wait to return. The friendly atmosphere, comfortable and cosy accomodation as well as the first rate food and beautifully selected paintings, ornaments and pretty garden always makes our stay unforgettable. Also the attention to detail for guests by the staff is very much in evidence, from the abundance of teas, coffees and biscuits in our room to the teapots that never drip!! We just love it and really appreciate the opportunity to spend time in their wonderful Hotel


‘Fantastic, flexible and welcoming’

Mrs. Karen Velasquez ‘Fantastic, flexible and welcoming’ Travelling with a toddler and gravely pregnant can be stressful at the best of times, it was such a welcome relief to arrive at the hotel.
Check in was fast and efficient, our room was warm, modern, clean, spacious and cot already up and ready for our little one.
Breakfast was amazing, they had a high hair already set up on a window table from where out little one could watch the birds in the feeders. I must say tue eggs benedict were miraculously good.
Our every need was catered for before we had opportunity to ask.
We had planned a romantic meal at dinner time using the baby listening service – unfortunately baby would not go to bed in time – staff were ver flexible, they waited for us and eventually offered to bring the meal to us instead – so it was a romantic meal for 3 instead!
Finally – they allowed us to check out late at no extra charge in order for toddler to have her nap before we set off.
Thanks again to everyone involved, it has been a Reilly memorable break.

Happy Easter to all from the Burn How

We wish everyone a Happy Easter and hope that those of you that gave up chocolate for Lent don’t over do your consumption with the Easter Eggs.

After our Royal visit to Staveley where Prince Charles met a member of Nuture Lakeland along with other business that use Staveley Mill, the area is now looking forward to the next event the arrival of the olympic torch on Thursday 21st June, remember to reserve your room as not only is the olympic torch here but we have the Great North Swim that weekend too.

Closer we have Damson Day at the Lyth valley on Saturday 14th April, hope to see you at the hotel for one of the events, and take a look at our special offer page.


Breakfast best in the Lakes

‘Good as ever ! Breakfast is the best in the
Lakes.Room perfect and staff friendly and attentive.See you soon .Regards

‘I stayed for two nights with my wife and 12 year old son. Our accommodation was a chalet family room – quite unusual but met if not exceeded our expectations. The room was clean and nice and bright, and it was clear the bathroom had been refurbished in the not too distant past – it was also clean and of a good standard. All the staff we spoke to were friendly and polite, and the breakfasts were good – and we liked that they were served up to 10am. We didn\’t eat dinner in the hotel, instead taking the short walk to restaurants in Bowness.

In summary – we enjoyed our stay and would consider returning.



‘We have stayed at numerous hotels throughout the years and normally we have two breaks in the Lakes each year. This was our first visit to \’Burn How\’ and we have to say it was delightful. On arrival, we were a little doubtful when we realised that the rooms were remote from main building, but our doubts were immediately dispelled when we were shown to our room. It was very spacious and furnished to a high standard. The highlight has to be the food – the dinner was without doubt the best we have eaten. It was wonderful. Congratulations to the chef. Finally the welcome and the quality of service was exemplory. We shall return.’from Mr Mrs Rigby
