From the minute we arrived we knew this place was a gem. The 2 ladies working throughout our 2 nights stay were lovely and helped us map out our walks by lending us leaflets and books. We did a lovely walk and saw rydal cave so thank you for that! We were upgraded to superior room, which was beautiful. Lovely...

We had previously stayed in the superior dog friendly annexe rooms and thoroughly enjoyed our stays. This time we were travelling home through Ambleside after a break in Scotland and decided to book a last minute room for the night. Our room was in the main house on the second floor (as no dog this time) and was very clean,...

We booked at the last minute having stayed previously at the sister hotel, Lake House previously. Lakes Lodge is well located on the edge of the town and is convenient for walking in for meals and shopping. The room we had was a good size at the rear of the hotel with views to the hills. It was well appointed...

This was our 6th visit to Lakes Lodge & I think it was the best yet. We stayed in one of the superior basement rooms (I really recommended upgrading as these rooms are great). This time we were in Ruskin (room 17) and it has become my favourite. The beds in this place are incredibly big and comfy, the facilities...

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent, everything you could want to start your day. The hotel and our room were very clean and modern. Ideal for a short break in Ambleside.

Clean, comfy with modern decor. Staff pleasant and helpful. Parking places tight but adequate. Breakfast buffet varied but hot food left out too long so some of the offerings, such as the eggs, were well past their best.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are so sorry to hear that breakfast wasn't as good as it should have been. We do our best to keep the buffet stocked up and fresh at all times. We do hope that it hasn't put you off returning in the future.

Excellent location near restaurants & bars in Ambleside with good onsite parking. Well appointed bright rooms, comfortable bed & lovely big shower. Although breakfast is billed as buffet, all items brought through from kitchen regularly and certainly equal to a freshly cooked breakfast. Would certainly recommend and stay again.
