We stayed in room 4 for one night and this place is just like the photos, stunning. Everything is immaculate, Dianne was a lovely host and checked us in straight away. The Guest House is a short walk from Windermere centre and really handy for heading out for dinner etc. Breakfast was really tasty and again Dianne was really attentive,... More

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) enjoyed our stay at Holly Lodge! We stayed in a family suite that had two twin beds in one room with a queen bed in the second room. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Dianne was friendly and went out of her way to help us! The breakfast was delicious and... More

I stayed at Holly Lodge with my family a few weeks ago. The place is well situated in a quiet street but only minutes walk from the town, shops, restaurants and cafes. It was very clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts were great. Diane was friendly and helpful and Aggie was lovely! It was good to have the use of... More

My wife and I spent five nights here exploring the Lake District and were more that pleased with our experience.: Dianne, the owner and hostess, is friendly and welcoming, and her assistant, a young German woman, is cheerful and efficient. I witnessed their patience with troublesome guests, and was the recipient of their efficiency and kindness throughout our stay. When... More

Stayed for 2 nights during July 2014. Room, location, breakfast, owner and staff all first class. Cannot recommend highly enough. Will definitely return again in the near future. Thanks for a great stay.

You simply can't beat Holly Lodge for the price we paid, the location is great and it has parking spaces. We had just a standard room as we only stayed one night and it was much more than adequate, decorated to a high standard and very tasteful. The bed is very comfy and the linens are lovely quality. Staff seemed... More

Diane was very welcoming and obliging on our arrival and the room (or rooms as we had a two bedroom unit) was very comfortable and very neat. It was very well situated for walking up into the main area of Windermere where there were good cafés for tea. Breakfast each morning was excellent with a good variety of cold and... More

Since there was no one , we left our luggage and went out....After couple of hours on getting back we met our host. ...what a lovely lady !..Diane is a very warm host and the way... More

What a great place to stay. Right from the start Diane welcomed us, and we had the French Provincial styled attic room. Diane has gone to a lot of trouble with quality furnishings and fabrics. The large lounge room for guests is a bonus. The breakfast was huge with freshly cooked orders taken. Each night we get to choose what... More
