Very enjoyable and comfortable stay”
Richard and Paula were wonderful hosts who gave us lots of tips for sightseeing and eating locally. The room was clean and tidy and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was fabulous. Location enabled us to walk to all local attractions, pubs and restaurants.
Thanks for the great review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay here at Kirkwoods. Kind Regards Richard and Paula
Thank you for a lovely stay”
Richard & Pauline were fantastic hosts and very friendly and gave us some great recomendations of things to do. The breakfast was fantastic and probably the best I've had in a long time. We would stay again.
I recently stayed in Kirkwood guest house for 2 nights with my family. The owner is really friendly and helpful. They were especially helpful with information and suggestions when we were planning our road trip around the lake district. Very genuine and the hospitality that they show is warmth and welcoming.
Warm, Friendly, Cosy”
Extremely pleasant! Richard and Paula are wonderfully warm and helpful. They make the experienceof staying at Kirkwood extremely personal. Great place to stay and relax at. Also ideally located between Windermere and Bowness, making it convenient to walk to either.
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!
Wanna welcome from great couple. Definitely come back again”
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.
Fantastic, friendly guest house!”
We had a wonderful time at the Kirkwood Guest house! It was very walkable into town and the accommodation was superb. We had a lovely four poster bed in a beautiful room. The food was wonderful and Paula and Richard were wonderful hosts. We would definitely stay there again!!
Paula is such a great host. We’ve enjoyed every moment in Lake District. Breakfast was superb. The rooms were really really nice. Walking distance to shops. Definitely would want to visit again.
Beautiful home in a beautiful neighbourhood”
Really enjoyed our stay here! The owners were really friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was great!
Wonderful guesthouse that gave a real "English" experience ”
Loved my room with its beautiful decor! The hosts at this hotel were super friendly and helpful - a great place to stay!
Paula and Richard were very welcoming and made us feel relaxed. Our room was clean and functional and Paula was very flexible in her breakfast choices. A very enjoyable stay.
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.
Perfect in every way”
Great host. Paula and Richard are so friendly. They were willing to go extra mile to make us feel like home. Great breakfast!!! The room is very clean and cozy. I like the atmosphere of the guest house.
Lovely short stay”
We were only there for one night but arrived at midday and were taken straight to room. Very nice and clean room with spotless bathroom and a very comfy bed which was nice after 2 nights in a tent. Hosts were very friendly and helpful with places to go, asking all guests at breakfast if they needed information for their day plans.
A different experience ”
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
Excellent hosts, wonderful stay”
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.
Friendly couple and breakfast was wonderful. Rooms were clean.
Nice place to stay. Host is good.
Friendly host, clean room and good breakfast.
