Well, where to start is the question?? Ok so the location is great, it's about 5 minute walk to Windermere and about 10 minutes walk to Bowness. The Rum Doodle is set off the main road on a lovely quiet street, perfect and very easy to find. We stayed in room 4, this is a lovely room with a double... More

My husband and I booked this by chance. We like to try and have a nice break just the two of us at least once a year. it was a Joint anniversary/bday get away. What can I say? We booked room 3 at first which is a small double. It was lovely but my husband is over 6ft and kept... More

Stayed for two nights in Constant ( hope I've got the name right! ) room 7, the accomodation was lovely and themed to the book, The Rum Doodle of which a copy is left in your room for your enjoyment. We were welcomed on arrival with tea & cake, which was delicious. The property is well situated for both Bowness... More

We stayed for 2 nights mid-week and found everything very pleasurable. The owners, Emma and Gregor were both lovely (though only spoke to Gregor on the phone) and it seemed to me like nothing would have been too much trouble had we asked for anything. The rest of the staff were really friendly too. Upon our arrival we were shown... More

Thank you so much! It's a blessing that the little moans are few and very infrequent! We do work hard to make Rum Doodle extra special and feel really grateful when the positive differences we offer are truly appreciated. More

We stayed two nights at the end of last week in room 5. We found it well positioned between Bowness and Windermere and could walk between the two which meant we could leave the car which was great. Breakfast was great although the room in which it was served was a bit cramped and hot when full. The bedroom was... More

Interesting review. We run the Living Social deal through the winter to cover costs and keep our staff in employment, so it really is an exeptional offer and not one we can afford to do all of the time. Our dining room windows do open, so if you'd mentioned you were too warm we could have opened a window for... More

Stayed for 3 nights. We were well looked after. Breakfasts set us up well for the day - banana porridge is to die for! Was on the ground floor and one night some of the other guests were rather noisy, but this was hardly the Rum Doodle's fault and wasn't repeated after a note was left by them the following... More

Glad you enjoyed it - apologies for any unusual noise. Apparently, on the night in question one couple of a group staying with us had lost their key and were trying to get their friends to help! Usually our Rum Doodle guests are very considerate of each other. More

Spent a lovely long weekend there. Warm and friendly greeting. Within easy walking distance for Bowness and Windermere. Loved the themed room. Room very clean and the service was good. Had the choice of breakfast in our room as well as the main dining room. Excellent breakfasts. Definitely would recommend to my family and friends.

We went to Rum Doodle on a group weekend away and had a fantastic time. From a friendly welcome, to beautifully decorated rooms and brilliant service we could not have asked for any more. It is conveniently located to walk both to Bowness and Windermere. Highly recommend and would definitely return.

My husband and I had a great stay at the Rum Doodle in Sep. A gorgeous place, with very hospitable host. Emma made us feel like we were visiting friends. The room and bathroom was small (we stayed in room 3) but had everything thoughtfully provided for, including a really comfortable brass bed, cookies to welcome us, and a tea... More
