Had loft room with 4 poster bed and a lovely view
Bed excellent. Wifi excellent. we were in one of the rooms at the back of property, perfect if you have a dog. very helpful staff.
Lovely hotel. We were in the Hideaway suit room 14 very clean and fresh.
Anyone walking past could see straight into our room so had to keep the blinds closed all the time.
Very helpful staff, great breakfast, comfortable rooms, located right next to the Lake and ferry pier
Hideaway rooms were lovely and private. Great views. Al little more attention to detail in cleaning would be good.
Fabulous room with lake view. Very clean and spacious, helpful friendly staff - recommend
We found it difficult to turn down the heat
Excellent staff & hotel, just minor issues with bathing / shower facilities...
Was in room 4 , it had a bath & shower head on a hose, there was no shower curtain or means to hold the shower head so you had to face the tiled wall to shower yourself down or kneel , water all over the floor, the days of sharing bath water have gone !!!!!!
The bed was comfortable. There was a good selection of DVDs to watch. The bathroom was clean and in good order. The staff was polite and efficient. The breakfast was excellent.
The windows in our room did not close properly and were single-glazed, which I initially found quite distracting with the traffic going by. The tv remote did not work properly with DVDs and there were no instructions. A chest of drawers would have been useful, even if they were located in the wardrobe. There was a bit of a musty smell about the room, which meant we kept one of the windows slightly ajar most of the time...fortunately, the heating in the room is excellent, so we weren't cold despite the snowy conditions.
Everything was perfect couldn't have asked for a better location room or food.
Nothing to fault or critisise
Warm friendly and cosy. Food was good.very clean. 10 minute walk to ambleside
everything was good nothing to dislike Great rooms plenty of space Large bathroom cleaning was excellent, staff all very pleasant and good breakfast!!
Staff were brilliant.
The location of the hotel is very nice. Had lovely walk down the road facing lake.
From the comfort & size of bed & room, the cooked breakfast & staff were a delight & the overall stay excellent. I shall definitely recommend & shall without doubt return for another visit.
The entrance to the car park is very narrow.
Lake House is in a great position overlooking Lake Windermere. It appears to have been recently decorated and the rooms are very clean. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast ( overlooking the lake) was very good. A table for dinner can be reserved in the Regent Hotel just down the road and that also was excellent.
Fantastic location & Excellent B&B. We requested a room with a lake view which we were given. The staff were polite, friendly & helpful. The room was fabulous - large, clean & very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely too. Lovely stay all round, would definitely recommend.
Nothing to dislike.
Good location Nice room Nice view Nice breakfast
Breakfast was fab, but we loved our room, room 3, stunning view with the moody Sky and bright moon over the lake, a real treat to stay in and watch movies. Great character, and a real warm welcome. Thanks all x
Can't think of anything in particular.
Location of the Hotel is great over looking the Lake and just a short stroll into Ambleside
Not being housed in the main building seemed impersonnel and going for breakfast each morning in the pouring rain
Ambiance of peace and tranquility
Everything you need & friendly staff plus great food.
The views from the fabulous Hideaway room of Lake Windermere. Short walk to Ambleside.
Didn't get served breakfast immediately on the last morning and other guest came into the dining room and were served before we were even noticed. Waitress did apologise for this oversite.
We enjoyed our stay very much and will be staying again.
Location was excellent, room had lovely views of the Lake and the hotel was very clean. I would recommend Lake House to all.
We stayed in one of the hideaway rooms and it was simply perfect.
