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...

On arrival we were greeted by a friendly member of staff who explained all about the hotel and showed us to our rooms. The rooms were very clean and beds comfy. The jacuzzi bath was a nice touch and certainly enjoyed after walking round Ambleside. The breakfast in the morning was continental and all fresh and tasted delicious. We can't... More

We were looking for a guesthouse to stay for just one night (not as easy as you might think in the Lake District) and stumbled across Brathay Lodge. Glad we did! The welcome was warm and very friendly, the room was spotless. We had a standard double on the third floor (beware - no lift!) which suited our needs. It... More

Just got back from a 4 night stay at Brathay Lodge and at first I couldn't decide whether to give this B&B an average rating or a poor rating, but based on value for money I had to give a poor rating. I will start with some good points about Brathay Lodge. The room was lovely and big, with great... More

My wife and I and our 7 month old have just returned from a 3 night stay at Brathay Lodge and we had a great time! We originally booked another hotel through booking.com but they messed up the reservation so offered us Brathay instead. I'm so glad we ended up moving here as the lodge was perfect for us. Really...
