Spent 3 days at Ambleside in Sept 2016. The Lakes Lodge provided a large room in the downstairs rear area - big, modern bathroom, tea & coffee in-room and a fantastic, plentiful breakfast. Staff were informative and friendly. Parking available on-site (first come, first served basis) and is included in the rate. Location is close to the charming township and... More

The B & B lodge is well located in the village where there is a variety of eating places, hotels restaurants etc. A 10-15 minute easy walk to the lake itself. Our room was modern and roomy with nice hot large showers in the ensuite for tall people.

I was impressed with the communication from the hotel prior to arriving and I wasn't disappointed when we arrived. Our room was number 15, Hillside and it was very spacious, with good facilities. The staff had even filled the dog bowls with water and treats for our dog in advance. There is a window, but as it is lower ground,... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Ambleside has a lot of places to eat and drink and Lakes Lodge is in easy walking distance of most of them. Whilst parking is available, you need to get there early. For a long stay the bathroom's are... More

Came for a last minute bank holiday weekend break with my partner, and with everywhere being fully booked my expectations weren't set to high. We stayed in the sister hotel the night before we stayed here, and both were pleasant and exceeded expectations. Staff are friendly and did everything they could to ensure our stay was enjoyable.

We had a room (number 1) well located, quiet and quite spacious. Spacious, clean bathroom too. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast and good to be in town. Parking available which is a must. We used to stay closer to Windermere lake end of Ambleside but being in town has been very convenient to start walks right from Ambleside.
