The brathay lodge was really a lovely place to stay for a night. We stayed in a family room which was more than big enough for 2 adults, a child and a travel cot. Rooms were really clean and the continental breakfast had a really good choice.

Received a really great welcome and the room was really clean, spacious and nothing was too much trouble. We were fine with not having a cooked breakfast as it is so close to lots of options in town. Can understand peoples comments on this but read the offer when you book? We had a room only rate and would go...

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights and found our room comfortable although it was a trek to the top floor and I'm thinking less able guests might find that room a bit too much of a climb. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and the property is well located just a few minutes walk...

We received a lovely welcome from the staff on arrival and they were very helpful taking us to our room. The hotel was very clean throughout. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable. If I could give a 10 for cleanliness I would. Unfortunately our room was on the top floor and there was no lift, but it was worth...

Had an excellent stay here. It was clean, warm and had good showers and wi-fi. The breakfast was a particular highlight - wide range of fresh ripe fruit and yogurt amongst other things. Very friendly staff.

Clean but dated. Very overpriced for the quality provided. We only had toiletries for one guest. No cleaning materials for the bath tub, so one person had to shower. No telephone in the room. The room was more like an American motel room overlooking the car park so felt quite vulnerable. Guests in room above very noisy, came in late...

We stayed here a few years ago and came back with our children this weekend. Lovely pleasant staff, clean, spacious but still cosy room. Ideal for Ambleside, our children's view 'the best hotel we have ever stayed in!' Hopefully we will be back soon.

Very nice stay for two nights. Super breakfast. Really nice staff. Perfect position in Ambleside. Family room decent size and split so kids could do their own thing. Car park really handy no hassle to get into town.

Lovely big room, huge bed and spacious bathroom. The view from the room is stunning especially at night when the church is lit up. The lodge is situated in a prime spot near the shops, restaurant and pubs. The breakfast was lovely with a good selection. I would definitely recommend Brathay Lodge.
