As the owners of Monties, we are very proud of our guesthouse but, we've said enough about what we think of our rooms, food and amenities - here's what some of our previous guests have said:

“Lovely Bed & Breakfast”
We booked Monties, then read the reviews so we were a little apprehensive. However on arrival the lady welcomed us and showed us to our lovely, cosy, clean room. No monies were asked for up front. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was great. Parking could be a problem but this is probably all over in the Lake District.

“An excellent bed breakfast would definately go again"
A short break Monday to Friday, very friendly staff, excellent breakfast very good all round. Friendly staff would always help out, room was very nice lovely hotel. Helped with parking gave me permit for week which was really happy.

“Exactly what we needed” -
Exactly what we needed, very friendly and helpful service and lovely spacious rooms. Lovely few days, beautiful weather and fabulous food.

“Nice b&b”
Had a very pleasent two nights in this b and b, room very clean and neat. The owner was very freindly and there was no demand for money up front as stated in previoues reviews.Breakfast was ok but have had better. location is very good just a couple of minutes walk to the lake. Enjoyed a nice meal at the old john peel inn .Would definitely stay at this b and b again.

“Excellent place to stay and close to everything"

We used the hotel as a base to travel to other places. It was very convenient and wouldn't hesitate staying here again. Clean and comfortable, staff extremely friendly.

“Better than expected”
I booked this B&B as it was the only one in the area I could find that would let me stay for one night. After reading other reviews, I was prepared for the worst, but the experience was better than I had anticipated.
On arrival, the cafe was very busy, but the staff member took time to show us to our room and check we had everything we needed. The room itself was a decent size, nicely decorated, with everything we needed provided. The only downside was that the room was rather warm, as the radiator was on and couldnt be switched off. On checkout the staff member asked if everything had been okay, and was polite and friendly. Based on this visit, I would use this B&B again.

“Great, very comfortable, friendly and very helpful staff"
Our room was comfortable and very clean. The staff were very helpful in recommending good places to eat for evening meal and were very accommodating with request for an early breakfast, thank you. The hotel was centrally located, clean and friendly.

"Romantic and beautiful rooms"
Very comfortable bed and lovely decor. Location was perfect. The staff were very polite and friendly. Breakfast was good with a choice of cereals and full english. Great value for money, we will definitely be returning again in the future.

“Me and Mum"

Enjoyed our stay, I had been before and decided to treat my Mum. Location excellent as very central, ideal for my mum as next to the shops. The room was lovely and the breakfast great. I would recommend it.

“Can't think of any faults!"
We were looking for a quiet, cosy room to stay for a few days and Monties was exactly what we wanted. As soon as we arrived, the staff were friendly, the room was nice and cosy, the breakfast was lovely and it was in a nice location for food and walking. We are thinking of returning again next year and Monties would definitely be our first choice!

“Simply fantastic hotel, value, cleanliness, food and staff. WILL stay again. Well recomended"
We were worried about what we were going to because of the price, well it turned out to be totally opposite. The staff were fantastic, the room immaculatey clean and the food superb. I take some pleasing and this really did please me. We even played noughts and crosses which were placed on the landing, with another guest which we never met, which added some humour to our stay.

“Overnight stay for birthday celebration"
The accomodation was adequate and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. The B&B is very central and convenient for all the facilities and sites in Bowness. Rooms were small but pleasant and well decorated. Overall a pleasant stay and value for money. Convenient position for sightseeing, shopping and entertainment.

“We liked the staff, warm, straightforward, friendly.”

The staff are good and helpful, the food good, the location very useful for attractions and shops etc. We had very useful advice on eating out, which we found to be completely reliable. One drawback was the fact that parking was sometimes difficult, but this did not blight our stay. the place was clean, the beds comfortable, the en suite good. Not luxurious but good value.
