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

We are usually complimented on our breakfast not only on quality but also quantity & choice. Just to recap we offer fruit juices, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts & a breakfast cooked to order which includes eggs from a local farm (poached,fried, or scrambled) bacon & sausage from the best butcher in the lakes, tomatoes,baked beans,mushrooms & hash browns.Accompanied by wholemeal...

Stayed for one night, our room 12 was a family room with double bed and a single in the corner, with bath and shower (didn't book a family room though) on the ground floor at the back of the hotel which is quiet our own back door enabling us to bring the luggage in at our pace. It must be... More

Thank you for your somewhat biased review.Both the Family room and the Double room are of a good size. I am afraid that the pots you described as being full of weeds are actually filled with lavender. Best wishes. More

A very interesting Victorian building with a wonderfully authentic period dining room - including some historic interior photographs framed on the walls - fascinating. All very bright, light, clean and comfortable - super traditional breakfast and the owners are charming, cultured and artistic. Surprisingly quiet once the shops are shut, we had a lovely night's sleep though we were at... More

We spent 2 nights at the White Lodge Hotel. We're greeted by very friendly staff who chatted for ages with us giving us ideas of where to go and what to do. Our room was a good size and bathroom facilities were adequate for a couple of days. It is an easy walk to the main shopping area (only 5... More

Just back from a lovely 3 night stay at the White Lodge Hotel. Very friendly welcome which made us feel at ease right away. Super comfy four poster bed and spotlessly clean room with homely individual touches. Toilet/shower room a little on the small side but with everything you would want including a nicely powered shower and lovely big fluffy... More
