We arrived and the staff were very friendly and helpful. He showed us to the room which was spacious, comfortable and well decorated. The hotel seemed very clean. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that the biscuits in the room were already open and had been half eaten when we arrived. Also the breakfast was lovely...

Stayed on an overnight at the Lake House. We booked last thing and arrived in the dark. What a lovely hotel. Comfortable superior double room with amazing views over Windermere and the fells beyond. The breakfast was good although I should have opted for the full house ! Thoroughly recommend it.

The room was lovely, the bed was so comfortable and the shower was fantastic. The receptionist was very welcoming and the whole place had a really friendly, relaxed feel. Breakfast was great -...

We booked a superior room with a super king sized bed. The bathroom appeared new and although there was no bath, it had a large shower cubicle with 2 showers. It also had underfloor heating and was VERY warm. We were put in a 'hideaway' room in an annex and on the ground floor. The room wasn't enormous and felt...

My wife and I and our small dog stayed at Lake House for 4 nights before and after New Year. We were in one of the 'Hideaway' rooms, which are spacious and modern and far exceeded our expectations. The room was perfectly placed for the adjoining footpath, which leads up to Jenkin Crag with splendid views of Lake Windermere. The...

We regularly visit the Lake House, and continue to return, as the rooms are lovely and clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is excellent, freshly cooked and hot, served to your table, not warm buffet self service style. We have yet to find fault, and have stayed there many times, in fact we have already made two future bookings. Highly recommended.
