Our room was nice and clean, and even had some homemade GF biscuits waiting for me on arrival! The room had everything you would really need; towels, haridryer, even wine glasses and a bottle opener. Breakfast was brilliant, the best GF breakfast I've had. There was fresh fruit and yogurt, as well as two types of GF cereal. The GF... More

Coeliacs can relax here, the staff are very aware of the condition and are helpful in suggesting places to eat in town as well. Our room was at the front of the house and it was beautifully laid out and cleaned everyday and the bathroom facilities were exactly what we needed. My fiance found the room a little cold although...

Firstly I'm going to say I don't understand how somebody can give a rating of one star for this B&B. The people who gave one star are either from royalty or they're complete idiots who have nothing better to do than complain about every-little-thing... The rooms are very modern, clean and comfortable. We first stayed here a few years ago... More

As a vegetarian I spotted St John's many years ago in the vegetarian magazine and had always wanted to visit....and I wasn't disappointed. Sue and Barry were so warm and welcoming and shared good local knowledge which meant we ate out at two superb restaurants... fat olives and villa positano . The breakfast was to die for...so hard to choose...would... More

Another great trip to the beautiful Lakes and stayed again at St John's lodge Hotel which is delightful. Everyone is very friendly and helpful which makes it extra special but it is such a clean and pleasant place anyway. The famous breakfasts were as good as ever. I will definately return there on my next visit to the Lakes.

The bathroom had a nice large shower and fresh white towels. Its about fifteen minutes walk down the the lake and restaurants.... More
