Stayed one night en-route back north . Good standard of hotel in a good location. Car parking is on-site which is a bonus in Ambleside. The room was large and very clean, enjoyed the spa bath. Breakfast is a buffet tasty and plentiful .A nice stay .

My wife and I stopped here for 1 night on the 13/09/14. It was booked the same day. We have been coming to Windermere for 8 years visiting twice a year, and compared to other four star B&B'S this was the worst we have stayed in!! The lodge's interior is basic, characterless, the room was ok & clean but was... More

We spent two nights at Brathay Lodge over the weekend and had a pleasant stay. The location is definitely what you're paying for here with the centre of Ambleside being less than a five minutes walk away, the other plus point is there is a large car park around the side of the B&B where you can leave your car...

A really nice place in a busy Lake District town; perfect for exploring the southern lakes. As others have already said, the staff were helpful far beyond what we've encountered elsewhere even to the extent that the manager(?) helped us to book a place to stay on the night after we left Ambleside. There is no cooked breakfast but the... More

Recently had a nights stay at the Brathay Lodge. Received a warm welcome and they were kind enough to allow us to check in earlier than was stated on the booking. The room was lovely with a 4 poster bed, jacuzzi spa bath and the view was amazing. Location was ideal, two minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside and... More

The location of this hotel is perfect. The breakfast is good too. I had a pleasant 2 nights stay here. The lake is right in front, you can walk down the lush green meadows along with grazing mountain goats. The hotel is little off the main road which makes is secluded and private. There is fire pace outside where you... More

I recently spent 2 nights here with my girlfriend. The central location meant we were all of a minutes walk from the centre of town and just 10 minutes from the lake. The Guest House itself was fantastic. Very clean, friendly staff and excellent facilities... We were particularly delighted with the surprise of a Jacuzzi Spa Bath! We will definitley... More
