If you are taller than 5'10", don't stay here. I spent most of my time ducking and still hit my head on a cross beam. Diane, the owner, was totally distracted by some problem with British Telecommunications when we checked In. No warm greeting, no explanation of services, nowhere around if we had needed her. We were chatting in the... More

I can only apologise you did not enjoy your stay at Holly Lodge. As you arrived I was trying my upmost to deal with BT to get the internet up and running for my guests. As I recall, I did put the phone down to check you in, explained everything you needed to know, introduced myself and said if you... More

Three days was not enough. Such a lovely guest house I would loved to have stayed longer, Dianne and her staff made it feel like home, very friendly and helpful. As I was on my own it was nice to have lovely people to have a conversation with, although the party of Americans staying there were also very chatty and... More

We stayed at Holly Lodge Guest House in Windermere for a long weekend holiday. The owner, Diane, was lovely and very accommodating. We were given a top floor room with two beds, one large enough for my husband and me, the other a single for our daughter (comfy beds too!). Plenty of space for us all. Breakfast was traditional English,... More

Can't recommend Holly Lodge, Dianne and her staff highly enough. From the first moment we arrived the service was fantastic, the Lodge was welcoming and beautifully clean. The rooms are exactly like the pictures on the website. The food was excellent and the packed lunches are great value for money. Well done Dianne.

1 night stay at B&B with partner. Warm reception on arrival, landlady was welcoming and friendly. Room was very clean and well suited for our stay. Breakfast was delicious and was served promptly. Overall our stay was perfect and I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone who wanted to come to Windermere.

After finishing a tour of Scotland we had booked some months ago to break our journey with a 1 night stay at Holly Lodge, Windermere. We arrived about 2pm and went inside where we saw the landlady. We obviously were not expected,just by the look of horror on her face, she twice came back asking if we had honestly booked... More

We spent 3 nights in Holly Lodge in May and were very pleased with our choice. It is located just off the main street in Windermere and offers comfortable quiet accommodation with ensuite and free WiFi. Room cleanliness is of a very high standard. There is a large sitting room for guests use and plenty of information available on the... More
