  • "Excellent location beautiful lodge."

    Lacked shelving in main bathroom no room to store makeup. As x4 women all bedrooms also lacked storage for makeup maybe this is something you could look at? Also we need a lights near mirrors please x Lights near double doors kept tripping electricity. The online repair service was awful and I could not leave feedback as no link was attached to my booking. I did phone helpline only to go through to voicemail when I did find the number. However I went up to reception and the night reception man fixed issue. No scissors in kitchen either please replace. Otherwise we loved it and would definitely go back. Please consider well behaved dogs x Kind regards Debra

  • "We had a fabulous stay in Bramblings by the lake, property was clean, well equipped and very comfortable ."

    The view from the lodge was amazing and allowed us easy access to the lake with paddle board and kayak. Would definitely stay again however was very disappointed not to be able to use the hot tub for more than half of the holiday as it was not maintained daily so was unusable we waited to see if the guy would come but after another day of no show we called company who were quick to sort this out and managed to get someone to come fix it. Completely understand this was not the fault of the owner or the company we hired the lodge from but did result in us paying extra for a hot tub property that we couldn’t use for the whole holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that there was a problem with the water quality on your arrival but glad that the company rectified this as soon as you informed them. We are glad that you were able to enjoy the lake and the facilities it provides. :Lake District Lodge Holidays Owner Relations Property Owner

    It would be helpful if there was a cabinet or shelving in the bathroom as there is nowhere to put anything.

  • "Two friends and I have just enjoyed our second stay in Bramblings by the Lake."

    Whilst appreciating that the Lodge is very close to trees that shed leaves, seeds etc, this time when we arrived the outside table and balustrade were somewhat dirty. I would have appreciated if sometime had been devoted to give the outside area a wipe over and sweep up, I felt I had to do this before we could use the outside facilities, It would not stop us from rebooking the lodge in future as we enjoyed all other facilities and were very comfortable there.

    Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to hear of your disappointment with the outside of the lodge, had we been made aware during your stay, we would have attended to resolve the issues. We will ask our Maintenance Team to ensure that our high standards continue to be met. We are pleased that you would return for your 3rd visit, and hope to welcome you again soon.

    Sykes promised a maintenance person who never arrived but we worked out how to turn the heat on to the tub so we could use it Saturday afternoon, we were so disappointed that we left Sunday. Sykes were dismissive of our complaint and issue and stated terms and conditions blah blah blah we paid a lot of money for the weekend and it was spoiled. The lodge is beautiful and immaculate but we booked it for the hot tub and location to celebrate our special day and for reasons unknown to us the lodge wasn't ready and we didn't enjoy our stay as we should have.

    Thank you for your feedback. We were sorry to hear of the issue that you experienced with the hot tub, whilst we endeavour to have the hot tub ready for a guests first night, this is not something that we can guarantee. Our Maintenance team were able to advise that the hot tub would be ready to use by Saturday. Our Customer Relations Teams were also helping make sure that you were kept up to date. We hope to welcome you back to the Lake District. Property Owner

  • "The lodge is in a fantastic location and that is what you pay for."

    The view of the lake from the lodge must be one of the best. However, the lodge needs a few additions included to improve the holiday experience, the main one is the availability of WiFi. The lodge totally depends on the parks wifi which is currently not available across the park. The use of the smart tv is only via mobile phone data so in my view this should be made clear in the lodge details before you book!! This impacted our holiday as my daughter and son-in-law were on holiday from Australia and needed WiFi to keep in touch with family back home. The hot tub needs some TLC as it’s definitely showing wear and tear. My husband kept hitting his head on the extractor fan but I am only 5 foot and my problem was the fridge was too high! There were lots of spiders and spider webs around when we arrived so had to remove those with the hoover. We didn’t use the park entertainment facilities as you have to pay extra and we preferred to go out. The location of the lodge is definitely its main asset but next time I would consider spending my money on a good hotel with a lake view.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit your valued feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed the location of your accommodation and view of the lake. We are also grateful to you for bringing the less positive elements of your stay to our attention and will look into the points mentioned as a matter of urgency. The Wifi is, unfortunately, out of our control and the responsibility of the park. We would very much like to welcome you back, should you decide to visit the area again in the future.

    The lodge had everything that we are used to at home. Beds very comfortable too. Washing machine did not work as we tried to dry our wetsuits and swim wear. We reported this and it was going to be attended too. Also, a few of the jets in the hot tub were not working either, which will need some attention. Apart from these couple of minor issues, we would happily book again.
