            We stayed at the Burnside for one night for our mini honeymoon and it was beautiful the service was great, the rooms clean and breakfast was amazing, we can't wait to go back

          • Couple
            10.0

            Second time at this hotel. Rooms very clean. Staff very helpful.

            Didn`t like the room we were given, but receptionist very quickly arranged another room.

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            Location was very good, hotel clean and friendly

            The original room we were put in had an extremely uncomfortable bed but we were moved to a different room

          • Family with children
            7.0

            The location was superb; just a short walk to the shops and Windermere lake. The gym they have, albeit small, is quite nice. My kids loved the swimming pool. The breakfast which was included in the booking was nice as well...

            I think it is a bit pricy for the location and the services it provides.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Only a short walk to lake and shops. Ate in the bistro and food was good. Breakfast also good and good choice.

            Because it is so near the pubs and restaurants in the town it is a bit quiet in the evening.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            300 yards to main resort ,nice outlook,friendly staff

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Very close proximity to the centre of Bowness on Windermere, but still quiet in its own grounds.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Clean room great breakfast.

            Car park full of pot holes receptionoist was not particularly welcoming - we regularly stay in hotels and every where else we have always been informed of the time of breakfast and the location of the restaurant - we were not informed of this at the Burnside.

          • Couple
            9.6

            really enjoied the friendly atmosphere ,breakfast and the country club

            would like to be able to check in a little earlier

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            The room was comfortable and had a good view of Lake Windermere

            Being told at breakfast by the waitress that it was "a hassel" to organise an espresso coffee. Insufficient tea/coffee in the room + no biscuits provided, breakfast was adequate but no better - on the second day you had to fish for a baked bean in the vat of sauce (and we were first down to breakfast so there was no excuse). On the first evening we were told we could get food in the sports bar - not the case - unless you count a burned pizza prepared by someone who did not realise that pizzas normally included cheese as a topping as standard - in fairness we were not charged for this, but when I complained at reception that the member of staff involved clearly had not had sufficient training to be preparing food for the public, I was told that the manager would be informed of my comments - as such I expected to hear from them, but did not. Not what I would expect from a £150+ per night hotel - very disappointed.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            staff were very helpful and nothing you asked them was too much trouble.food and service were superb.will definitely go back again

          • Couple
            5.0

            Bed was comfy and only took 5 mins to walk into Bowness. Breakfast was pretty good.

            Impersonal hotel, spa looked tired. No car parking available due to spaces for "Gold Members" - would advise that you become one at £10 to get 10% discount and an ability to park your car. Felt the room rate was too high for a very standard experience

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The hotel was very comfortable and our stay was enjoyable. Entertainment was disappointing as it was only on for one of the nights of our stay. Meals were good although breakfast was a bit haphazard at times especially at the weekend when staff seemed to be running about in circles. We had to wait for plates, eggs, etc when supplies had run out. All in all it was a very plesant experience and we will probably go back to the Burnside again.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            When booking the family room I expected just an extra bed, oh no a 2nd bedroom for our daughter. A fantastic location very comfortable and very clean. Staff excellent, very attentive at breakfast. Even gave every child an easter egg on Easter Sunday. Superb Hotel will definately return.

            The only minor problem we did encounter was a lack of water pressure in the bathroom on our first morning. This was obviously due to the bedroom being at the end of the hotel on the top floor, everyone got the water before us! It take a while for me to shower! But Hubby managed a few moments later with no problems.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Hotel was centrally located for Bowness by Windermere - good location for walking to restaurants and pubs as wells as access to the lake. Room was nicely decorated and modern. Had all of the conveniences expected.

            Did not use the pool facilities as they were quite small so therefore more suitable for family with small children, rather than couple seeking more peaceful swim.
