Score from 235 reviews Superb
The quirky decor and the personal touch from the staff. Whether you need recommendations for restaurants or walks, they will help you out. They catered for dietary requirements and have luxuries on hand when you need them too.
Friendly people and very clean.
Every part of the hotel. Truly amazing
Nothing. Not a bad part at all
All bedrooms are bespoke designed. Bathroom and room are very clean. Lots of parking available . The breakfast is absolutely first class. Freshly made orange juices and fresh fruits is provided. All the home cooked breakfast is really first class with many selections. This is more than just a B&B, it’s like staying in a 5 Start hotel . Not to miss when you visit lake districk
breakfast was very good
room was a bit cramped
We loved the whole package of rum doodle, style, comfort, check in, super breakfast and extras. A glass of wine on arrival. Home made biscuits, cafetiere with local coffee in your room. Fresh milk available.
Fantastoc room and breakfast.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rum Doodle - excellent service, great room - out hosts couldn't do enough for us would recommend a stay at the RD Christmas cake and tea on arrival, Christmas biscuits in room and a small bottle of champers!!!! Very handy to walk into either Bowness or Windermere for an evening meal - plenty of choice but would recommend booking. Will definitely visit again. Batteries now fully charged!!! Happy New Year Regards Caroline and Richard
best and most comfortable beds & sheets ever!! Very good breakfast wonderful decor super helpful Emma & Gregor
Emma was an excellent host. The room was wonderful, full of character.
Milk in the room would have been more convenient.
Roll top bath Gallons of hot water and bubble bath! Breakfast Arrival home-made cake and tea Quiet location
Poor lighting No dressing table
The room was cute and well decorated - loved the bathtub. Excellent breakfast in the morning.
Really friendly staff ,nice room & great location :)
Owner was welcoming, and the breakfast was really good
Although not a fault of Rum Doodle itself, high winds caused the windows to rattle giving a sleepless night
On site parking was useful and we used public transport to local areas. Quiet area yet within comfortable walking distance of shops and amenities in either Windermere or Bowness We stayed in twin bed room on ground floor - VERY comfortable beds! Warm welcome with coffee and home baking Both Gregor and Emma took time to make us feel welcome A great find!!
Very noisy in bedroom 1, the bathroom was dark and dingy. Rooms not in line with photos on web.
Lovely building, quirky touches, welcomed with coffee and cake, good breakfasts and great location. Great attention to detail.
Shower a bit weak, wifi didn't work on my side of the room but hey you're on holiday. Go out and have fun instead.
Attic suite gave us plenty of space, large bedroom, separate lounge with the TV and tea making facilities and a separate bathroom. Nice soft towels and there were a couple of dressing gowns provided which was a nice touch. Very nice breakfasts. The placee is situated probably slightly closer to Bowness than Windermere, but as there is only a mile between the two, it's easily walked in either direction. Bowness probably had more interest for us in the evenings than Windermere as a far better selection of restaurants (we thought).
Main car park is very steep with a tight drive in, not too good for a largish low slung car like mine, more suited to something smaller or a 4WD. To be fair though, there are 4 easier to park spaces the other side of the property. Windows in the attic suite bedroom start low, so you need to keep the blinds down when changing.
Very welcoming host. Lovely rooms and the breakfast table in the window was fab, as was breakfast itself.
Lacklustre shower. The bathroom mirror needs re positioning as it's too low for anyone over 5ft 6" to use without continually stooping.
The staff, the rooms, the whole feeling of the hotel
Very pleasant hosts, excellent accommodation and good food. A really lovely place to stay. Thoroughly recommend anyone to stay here.
Nothing it was all great
Warm welcome . As said before - excellent breakfasts . B & b owner very helpful and friendly . Beds very comfortable and all very clean -all together a very happy stay .
Purely personal - as a person with difficulty getting up steps it would be helpful if there was perhaps a wooden rail as opposed to metal to be in keeping with house .
Fab, quirky, stylish decor. Very friendly staff. Home from home atmosphere and superb food. Couldn't ask for more!
The place was decorated really nicely, the coffee in the room was yummy, the bed was super comfy, the staff were really helpful, great to have off road parking, breakfast was great and so easy to walk to Windermere.
Our bedroom could do with repainting, but only a really minor thing. The place is fab!
