A great place. Great service. Fantastic breakfast. Brilliant location. Great value for money. Allowed us to leave our bikes in secure area. Also, had a dining area specifically for guests with dogs. We try to book a room here every time we visit the lakes. Can't fault it.

Booked this hotel via groupon, so was a bargain price. Rooms were very clean & spacious. We had a fantastic breakfast. It is in a ideal position to explore the Lakes. Plenty of places to eat and drink on the door step.

So check in was very good and efficient. As we walked into the room (3) we were overall impressed, nice and clean.. The bedroom itself a little dated but nicely done and the bathroom lovely and modern but a little compact. However, after our first night staying in the room.. We found some problems.. Windows not double glazed and as... More

My wife & I stayed late October 14 for 3 nights & had a very good time. The Lamplighter is in a very good location, close to the railway station & the shops & bars of Windermere. The car park was always busy while we were there, although we only had to park on the road for the first night,... More

Just had a really lovely meal in the restaurant. Having a short break in Windermere and found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. Was not disappointed. Booked a table in the restaurant and ordered a very nice bottle of wine to have with our meal. From arriving the service was very welcoming and friendly with good recommendations. Food was of a very... More

We had a meal here on our one night in Windermere due to a recommendation in our travel guide and on tripadvisor, It was truly lovely! The food was beautiful and very delicious! The décor could be updated but we barely noticed it as we loved our food so much! This is a must when you are visiting Windermere!

The staff were very Welcoming . The rooms were very big and clean and en suite was very big. Prior to coming to the Lamplighter, I read a review from a Gentleman , saying that the bathroom had no frosted glass people could see from the street whilst he was using his en suite. My question to that Guest would... More

Stayed on the 1st of October for my 25th birthday. Was worried that, although it states 'pet friendly', we'd be treated like nuisances for bringing our large 7 month old Newfoundland pup. This couldn't have been further from the truth as we were set up in the lounge area for both dinner and breakfast so that he could sit with... More

We booked this hotel at short notice as it was near our daughter and family, and they allowed us to bring our dogs. It is well located in Windermere near the station and shops and restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable, and had an enormous bathroom! The staff were welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. Breakfast was good with... More

This is the 2nd time my Husband and I have stayed here and again we had a lovely stay. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and the bathrooms are newly refurbished. The best thing about this hotel is its location it is perfect for the centre of town and only a minutes walk away from the best restaurants. The breakfast... More
