Just had the pleasure of stopping here for 3 x nights and I must say it was excellent. We stopped on a B & B basis and it was superb value for money. The Hotel itself is ideally located for both Bowness and Windermere (indeed most of the Lakes). We were made very welcome by Andrew and the entire team... More

Large coffee stain on bed valance sheet, dust under beds and around all the room. The single bed in the room had a very old mattress that... More

First trip to UK and chose the lake district to spend a short vocation. We stayed in Lonsdale for two nights. And I was traveling with two friends, the staff let us stay in one room and only charge two more breakfasts. The room we stayed is in the top floor and has plenty space for us three. We also... More

We never before visited the Lake District and this location was decided on to celebrate my 60th birthday together with my family. The staff is exceptional and very friendly. Especially Andrew. There is a lovely reception area and sitting area and lovely relaxing music is played. I would not classify the Hotel as 4 stars and also not classify the... More

The guest house was nice and fairly well taken care of. The staff was amazing and helpful. From the first second Andrew was so welcoming and helpful. The rooms, furniture and decor is not 4 star however. We were in an upper level and had a partial view of the lake and valley which was very nice. The breakfast was... More

We stayed at Lonsdale House for only 2 nights and wish it had been longer. Everything was great and far exceeded our expectations representing excellent value for money. It is really well located and is close to all the restaurants, pubs and lake. The room was lovely. It was spacious, tastefully decorated in keeping with the age of the building... More

Genuine welcome from Andrew and staff. Spacious and clean family room/ bathroom. Homely breakfast . Parking tight but possible with a small car. Don't be discouraged being pet friendly - it's fresh and spotless. Definatly coming back . :-)

This place is not luxurious and it does not claim to be one. Its a small, family run hotel. The service at breakfast was very good. Andrew is so friendly, you feel totally at home with him. The room was very clean and beds comfortable. Sherry & toffees in room were a bonus. Our room at the back had a... More
