An excellent hotel - this was our first stay but will definitely not be our last, we hope to be back again soon. The hotel is full of character, its quirky and unique but incredibly comfortable and the Owners make you feel at home immediately. The breakfasts are brilliant and you will need a walk after them !

We spotted this gem in the Sunday paper on our last city break The ratings raved about the place and it's fair to say we were not disappointed The hosts were both excellent and service was great with lots of special touches The place is quirky but kitted out in style Breakfast served in our room and it's probably as...

A wonderful welcome with a glass of wine. Great room with 4 poster bed and very clean. Owners very helpful with supplying ice for our G&T. The breakfast was excellent with a varied menu and nothing was to much trouble. Great location easy walk to Bowness or Windermere. Would highly recommend this and would stay again.

Stayed here for a couple of nights in August. Very friendly and helpful owners. Breakfast was lovely! We stayed in Room 5 - Wish and it was very comfortable. Really like the quirkiness of this place. Also very well located, being able to walk to the centre in about 5 minutes. Will definitely be back!

I almost don't want to give a glowing review to this fabulous place as I know that it will soon become the sort of place that is constantly booked up and I won't be able to get a room.........perfectly placed, lovely and lovingly styled, comfortable, welcoming......in short, everything a great B&B should be........but if I don't get a room next...

I cannot heap enough praise for this place. We spent our third wedding anniversary here in 2013 August 2013. We stayed in in the top suite which was surprisingly comfortable. The Couple that run it are very polite and serve a great English breakfast. The couple suggested places for us to visit, and we took up their suggestions, We went... More

We stayed at the B&B for a weekend break. We found the location really good - walking distance to WIndermere and Bowness on Windermere town centres. The B&B is quirky and has lots of interesting things around. The owners were really welcoming and friendly offering lots of helpful advice on what to do and see during our stay. The breakfast...

Many thanks, glad you enjoyed Rum Doodle! We don't usually have worries about portion sizes with our award-winning breakfasts. Most of our guests appreciate the quality and presentation of the food rather than having a plate piled high in order to privide the illusion of value. Of course, we are always happy to provide larger portions should our guests require... More

This is the perfect B&B for a trip to the Lake District. It's centrally located - a short walk to both Windermere town center and Bowness on Windermere - we didn't rent a car and were able to walk everywhere. The owners are lovely and make a fantastic breakfast that's included in your stay. They also have very thorough binders... More

Many thanks - glad you loved Rum Doodle! It is possible to stand up in the attic rooms! However, if you are over 6ft tall the ground and first floor rooms might be more comfortable. More

We booked a 2 night stay in the Burley room and were blown away by the b&b. Firstly most other hotels and b&b's of this quality in Windermere were double the price so a very reasonable price for a real luxury experience. The rooms are decorated to a high standard and the attention to detail is very impressive. The individual... More

I first spotted Rum Doodle on Tripadvisor and having seen the reviews we booked in. We weren't disappointed. We were greeted by Emma with a cup of tea and a slice of home made cake which was lovely. There is a car park at the back which meant it was easy to get our things from the car and make... More
