Brilliant room, room 9, apparently best in the house for views and that is true! Exceptionally friendy and helpful staff. Only saw 2 of them over the 2 days and not sure if they owned it, doubt it but they really put in the effort. Fantastic room only let down by a disappointing shower. Saying that, it did what it...

What a great hotel, situated a few minutes walk from the town. We had a beautiful ( if very creaky ) four poster bed in our room. The bathroom was spotless with shampoo and body wash provided. A special little extra touch were a bowl of toffees and a carafe of sherry in the room, perfect to warm you up... More

We found the Lonsdale on TripAdvisor..our usual hotels had no decent rooms left. The Lonsdale promised a lot and came up with most of it. The hotel is located on Lake Road right in the heart of Bowness so walking distance for all the shops, lake, restaurants etc. so just the perfect base. We booked a deluxe double room &... More

We stayed for only one night at Lonsdale House and I wish it was longer. The room was lovely with a great bathroom and very comfortable bed. The room was decorated beautifully, I felt like I was staying in a posh hotel. The breakfast in the morning was delicious with a lot of choice and high quality food. The location... More

We stayed in a family room (1) with our 5 and 3 year olds. Having stayed in the Macdonald and Waterhead previously and taking advantage of a cheap deal it was a really lovely surprise. The shower room was admittedly small but perfectly formed and everywhere was spotless. As per previous reviews Andy the owner was incredibly warm and friendly... More

Just got back from lonsdale house. We were greeted by Andrew at front of house and found him to be a very pleasant host as we're all the staff . Although the decor in our room wasn't really to our taste it was comfortable and warm enough with very creaky four poster. Our breakfast was very nice as was the... More

we stayed for two nights in feb and enjoyed the whole place. As soon as we walked in we was greeted by a very polite gentlemen and shown to our room which seemed to be recently decorated, as the whole room looked fresh, bright and spacious. The bedroom held a very comfy double bed with a tv/dvd player, plenty of... More

We visited this hotel for a one night's stay to celebrate my wife's birthday, The owner Andrew was one of the most personable people I have ever met. He simply couldn't have been more helpful and recommended a number of restaurants for us to check out. We finally settled on his most praised restaurant and our meal at Francine's must... More
