“Would certainly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We visited for two nights at February half term, a family of four with children aged 15 and 12. Really impressed with this place and would certainly visit again. Excellent value for money. Very clean, comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast. Brilliant value for money!

We stayed at Lonsdale House for one night and had a truly wonderful stay. Host Andrew is warm, welcoming and great to chat to. Much to our delight Andrew very kindly upgraded our double room to a deluxe four poster room at no additional cost. Room 6 was beautifully decorated following a recent refurbishment with elegant, grand features befitting of a former gentleman's residence. We slept so peacefully in the lovely room and awoke to a delicious full English breakfast, also beautifully presented. This was a wonderful stay at a very reasonable price, highly recommended for a stay in Bowness. Thank you Andrew and all of the lovely staff at Lonsdale House, we hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: Room six, a four poster room is beautiful.

It was really nice to meet you both and thank you for your fantastic review. It was great to be able to show off the refurbished rooms and it is even nicer that it was so appreciated - it makes all the hard work behind the scenes worthwhile. Again thank you and we look froward to welcoming you back in the future.

We have just returned from a 2 night family break, 2 adults 2 children, we stayed in the large Family room which was a great size and very clean. The staff and owner were very friendly and could not do enough for you, Breakfast was lovely, the location is brilliant as it’s a short walk to the lake, Shops and places to eat. In the evening we took advantage of the homely lounge area where we were able to relax with a drink and there are board games to keep the kids and us entertained, all in all we had a lovely break and will be coming back. Thank you

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents.
Bought as a Christmas gift, Andrew could not do enough for us during the organising of the weekend to make it extra special for my parents. They were given a beautiful 4 poster room with special little touches which was absolutely lovely. They said the lounge/bar area was very cosy and the breakfasts were delicious. The location was perfect just minutes from the shops and the lake. They can't wait to return and we are also going to book later in the year.

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to write such a great review - it really is appreciated. We really enjoy what we do here at The Lonsdale and it is great meeting such nice people as your parents and making their stay so special. It makes all the hard work worthwhile when we put a smile on somebody's face and the icing on the cake is to receive an e-mail and/or a review thanking us - it is like a little pat on the back. Thanks again Zoe and we look forward to welcoming you later in the year and making your stay with us very special.

we stayed at lonsdale house at the end of jan. 2 adults and our 1yr old daughter stayed in room 1 which is a luxury family room. A comfortable room, very friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location. Good breakfast. a couple of minor niggles were a humming heating system and a lack of a bath. (Although the manager did provide us with a baby bath ). Would stay again at the price found on laterooms website. ps. nice sherry on arrival.

Thank you for your great review. If you let us know when you will be coming to stay with us again we will book you into a room with a bath rather than an en-suite shower room. Thanks for letting us know about the humming - British Gas came out and it was the Thermostatic Radiator valve in the room which was loose and as a result the pin inside was vibrating. The engineer tightened it up and all is well now.

I stayed in the Lonsdale for one night. Can't think of anything to complain about. The room I stayed in was nicely decorated and of good size. It was also well located on the main road, just minutes from the shops and restaurants.
