This is a great base to explore the lakes. Very near to the shops and restaurants. They provided a comfortable room giving us the choice of two, we stayed on the ground floor,breakfast was nicely cooked. Only stayed one night but wish we had stayed longer.

This B&B does not look great on the outside but is a very nice B&B. Quirky rooms with 4 poster beds. Staff are excellent and could not be more helpful. Parking at rear of property is difficult. Great breakfast.

Booked the Lonsdale House for my girlfriends birthday and she loved it. We booked a deluxe double room which had a four poster bed which was very comfortable and sherry and sweets upon arrival which was a nice little touch. The staff were very welcoming and warm and the breakfast was also great the only bad thing i could say...

We recently stayed a night here and had a lovely experience. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were allowed to bring our bikes into the reception area to keep safe overnight. The room was wonderful with a view towards the Lake and the bed was very comfortable. We did not opt for breakfast at the hotel so cannot...

Lovely staff, good rooms and amazing breakfast. Staff are helpful and show a love for their job and customers. Rooms are relaxing and dvds can be found for a night in and for children. Highly recommended by a young couple away for a quiet birthday weekend.
