Carol is really nice and friendly! There's the really good view outside the windows from their restaurant, relaxing breakfast environment.
Make us feel it's quite expensive for what we got. I've got serious allergy whole night with that bed.
The staff were really friendly and welcoming. The breakfast spread offered something for everyone and it was set in such beautiful surroundings just a minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside, would definitely stay again.
We have stayed here with friends on several occasions and would be happy to return. Our room this time was on the top floor and looked smarter and a bit more spacious than the one we have had in the past.
The cold water cistern (I think) was on the other side of the wall by the head of the bed and every time someone flushed a toilet in the night we would hear it fill!! Should be easy to fix.
Location was good and parking
Bit to expensive for what you get ! Decor is very cheaply done but clean, no one on reception after 6 pm Need to offer a cooked breakfast for the money your paying !!! we paid £115 for one night in a four poster room, I've had better for £85 a night and cooked breakfast.
Comfy bed and big room with spa bath.
Really central - didn't need to use the car at all during the day. Mountain walk's on the doorstep. Staff helpful, friendly and place lovely and warm.
LOCATION AND PARKING FACILITIES ARE ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO US SO IT WAS PERFECT. CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST WAS FANTASTIC.
THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WE DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT BRATHAY LODGE
Excellent continental breakfast.
we've been here several times previously stayed in four poster rooms. Nice and handy for loughrigg fell & zefferrellis Breakfast is lovely
furniture in rooms is a bit basic could do with a bit of upgrading (even though we were told it had been recently upgraded there wasn't much change) needs more luxury Toilet wouldn't flush
Very comfortable, clean, friendly staff, great breakfast.
Wifi could use some improvement in our room at the top.
A lovely combination of professionalism and personal care.
Location and public Areas
Would have preferred a good Walkers Cooked breakfast
Clean, great location and nice sized family rooms.
Staff charming and helpful. Buffet breakfast excellent quality, very enjoyable.
The Brathay is well-located...close to city centre, but far enough to be quiet. The staff was outstanding; very friendly and accommodating. We'll definitely return!
The location was great and family room layout was fantastic. Very nice to have both an internal entry as well as a balcony style open to the parking lot.
The buffet style breakfast left a bit to be desired. The buffet did have a number of options but if you looking for a traditional full english style breakfast (no eggs/bacon/sausage to be found) then you will be disappointed.
Good location close to village centre ..... Would re visit
Warm welcome from proprietor. Excellent breakfast.
Location and parking were good, friendly staff, comfortable room.
Hot during breakfast, a long way to the top floor!
