We got back from Lakes on Saturday and had to leave a review. This bed and breakfast is just amazing! Rich, Lisa and Chris were the staff we meet and they couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The rooms are really comfortable and very clean. The location is great too near restaurants, bars and shops. Couldn't find fault with... More

Just got back from a 2 night stay at St. John's lodge with my partner, would like to thank all of the staff, with special mention going to Rich for making us feel so welcome upon arrival right up until we checked out. An outstanding venue in a truly magical place. Thank you St. John's Lodge!

A more friendly welcome you won't find! Really nice B&B perfectly situated between Windermere & Bo'ness, 10 mins walking distance from both. Great breakfast selection cooked to order. You have to order the night before which I didn't think I'd like but was absolutely fine. The room was clean & tidy & had everything you'd want.

Since I normally stay in hotels, I was a bit worried about the experience I would receive at St John's Lodge. I need not be worried, this ten bedroom B&B is a little gem. Working on a tight budget as we are due to be married next year, we booked a budget double room. Even though the room was fairly... More

Friendly and homely 2 night stay at St. John's lodge. The staff were extremely polite and friendly and always referred to me by my name. My dietary needs were exceptionally catered for with a lovely appetising breakfast. Even gluten free cookies for the rooms. The rooms were modern and clean with plenty of room. Brilliant 5 minute walk to both... More

From the minute we arrived we were greeted at the door and allowed to check in early, given a map and some info on the local area, then shown to our beautiful room 5.
