My partner and I stayed at the Lake House in July for two nights and were incredibly pleased with the service we received at the hotel as well as the location and the quality of our room. The hotel is located at Waterhead, the top point of Lake Windemere and is a short five-ten minute walk from the centre of... More

We were only booked in for one night but wished we had booked in for a longer stay. On arrival the staff were very friendly and our rooms were ready for us. The accommodation was fantastic, the standard of cleanliness and comfort was extremely high. Breakfast was delicious and plenty of choice and nothing was too much trouble. The staff... More

Lake House was an excellent place to stay. Very comfortable. Very friendly staff. Delicious breakfast and great views. It's parent hotel The Regent Hotel nearer Lake Windermere where relations stayed was also excellent and a special mention for Richard who was so helpful. Couldn't fault any of the staff. They went out of their way to help.

Our room on the very top floor had a lovely view of the lake and distant hills. It was clean although a bit dated and the bed was just OK. The breakfast was quite disappointing; luke warm tea, boiled (rather than fried) breakfast with rashers of bacon which looked raw. In all, it was a very average BnB and we... More

We had 2 nights in a Hideaway room which is in the annex at the back of the property. The room was a good size with a big bathroom although there was a small leak from the shower. The grounds were attractive & breakfast in the main building had a reasonable choice (although no green tea!). Staff were all friendly... More

What can I say about this fantastic place. The room was exceptional, clean and welcoming. The staff are very friendly and caring and cater very well for children especially at breakfast time. The food at the sister hotel was also amazing. We would definitely return in the future. Thank you and well done.

Great hotel close to Waterhead Pier. Ample choice and good quality food for breakfast. The hotel does not do evening meals but offers 10% at their sister hotel The Regent which is just on the road below. We had a Hideaway room at the back which didn't have a lake view but was peaceful and quiet. The room would have... More

On arrival we were greeted by Rebecca who was friendly and efficient and promptly checked in three couples and showed us all to our rooms within minutes, even offering to carry our luggage. On the first night Rebecca advised us to go for dinner at the The Regal Hotel down by the Lake where we received 10% discount. Very nice... More
