Very good location, with parking. Don't be put off by proximity to main road, traffic not a problem, very quiet stay. Room was a good size with large bathroom, shower and excellent jaccuzi bath. Good buffet continental breakfast catering for all tastes, decent bread for toasting, hard boiled eggs, cold meats etc - and plenty of space for leisurely consumption.... More

A hair drier was provided and the bathroom featured a good shower and a jacuzzi bath. The continental breakfast is very good and a wide selection of cereals is... More

I stayed at Brathay Lodge whilst on business last week and would definitely recommend to others .The rooms are spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. I received a warm welcome, despite being an hour later than expected due to heavy traffic. The choice at Breakfast was great with plenty of freshly cooked ham & salmon and lots of juices,... More

Good location for a stroll into Ambleside. Checked in early, lots of parking, staff very friendly. Room (at very top of hotel) was large family room, nice view overlooking the mini-golf course. Good clean, basic, room. However...... 1] We were informed at check-in that the staff leave in the evening (on this day it was 6pm), and if guests have... More

We booked this the day before we were due to arrive as a last minute getaway with the kids and had a good feeling about it when I booked over the phone and the guy was really friendly and helpful. The lodge is in a great location with a mini golf course (pitch and put) opposite, shops and restaurants just... More

We chose Brathay Lodge as the reviews seemed good and it was a good price and on arrival it didn't disappoint. Guest parking was ample and located at the side of the building. The staff were very friendly and our room was clean and had a beautiful view (with added jacuzzi bath which was a nice surprise). The hotel front... More

My family with 2 young teenagers stayed here for 3 nights. While the staff are friendly & efficient there is no warmth in their manner. The accommodation is functional & adequate & clean, although the walls are very thin - we could hear our neighbours talking & watching TV even though they were not being loud! The beds are old...
