We stayed here with our little dog for a treat one rainy January night. The main reason we chose this place was because the restaurant had good reviews and the hotel accepts dogs. The room itself (no 11), was right at the top of the building but it was worth the climb as it was very spacious with the biggest... More

We stayed in a Premier Room at the front of the building (Room 2) and could not fault it. It was spacious with a Super King size bed. The evening meal was excellent and we were given a complimentary glass of champagne as it was our 45th Wedding Anniversary. The breakfast was superb. All the staff were pleasant and attentive....

We have just had another 3 night stay for New Year at The Lamplighter Dining Rooms in Windermere. We cannot fault this place. The room was comfortable & the Manager James & his staff (Michael,Lesley, Sue,Geoff, & Jacob) were extremely professional & friendly. We dined here on New Year's Day & once again the food was amazing. Our compliments go... More

First impressions when we arrived was that it looked a lovely little hotel and very polite staff when we checked in. The room and ensuite was nice and spacious and very clean! Tv, free wifi, hairdryer, tea and a coffee machine. It was warm enough for us but we noticed in the cupboard/wardrobe there was an extra blanket, extra pillows... More

What a lovely place to visit. Very relaxing, comfortable and well positioned for exploring the surrounding area. The food is fantastic! I highly recommend a stop off here or a stay. The facilities are excellent and the staff are very attentive.

This is really a top quality restaurant with a few rooms for accommodation added. The reception area is nondescript and the bedrooms we had could do with improvement. But, the food made up for this. It was of an excellent standard and, the staff were also all very good. Would be happy to return.

After spending the last 2 nights in the lamplighter i feel it's only right to leave the lamp definitely requires re lighting review they so rightly deserve. I'll try to highlight the issues as they happened. Parking is a big issue as there's less than half the spaces for the amount of rooms available plus add to that the restaurant... More

Great little B&B with superb freshly cooked food and friendly staff. The rooms are modern clean and warm in building full of character. Good value for money and the location can't be beat with private parking as well! We will certainly return!

This restaurant/B&B is in a great location. My partner and I caught the train to Windermere with our bikes and were happy to find it within a couple of hundred meters from the station and tourist information centre. Lovely modern, comfortable room with a large bathroom and shower over bath. This place has a big sitting area with tables, chairs... More
