Overall a good stay, however this time around we felt a real lack of attention and welcoming from staff, particulary the rrception team who struggled to welcome us, shame the welcoming cookies have now gone, this was a lovely touch, it was also lovely to recieve a room upgrade, room and spa was lovely as always, food was good in the bar, however the elderly bar man from the main hotel bar was quite rude to us when we requested a red wine glass to finish our wibe in the room! Also during breakfast the dtaff were congregated around the entrance with one moaning loudly and constantly about another staff member, not good!!, we stayed for three nights and had a few niggles, being in the same industry we understand the lull and staff changeover at this time of year, however the readons for us returning are not consistent and we will not be back.

Ambers memory stay
We go to the lakes the same time every year as it is my daughters memory.The last two years we have stayed in the Burnside.The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are great.The staff are extremely friendly and the location is perfect for our needs.The spa facilities are brilliant too.It really is our favourite hotel in Bowness and we look forward to booking next year.

Relaxing stay
Had a fantastic stay in an apartment which was well stocked and clean. Only problem was the tv had terrible reception do pointless really and there were no baking trays available to cook. The spa was amazing and really relaxing.

Highly recommend Lakeside hotel!
We arrived about 11:30 but couldn’t check into the room until 3pm however we had a lunch in the cosy country pub attached to the spa. We were then able to make use of the spa facilities which are very pleasant. We booked one of the new suites with hot tub with a wonderful view of lake Windermere. The room was amazing and the floating king size bed very comfortable! We would have got a wonderful sleep if it wasn’t for a very amorous couple in the next room who were at it til 2:30am!🙈 in the morning we had arranged lovely breakfast to the room which has a £5 tray charge. On the whole a fantastic hotel with great facilities and great location. The recent upgrades have made this a top end 4 star hotel.
