Very comfortable room with lots of natural light and spacious bathroom. Located on the edge of town 10minutes walk to lake and park and only about 5minutes to town centre. We will definitely be visiting again. Superb breakfast with lots of quality food to choose from. On site parking which is a must for visitors to the lakes.

We booked three superior rooms online and they really were superior, as indeed were the buffet -style breakfasts and the service. As we paid in advance for three nights we received a discount on our bill. The car parking was convenient and the location ideal, just a five minute walk to town pubs and restaurants. Windermere Lake is a good... More

Our room was a good size, very comfortable with full bath. Lakes Lodge accommodated us with our request for a full bath (versus en-suite) prior to our arrival. The location is excellent for ambling about Ambleside !

My friend had never been to the Lakes so we stayed here one night. Nice room -- very large and modern. Great bathroom. The hotel was very clean. Service was good. Wished we could have stayed longer. Breakfast was just OK, nothing special.

The room was a great size with two double beds which were comfy and it had a large bathroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful, with recommendations on where to go. They took our boots somewhere to dry when we got back dripping wet and they were waiting for us by the front door the next morning. Great location... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and would recommend the Lodge as it located on the edge of the town centre, breakfast is buffet style and staff are very attentive to ensure the hot food counter is replenished immediately to ensure all guests have a full range to choose from.

the Lakes Lodge Daffodil Room is for you. It is spacious and comfortable with an excellent shower and bathroom. However, while there is an extractor fan in the bathroom, there is no air-conditioning so you are reliant on opening the very heavy sash-hung window for fresh air. It would be nice if one could lock it in the ajar position... More
