I stayed at Lake House for 4 nights with my parents-in-law and husband. We stayed in the Hideaway rooms which are sited at the rear of the hotel and which have direct access to each room. The Hideaway rooms all have a large flat screen TV with seating. The decor was contemporary in neutral shades. The rooms were well serviced... More

First a minor complaint - beware the main photo as not all rooms are in the picturesque building shown. However, our room was very comfortable, the bathroom had underfloor heating, umbrellas were provided for use, the view was ok, the breakfasts were superb and the location was ideal - close to Windermere & Ambleside and lake cruises leave from almost...

Loved our time at the Lakehouse. Bedroom was comfy and modern, perfect for chilling out in. Location was amazing, 10 minute drive from windermere and not far away from other great Lake District towns. The breakfast was really delicious and fills you up for a day of walking. We also really enjoyed the DVD collection and watched 2 films, one... More

The room was wonderful and very comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts and the staff honestly could not have been more lovely or more helpful.

Hotel is in a great location. You can walk to Lake and catch ferries to Wray Castle etc. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice. Multiple choice on DVD's for room at no extra cost. Drive is quite steep...but thats the Lake District for you and no problem.

A beautiful hotel overlooking Lake Windermere at Lakeside, on the outskirts of Ambleside. We booked a one-night break and wished we could have stayed all week. Our superior, four poster, lake view room looked across the lake and mountains beyond – and with the bonus of incredible sunshine, we could not have wished for more. The grounds of the hotel...

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay at the Lake House in March. We stayed in room 1 on the ground floor which was very spacious (I think it's a wheelchair friendly room) with partial views of the lake. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and were well looked after all weekend by lovely staff. Breakfast was great, exactly... More
