White Lodge Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 9, 2013

I really like the White Lodge. Its conveniently located close to all the attractions Bowness has to offer. The owners, Vicky and Liz, provide a warm and friendly welcome, and the accommodation is comfortable and great value. I stayed for two nights at the beginning of the season and really enjoyed myself. Rooms and bathrooms are spotless, and the full English breakfast was delicious. Lots of handy car parking too. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

A lovely hotel close to all main areas. Owner and staff very approachable
and helpful.
Stayed from Friday to Sunday in two double rooms, very clean and had
all our needs met.
Would recommend and stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Both rooms were very good

A lovely hotel, very close to all the main sights of the central Lake District. The hotel was comfortable, clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to come back here after a long day walking... Would recommend a stay here as you can't really go wrong. It has everything you will need!

For the price we paid I was expecting more. The room was cold and the heating was only turned on for short periods. One day I had to ask for it to be turned on at 5 PM on a day that was 10 degrees outside and very wet.
No wine or chocolates - as per website.
WIFI - very limited access.
Breakfast really average.

Room Tip: Choose one in a different place

I would just like to reply with the following 1. The wine & chocolates are available if you book directly with us & not through a booking agent such as Booking.com 2. The heating is on all day apart from 2am - 4 am 3. The wifi is free and available 24 hours a day. 4. Our breakfast is freshly cooked and has a lot of variety. At no time did you mention to me any of your complaints.

We've recently stayed for a couple nights here and must have had the smallest double room ever for a 'hotel'. They call it a hotel on the website but the notice in the porch says it's a 'guest house'. Washbasin in the bedroom, separate toilet and shower in the entrance hall of the room. Also in need of redecoration. However we were given a warm welcome and the breakfast was good

The room you stayed in has a large bay window and so I am mistified as how you can call it small. The furniture is all antique & as we get many compliments I am not planning to change it at the moment.

My partner and I stayed here for five nights having been to this hotel before and had a super time then , so wanted to check it out for a second time. We were not disappointed. The welcome was very warm, room extremely clean and comfortable, really liked the breakfast which was cooked beautifully and served with a cheerful smile. By coincidence we arrived at the same time as the Olympic torch relay going through and loved the White Lodge mascot!
Find the location of this hotel excellent as it is a gentle walk to the Lake, is very central for shopping and restaurants, bars etc. Also really appreciate the car park as parking is not always easy in other hotels. The staff are more than willing to help with any queries and to give very good advice about what are the best attractions to visit. This hotel is a definite favourite and well worth the trip up from the Sussex coast. We're already pencilling a couple of dates for next year
