Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for £95 with full English breakfast in June. The hotel is situated in a great position, the staff are lovely and the breakfast is delicious. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

As soon as I'd arrived, I was greeted by a lady, Fiona who didn't seem welcoming. She seemed okay on the phone on booking and quite accommodating. I was grateful. However, When I arrived, she insisted I could not enter the room between 2-9pm. I was confused. She repeated herself thrice with the same words. She also kept referring to... More

Staff were very pleasant breakfast was great downstairs in the hotel was to a really high standard we were a little disappointed in our room, we had an attic room which showed signs of previous stains on the ceiling it also had a broken window the bed was of the slatted kind and was noisey every time you moved.

Booked this Lodge through the internet not knowing what to expect. when we arrived for three nights b&b we could not believe the quality and standard of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. only a two minute walk to the town centre, we couldn't have asked for anything better.

A lovely stay, staff very friendly, room was spotless and very spacious, minutes away from Windermere town, breakfast was delicious, onsite parking (free), WiFi was very poor, will be visiting again very soon

Dear David, thank you for your review. We do have good wifi access in the guest lounge, due to age of the building it has really thick walls, which at time affects the strength of the wifi signal in some bedrooms. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! More
