The lady who greeted us (Karen?) was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice and clean, and the bed was comfy. However, we were at the very top of the building, about 5 flights of stairs, and I wondered how we would manage if there was a fire. :( Im sure there are better b&b's who include a... More

We made a very late booking based on a good weather forecast, so choice of places to stay were limited. The Brathay Lodge turned out to be fine. We got a very large double room on the first floor at the front complete with 4 poster bed. The room was very clean and tidy. The decor was not particularly to... More

Having read all the good reviews on line we booked a family room . I was so disappointed on arrival, but thankfully only here for one night. The room was so dark, the lighting was inadequate and decor very dated. It was exceptionally clean, I'll give them that but not a room you'd want to stay in for long it... More

We've stayed at Brathay Lodge several times now so thought it was about time we reviewed it! An excellent place to stay being ideally situated for Lake District walks, many of which can be done directly from the premises without a car journey beforehand. The breakfasts really set you up for a days walking - don't miss out on the... More

Great location in centre of Ambleside - bonus to have private parking. Friendly staff. Got good online offer price. Comfortable rooms with spa baths - just right after a days walking. Continental breakfast - not for everyone but if you don't bother about a 'fry up' this is great. Lots of choice and as much as you want. Buffet style.... More

We booked Brathay Lodge at short notice so we could visit my sister whilst she was staying elsewhere in Ambleside. For 2 x adults the price was £83 for a double room with en suit facilities with jacuzzi bath. There is plenty of parking and a Continental breakfast was included with plenty of everything to meet the biggest appetite. The... More

We stayed for one night when the hotel was relatively quiet. Our dog friendly room was separate from the main hotel, with French door access directly from the car park. The room was modern, spacious and had great heating on a cold winter night. Bed very comfortable, but some new firm pillows would make a good nights sleep even better.... More
