Visited here with my partner for my birthday in august 2014. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly lady who showed us to our room and around the hotel. Had a relaxing drink in the lounge area after a long drive up and perused the welcome pack which recommended plenty of restaurants in the area. The room was... More

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

I had been looking forward to staying at this hotel as our room had been upgraded and we had found a very good price by going directly to their web site. The room was very nice, up two flights of stairs and I don't recall knowing that there was no lift before we arrived. The bathroom was especially nice being... More

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. There is parking space which is handy. Also the rooms are nice and clean. I was surprised as the full English breakfast with toast cereals was included in the price. This was a nice surprise at the end of a lovely trip. Free WIFI too.

Dear Matt thank you for your review. Having a car park is very useful for our guests especially being so close to the centre of Windermere and just over a mile to the Lake. So pleased that you enjoyed our breakfast, which is included in our rates along with free wifi. More

Had a lovely stay here with my partner for 4 nights, great value for money. We had a warm spacious room with a full English breakfast included. The breakfast also had kippers on the menu which I think are great! The location is great location too, in the centre of Windermere and short walk off Bowness (15-25 minutes)
