The signage at this hotel says "Lonsdale House" and not "Hotel" which got me a little confused when we first arrived especially so when the taxi driver was not too sure the location of this hotel.
Overall, we had a good stay at the hotel. We stay at room 6 which has a 4 poster bed. This is the front room which faces the road but I did not think it was noisy. The location is good, just outside the main drag of Bowness but since Bowness is quite small, everything is within walking distance.
The staff were very friendly and Andrew was really helpful by telling us where we could go out on a Friday night !

We stayed at the Lonsdale House guest house for three nights following our wedding in April 2010 - the location is extremely convenient for local restuarants and attractions. The owner (Andrew) and his staff (particularly Pavel) were extremely welcoming, polite, friendly and basically couldn't do enough for us. We were also treated to a bottle of champagne in our room on the first night as we were newly married.

Breakfasts were fantastic - in fact I think we both put on a few pounds. This is a lovely guest house of the highest quality and we would love to visit there again - top marks!!

I travelled with my family (inc. two children under 10yrs), my sister and her children and my parents. We had a lovely weekend stay in the Lonsdale Hotel. The owner Andrew extended a very warm welcome and was helpful and very friendly both before and after arrival. All of the staff were also very friendly too. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated and the breakfast was great ! We enjoyed some great food in the evenings in a selection of restaurants and pubs only a short walk from the hotel. We returned to the hotel later in the evenings to relax with a drink in the hotel lounge, the children were kept entertained by the great selection of board games found in a cupboard in the lounge. There is a lovely little play park behind the hotel which the children enjoyed too. Bowness is a great base for hill walking and many other tourist attractions too. We enjoyed the cruise boat/steam railway trip and managed a walk in the middle of it too. The only minor downside was the limited parking and the hotel is located on a busy road; however, we didn't have a problem parking ourselves.

I would like to thank all the staff at Lonsdale House for a lovely stay. Me and my husband stayed there for 2 nights Bed and Breakfast. We had the Deluxe Room Lake View which was very nice when opening the curtains in a morning especially when the sun was shining, the room was very spacious and equipped with everything you needed eg towels, tea and coffee etc. It is ideally located near the Lake only a short walk down the hill which was ok with plenty of shops and restaurants to view on the way down. We would definitely go back and stay at the Lonsdale House Hotel again. Also i forgot to mention the breakfast was excellent plenty to put you on for the day.

We arrived a little early and only wanted to ask if we could use the carpark but as our room was ready the helpful friendly staff allowed us to check in. The room was clean, spacious and we had been upgraded to a lake view. Hotel location was perfect just a short walk to the centre of Bowness. The small bar at the basement of the hotel was well stocked and ideal to relax and unwind. The hearty breakfast next morning was just what the doctor ordered and set us up for the rest of the day. Rooms had to be vacated by 10:30 which was not a problem for us, although I do think this maybe a little early for some?

The thing that really makes Lonsdale House is the staff-they were so friendly and helpful and could not do enough for us. The rooms was perfect apart from one fact-it was on the road side of the hotel and was really noisy. With the window shut it was OK but as we had unseasonably warm weather and the heating seemed to be on full, we had to have our window open which did keep us awake initially. However in every other aspect, the hotel was perfect for us. The bedroom had an amzing 4 poster bed in and was clean and tidy with plenty of storage space-even some mints and sherry! The bathroom was very modern and spotlessly clean. Brekafast was excellent, and even though the hotel was full, it came really quickly, and the staff were endlessly polite and pleasant in answer to all our queries. There is a car park behind the hotel which is a godsend but it is quite tight to get in and out of, so no good if you have a large car. Its situated right in the centre of town within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and the Lake, although it is up a small hill!
