    Beautiful and lovely.
    Location location location. Set in beautiful grounds just outside of Ambleside. The owners were very accommodating and even upgraded us. We were travelling with our assistance dog and made to feel very welcome. The breakfast was lovely and our room was fantastic. Only slight improvement could be the shower needed more power. But still didn't detract from our stay.

    Good 6.0
    Great Location shame about the room.
    We had a weeding at the Daffodil Hotel up the road so decided to book this lodge. It is a very nice 16th Century building with nice grounds, however the rooms were a little bit dated for us and I have to say the bed was very uncomfortable unfortunately. The shower had very low pressure so it did take a while to shower. Overall the room was ok but if they changed the mattress to a more comfortable one and improved the shower facilities it would be fine. In regards to breakfast well this was fantastic and I really cannot fault this. The service was also great and the couple were also very friendly too. Nice location, great breakfast but shame about the room itself.
