Only stayed one night but received a very warm welcome, the room was not expensive but was spacious and lovely, the breakfast was excellent. DVDs are provided for guests use FOC. The property also has car parking which is unusual for one so close to the town centre.

UWe had a Comfortable , tastefully decorated room with all the facilities we needed. Breakfast was fine and the rooms were certainly warm enough. Our room was at the back on the second floor. No lift but one expects to be walking in the Lakes. A mirror next to a power socket for the hair drier would have been nice,...

Im not sure what the rooms are like in the main building but these rooms are really lovely, modern and absolutely perfect! Ideally located for to get around ambleside easily....

We've stayed here a few times before over the years but have chosen other places recently as the Lakes Lodge has been more expensive. We got a good deal just after New Year so it was worth returning. We were met by a friendly staff member and given our key for later as we were going on a walk. We...

Very clean with contemporary decorated bedroom (room 7). Good breakfast. Staff were very helpful. Good location near the center of Ambleside. Packed lunch was not good value at £7.50. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Recently got back from a weekend at staying at the lakes lodge... rooms lovely and spacious, beds very comfortable could have stayed in bed all day.... a little let down by breakfast would have liked more of a continental choice and more of a fresh cooked rather than cooked and put on hot plates... however this would not stop me...

Great rooms, with lashings of hot water, comfy beds. Breakfast is great with everything you could want to set you up for the day. Self service so you can choose as much or as little as you want. For an old house with sash Windows it is unbelievably warm and cosy.

We have stayed here twice before and have always enjoyed our stay, the location could not be better and the staff are always very friendly. We booked direct with the hotel even though booking.com was a few quid cheaper because the hotel promised 10% discount and a bottle of Procecco. When we arrived they said the discount had already been...
