Very welcoming, cuppa and lovely piece of homemade cake on arrival. Good location - 10 min stroll down to Bowness. Beautiful and clean room. Lovely breakfast with lots of choice (our room could accommodate breakfast in the room which was great!)
Lovely owner emma the room was so clean lovely bed and linens amazing breakfast
The hotel is located midway between Windermere and Bowness.The host were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble.Lovely accommodation and brilliant breakfast
Good reccommendations of places to eat. Liked the quirkyness of Rum Doodle, and the cake on arrival!
Minor moan, but, although there appeared to be plenty of parking, the access was awkward and we did have to park out on the road one night.
Nothing was too much for this wonderful place. Friendly and warm welcome with cake and coffee. Super kind nothing was to much trouble first time had guests and we're hooked
The top floor was lovely and cosy, the bed was comfortable, and even though it was the attic space you still had enough room. The staff were very helpful and kind, and it was easy to find and park.
Very warm and welcoming staff. Excellent location and accommodation, breakfasts out of this world.
The breakfast is outstanding, especially being able take in your room at a specific time, service was excellent and owners both very friendly. 10 minute walk to bowness and same to Windermere, bed very large andcomfortable
Room 2 jungle was really nice, but a little on the small side, the bed is lovely and big but limits the room to walk around. En-suite was a little small but facilities very clean and all worked well, shower very powerful.
Stayed in the attic suite, which was spacious and comfortable. Good value for money!! Staff are amazing and will go out of their way to ensure you have the best stay. Overall a very pleasant stay and not a bad thing to say!
The location,and the breakfast,also the staff and the free complimentary tea n cake,all in all a very warm welcome.The free car parking was a big bonus.
The noise coming from the upstairs room! The outdated bathroom,but there is on going refurb i think,also It was very hot in a very small room.
Everything was just wonderful, from the lovely warm welcome to the friendly goodbye and all the iddy biddy bits inbetween made our stay more than perfect! :) The room was brilliant, exceeded our expectations..who wouldn't love a cosy and comfy 'princess' four poster bed? Quirky, beautiful and spotless. The theme and attention to detail in our room and throughout the hotel is a refreshing change from typical B&B's/guest house. Breakfast served to us in our room was a total treat, we felt so spoilt each morning after gobbling up our delious and plentiful meal. My partner and i found rum doodle to be in the perfect place, ideal for exploring both Windermere and Bowness. Emma and Gregor should be bursting with pride of their rum doodling tastic hotel!! We had a great time in The Lakes and honestly our stay here made it that little bit more special. Perfect, perfect, perfect!
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
