    The hotel is excelent but the bedroom was alongside a very busy road and very noisy all night . If I stayed there again I would only stay if I was offered a room at the rear of the property

    Everyone was very welcoming. Nothing was a bother to them and gave complementary coffee and biscuits when we came in after a tiring day.The breakfast certainly set you up for the day.

    Superb

    The location of the hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the Lake where you can catch a boat to see other parts of the Lake and different attractions. Ticket deals are avaliable for boat trips and attractions, which can save you money. The Hotel is on the main street so is only a short walk from shops and places to eat, which is handy for evening meals. The Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious with a nice view of the Lake from our bedroom.

    The Hotel does not have a resturant, it would have been nice to eat at the Hotel on the first night rather than hvaing to go back out, but due to the Hotel being close to restuarants it was not a big issue

    Very relaxing place to stay, very friendly and helpful staff who have extensive knowledge of the area and activities. Child friendly with a relaxed lounge and bar area. A selection of DVD's are available should the weather keep you inside.

    car parking can be a little difficult.Hotel is on a quite busy road,but there is parking at the rear of the hotel for about 5/6 cars.Apart from that I would certainly recommend the hotel and definatly stay there again.

    Very good

    The staff are very helpful, and will suggest restaurants in the town that are good. Any complaint regarding the room is dealt with immediately. The small bar has very good prices.

    The en suite was extremely small, the shower door didn't close properly and the shaver socket didn't work when we arrived. In general, the decor is "tired" throughout the hotel. A room overlooking the road is very noisy all night as there is no double glazing.

    Very poor facility given the rate paid, advertised as a deluxe family room which it certainly was not. More like a b&b than a hotel. I doubt the room had been properly cleaned for 12 months.

    Fabulous

    We are a family of 3, our son being only 4 years old .We stayed at Lonsdale House for just 1 night during spring bank week and found it to be very inviting, the owner (we assume) went out of his way to accomodate us, as did the rest of the staff. There is a cosy bar area from which you can borrow DVDs-a god send if you have children to occupy, especially with this great British weather of ours! We had a "Delux Family Room" which was very spacious and comfortable, however the ensuite was very small, but fine for us as we were only there for a short time. Would definatley stay at this Hotel again, probably quite often as we are only an hour and a half drive away.
