Great little hotel! Has it's own little car park, when we got there we was greeted by the owners and got taken to our room where we was offered a glass of wine as we arrived at tea time, the room (room 6) was gorgeous, the pictures don't do it justice at all! Big four poster bed which was so... More

Myself & my boyfriend (at the time) stayed here at the weekend. We'd booked for his birthday having never been to the Lakes before. Everything was perfect from start to finish, from Gregor's welcome & knowledge to the red velvet cake & homemade cookies. The breakfast was incredible & the room (room 2, Jungle) was inspired. Needless to say, we... More

I decided to write this review based on a recent to this wonderful b&b. One member of our party has a serious illness and Emma & Gregor couldn't do enough to help. Everything about Rum Doodle is wonderful, from the location down to the breakfast. As for breakfast the potato cake on the full Cumbrian breakfast is to die for,... More

Just what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of home. We didnt know what to expect but from the greeting when we arrived to the thankyou when we left we were not disappointed. The room was lovely with a decorated theme and the breakfast was amazing. You have to try the smoked haddock and scrambled eggs,... More

The breakfasts were great & I especially enjoyed the pancakes. The owners & their staff are very friendly & helpful. We will be returning for sure! :-)

On arrival we was greeted with a wonderful and friendly welcome and show to our room ( room 6). The room was stunning, ultra clean and comfy. The bed was huge. We were then offered tea and cake which was a really nice touch, and just what we needed to warm up after our boat trip on the lake. We... More

We stayed at the Rum Doodle for our anniversary, my husband booked it as the reviesws were good and it sounded a little bit different. On check in we were greeted by a lovely young lady, who first of all explained that the owners were on holiday, she showed us to room 1 and brought cake and coffee which was... More

So sorry you had a problem with the towel rail. The idea is that it does get quite warm in order to heat the towels. Our staff should have shown you the off switch, so apologies if this didn't happen.It would have been helpful if you'd mentioned that you'd found it too hot while you were here, then the switch...

We stayed two nights at Rumdoodle over Halloween weekend and I honestly don't have enough superlatives to do it justice. Gregor and Emma were the perfect hosts: attentive, smiley, responsive, helpful and AMAZING with our very shy four year old boy. The love and effort that they've put into creating a really special bed and breakfast experience is plain to... More
