Lovely little hotel! Made to feel very welcome. Comfy room, with extra touches such as swan shape towels, biscuits and a bottle opener. Nice hot shower, plenty of towels and bed was comfy. Breakfast was cooked very well, poached eggs done great (this often lets a hotel down for me!), and really happy, friendly staff. This is how a business...

It's the second time we have stayed at St John's Lodge and I cannot praise the place enough. The hotel and rooms are spotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. The breakfast options are superb with something for everyone and of a great quality. The staff at St John's Lodge are very welcoming and attentive. It's the first place I would...

The location is near the bus stop, and not far from the Bowness. Quite convenient to reach the cinema, Tesco, cuisine shop and cruise pier. The room is clean and comfortable, make us feel at home. The breakfast is gorgeous. We never expect to have such brilliant breakfast in a hotel. Highly recommended!

I can say that out of all the ones we have stayed at this was by far the best. Excellent location between...

What a great find. I booked this at random for a birthday weekend get away. Friendly, clean, hot shower, and the breakfast was second to none. The added touches of a birthday card left for my wife, and a really comfortable bed.

We were given a warm welcome and given good advice on local walks, bars and restaurants. We stayed in room 5, which was very spacious and had a large bathroom with a great power shower. There is a vast choice of breakfast but we stuck with the full English and we chose well - it was lovely ! The location...

Nice warm welcome when we arrived, the room we stayed in was no5 and was a lovely big room with plenty of storage and a big bathroom, breakfast was delicious and again a lovely warm reception. The location is very good but parking is limited. It only takes 10 mins to walk down to the main area at Windermere. We...

Lovely room, super friendly staff & amazing breakfast choice! We would recommend to everyone. The lodge is ideally situated, a nice distance walk to the lake & shops, restaurants. Alternatively, turn right out of the hotel & you can do a walk to Orrest Head & see the whole lake. The room was modern & had a nice bathroom. We...
