A great place to be for my first stay in the Lakes !
We were allocated one of the rooms on the ground floor at the side of the lodge and it was great - easily accessible, clean, warm and although it was at the side of the main road and by the car park, it was still very private.

Excellent
Stayed on a business trip but had packed waking boots for a late afternoon trek into Langdale. Had stayed once before in 2009 and hotel was just as good. Clean and well looked after this is a great place for business or pleasure. No cooked breakfast but don't let that put you off as what was on offer was great and a much healthier alternative. Plenty of parking which is a bonus in Ambleside. Booked again for my next meeting in two weeks time!

Very pleasant stay. Good choice of food for the continental breakfast. Only place where we have stayed where you are able to take hot food takeaways back to. Rooms clean and tidy. Staff really friendly. Would stay again.

Brathay Lodge
We received a very warm welcome from the proprietor and staff. Our room was very clean and homely - a little small, but it was well laid out and the roomy bathroom with super shower and jacuzzi bath made up for it. Breakfast was lovely - well prepared and lots of choice,including healthy options. The location was perfect - very near Ambleside town centre with a car park. The guest info provided in the room was very helpful and comprehensive. The only downside was the lack of a lift, but the proprietor and staff were more than willing to assist with luggage.
