We are sat in the bar area of The Lonsdale House on our 2nd visit and we can truly say it's great to be back. Being in the trade ourselves we are always happy to get away and have someone look after us and these guys know how to do it. the rooms are great room 9 is ours! so don't as for it! lol the breakfast ample and excellently cooked, the bar area relaxing and location of the Lonsdale perfect with good local attractions either way from the front door, Windermere to the left and up the hill, Bowness to the right and down the hill. Thanks guys for a great stay, see you again soon.

We only stayed for one night, we booked a deluxe double, which happened to be the lovely room which is show on all the photos.
The room was really clean, the bed beautiful.
The hotels location is excellent , a 2 min walk into Bowness or 1 mile from Windermere itself.
We saw very little of the staff due to our brief stay, but when we did meet them at Breakfast and on arrival, they were very friendly and happy to let us leave our car in their Car park unitl 1pm on the day of departure.
Overall we had a great time and will certainly visit the hotel again.

We have just returned from a four night stay and have to say this was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The room was beautiful, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was second to none and the staff were excellent - nothing was to much trouble. It was our 10th wedding anniversary and we will definitley be returning in the near future and will recommend to friends and family.

Our stay was £94.00 per night. The room (Room 8) was poor, with a very small shower and toilet, nothing like the pictures on the web site, whether we had just drawn a short straw? The skirtings behind the beds and bedside cabinets were very dusty, and the complimentary mints were welded together as if they had been there for ages. The mattress and pillows need updating as they were 'very lumpy'. On a plus side the breakfast was very good with a good selection to suit all tastes.

We have just arrived home from this great hotel where nothing was too much trouble,Andrew & his staff were 1st class hosts & we will definitely be returning in the near future.I would definitely recommend the deluxe family room.Bar prices were also reasonable.

Room Tip: Family deluxe room was big enough for the four of us,with plenty of room.
