We have stopped in this hotel 3 times now and have another stay already booked for early next year. Location is excellent, rooms are lovely and the staff are really helpful and welcoming. We live in a beautiful part of North Wales but Ellerthwaite Lodge keeps drawing us up north to another equally beautiful part of the UK. Get your... More

Just come back from a couple of nights at the Ellerthwaite Lodge and the service from the staff was excellent, very friendly and at breakfast (one of the best) nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and well serviced. The only negative is that this is an old and listed building so a little damp in the odd... More

Lovely Arts & Crafts building, very quiet - best night's sleep I've had for a long time. The single glazing wasn't an issue as my room was at the back. Staff very friendly, both at check in and the Scottish lady at breakfast. Atmospheric lounge at the head of the stairs to read or relax in, with complementary magazines. As... More

Thank you for your review . As you state we are an art and crafts influenced building and as such we are restricted as to what we are able to do regarding changing windows etc. However our front room windows look out over the side of the building so can help to reduce some of the traffic noise. So pleased... More

We spent halloween weekend here, arriving Friday afternoon and leaving on Sunday morning, we arrived early (rooms are available from 2pm), the room wasn't quite ready, so we parked the car and took a walk around Windermere's shops, on returning at 2 pm our room, (room 9) was ready. The room itself was unusual in the fact that it was... More

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

Thank you for your review and rising the issue regarding the bathroom vent, we will look into this. Room 9 is at the back of the building so is away from the main road. So pleased that you will stay here again. Regards Gillian 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.
