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.

Stayed here for two nights on our way up to Scotland and then again for two nights on the way back. We were upgraded on our return to an excellent room with its own entrance and given a complimentary bottle of wine which was great. However our first room although a little smaller was also lovely. Both rooms were spotlessly... More

Breakfast was good, not great, but good! Only a couple of gripes:- no view from the window in the room (it was a basement room) £10... More

We really loved our stay at this place. We would definitely stay here again next time we come to Ambleside. What a lovely welcome from the staff. Very helpful and friendly. The room was clean, spacious and so comfy. The bed was lovely, got a great nights sleep. Great location too.

Lakes Lodge... What can I say! We were really impressed upon arrival. The building and reception are fabulously decorated and presented. The car park is good but on quite the hill so just be prepared for that. We stayed on the top floor. Lovely room and arguably the best view in the building via a beautiful bay window. The bathroom...

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.
