Pleasant staff. Very clean and comfortable. Would visit again and would recommend to friends.
The accomadation the English breakfast is second to none. This is a very comfortable place to stay andvery enjoyable.
needs a bit of decoration here and there
Its located just 10 minutes walking frin pier. Nice selection of restaurants near by. Spacious rooms and beds.
We stayed in the highest room in the Hotel.It was a large room with an extremely small bathroom no bath just a tiny shower.Avoid this room if u want any sleep after 6am the noise from the pipes with other guests getting showers or baths is horrendous.
Very helpful staff, good veggie English breakfast! All things considered very nice place. I did complain about the mattress on one of the single beds as the springs were on the surface and very hard and uncomfortable for my 7 year old daughter. The staff very quickly found a 2" mattress to put on top and problem solved however the mattress definitely needs to be replaced,room7 bed on right side at wall!!!
For the price of the Delux room I would have expected a modern suite. With that said the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were very helpful if a little over stretched.
Dated carpets and furnishings.
very welcoming staff great location
Unfortunately the facilities werent four star standard....shower head not adjustable ...inside radiator filthy upholstery torn window seals damaged lack of channel on t.v
Quality hotel, it was under re modernisation so the smell of fresh paint was lovely and welcoming. The staff were good, the bed was brilliant and the breakfast was also good. The staff were on hand to provide any type of breakfast. Boiled eggs and more toast wasn't a problem.
The room was unfinished with only one pelmet above the window. It would have looked better with pelmets above all the windows. However, the hotel was under re modernisation so that may not be the case when others visit.
The hotel is in an ideal location for lake Windermere and close to restaurants and shops. Staff can't do enough for you even carried case upstairs for us. The hotel is lovely and clean in need of painting but looks like in the process of being redecorated.
There was a decanter of sherry in room not ideal in a family room, would be better to have complimentary bottles of water.
location, staff, and cleanliness
The room was comfortable and clean. The staff were excellent and very friendly. The breakfast was good.
The bathroom was too small and there was no bath. The radiator was rusty and the waste bin damaged. The shower was very outdated and not easy to use. The room was noisy as on the main road. The location was on a steep hill which would not suit elderly people.
Our room, room 10 very loud!! The water pipes were running through our room and were making a such a noise at 5.30am!!
Large room Clean Nice breakfast nice staff
3 Floors up - no lift Dated decoration, in need of modernisation. Noise from road in front of property at night
Great bed. Nice room. Good breakfast. Andy the owner is a genuinely nice guy. Makes you feel at home straight away.
Parking a bit tight but that's all
Room 9 had great views of Lake Windermere! Breakfast was super and staff were friendly, polite and pleasant!
The privacy, close to.shops and water front, staff very helpful and pleasent food was excellent clean tidy room
Had no faults
Bathroom was modern and spotless.
Wifi is advertised as available in all areas but it didn't reach our bedroom.
Everything was perfect, especially the decanter of sherry
Wi fi was not too good
Location was very good, Good window views, Food was good,
Shaver point did not work, Bathroom fan did not work, Shower head would not stay up on rail, Towels to small, Deco was getting very worn,
The bed was so comfy clean white bedding great location on site parking the lady on reception spoke to us in town nice be remembered
small shower but did the job
The service for breakfast was very good and the breakfast was excellent. Staff were very friendly and we could come and go anytime no restrictions.
Although the room was clean the en-suite was tiny having the handbasin in the bedroom itself. The was decorating going on in other parts of the house but we think it needed a facelift all over.
I have stopped at the Lonsdale previously and it is normally of good quality with good-sized rooms.
Rooms apparently recently decorated but not to a great standard - door paintwork showed lots of hand marks, crack in plaster on wall. Ineffective lights in bathroom mirror so could not see reflection close-up. Shower head coming away from ceiling, showing 'rawlplugs'. Bedside lamps loose and not secure. Wet towels were left on back of bathroom door when we arrived at 3pm.
Location was excellent, breakfast good, staff very friendly and helpful.
Bed was really noisy, every turn made a massive noise, time for a new bed!
Near to the lakeside ferries which was our prime reason for the visit.(freinds 80th birthday party).
The bathroom and shower too small. The water in the shower was cold and the immovable shower head meant that my wife could not have a shower. This was partly the reason we booked out a day early.
Friendly and helpful staff. Close to centre of Bowness. Good breakfast.
Room too dark, very close to main road so room very noisy. A bit shabby. Black mould in the bathroom and fittings rusty.
