Stayed 3 nights, staff very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast delicious, room spotless and everything I needed, very impressed with hairdryer did not need to bring my own! Perfect base for exploring the lakes with lots of walks nearby. Already saving for my next stay and would definitely recommend to friends.

Had a quiet overnight stay to wind down from busy lives, staff were very friendly and out going, room was spotless and equiped with everything needed for a short stay, buffet breakfast was basic but satisfying. Location is close enough for a lesurely stroll to the lake side and to the shops in the village. Parking is minimal, had an... More

We stayed here in July and enjoyed our stay. Had a nice room on top floor with fab views out to the hills over the back, although the room only had a shower and we needed a bath, but we coped. The staff were very friendly and like the DVD library on offer as we were in early as we... More

Had a quiet stay for two nights at lakes lodge, rooms very clean & comfy, great location & with car park. Breakfast was very nice & quiet, buffet style & delicious. Definitely go back. Also there is a bus stop nearby so if you want a nice ride into Bowness it's ideal & very reasonably priced.

The parking was 'neat' when we arrived, but where isn't. No charge either. Then we had a really friendly welcome at reception. Our bedroom was big, spotless and comfortable. A DVD player is provided with a complimentary disc library at reception, although we didn't use it. There was also free WiFi. The position is good. It was a really short... More

We stayed for one night over August Bank Holiday weekend, and were certainly not disappointed by Lakes Lodge. The hotel/b&b was a stones throw away from numerous bars , restaurants and shops. There is also a car park, which is a great added extra, but it is tight with small spaces. Therefore if you have anything bigger than a small... More

We stayed for two nights in mid August and were very satisfied with nearly every aspect of this charming hotel. It is located within easy walking distance of Waterhead Pier and numerous pubs, shops and restaurants throughout Ambleside. The staff, two delightful ladies, were incredibly helpful and friendly and the breakfast was buffet-style and very tasty. PROS: - Charming -... More

Perfect location for walking into Ambleside, bed was super comfy (more than my one at home and that's saying something!) room was a good size, lovely and clean and a good sized bathroom. DVD player was also handy having a little one with us. Breakfast was good and staff all very helpful.

Just got back from three days at Lakes Lodge which was recommended to us by friends who had stayed there several times. We are dog owners so look for places that accommodate but we also like decent places to stay and quite often the two do not go together however Lakes Lodge has worked around this by having several dog...
