Lovely room and perfectly situated in Ambleside with ample free parking. Friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend. Free wifi and jacuzzi in room although quite noisy.

We stayed for 2 nights our 3rd visit always a warm welcome greeting and shown to our room. This time we took our little dog in one of the dog friendly rooms. Perfect size with jacuzzi bath brilliant after a long walk. Breakfast was amazing everything we needed. Ambleside very picturesque and would recommend Brathay Lodge.

After speaking to the very helpful man on reception we found ourselves in a lovely warm dry room. The place was really nice, the guy who booked us in was really... More

It was very spacious and had a large en suite with a spa bath. Very generous buffet breakfast although it would have been nice to have a cooked... More
