Holly Lodge Guest House
Ranked #26 of 107 Windermere B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 January 2013

Have just come home from spending 2 lovely nights over new year with Dianne at Holly Lodge. Our room was lovely (room 3), very comfortable bed, lots of hot water in the shower, toiletries also provided. Contrary to a previous review our room was anything but cold, very warm indeed including through the night when we decided to lie on top of the bed as we were both too hot. The breakfasts were of a very high standard indeed, even on our last morning when Dianne was on her own cooking and serving her guests. Good luck to her in the future, she deserves it, a lovely hardworking lady who works very hard ensuring the comfort of her guests.

The lady who runs the B&B needs to give herself a tap on the back. She was a really polite and kind lady and everything was made clear to us upon arrival. Ww took full advantage of using the Spa facilites at the Olde England Hotel. The room was tidy and clean. The breakfast was gorgeous and restaurant standard. I would happily recommend this guest house to anyone and I'm very keen to return again!

We stayed at the end of October and had a lovely stay. Having stayed at various B&Bs in Windermere; Holly Lodge stands out for cleanliness and service. The owner was friendly and as we stayed with small children we found her to be helpful and accommodating, not only at breakfast time, but when returning from day trips etc throughout the day. The family rooms are spacious and nicely decorated and the breakfasts offered a wide variety of choice (including for children) and were good quality. Overall a lovely stay-would definitely recommend.

Holly Lodge is a brilliant place to stay and provides everything you need to have a great weekend and more besides!! I booked the weekend away with my partner to celebrate our anniversary and we had a great time. Dianne greeted us on our arrival and was very welcoming, she also advised me where we could go for a lovely meal. The room we stayed in had been recently decorated and had been done to a very high standard and the breakfast was also very good - in my opinion these rooms are worth a higher price! Overall we had a great time and some of the walks we took from Holly lodge resulted in breathtaking views - I will be back to the lakes and Holly Lodge again soon!

Had a wonderful night in Holly Lodge - room was nicely decorated, very clean and bed super comfortable. The owner was really helpful and friendly, made us feel really welcome. It made a nice change to have somewhere comfortable to sit in the evening when staying at a B&B, especially as I was with my young daughter - the lounge has big, comfy sofas and is very tastefully decorated. Make sure you have a cooked breakfast - they're delicious! We'll be returning to Windermere and Holly Lodge.

My 5 and 2 year old are an early risers so when on the first morning at 7 am there was no heating on and freezing in the room I rang and kindly asked when the heating would be on they said sorry but the heating didn't go on until 8.30am. I was hoping that after my speaking to the landlady the following morning this would change but again there was no heating until 9am and it was freezing in the room! When we were leaving we asked about it and they said they needed to try and accommodate the majority well who on earth wants to get up in the morning and have a shower before the breakfast when it's absolutely freezing in the room??? The were putting the heating at 9
Am when everyone was having breakfast and by then was boiling!!! Not happy and wouldn't recommend going there during cold season with small children! What a shame

It is clear that the proprietors are making a determined effort to place Holly Lodge towards the top end of the Lakeland B&B market. They have created very comfortable, good value, efficiently run accommodation in the centre of Windermere. Our room was well appointed and a pleasing attention to detail placed it well above normal expectations. Breakfast was well prepared to our individual requests/requirements. Overall a fine experience that merits another visit.
