Stayed at Ambleside a couple of times, this hotel was great and in a perfect location. Great buffet breakfast, lovely rooms and comfy bed. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. The car park was small but we got parked ok on both days.

Stayed here for only 1 night but we will definitely be back. Gorgeous surroundings, beautiful room and very well presented. We brought our dog and they were very welcoming of her. Katy was a brilliant hostess and a real credit to the company. We will definitely be back 😀

Recently stayed here when we visited Ambleside again, hotel is well situated and only a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Ambleside. Hotel and rooms are very well decorated, and the ice machine in the hall on our floor was a nice touch for a ice cool drink on those hot days, and having a variety of dvds... More

We visited Lakes Lodge for two nights and it was lovely. Our room had a separate side entrance to the main building and was nicely decorated and very comfortable inside. Everywhere was clean and looked very recently fitted so was in great condition. I would definitely stay here again as the location was so central and the breakfasts (all you... More

I treated my husband to a break here for his birthday, and was so happy with my choice! We received an exceptional, warm welcome from front-of-house colleague Cath (featured on the website video), who went above and beyond throughout our trip to make us feel welcome and thoroughly spoilt (e.g. Helping me to arrange breakfast in bed on my husband's...

Stayed here with a group of friends for a weekend reunion, The service was really good and the staff very helpful. We had 3 twin rooms and they were better than expected - good size beds, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good and if you're planning an active day, "filling up your tank" in the morning is easily achieved!... More
