Lovely little guest house in a great location. The rooms were comfortable and had everything you need for a short stay (hairdryer included!). We stayed on the ground floor, which was fine, we could hear if someone noisy came in but only the odd time. The bathroom was a little on the small side, but we didn't mind for one... More

A very warm, cosy place to stay. Very friendly, helpful staff. Lonsdale House has a laid back, relaxed feel. Dog friendly, the staff even made our four legged friends sausages for breakfast, a cute & welcome touch. We stayed in Room 2, a Deluxe Room with a comfortable four post bed, however the bathroom needed a little extra TLC to... More

Came for one night in November 2014 with my partner and my parents. The hotel is just a few steps away from restaurants and bars in Bowness (I personally recommend the hole in the wall just down the road.) Rooms were of a good size and came with a four poster bed. The sherry in the room was a nice... More

Just returned from three nights stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Made allowances for dog by letting us get breakfast at bar. Has both front and rear car park. Tea coffee in room, flat panel TV shower cubicle. All very clean. Only about 10 mins walk to lakeside.

Arrived to be greeted by a very friendly hotel manager. He was helpful & let us check in early. He even gave us a choice of 2 rooms. Hotel in great location for walking upto Windermere or around Bowness. Good selection at breakfast & a table was waiting for us with a high chair without having to ask.

My family and I have stayed in this lovely little B&B on two occasions. In 2013 and 2012. Both over the Easter period. It is situated on the main road but not too close to all the activities that you are kept awake at night. We stayed in a family room both times and both times had an excellent sleep.... More

The hotel is 10 -12 minutes walk from the Bowness Pier and near to restaurants. The breakfast was not that great but okay. Overall i will recommend this place to all. Its... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on my first trip to the lake district. Despite other reviews, I found the room clean, the food delicious, and the staff very kind and helpful. Yes the parking's not great, but where is in the LD? At least you got a parking space, and when we were blocked in it was no problem... More
