We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. The rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed. Hotel is well located with easy walks into town and the ferry. Lovely breakfast with helpful and cheerful staff. Excellent stay.

The bedroom was spotless and the decor was fabulous. Such a comfortable bed. The breakfasts were stunning, everything you could wish for and more.... More

As soon as you arrive you are welcomed by the most friendliest staff as well as being polite and professional. This is our 2nd visit and we were remembered by one of the staff. Room 10 is where we stayed and has a great view, spacious and everything you need for a homely stay. Breakfast is buffet style but if... More

This is centrally located with very friendly staff. They have 4 rooms reserved for dog owners, the remainder don't allow dogs. Excellent breakfast with a space where you can eat with your dog so no need to have to leave the dog in the room (so avoiding unnecessary destruction). advice on what to see, local taxis and bus times willingly...

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Lakes Lodge and are already booking our return. The hotel is in an excellent location in Ambleside. The rooms are immaculate, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The staff are wonderful and cannot do enough it help you. The best thing about this hotel is the attention to detail, having an ice... More

Excellent value for money and exceeded expectations. Everything was perfect; lovely friendly welcome, comfortable, clean and spacious room, great breakfast and efficient staff. Ice machine and buckets, DVD player and a vast selection of DVD's were great extras. Free bottle of wine for booking direct (no dearer than booking agencies). Will definitely return.

My girlfriend and I spent just the one night at Lakes Lodge, Ambleside and were thoroughly satisfied with everything about it!! We had had to book into the Lodge at very short notice due to an atrocious experience at another Windermere 'hotel' ( I use the word hotel lightly!!! ). From the first moment we walked into the lodge we... More

Would highly recommend, especially if you're travelling with a pet and don't want to compromise on the standards you would normally expect from a b & b. This was our second visit to lakes lodge with our fox terrier and on both occasions we stayed in one of the superior dog friendly rooms. These rooms are in the basement of... More
