Absolutely loved our stay - Location is ideal short walk from Ambleside yet far enough away to benefit from stunning unspoilt views - Accomodation was lovely and modern and plenty of choice at breakfast - Staff are extremely helpful and friendly - Loved our stay can't wait to return!
Stunning views in the morning and at breakfast. We were staying in what I can only describe as a cabin which was very private and quiet. The room had lovely facilities and breakfast was delicious! We were well taken care of. Will definitely stay again if in the area.
This place is great if you're not looking for somewhere luxurious and appreciate your surroundings and the great outdoors rather than a fancy hotel room. The location of this place is a little out of the main town - but the views from Brathay are breathtaking. The rooms are clean and basic - and with no complaints. I will stay here again without a doubt. If you're going outside summer you'll need a torch to walk into town - on the road. Breakfast is self service with hot and cold options and an ample choice.
The staff are very pleasant the views are magnificent and the lodges are amazing and very clean.
The room was super,with a lovely view of Ambleside. There was loads of room, and the shower room was excellent with a great shower!!
They had run out of vegetarian sausages on the second morning!!
Views and the room
The room was a bit cold but the staff got me a additional heater so all in all it wasn't too bad , mind you it was below zero outside and very windy
Warm and helpful reception. Room was big, clean and simple with wifi that actually worked. Very good breakfast i.e. bacon didn't seem anemic; or the eggs, steamed. The surroundings are beautiful. We wished were staying longer
A good sized room with a lovely view. Breakfast was good.
The room smelled musty and was freezing. The radiator only came on when you were in the room and your key fob inserted in the slot. Therefore the room really didn't warm up adequately for our stay. I can only assume that the room hadn't been occupied for some time. The shower was mouldy all around the bottom, not in keeping with the clean Scandinavian theme of the lodge. Disappointing value for money.
The views and fact you can go on walks right from the house was wonderful. Also loved the fact we could sit in the lounge.
Rooms a bit cold. Perhaps need to switch getting up before arrival.
Location good and rooms were amazing, the staff were very friendly nothing was too much trouble for them, will definitely be returning soon!
Really good lodge style room with ex view central for Ambleside graspers and Windermere area a few minutes drive from pubs etc .room etc 9/10 other facilities are not a hotel standard
Be aware food served in separate building and you will have to walk there for breakfast which is canteen style but good quality.so in bad weather you have to walk a short distance outside.would expect dining room and evening meal facility for £120 it cost
Pretty much everything was great. The room, the bed, the bathroom, the breakfast, the grounds and location.
Not the cheapest place in Ambleside. The lodges are wood-built and very echoey - so expect to hear everything from the other rooms (especially if you are on the ground floor!). It's a bit of an unlit trek to Ambleside, and some of the roads are narrow and have no pavements.
fabulous room in a ski chalet with lovely views. very friendly staff close by to Ambleside but far enough away not to be noisy
Some people mayn't like the buffet style breakfast (reminiscent of a uni caff)(i rather liked it actually). very difficult to book as very popular
We loved our room in one of the Scandinavian lodges. It was quiet and the views were stunning.
There's nothing I didn't like.
Large room, comfortable bed, great views from room. Hot shower. All expected facilities, TV, WiFi, tea making in room. This is a 'no frills' set up but good accommodation, service and breakfast.
The room took a while to warm up
Great location overlooking lake, basic room and facilities, cracking breakfast, would stay here again
The rooms here were lovely, so beautifully presented and cosy in their own log cabins. The staff were very friendly and location excellent, very good value I would recommend this venue to anyone.
Although the reception area is somewhat hostility, once in the room (we were in one of the new lodges) the accommodation, comfort, facilities and particularly the views are all excellent. The hall only serve breakfast, but this was an all you can eat, full English buffet style. It is a good walk into Ambleside, about 20 min or so, but pleasant enough in the summer. Just do not be put off by the hostel style environment of the main buildings. The lodges are excellent.
The reception are can put you off if you don't give it chance.
Accommodation, staff, facilities and food were all as good as they were the first time we visited. New path down to the lake is a welcome addition to the extensive grounds, too.
There was nothing we didn't enjoy.
Nice and relaxing just what we needed
Nothing no complaints
Spacious comfortable room Lovely view Very comfortable bed and bedding Quiet Good breakfast Very helpful staff
Stunning views and modern and spacious.
Early check out at 10am
The location is beautiful, with a wonderful view of the Lake. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast excellent.
