Well, this is the first hotel in a while that has had this effect on us. Pretty much everything about our stay at the Lakes Lodge was of a high standard. We will not hesitate to stay there again. The hotel is very well positioned, a mere few minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside, with ample parking for guests.... More

I stayed here recently for a sailing weekend. It's in a good spot, and is clean and modern inside. We were very well looked after indeed, and I would definitely stay again. We had a minor issue with our booking, which wasn't really anybody at the Lodge's fault, but my complaint was answered very quickly and professionally - very impressed.

We stayed here for one night on our first tour of the lakes. The hotel room (number 15-hillside) was gorgeous with lots of space and everything we needed. Location was ideal with a 5 minute walk to the town centre where we ate and just 10mins in the opposite direction to the lake. Bed was extremely comfortable and breakfast was... More
