            Kirkwood Guest House: A Home Away From Home in Windermere Lake District”

            My husband (a senior citizen) and I stayed in Kirkwood Guest House, Prince's Road, Windermere City Center, Windermere, UK during 14 - 16 June 2018. We were visiting from Singapore. The Guest House is situated approximately midway between Windermere Railway Station and Windermere Lake (Bowness). The location of the Guest House is ideal for exploring the place by walking. Paula and Richard - our hosts accommodated us in a Double Room with Four Poster Bed with a nice view of the serene neighbourhood. Both of them were friendly, polite, hospitable, caring, and helpful. The complimentary, sumptuous breakfast had a wide choice and it was always served with a smile. There are a lot of eateries and souvenir shops nearby and all of them are within the walking distance. On the date of our departure, it was drizzling and the weather was not so favourable, so Paula sensed our uneasiness and she arranged a taxi for us to go to the Railway Station at a nominal price. That was a great parting gift!

            Though needa a walk around 15 Mins from Windermere station, it’s a lovely walk. The place is just next to Queens Drive. Easy to find. We are group of three with 2 huge luggages. Richard was soo kind to help us taking the cases up to 3 rd floor. Very decent and clean room. Breakfast has several choices and they all are amazing. The host is very informative and guide us around with the given map. Definitely will come back again and recommend to my friends.

            Richard and Paula were such warm hosts, who not only provided a lovely room and breakfast, and good suggestions on what to do in the Lake District with brochures etc. What touched us was their willingness to go the extra mile to help us with little things like warm ginger tea to settle an upset tummy and fixing a shoe with some shoe glue. Way beyond what you'd expect to get in a B&B. We chose this property based on comments from other visitors' glowing praises about their hospitality and we were pleased to find that these were true. Very kind and genuine, caring hosts.

            It is a guest house and not a hotel. But for sure, the stay was an experience in itself. Really helpful staff who guide us all the time. Super clean and has everything that you can ask for. My daughter was happy to play Uno and Scrabble which was available in the lounge. Books to read. And a good English breakfast. Only thing to note- they do not allow more than 2 guests in a room, so for my daughter had to take an extra room. Overall a nice experience

            Fabulous English breakfast, quiet location yet near food and convenience shops, great advice from hosts on walks and where to dine

            Most delightful short vacation to Windermere and stay at Kirkwood. Location is just 15 minutes casual walk from train station. Good for a quiet stay. Hop on hop off bus stop is just 5 minutes walk away. The launderette is at Main Street again, within easy access. Paula and Richard gave great advice on where to trek around or near the lakes, or touring Ambleside, Grasmere, and Keswick. We stayed at a room at the 1st floor, and the bathroom was small. The room was comfortable, with a desk where we could conveniently use our notebook and the wireless internet. Tea, coffee, kettle, hair dryer were provided in the room. Shower cubicle was a bit slippery so would need a little care. Bathroom was small, and more hangers for towels etc would be useful. Breakfast starts at 8.30am, but as we depart early, Paula and Richard took the trouble to prepare early breakfast and even packed breakfast for one of us. Although our family of 4's stay was just 2 nights/3 days, we had a memorable time as guests at Kirkwood.

            Great hosts, great location, great breakfast.

            From our arrival until leaving our hosts were excellent. The owners obviously love what they do and are making a great success of it in the process. The breakfast is plentiful and at a fantastic standard. The guest house is olde worldy which is just what we wanted for an authentic Lakes stay. The position could not be better, in a quiet spot but very central to Windermere & Bowness. Would have no hesitation in staying again or recommending to friends/family.
