I cannot emphasise enough how truly fabulous this place is. We have stayed four times and we will be going back again before the year is out. Cath and the team go above and beyond, at every opportunity, to ensure you have the most enjoyable stay. The rooms are just fantastic, we always stay in the superior rooms as some... More

Great location and Cath, Jake and the gang couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. We were on a cycling break and they provided everything required for our stay. The rooms are great with fantastic views and the breakfast superb. Highly recommended.

We have just arrived home from the loveliest B&B in Ambleside, beautiful setting & very friendly staff. Lakes Lodge made us very welcome and we will definitely be visiting again. Me & my partner stayed with our 1year old son, Lakes Lodge accommodated our every need. The B&B is right in the middle of Ambleside village with great bus links... More

Stayed here recently for a mini break, nice B&B in a great location for exploring Ambleside and the surrounding areas. Our bedroom looked nice and had a 4 poster bed and a little seating area, although the bed looked nice it wasnt comfy. Without wanting to sound like Goldilocks it was very, very hard so didnt provide a great sleep.... More

We stayed here in march for 2 nights with our pug puppy and absolutely loved this place! We had a basement room because we had the dog and we expected it to be just basic but it was absolutely stunning, one of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in! Felt so luxurious for a room that allowed dogs! They even... More

Great location, has private parking, nice room, good breakfast. On a main road but it didn't have much traffic late on so not a problem. Only reason didn't give 5 stars is because there was a few black hairs (not ours!) in the shower & there was noise from room above (taps I think) which disturbed us a little on... More

We have stayed here on several occasions and wouldn't really consider anywhere else in Ambleside. Great location - only a few minutes away from shops, restaurants and other services; friendly and helpful staff; free car parking!

This is the second time we've been to the Lakes Lodge and it didn't disappoint. The staff are really well trained and a pleasure to deal with. We found the staff go out of their way to make sure guests are happy and have everything they need. The breakfasts are amazing, it is a buffet style affair so you can... More

The location is ideal for Ambleside centre. Friendly staff. Spacious room. On site parking is a big bonus. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice, but buffet style, so not ideal. Overall, however, excellent value for money and would definitely return.
