'Sorry we had to dash off before breakfast. However, really enjoyed our stay. Well presented clean room. Very comforttable bed. A little attention to detail needed..no light shades on ceiling lights!! Great location for shops cafes restaurants lake and àll attractions. Would definately stay again. Down side..main road so unavoidable noise. Might be an idea to have room fans as it was very hot so needed the windows open a room fan would help'

Good location, some issues though :(
3 stars 3

'The location of this accommodation was perfect however we did have a few issues (sorry). We were in room 5 which was very dated in comparison to the pics advertised online and the pressure on the shower was not very good at all - it was difficult to use. We also asked for some clean towels on the Saturday however as the staff were busy - our request was forgotten. That said - the food was fabulous and staff very friendly. Just some feedback really as if you are unaware of issues it is impossible to rectify them. Thanks again :)'

'Had an excellent long weekend staying at Monties Guesthouse in the superior room. Everything was perfect for our needs and any issues were sorted very quickly. Excellent location for walks and right in the centre of Bowness so very handy for going out for dinner and lunch. The cafe that served breakfast was great and the food was delicious! The staff were also very polite and friendly. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking to stay in Bowness-on-Windermere.'

'Positive- staff very pleasant and helpful, central, check in v easy,nice breakfast Negative- we stayed in room 4 which was pictured once & is more complimentary than the room itself. Clearly not had the same refurb as the rooms in other pics. Lots of small things not so good - water collected behind the loo,shower height adjuster broken, damage to wall under windows,tv small and above the wardrobe etc'

Hard for the taxi driver

'Monties was a pleasant stay but was on a corner where it was difficult for the taxi to pick us off and drop us off. If you are a mature traveler beware of the stairs! A room on the lower stairs is best. On the plus side it is very central.'

'The room was nice, but having a separate bathroom was a little in convenient at times. Breakfast was lovely. Only faults no ventilation in the bathroom, nothing to tell us who to contact in an emergency, and the road outside took some getting used to. All in all it felt like we were minding a friends house as there was no on on site all the time.'

'hank you for the review. You were aware at time of booking with third party website the room had a separate \"private\" bathroom and again when we confirmed your reservation, along with contact details in case of emergency you are provided with the owners mobile number. there are staff on duty in the café until 6pm each day and staff that also live on-site. the bathroom window does open but it would appear it may require some attention.'

The room was very clean, fresh towels each day and the breakfast was brilliant with lots to choose from. The staff were friendly and not overbearing. Happy to leave you to enjoy your stay but very helpful when needed. Would definitely recommend Monties to others and will be going back again.'

The rooms were beautiful, comfy, warm and CLEAN! The breakfast was lovely .we can\'t thank you enough. We will definitely be back'
