We stayed overnight on a very wet walking weekend. We booked three double rooms and all of the rooms had an extra single bed or two. The rooms were clean and spacious although the furnishings were a little dated. We had two labradors with us and they were able to stay in a separate entrance hallway in our room. The...

We stayed here for 2 nights, we picked Lonsdale house purely because we saw good reviews and liked the decor! We had a very good stay. Our room was massive - it was the family room that can sleep five! We also had a massive bathroom with tub and shower, I probably could have lived in that tub it was...

Visited her with my family for one night. Hotel staff were very friendly, rooms very clean and would definitely stay here again. The family rooms are spacious and there is parking around the back. The breakfast was lovely too.

Friendly staff, willing to help out as much as possible. Unfortunately the room was a bit small, bathroom was difficult to manoeuvre around as the shower were so small, 4 poster bed was 'ok' - nothing special. Worst night sleep I've ever had in a hotel before due to pillows that felt like bags of rubble. High bed frame made...

Stopped here this weekend as a group of seven in three rooms. Absolutely first class service and friendly support from all staff. Great breakfast served both mornings and the rooms and location are excellent. Stayed here several times now and will definitely return. Dog friendly too - many thanks for another great stay in the lakes.

The house is within easy reach of bowness and it's shops and restaurants. It has free parking and the staff are very helpful. However the decor is nice and quirky but bedroom no2 is advertised as a premium room. It does have a four poster bed but it is a bit grubby. Not premium at all. The carpet is stained...

We stayed here as we were attending a friends wedding further in the village. This was the perfect location as it was literally 5 minutes walk away. On arrival we met the manager who was fantastic, so welcoming and even allowed us to choose our room as there were two different ones. He went through all the details of the...

Firstly, the hotel was ideally situated with just a short walk to the centre and lake. The parking at the front and rear of the hotel was extremely handy as we've stayed in places in Bowness before that have had none. The rooms were cosy with extremely comfy beds and the bathroom had a powerful shower - just what you...
