Centrally located and comfortable B&B. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficicient, and there was a very good choice available for breakfast, with plenty of coffee.We stayed in room 2, which was quiet as it's at the back and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was spacious with a good shower.

We stayed at Lakes Lodge for 6 nights, booked on the recommendation of Tripadvisor and Trail Magazine. The rate was very competitive and booking direct gave us a free bottle of wine. We found our room (9) to be clean and comfortable. The kingsize bed was super and we slept really well throughout our stay. Our room looked out onto... More

Our 2nd visit. Really comfy bed in Rm 2. View is obscured by the fire escape which is a shame but unavoidable. Very short walk into the town where there is plenty of choice for eating out. Good standard all round and breakfast is plentiful with a good variety, cooked buffet, cereals, croissants, toast, fruit, yoghurt etc and all self... More

Stayed here for 2 nights...booked directly with the lodge and you get a bottle of wine if you do this. On a one way street so you might end up going around the block to get there and in spite of the name unfortunately there are no views of Lake Windermere from here as far as I could see. The... More

We've stayed here before, and are already looking forward to the next time. Location is excellent, within a five minute walk you have a huge choice of shops, pubs and restaurants. If you like the local walks, as we do, you can leave your car in the car park during your stay and set off from Lakes Lodge on foot... More
