Came here in July for my birthday. The location is great only down the road to the lake. Room was quiet and clean and the four poster bed was a nice touch. The host was polite and kind and breakfast was lovely and filling. They offer you more if you're still hungry but we weren't. Car parking available at the... More

Really lovely B&B. Great location. Granted may need some renovation in certain areas but it's clear to me this is happening in areas - what else would you expect from an independent business, after all? Friendly service - tasty breakfast with good ingredients, albeit a slightly small portion. Room was nice enough with complimentary sherry and toffees. Service was friendly... More

I struggle to say anything in particular positive about Lonsdale House. Arrived at precisely 10 pm, keys in envelope by front door (front door binds and has to be slammed - awful for the people in Room 3). We had Room 9 at the top. Fire doors wedged open. Our room, very dated carpet, with many large stains, but cleaned.... More

Mixed feelings about this hotel. First impressions were very good. Four poster bed which was very comfortable and the room was large, however the decor, although traditional, had mouldy stains and holes in the ceiling, it was a little tired. We had a rather large portrait in the room, thankfully the eyes did not follow you around! A nice touch... More

Me and my wife stayed at the Lonsdale for a long weekend as we where attending a wedding nearby. We checked in and were greeted and shown to our room. The gentleman that checked us in was very helpful and friendly. We felt at home straight away. The room (11) was spacious, clean and well equipped. The first night in... More

We've just returned from our two night stay. We arrived a few hours early so lounged in the sitting area which was comfortable and welcoming. After a little longer on the check in than anticipated we was shown to our room (number 3) with our complimentary drinks for the wait by a lovely lady. Room was beautiful, with drinks awaiting...

The room was nicely appointed with shabby chic furniture and a four poster bed. Bed was fairly comfortable too. However, the en suite carved from the corner of the room was tiny. Good shower though. Main problem was noise from the busy road outside - main road between Bowness and Windermere. Needed the window open and traffic noise continued intermittently... More

Stayed here for just the 1 night using trip advisor reviews for choice. Spot on reviews. We arrived early but they checked the room was ready and let us in. The host was very polite and accommodating. Our room was on the ground floor with a full size antique 4 poster bed with quirky book case wall paper to 1... More
