Well done Emma and Gregor had a really fabulous stay in the Jungle. I think it was all the little touches that made all the difference. The food was cooked and presented to perfection and a really good menu to cater for everyone. We thought the room was really quirky and we spent ages looking at the maps. It was... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Rum Doodle - the owners are friendly, the rooms are nicely decorated and the breakfasts are superb. I liked having it delivered to our room and would particularly recommend the smoked haddock and poached eggs in the morning. Nice to have a cafetiere of fresh coffee too. We upgraded to the Superior Room called... More

Well thanks for the 4 stars! Glad you seemed to like the upgraded room. There is a useful, and rather pretty (vintage fish!) blackout blind for the bathroom window - it's fairly easy to pull that down if you are concerned about privacy. We don't normally offer beans with our award-winning breakfast, but if we were advised in advance of... More

Everything was just wonderful, from the lovely warm welcome to the friendly goodbye and all the iddy biddy bits inbetween made our stay more than perfect! :) Our room (shute) was brilliant, exceeded our expectations..who wouldn't love a cosy and comfy 'princess' four poster bed? Quirky, beautiful and spotless. The theme and attention to detail in our room and throughout... More

Me and my partner stayed for two nights just as a simple getaway. The owners Emma and Greg could not have been more welcoming, greeting us with tea and cake on arrival. The hotel was decorated with a very distinct and unique style while maintaining a relaxing warmth and homeliness. Breakfast each morning was delicious with a very nice variety... More

We booked Rum Doodle through Living Social and our two night stay included lake cruise tickets which was a great bonus. On arrival we were greeted with gorgeous cake and a selection of teas and coffees - a really lovely touch. Emma and Gregor were really welcoming as well and gave an overview of the stay. We were in room... More

Emma & Gregor were very helpful and communicative in setting up a one night stay last minute, at a very reasonable rate. We were greeted with freshly brewed coffee and some of Emma's tasty Earl Grey cake. Gregor also gave us some useful local walking tips. The room was perfect, with views over the town and quirky bookshelf wallpaper. We... More

Me and my partner booked to stay at Rum Doodle after finding a Livingsocial deal online. It was our first time away together as a couple, and we had been looking forward to it for months - it certainly didn't disappoint! It is situated in a picturesque location about a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of Bowness. On arrival... More

Rum Doodle is sincerely kooky and eclectic without ever seeming like it is trying too hard to be so. The fact that the accommodation has a district theme and is based on a specific piece of literature really adds to the charm of the place. It was a little less intimate than we are used to but that was only... More
