A genuinely warm welcome, a very pleasant and comfortable room, lovely guest lounge, spotlessly clean throughout, really exceptional choice and quality of breakfast and good parking. The owner, Rich, and his staff were friendly and most helpful in assisting you to get the most out of your stay. Highly recommended. Added plus - a gluten free diet did not mean... More

There is always a friendly welcome at St John's Lodge and Sue and Barry have always been chatty, attentive and happy to meet any and every dietary preference! The rooms are comfortable and the whole place has a welcoming feel about it. The location is very good - between Windermere town and Bowness town, so it is quieter than the... More

We stayed for two nights in a standard double. The size of the room was what we expected, just the right size for two, newly decorated, very clean and an extremely comfy bed!

Lovely place to stay, great location for Lakeland and Windermere, nothing was too much trouble for the owners, they were very adaptable to requests for breakfast alternatives even though they have an extensive list already and they were very easy to chat too and gave advice about places to eat in the evenings, would definitely recommend St Johns Lodge

Thanks Catherine for taking the time to feed back. Yes, indeed, we like to get the breakfasts 'spot on' and people are welcome to go off piste from the menu. We can usually take most requests in our stride - at least with the breakfasts anyway! :-) I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Rich More

Rich and his team were delightful, the room was clean and well presented, the wifi was good (always a plus in our travels) and the breakfast was award worthy. Will stay again without a doubt. Windermere was a pleasure and so was this guest house.
