Reading other reviews and seeing the infinitely long replies from the owner, it appears that they are trying too hard to prove their point. Please review the service mate, you have a great location; this has to be balanced with everything else, especially the breakfast!! Please please hire someone to help you; the excuses of only two people ( owners)... More

Recently visited the beautiful Lake District and stayed here. The only disappointing bit was the stay in the lodge. At £150 pounds a night, the least that can be expected is that dirty towels would be replaced. The rooms are sectioned off to create bathrooms with no ventilation and toiletries were never replaced. Though the lodge advertises late check-out we... More

This review came as a surprise to us as we cannot quite place this person who says he or she stayed at our guest house, so it is difficult to respond to it. Nonetheless, here are some common sense answers to the issues raised in this person’s review. First of all, although our room tariffs range widely from only £42.50... More

As I made my plans to visit Windermere only the day before. I found this bed and breakfast place on the golakes website at short notice. On calling, I was told there were no vacant rooms. When I insisted that the website showed availability, after a little discussion, I was offered a room. To review the positives, the location of... More

First of all, we DID apologise and wish to apologise again to Ushher for originally saying that we had no vacancies for a single room when she phoned early one morning at breakfast time whilst we were trying to cook and serve 19 people their breakfasts. As I explained to her when we phoned her back later on finding out... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for a night last weekend. We had a fabulous four poster room with panoramic views over the lake. The hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and set us up good and proper for the day! Would most definitely recommend the Blenheim Lodge to anyone staying in Bowness. We will no doubt... More

Stayed here for three nights recently and chose Bowness so we could leave the car all day at the hotel to save parking etc and of course sample the local ale ;-). The Hotel its self is at top of a gradient which is not too bad when walking if you choose the shortcut shown to us by the owners.... More

Both myself and my partner booked in at Blenheim Lodge for 2 nights last weekend and we really enjoyed our stay. We found the staff were very pleasant and helpful and the room was very clean. The breakfast served offered a variety of cereals, fresh fruit, toasts and jams with a cooked breakfast that was very enjoyable and set you... More

I stayed for one night with my elderly mother. She had the Blue room on the ground floor and I was on the first floor in Claife Heights both beautifully decorated and with stunning views of the Lake. Robert and Janz were extremely welcoming and hospitable and spent time chatting and recommending restaurants (and also checking out my mother's Smart... More

We stayed for 4 nights in the Langdale room which was absolutely amazing. The view was inspiring and the location perfect for the tranquility and ease of access to the walk to the summit. We were very, very impressed with the hosts Janz and Robert who went to great lengths to accommodate us. Lovely breakfasts each day and everything in... More

Found this place thanks to TripAdvisor, so not surprised by the walk up the hill, small bathrooms or breakfast set-up. Our grown-up kids loved the old-world ambiance and soft Laura Ashley-like decor. Great that it was beside the Dalesway walk and situated high above the busy town, with views of the lake. Breakfast freshly made - so much better than... More
