I have stayed at the White Lodge several times and I can honestly say, certainly while Liz and Vicky are the proprietors I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Clean and welcoming, with freshly home cooked food, it is like home from home

We have just returned from a two day visit to Ambleside on 26 August 2014. The White Lodge Hotel was perfect. The owners and staff friendly and welcoming. Room 8 was beautiful, spotlessly clean, towels really soft and everything you need. The view from our window outstanding. Lovely touch chocolates and wine for staying two nights. Breakfast excellent, set you... More

We stayed at the White Lodge Hotel for two nights. It is excellently situated for Bowness and the four poster bedroom was beautiful. The breakfast was of a high quality and the staff were all very welcoming and accommodating. We have made numerous visits to Bowness and will be staying at the White Lodge Hotel in the future!

I stayed at the White Lodge with family and we all enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly and informed us of places to visit the hotel is located in a good location and everything is within walking distance. The rooms were comfortable and the hotel itself had lots of charcter and history. Only negative aspect was the bathroom not having... More

Planned a stay in Windermere with family and decided to go with the White Lodge because of the positive reviews. There was 8 of us and we had booked 3 rooms. The rooms looked cosy and had Victorian features whilst looking very classic. The bathroom was very clean and looked like it had been refurbished recently, which is a good... More

The White Lodge Hotel delivers what it promises. It is clean, friendly, conveniently located, and serves great breakfasts. The rooms are entirely acceptable (and the mattresses above average for comfort!) though on the top floor, the stairs are quite steep and those with mobility issues might struggle. The parking is adequate (and important in Bowness). The Wi-Fi is fast and... More

Spent a lovely weekend in Bowness recently, having never stayed in. B&B/Guesthouse before I have to admit I wasn't sure and worried it would be too old fashioned and not very private. However, I found it to be the opposite. A lady I believe called Jo is very helpful and everything we needed or requested was never a problem. Perhaps... More

Just returned from a 1 night stay and would happily have stayed longer. The owners, 2 sisters, were very friendly and helpful. Our room , room 5, was a lovely four poster with a modern spacious ensuite. Breakfast was wonderful. Proper bread used for the toast, no cheap and nasty supermarket stuff. The sausages were high quality and I'm guessing... More

Similar to another revue we were in room 12 which is a family room. Our stay was ok. The parking was good as was the location. The key that you get given however is quite inconvenient as the key is attached to a huge brass plaque which you have to carry around - so make sure you either have very... More
