Great stay
Just loved both the location and the ambience of Brathay Lodge. The staff was extremelly welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and well maintained. Loved the jacuzzi bath tub as well as the tea pot. Breakfast was generous, tasty and consumed in a lovely dining room. Thanks for a great stay.

Pretty good
Welcoming hosts. Nice rooms. Although at 120 a night they should be. Very thin walls and poor sound insulation meant any sound from other rooms was unfortunately heard. Great location. Continental breakfast.
