My partner and I booked this accommodation as a last minute stay in the lakes and it was worth every single penny. We stayed in one of the wooden lodges at the book of the hall and not in the actual building itself. Our room was brand new, modern, spotlessly clean and beautiful to look at with a huge comfy bed complete with feather duvet. We had the most beautiful views of the mountains and it really was idyllic to wake up to. We didn't eat the breakfast because my partner was feeling a little under the weather but we did take a look at the eating area and it was really clean and everything looked good. The ONLY negative things I would say are the other rooms/accommodation.... I would only stay here in the lodges and NOT in the other more dated rooms. They didn't look great but I am very fussy and they are probably absolutely fine if you don't mind staying in a very basic, no frills room for a night. Take my advice and pay the extra money for the superior room, you will not be disappointed.
It is a short walk into Ambleside which we decided to do in the evening, it wasn't very testing but take a torch! Pitch black and scary without a light.
I really hope you stay in Brathay Hall because it was beautiful and well worth the money.
