Stayed here for 2 nights with my partner. Had a great time the guest house was lovely and homely. Karen the owner was a friendly couldn't do enough for you kind of person. The room and bed were lovely and comfortable. Breakfast was awesome especially the Cumberland sausage which went down a treat. Would defiantly recommend and defiantly stay again....

We stayed at Elim Lodge at the end of our Dales Way walk. Owner Karen was pleasant and helpful. Our £80 ensuite room was large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice. Elim Lodge has the feel of a traditional, no-nonsense guest house and, as such, was fine for our purposes.

This was my first visit to England and my first to the Lake District. Stayed at elim lodge in bowness for the night before moving on up into Scotland. Nice room and a good breakfast, it was nice and peaceful and we had a good nights sleep. Only problem was that the wifi kept going off.

For me this b&b was distinguished mainly by the unfriendliness of the landlady.She made me feel like an unwelcome guest in her house. She has rules and is brusque to the point of rudeness if you transgress. But my room was fine; large and tidy while the ensuite was not so good. Breakfast is pretty meagre compared to other places...

I booked this for the three of us for our final night after walking the delightful Dales Way. This was our worst B&B en route. The couple who run the place are clearly tired of what they are doing. They were unhelpful and unfriendly - not a single smile! The accommodation Room 6 was small and tacky - peace and...

Very friendly and peaceful. Handy for the buses up the hill, the cinema and shops. Breakfast not huge but you don't want a belly buster that'll make you feel bloated all day either. I've lost count of how many times we've stayed in Bowness but this was our first time at Elim Lodge. We find Bowness far too busy in...
