Our family of 4 recently stayed at Lonsdale House in Bowness-on-Windermere. The location of the hotel was excellent, right on the main road into Bowness-on-Windermere, so handy for walking to all the shops and restaurants and the lake itself. The rooms are old with new and modern bathrooms. The rooms are not large but you expect that with English hotels. The rooms were very clean and serviced every day. The staff at this hotel were very welcoming and courteous. We were impressed in particular with the owner of this hotel, Andrew. His customer service was excellent and he was born to do this job. The room we were originally placed in was a family room (2 single beds and a double/queen bed). However, as we were in facing the main road and travelling with young children we found this room to be too noisy when the pubs closed late at night. The next morning Andrew "bent over backwards" to accommodate us and locate us to a differnt room which made all the difference, to our sleep, the following 2 nights. He was just such a pleasant person to deal with!! The breakfast served in Londsdale House was lovely and was extensive; the staff in the breakfast room were so pleasant. Parking is provided but the spaces are awkward (if you're not from England and used to small parking spaced). There is no lift with Lonsdale House, so it is good to be aware of this so you don't pack bags that are too heavy when contending with the stairs. Also, we had no luck with Wifi in either of the rooms we stayed in, but were offered to set our laptop up downstairs near reception (which we didn't get around to doing). Our stay was very pleasant and the Lake District just beautiful! I would recommend this hotel.
