Spent 3 nights here recently and very much enjoyed the experience. Location is ideal, very close to center of town and only a couple of minutes walk to the shops/pubs/restaurants. Parking in Ambleside is problematic, so it's fantastic to be able to dump the car in their great big (free) car park on arrival and forget about it for the... More

Stayed here as a family of four for one night. The family room was huge and cleverly partitioned off. the jacuzzi bath was great fun and a real treat after hiking all day. Location was spot on and parking on site a bonus. The continental breakfast was a cut above the usual - good quality fresh produce and loads of... More

We stayed here on a mountain biking weekend and found the staff very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the 3 person room on the top floor, clean, nicely decorated with everything you need. A great place to 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!!

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
