I recently stayed here on the eve of my wedding day along with my bridesmaids. On first contact with the B&B I asked if I would be able to have an extra late checkout, and for a little extra charge was no problem at all, which meant we could relax and get ready in our own time.

We stayed here 6 nights in June/July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is well positioned and very close to the shops and restaurants in Ambleside and just a short 15 min walk to the lake. All the staff were lovely and were more than helpful and made us feel welcome. The breakfast was continental buffet and was just... More

We stayed here, myself, my wife and our 6 and 12 year old sons for the early Easter Bank Holiday weekend. The hotel is positioned just on the south edge of the town centre about 3-5mins from the retail and eating out centre of Ambleside. It's across the road from a small park, where you can play boule, bowls, mini... More

We were in Ambleside for 3 nights and had booked Brathay Lodge after reading reviews in TripAdvisor. The check in process was fast and the room allotted to us was on the ground floor of the lodge. The room size was pretty decent with an old world charm and the renovations included a Jacuzzi in the bathroom. Breakfast buffet consisted... More

The rooms were really comfortable and cosy in pleasant bright decor, and the bathrooms spacious with spotlessly clean and well maintained fittings & fixtures. We all really enjoyed breakfast in...

A great place to stay, centrally positioned for a visit to The Lakes. Comfortable bed, great breakfast would certainly visit again. Many really good places to eat locally, something for everyones taste. Having their own car park was a big bonus too.

Loved our stay here over the May Bank holiday.

We had a triple room which had a partition for three friends which was perfect. ( great for a family with one child). The beds... More
