4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Wasn't very expensive so wasn't expecting much. Its ideal for Windermere (only 2 mins walk) and only a mile from Bowness. The Lodge itself needs a lick of paint but it is nice and clean. We had room 9 which is small and near the road but we never heard the traffic. The only downside was the noisy vent in... More

Nice venue, clean and friendly staff. Sad to say though there are more negatives than positives. Near main road with single glazing - traffic noise! No heating, room 6 has a door to next room (locked) but you can hear your neighbours way to clearly! Ours had bad coughing and throwing up - nasty! Breakfast - fair; but pan stirred... More

Thank you for your review. I note that you did not book prior to your arrival and in fact drove passed us and then decided to stay, so you knew that we are located on a main road. We are in a conservation area so we do have to comply with the rules about how we upgrade the building part... More

We stayed for one night in September 2014. The hotel is 100 yards from Windermere high street and only a 15-20 minute walk to the lake and more shops and restaurants. The hotel itself looks very nice and we were impressed with the service we received. We stayed in a room on the top floor which was well sized and... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night break at the Ellerthwaite. The hotel is situated in a fantastic location just a few minutes walk from Windermere centre and a 20 minutes downhill stroll into the much busier Bowness. We loved the character of the building and having off road parking was a definite bonus. Our room... More

I along with my parents stayed in the B AND B in the second floor family room. Excellent room and world class bathrooms. The ladies who manage it are very polite and served breakfast as if we were their guests at home. Close to Windermere station, though bit far from the lakeside.

Dear Paul, I understand that you booked through booking.com for your stay at Ellerthwaite Lodge. One of the difficulties of doing this is that the system they use notes that there are rooms available over the period of time your request and does not explain that the availability may be in different rooms. Generally when this happens we do try... More
