We've stayed at Brathay Lodge for the last 7 years, sometimes twice a year and have recommended to family and friends who have also stayed and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is the perfect location with plenty of parking and a wonderful welcome from Trevor, Karen and Carol. Having just returned home today from another wonderful stay it is a real home from home with attention to detail being absolutely spot on. Tea, coffee and biscuits always replaced daily in the rooms and towels as and when required. Hot water aplenty and a shower that is absolutely brilliant after a day in the hills or on the water and the breakfast is a really great alternative to the cooked breakfast offered by so many other establishments. It is also perfectly placed for all the wonderful restaurants that Ambleside has to offer with all of them being within easy walking distance. We've stayed in some luxury establishments around the world that don't always manage the standards that Brathay achieve, so thanks very much and really looking forward to our return in March 2014.
