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

We booked a last minute trip to the lakes & chose Lonsdale House. We weren't disappointed. All staff encountered were pleasant & more than attentive. We managed to park on the back carpark although it is small & parking is like a game of tetris. The back carpark will hold 5 cars (although it's a very very tight fit) &... More

Stayed with my girlfriend. Can't express how welcome we were made to feel. Loveliest people. Great service. Great value. It's not the ritz but it doesn't try to convince you otherwise yet provides a more personable service than many a 5 star place.

Stayed here last week and have a lovely stay. Plenty of parking, had to wait a while to check in, but no issues. Large room with double four poster bed. Shower was small but fine! Breakfast is a self service buffet with a served cooked option. Good service. Will hopefully be back!

The location was convenient as the hotel is close to the lake. The staff were helpful in giving us information and recommending view points in the area. Thw staff gave us the oppertunity to warm up our food in the microwave. The breakfast was to the standard. For the price paid we got a good service

This is a nice hotel and the location is great, however we stayed in room 7 (a family room) which is on the front of the hotel. The room is dominated by a four poster bed with 2 single beds at either side. The room itself was quite large but extremely dark and only had 2 available plugs - a... More

Reasonably priced, great location. Fast and friendly check in. Our room was clean and spacious. Though the toilet was a little cramped. The room had a TV, tea making facilities and a unique little decanter of sherry on arrival. The hotel has a cosy dining area which you are served breakfast, full choice of cereals, fruit juices and of course... More
