“Lovely, friendly and helpful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

We stayed at this hotel for a week and found the staff extremely helpful and professional with nothing was too much trouble. Our bedroom was cosy, met all our requirements and was extremely clean as was our ensuite - there was hot water daily!!!
The breakfast each morning was very substantial and there was always plenty of coffee and toast if required.

My daughter and I stayed in this charming guest house when following up our local ancestry. It was spotless and had pretty rooms, with the top rooms having lovely views. It was in a great position for easy walking to all lake and town facilities in Bowness and there is ample parking. Best of all was the incredibly warm welcome and the continuing interest in our visit, which made us feel special. Prices were very reasonable, so overall the White Lodge was excellent value and we will never consider staying anywhere else when visiting again. Thank you.

Room Tip: Ring up and talk about your requirements - all staff are so helpful.

We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2011. The location is fantastic, the rooms maybe slightly small, but they were extremely clean. It was a quite and peaceful guesthouse, so it was easy to relax! The ladies in the guest house couldn't of been nicer, both were extremely warm and friendly. We'll definately recommend the White lodge to friends and we'll be staying again! :-)

The hotel was really clean but the rooms and bathrooms were very small.
In our opinion it was a guesthouse and not a 4 star hotel.
A plus was the free parking.

I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay as a large proportion of our business is repeat custom. We have never said that we were a 4 * star hotel. We are registered with the Cumbria Tourist Board & advertise ourselves as a 4 * guest house. There is a sign at White Lodge's front door showing our 4* guest house accreditation. Surely you would have noticed that there is a huge price difference between a 4* star hotel & a 4* guest house. I believe also that you were given a special rate.

From the moment we walked through the door we were welcomed with a smiling face and a friendly tone. We were taken to our double room which was roomy, clean and had a fresh smell of linen. There was plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, free tv channels and the en suite was more then adequate for what we needed. Even though the hotel is situated on the main road and our window faced this it was still quiet and you could not hear loads of traffic etc. The bed was that comfortable that both myself and my partner would only need to lay on it for 10 minutes before we were zonked and each night was a great nights sleep. Every morning we would be greeted with a courteous Good Morning and a smile before we were immediately offered coffee and a tasty cooked breakfast. The English Breakfast, cereal, yoghurt and fruit options were more then enough to see us through until dinner. Everyday I was able to conduct my business at a table within their bistro area and able to use the free wifi they have available, I was even regularly offered coffee and biscuits. All staff were extremely friendly and more then accomodating to any specific needs we had. We spent 2 weeks there and enjoyed the hotel immensely. We would definately return on our next visit and would recommend to anyone.
