The hotel was lovely, and in a decent location. The staff were were helpful and friendly. The hotel is clearly well looked after. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and modern.

Ellerthwaite Lodge was a sort of last resort after all the hotels on ourright side of the lake were fully booked. Windermere itself is nice little town with some great restaurants (Francine's!!!)withinwaling dstance of the lodge. The food allone makes a stay in the lodge worth while. The rooms are fine, a bit small but clean and well kept. Perfect... More

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
