Thank you for your review. Our family room offers space for families with 2 TVs, seating area, bunk beds and large bathroom, with a walk in shower. Meaning that children will not trip over any shower trays and they can have a splashing time either in the shower or large bath. There is an opportunity to close the curtains between... More

We booked a double room which was marvellous. Spacious and clean, nice colour scheme, a good sized ensuite and a comfy bed. We sat in the residents lounge one night playing the provided Scrabble and flicking through their maps which was comfortable and well lit. Breakfast was good, a nice list of options and tasty. Overall we had a great... More

We choose this hotel as our honeymoon destination for two nights following a offer from its sister hotel- the gables in gretna! Unfortunately the junior suite in the offer was only available our second night. However, we were recommended room 14 on the very top level so many many stairs to carry our luggage up but then again we do... More

Hi Victoria thank you for your detailed review. Yes room 14 is quirky and being at the back of the property does give you views of School Knott. We are in the process of dealing with the other issues you mention. We are so pleased that you had a great stay with us and loved our Junior Suite, especially seeing... More

Regular visitors to the Windermere & Bowness areas of the Lake District. Exceptionally comfortable property, large car park, close to all amenities such as local restaurants, shops & pubs. First class breakfast. Staff really polite & friendly. If you want a bar, visit The Brookside pub a few minutes walk up Ellerthwaite Road.

My wife and I stayed at Ellerthwaite Lodge for a couple of nights between Christmas and New Year 2013.
