"The hotel could perhaps do with a makeover especially in the entrance hallway and the room we stayed in only had single glazing so was a little bit drafty. The staff were very friendly and efficient."

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Stay in the top Windmere rsturant which offer home accommodation that was recently refurbished
  • Convenient location: 15 minutes' walk to Lake Windermere
  • Bowness-on-Windermere is five minutes away by car; Ambleside is a 15-minute drive away
  • The restaurant is recommended by The Observer's Jay Rayner


The Lamplighter Dining Rooms is a family-run property in the town of Windermere. It dates back to 1865, and is built from Lakeland stone. 

Windermere, "the queen of Lake District lakes" (Lonely Planet), is a 15-minute walk away. Take a short hike up the Orrest Head for superb views of the lake, the fells, Morecambe Bay and the Pennines. Those travelling by car can visit Bowness-on-Windermere which is five minutes away, while Ambleside is a 15-minute drive away.

National Trust-run Hill Top, the house Beatrix Potter bought with the royalties from her books, is a 30 minutes' drive from the hotel. Dove Cottage, the hometown of poet William Wordsworth, is a 20-minute drive away in Grasmere. During the trip, guests can opt for a guided tour of the house and gardens, and visit The Wordsworth Museum, which displays his original letters, journals and poems.

The hotel's restaurant serves traditional British dishes, and is a North West finalist in the 2019 Restaurant Awards. The Observer's critic Jay Rayner is a fan of the "glorious" bone-on rib of beef and a "magnificent" cauliflower cheese, which are served at Sunday lunch. The bar stocks local ales, wine and more than 15 varieties of gin. 

Apart from its comfortable accommodation, rooms showcase unique Victorian decor with striped wallpaper and polished-wood bed.

Not the warmest of welcomes and only limited parking. Food however was excellent evening meals and a good choice for breakfast. Rooms in a good location. Not overly luxurious but ok for the price. Very dog friendly and many in the restaurant bar area which isn’t for everyone. It isn’t that big enough to escape two big labs! Very good for dog lovers not so great if you aren’t!!

Overall decor and furnishings. Large bathroom which was cold and had plain glass window, additional electric heater in bedroom to cover lack of heat from radiator, breakfast was bland. We did arrive early and could get in but there was no one around, wasn’t sure the bell we rang a couple of times was getting through to anyone but eventually attracted a member of staff, just wanted to ask if ok to leave car, which it was.

Other Comments
The reason I wouldn’t go back is that we would like to explore other parts of the lakes rather than go back to the same place.
