“Our home away from home”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Thank you to Vicky and Liz and their team for yet another thoroughly enjoyable stay at the White Lodge Hotel! Very comfortable, tidy and warm rooms, excellent breakfast, great location. But what makes this hotel truly exceptional is its warm and welcoming atmosphere. We'll certainly be back!

A big thank you to Vicky and Liz and the lovely staff at the White Lodge. One of the highlights of a 2 month family holiday around the UK was staying here for a week. Everyone was friendly and helpful, offering great advice on the best places to visit to truly experience the Lakes District. Breakfast was lovely and the rooms spotless. Great location close to the shops, restaurants and lake. Was truly sad to leave.

Selecting a hotel in a location you don't know is always a game of chance but the White Lodge certainly proved to be an excellent choice. The room was very clean and comfortable and had a newly referbished enquire, the Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was delicious, we ate ours in the light and airey bistro which was a very pleasant way to start the day. Location is good, easy walking distance from shops and lake with onsite car parking as an added bonus

First visit to this lovely hotel, very welcoming staff, from the moment we walked through the door
it felt like we had been there a hundred times, the room was spotless and very nicely decorated a mixture of classic & contemporary decor, breakfast was in a light and airy room the food was good too, its was a pleasure to spend a weekend there, which when your away for only a few days is exactly what you need, brilliant, and the sun came out too (not for long but it was welcome).
Thanks to all the staff
Glyn.

Room Tip: we had a lake view very quiet and peaceful

Many thanks for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.Plus the
added bonus of the sun ! The lake district in all its moods looks great but maybe I'm a little biased
Best wishes.

we spent our spring Bank Holidays at White Lodge Hotel. in a few words: great value, beautiful view from the windows ( ask for the room with a view) , 8 minutes walk to the Windermere lake, friendly owners and staff, delicious breakfast and clean rooms. true family atmosphere. would definitely come back. would definitely recommend to my family and friends. Wi fi was very slow however and 3G not working. otherwise very pleasant stay.

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.
