Good, central location to main tourist attractions

Location: Up a bit of a hill so nice view, very close to Lake Windermere so very pretty and in tourist part of town, groceries, shopping, tons of restaurants.
Owner at front desk was very friendly and helpful, helped with heavy luggage up stairs. Breakfast staff were lovely, as was breakfast. Room was a little small with queen bed squeezed in, but good view and comfy. Modern bathroom.

Quintessential English Accomodation

Pros: The stone building was beautiful. Very clean and nicely decorated. Comfortable rooms and beds. The hosts were excellent.
Cons: The bathroom was too warm. Didn't know how to turn the heat down.
Location: Excellent location with a short walk to everything you need such as lots of little shops and many great restaurants/cafes & of course Lake Windermere!
I took my Mum on holiday to the UK from Australia and The Lake District being is her favourite place in England I knew I had to find something special for us to stay in. I am so glad I chose the Westbourne for our stay. We were greeted with a warm welcome after a very long drive and was shown around the beautiful stone building and to our room. Our room was spotless and tastefully decorated and very comfortable too. The hosts were so helpful, professional and friendly and it was obvious they are meticulous with the running of their hotel. We loved every minute and only wished we could have stayed for longer. Thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable.
