The guest house was adequate for somewhere to sleep but not very homely and didn't speak to any staff or proprietor or any enquiries how we were getting on getting around. Breakfast was nice and rooms were warm

In the centre of Bowness. Parking 100 metres away at larger hotel. Need to order breakfast the day before from limited choice of egg on toast or full English. Room not cleaned properly, used glasses not cleaned/replaced, sink not cleaned. Room small with no window.

Homemade biscuits with well stocked tea and coffee facilities. Sherry and biscuits on arrival. Breakfast had good choice and was delicious. The whole building is...

Stayed at Virginia Cottage for three nights. Very clean and comfortable and homely. Friendly staff, great breakfast choice and very important to me, very dog friendly. Fab location, few minutes walk from the lake. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Room - was very nice and clean. Not as big as I expected for the price but very accommodating. The hotel is very well run, very efficient. Breakfast is quality rather than quantity but loads of fruit / cereals to choose from. The only negative and this is not the owners fault is the entrance opens on to the road...

We spent 3 nights at Virginia Cottage and can certify that it was a fine experience. We had booked a four poster bed and when we arrived found the room ready and waiting for us. The room itself was well appointed with the bed, dressing table, sofa and the bathroom had a huge bathtub. We arrived by car and parking...
