The view, comfy bed, heated floor in ensuite, good service, good position for Lake and short walk to Ambleside
No draw storage for clothes, only two hangers in wardrobe and car park very tight
lake house is a great place to stay
only one snag in the anex rooms the blinds let light in at the sides a extra curtain would be nice
everything was very good.
Nothing not to like - only wifi wasn't a bit intermittent
Lake House is a lovely hotel. Our room was no. 10 at the top of the building and the view over the lake was delightful. It was very comfortable. There are plenty of places to eat nearby but if you don't want to go out there is the option of supper in your room with a bottle of wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day break.
We couldn't fault it!
The B&B is in a really good location, situated at the Waterhead just 2 mins walk from the lake. We paid for a superior double room so the room is really spacious, however the bed is extremely high and small (queen size) for 2 people. It is has a pretty view facing the lake.
Staffs has no knowlege around the hotel. They didnt know the convinent store is just opposite the road, didn't know where she would recommend tourist to go...etc. Poor breakfast service, there was only one waitress serve all tables while hearing lots of giggles from the kitchen. You can see her rushing between tables, training on manners and serving are lacking as well. E.g. Two beautiful window side table were not cleaned up therefore we were asked to sit elsewhere, however when another couple came in she promised she would give them a table onces been tidied. Then when another couple came in, she told them they can't take any dirty tables because she promised to give previous couples. How about us?
Welcoming staff, extremely helpful and pleasant. Room very large with huge comfortable bed. Breakfast delicious. Lovely view from bedroom window.
Good location - close to boats etc. for Windermere. Room in separate annexe was quiet and private. Breakfast was excellent.
No Wi-Fi in room.
Comfortable spacious room, clean, friendly staff, good breakfast, well located for lake Windermere
Located on a hill top with amazing views. The hotel is elegantly perched on a hill top and has a great feel about it. Could not ask for anything more! Would definitely stay there again. Great place!
Facilities not cleaned during our four night stay.Only housekeeping was daily making of bed and replenishing of tea/coffee making facilities.
Position of hotel Comfort Friendly staff
For us outdoor access dog suitable rooms were perfect - large, comfortable and well furnished. Breakfast was good watch for the special - often smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Some rooms have a lake view - only had to walk 100 yards to be on the banks. Is a walk into Ambleside, though wasn't a problem for us. Enjoyed food at Sister restaurant the Regent Hotel with 10% discount on food.
Some breakfast items often included at B&B like fresh fruit and yogurts were not there. Overall good though.
Excellent choice for breakfast and plenty of each item
the location and comfort
Very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast. Great location.
Plumbing noises at odd hours.
Room and accommodation. Superb. Very friendly staff
Gbp 7 or soap ???
Liked the lovely view from our bedroom window (room no. 3)
Didn't like the fact that a proper chef (cook) was not employed to do the cooking (breakfast and snacks). Our room was comfortable enough but had no drawers or shelves in the wardrobe for our clothing.
My value marks say it all
I would not recommend it if there were any faults to comment on.
stayed in one of the lodges round the back of the main hotel, the bed lovely and comfortable the toilet was massive with a bath witch was a plus for me
not much of a view, could do with sound proofing the ceiling could here the people in the upstairs every time they moved , but WON'T stop me returning
From the warm welcome, to the last goodbye, and everything in between. Travelled with my 84 year old mum-in-law, stayed in The Hideaway for easy access in and out of car. Our 3rd time here, mum in law loved it and can't wait to return
Nothing not to like about Lake House!
Only thing wrong no resturant at night,but used sister hotel the Regent and enjoyed the food also made welcome with our small dog, other night we spent in and had a supper in the room, the staff where all very friendly.
My husband and I have stayed at this hotel before in one of the garden rooms, away from the main building! They have a large bedroom and bathroom, with table and chairs on an outside patio area! So quiet and peaceful, wonderful. The only downside, lots of steps so not suitable for anyone with mobility problems ! The breakfast was excellent, lots of choice and freshly cooked!
The turn into the drive can be a little tricky when travelling from Ambleside! Apart from that nothing!
A lovely B&B, tastefully decorated, friendly, cheerful staff in an idyllic setting- what's not to like?
Nothing comes to mind.
Not quiet a lake view
Location of hotel at Watershead Bay
The bedroom and bathroom needed a little more care with cleaning correctly
