Just returned after one night stay. Immaculately clean, lovely room, super breakfast, great location just 100m to nearest of many restaurants. Fully recommend this friendly small hotel. Had no trouble parking and so handy for lots of places in the lakes.

Having been given this booking as a Christmas present from my mother we wasn't disappointed. The room we was given was given was very nice and well worth the extra that we had to pay because we have a dog. The only downside if there was one was having to go outside the hotel to go round the front for... More

It had 2 Double beds, was huge, extremely clean and tastefully decorated and furnished. The en suite bathroom was... More

Booked two nights away for a birthday break with my other half and needed somewhere pet friendly so after searching about we finally settled on this place. We arrived late so were given the key code so we could collect our key and let ourselves in. The separate entrance and quarters for people with dogs was a novel idea and... More

At the end of our 5 day break in Keswick we decided to have one more night in the lakes and booked the lakes lodge. I got a good price on booking.com and booked a superior room. We arrived earlier than check in time and the hotel kindly let us store our bags prior to a 2 pm check in.... More

Visited here recently. On arrival we had to press a bell for reception staff to check us in we waited around 10-15 minutes for this. We requested a double room on booking however was put into a twin room. The staff themselves was very friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable. The location is excellent and a short walk...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Apologies for the mix up with the room and that you had to wait for someone to come when you rang the bell, it is very unusual for guests to have to wait for assistance, the girls are usually extremely prompt at answering, but, we hope that this didn't put...

Booked this hotel through Booking.com. It was last minute as originally we were booked into a hotel in Llanberis to walk Snowdon, but bad weather changed our plans. We were not disappointed at all. I emailed the Hotel as we like a top floor room. They replied with an offer and explanation of 3 rooms for us to pick from.... More
