Location, car parking. Friendly hosts, splendid breakfasts. All in all a very comfortable stay in Windermere.
From the minute I booked I was so impressed with the couple who own the rum doodle, what a lovely couple, rooms immaculate, location was perfect, breakfast was one of the best, would defiantly recommend it :)
Great night sleep and great breakfast. Loved Emma and Greg.
Bathroom faciities were comfortablebut could be improved. Rooms a bit small but comfortable.
Very friendly helpful hosts. A B&B with much more charm than a hotel chain.Loved it, would definitely recommend this place to friends & family.
The owners were very friendly and the food was excellent.
Beds were not very comfortable.
Location was perfect, fabulous choice of breakfasts with something a little different on offer. Freshly cooked, the hosts couldn't do enough.
Friendly welcome with a glass of wine. Lovely house and our room was nice and cosy. The breakfast was really good. The owners were very helpful with advice of where to eat and go for nice walks.
Friendly staff and a warm welcome with tea and cake Comfortable rooms nicely decorated Great location Fab breakfast
Slightly dated/dark bathroom
The warm and friendly welcome with tea, coffee, cake. The friendliness of the staff. Brilliant location, guest house was spotless, presentation of rooms was excellent. The breakfast was superb. The owners caterer very well for anyone whom has special dietary needs. Over all a wonderful experience and we will be back. Many thanks to everyone we will be back. Best wishes. Aubrey & Friends.
There was nothing not to like. It was just great from start to finish.
Excellent hosts, very welcoming with the tea and slice if cake on arrival. Decor was beautiful, you felt at home and relaxed. Bedroom was nice too. Breakfast was cooked of a high standard it was perfect. Would love to bisit again
Not a big problem, but when i went to make a drink in our room for first time the teapot had cold tea in it, obviously forgotten to check when cleaning room prior to us coming. And water pressure in shower was not great, but other than that theres nothing else
friendly hosts and staff, tasty breakfast
fairly cramped room, the noise from the neighbors above and a kitchen behind the wall in the morning, only 1 hour for breakfast and seats in the dining room is smaller than the guests. Quite far from the center of town
Spacious bedroom with 4-poster bed. Excellent breakfast served at table in bay window. Interesting books and other items in bedroom.
Access to rear car park not good for low suspension car's.
Great decor, warm welcome and fantastic breakfast.
Bed a little too soft for me but I'm being picky. Other than that lovely place.
We were made welcome as soon as we arrived and enjoyed a very tasty piece of cake and hot drink. The room was comfy, maybe a little bit smaller than expected, but more than adequate for our stay. The Cumberland breakfast was excellent. We would stay there again.
Beautiful house very clean, had lots of little quirky additions to make the house unique.
Friendly staff, Lovely building and very quirky decor, Breakfast was fantastic.
Nothing at all, we loved our stay at the Rum Doodle
Good breakfast ,beautiful hotel,helpful staff.
VERY accommodating staff. We didn't arrive until 11pm but nothing was a problem. Lovely Antique furniture and pleasingly quirky décor. Delicious home baked cookies on tray. Very comfy mattress. And the best bit ...... BREAKFAST! Truly delish! Basically it is like staying at a friends home, it has a real home away from home feeling.
Two things, and they weren't a big deal overall. The ensuite in our room was rather dated (but I checked the website and some of the other rooms have a lovely bath in them). The bed was rather odd as it was two beds pushed together to create one king bed, with king bed sheets. It was also rather creaky! But as I said, not really that bad!
Excellent location near Bowness. The 4 poster room was lovely - airy, bright, comfortable, modern furniture but with a 4 poster bed!. The breakfast served in the room was a great touch. .
Bathroom very small & shower pressure not very good. The bed itself quite comfortable but extremely squeaky. Issues with the WiFi & was unable to use at all.
the owners were soooo wonderfully helpful friendly and genuinely happy folks to be around:-) the rooms were tastefully designed with adorable personal touches that made us feel as though we were truly staying in someones home whilst also having the freedom and comfort of a B&B establishment:-)
Staff very helpful, bedroom comfortable and warm.
Noise from other guests, coming in late at night as room by front door.
This is a lovely B&B. welcome drink on arrival, very high quality food and helpful staff with excellent advice for tourists. We will be returning :-)
No marmite at breakfast. If you are a lover, take your own ;-)
Lovely staff Lovely location
Rum doodle is an amazing quirky B & B with amazing staff and great amenities. Location is also very handy. We had an amazing stay and will definatly return again, just for longer next time.
