We have chosen to stay in Lakes Lodge because of the good reviews it's receiving on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed.
The location is superb - just a couple of minutes walk to the center of Ambleside. The room we had (number 2 on the first floor) was clean, spacious and really warm. The heating stays on all the time and makes the whole place warm and cosy (exactly what one needs after long walk around the lakes). The room was being cleaned daily and tea/coffee facilities topped up.
Breakfast was really nice - one can select from full English breakfast to continental selection of fruit, yogurts and croissants.
The selection of DVDs is a nice touch if you wish to stay indoors for the evening.
The only minus is the small parking (we had to leave the car outside the main door on the road one night) but it's nothing that would stop us from coming again in the future.
