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.
Lovely wooden cabin with great walks and view of windermere. Remindered me of my outward bound days here, 50 years ago. A practical place to stay in the south lakes
Nothing. You are part of an outdoor centre. So the breakfast is partly your own responsibility, but good and fresh. Bar good chatting with other guests on courses.
Location. Comfortable modern rooms.
Poor quality breakfast. Overcooked bacon, eggs cooked in vinegar, poor quality sausages, toast hard and cold. In short too much pre cooking.
The helpfulness and flexibility of the staff. Organising a group of rooms for a moving target of attendees who kept changing/cancelling would normally cause problems but in this case Rebecca made all of the changes I needed without any complaints. The rooms are very comfortable with good facilities. I'd take my wife there and that's the measure of a place.
Location is stunning
Quiet location, and serene setting away from the Bank holiday crowds. Lovely grounds and access to Windermere and Ambleside Town on foot. Very accomodating staff. Breakfast was buffet style and good quality. Room was comfortable, clean and nicely styled. Tucked away in the trees.
There was no valance on the Duvan which meant the base was visible. Also some packets of biscuits to go with the tea and coffee making would have been nice.
Good value for money. Very good breakfast. Beautiful location. Very suitable for those having an outdoor holiday.
Slightly institutional dining room.
Due to an early venue for a sports competition staff went out of their way to provide dining facilities outside their normal hours Beautiful lakeside setting with lots of wildlife.
Beautiful grounds, setting, location. On bath suite is good.
Very poor bed mattress. Small room with little shelving to put luggage.
The Scenery. The excellent facilities.
There was nothing I didn't like
The veiw of the lake was exellent. Room every thing you needed and lovely and peaceful. Would have stayed longer if possible.
Brathey Hall is situated in an idyllic spot. The location alone is worth the price of a room. Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast - buffet style - was excellent.
Facilities are basic and a little tired but functional.
Magnificent views from the front of the hall. Spacious lodges. Friendly and interesting reception staff.
Limited parking The wooden lodge apartments are not well sound proofed and noisy neighbours can be an early wake up call. The canteen breakfast is a little impersonal.
The estate is on the edge of Windemere lake with breaktaking views. We stayed in the scafel rooms (scandinavian style huts) which were absolutely lovely. They were very spacious with all necessary facilities and double doors that opened onto beautiful views. Highly recommended
No bath in bedroom....my only quarm
We stayed in one of the supreme loges! It was beautifully decorated and was all clean and new!! Recommend to anyone and would return
Lodge rooms Views Near the lake Walking distance to Ambleside Nice breakfast
The room was amazing! The area the surrounding views! Absolutely breath taking!!! Highly recommended
The room was very spacious!
Views across the lake with an easy walk to the shore. A large flock of geese on the field, swallows nesting in the roof and sheep grazing along the drive. You are so close to Ambleside and its excellent restaurants but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The perfect place for a short trip to the Lakes.
Beautiful views, basic accommodation but clean and comfortable. Great breakfast and helpful staff. I would stay again
Stayed in a Scarfell room overlooking mountains. For nature lovers these are great, saw lots of rabbits and even a deer! Very large, comfortable rooms. Very relaxing weekend, after breakfast we were able to walk down to the lakeside which was lovely. Breakfast was delicious and not greasy and help yourself. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were blessed with good weather which is always a bonus!
Location and room
Although we went for breakfast in good time the person in front had the last fried egg and we were told they wouldn't be making anymore. For the price I would have expected the eggs we liked. The dinning area felt a little like a hostel.
The room was spacious and very clean, the staff were very nice and the breakfast was good. The grounds were lovely and it was a pleasant 15 minute walk into Ambleside. We stayed on a Bank Holiday week-end and it was nice to be out of the busy town.
It was a little difficult to find.
room was beautiful with a lovely view overlooking Ambleside. We loved the wood walls, decor etc and the feeling of space in the room. Great bathroom too.
We didn't have a car and so had to walk in and out of Ambleside which was a 20 minute walk, but I have to say it was worth it to escape the town and enjoy the feeling of space.
