The owners and staff were extremely helpful, warm and friendly.
The length of stay was too short.
The staff we met were extremely friendly & couldn't do enough for us - breakfast was fab & my 2yr old granddaughter certainly enjoyed it although thereby have been more Rice Krispies on the floor than she ate!
Wasn't too keen on the four poster bed as felt it took a lot of light from the room. although the room we had was clean I did notice when I had to retrieve something from under the bed the area were the posts finish was quite dusty but I think that's just me being picky! The showers door rubber was hanging off & a large crack in bedroom wall but I know Andrew said they were re- decorating.
Bathroom needs upgrading.
The location and breakfast. The staff were excellent
The showers in all of the rooms that we had were not of agood quality, small and the awater was cold.
Location breakfast view friendliness of staff
Bar was shut at 10.20 was hoping for a nightcap !
Location was good , staff very friendly , very home like place
Car parking very tight , I feel I paid a bit to much for my room priced at £100 for one night , we could hear other guests having showers and using the bathroom .
Room Location Staff Cleanliness Breakfast Price
We loved the quaintness of the rooms-4 poster bed and all! Staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the full English at breakfast was the best we had our entire trip!!
Our room faced the Main Street, so there was a lot of noise from traffic and people going by.
Room was very nice and clean perfect location for town center and places to eat and drink staff where very helpful and friendly would stay at this hotel again
The rooms were very nice and comfortable. Nice touches in the room, sherry and sweets! Breakfast was lovely, nicer than 5* hotels we have stayed in. Staff were friendly and helpful. Conveniently located for Bowness too. Bar available too, which is unusual for a B and B.
Bathroom needs some attention, rusty fittings, mould on ceiling, but this would not put me off staying again though. Bar prices were a bit expensive and some bottled drinks nearly out of date. Again being picky here.
Ample free parking with traditionally serve English breakfast beside choices for the menu. Room are clean with good facilities.freindly staff. Near to many attrctive site that Windermere can offer.
Some of the furniture are old- need to be mend.
Bed in room 3 very comfy. Breakfast good and vegetarians well catered for. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Room 3 very noisy.
Four poster bed Breakfast Staff
Tiny shower Small room
Room was average
Location was perfect. Breakfast was pretty good too
Bed wasn't the comfiest. mainly because the pillows were pretty hard and i ended up with a headache because of it. we didn't really sleep much overnight and both got up for breakfast worn out. Could do with a few improvements to make it comfier really. lil bit disappointed
Conveniently located near amenities. Also within walking distance to World of Beatrix Potter and Lake Cruise jetty.
Poor internet connection.
Lovely bed and the room is cute .near the lake as well
Room good staff friendly but other residents didn't care about others banging doors ect
En suite needs major up dating dirty ceiling cracks in between tiles rusty radiator
we arrived early and shown straight to our room. Room 9 on the top floor with views of the Lake, lovely. 4 poster bed, very comfy. Sherry and sweets, very lovely. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was delicious, cooked fresh and the scrambled egg was the best ever. We will definitely return.
Staff were very courteous and friendly, room was spacious and breakfast was well cooked and tasty.
Listed in booking.com as ‘no pets' however, during our 2 night stay, we were aware of 3 dogs in the hotel. Staff confirmed that they were 'pet friendly'. Very limited parking,
You could not fault the location. 5 minute walk from the lake which was perfect The staff very helpful and polite and tight but adequate parking
Unfortunately the accommodation was very dated and shabby in places. the bedroom was dusty with marked, old carpets. The curtains were no longer cream and the nets were hanging off from behind them. There was an awful smell of damp in the ensuite which had caused mould to form on the ceiling due to lack of an extractor fan. There was a huge amount of dust and fluff in the grid of the radiator which was a little off putting. Also damp bed sheets. Such a shame about the upkeep and cleanliness as everything else really was great.
The owner and staff were great. Always helpful. We might go back to the same area in 2 years. If we do we will stay at Lonsdale House. Food was great and the location close to everything.
Wi Fi didn't work on the top floor. But when we returned for our second stay, we were on the first floor and Wi Fi worked as it should.
Location breakfast staff
Only thing was the bathroom could do with a update.
The hotel is in the process of re-decoration and is being done in a very stylish and unique way. The staf were friendly and helpful, the rooms comfortable with some nice touches - like a glass or two of sherry!
Parking space was limited and quite hard to access - the downside of the central location
Our stay at the Lonsdale was fantastic. We were greeted at the door and shown to our room earlier than check in time .Our room was beautiful you could see lake from there, it was very spacious and clean . Would definately stay here again 10 out of 10 .
