Stayed for 2 nights in a Club class room including breakfast. The check in was quick and efficient, the room was a large front facing double with a balcony. It was very clean, tea/coffee, bathrobes and slippers provided, fridge, safe, and plenty of hanging and storage space. The breakfast was served to the table, lots of choice and was hot really well presented and very tasty. We didn't have any other meals in the hotel, and didn't have time to try out the pool and gym, but we will be back.! Only 1 small negative comment, the car parking was a tad confusing, we didn't know all of the bays belonged to the hotel this could be made clearer with signage.
The hotel has lovely views of the lake. The facilities are up-to-date. It is well situated in the Lakes District relative to various places to visit and ease of travel to other ares of the Lakes (e.g., good bus service).
It was one of the cheapest options we found on expedia, but was a great place. The food was very good, the host is super friendly and nice.
Only downside is that it could be a bit warm, but a provided fan did the trick, and it is off of a busy trip so could be noisier than you are use to.
Room was clean and comfortable. Bed was comfy with crisp clean linen and plenty of pillows. Ensuite bathroom was equipped with a shower offering very hot water. As this is a room only hotel there is no reception so you get a key for the front door.
The hotel is in a perfect location close to many walking routes and hills around Ambleside. We didn't need to use the car for two days. Free parking is available off-site. The town offers restaurants and pubs for all tastes. Some are quite pricey though. Overall we had a great stay in a beautiful location.
The immediate friendliness and professionalism of the hotel's owners was apparent the moment I arrived with my needs and requirments dealt with, within minutes. I was settled in and comfortable before I knew it.
Much appreciated, especially the generously delivered local knowledge about the town of Ambleside itself.
An excellent place to rest your head after long days in the lakes and fells. Really good English breakfast and friendly people to start the day.
Only problem was parking but, public car park available 50 yards away. cost £15 for 3 days.

Just had three wonderful days in the Lakes, staying at the Dale Lodge Hotel again. Fabulous hotel, wonderful food, excellent facilities and lovely comfy room with tea-making equipment (and a teapot), biscuits and mints. En-suite facilities lovely with Molton and Brown complementary toiletries. Staff helpful and welcoming. Ideal location for exploring Grasmere, Ambleside etc. Had a lovely meal in Tweedies bar as well (their bar/restaurant). Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
