We only stayed here one night but had a lovely large room (room 1) with a large bathroom with bath tub, shower etc. There was a large wall-mounted TV with freeview channels and a separate DVD player in the room. Comfortable double bed with warm duvet, central heating in the room very good. Very friendly lady who seemed to run the place, happy to chat and talk about anything and help with routes and activity ideas we had. Good breakfast in the morning with hot and cold buffet. I cannot fault our stay, it was a lovely hotel in every way.

My partner and I and our 10 month old baby stayed at Lakes Lodge from 17th-19th Nov 2012 and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were more than welcoming, our room was beautiful, large enough to have the travel cot, pushchair, and plenty of room for our son to crawl around. The place was really clean and welcoming.
Breakfast was lovely and lots of selection.
I really cant find anything to complain about, we will definitely be visiting again.

Thank you Lakes Lodge for a wonderful break xx

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Lakes Lodge with my boyfriend. We had a wondeful time, perfect place to stay and perfect location. We loved our room (room 4) we had a four poster bed which was very comfortable, the room was spacious with a bath and shower in the bathroom. The room also had a TV and DVD player. The staff at Lakes Lodge made us feel extremely welcome and they could not do enough to help, they always had smiles on their faces and were all very friendly. A special thanks to Kath, from the day she checked us in to the day we checked out Kath couldn't be more helpful. Breakfast each morning was fab, we were able to go down in the morning and help ourselves to as much food as possible, there was plently to choose from (lovely bacon & sausages!!) each morning we took our breakfast back up to bed on a tray, the staff even helped carry this upstairs for us. This was the first time we visited the Lake District and we can't wait to return, will definitely stay at Lakes Lodge again.

we stayed in the 'Bluebird' room for three nights for a reduced price having found a last minute deal online. It was a lovely room that had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the room looked as though it was newly decorated. It was a huge space, very light with modern decor and extremely clean. The bathroom again was spotless with a large shower and lovely complimentary hand wash etc. I was very impressed with the breakfast in the morning, there was lots to choose from and staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Plenty of parking.
