Stayed here weekend of the 23rd January. Our room was beautiful with a 4 poster bed. Very clean and loved the vintage furniture. Breakfast was brilliant, very good choice of fruit juices, cereals and fresh fruit as well as your choice of a cooked breakfast. Will definitely be returning!

The staff at the Ellerthwaite are extremely friendly and welcoming- yet not intrusive. Our room totally exceeded expectations! Very comfortable, clean and up to date decor. The hotel is very good value for money, we recently stayed in bowness elsewhere for £35 more than the Ellerthwaite per night, but nowhere near the same quality. I thourougly recommend staying here, and... More

Great place to stay, just outside the centre of Windermere and very handily situated. My room was very small but I didn't need a big room, personally I thought it was a terrific use of space to fit a room in. I was warm and comfortable and slept like a log. Breakfast was amazing, poached free range eggs (from the... More

I stayed here with my husband for new year from December 30th-January 1st. The hotel is well situated in Windermere and we used it as a base to visit Coniston, Keswick and Grasmere during our stay. It is a short walk to the lake where we enjoyed the NYE fireworks. The hotel benefits from ample private parking, good wifi and... More

We stayed here as it was close to the shops (to get milk for our toddlers) and the large room (#17). The staff were great and I looked forward to the English breakfast each morning. There was no fridge for the milk but as it was winter it kept cold in the bathroom. The wifi was fine. Bowness and Ambleside... More
