  • "Perfect location on the edge of the lake, stunning views of Windermere."

    Quiet, spotless and fully equipped with everything needed for our stay. Easy check in/out. Staff in the nearby holiday park centre very helpful with suggestions for walk and activities. TV is limited so if you're planning some indoor time take dvd's. We spent a lot of time on the balcony, morning coffee feeding the robin and evening hot chocolate watching the sun go down. Our first visit to the Lakes and definitely not our last.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in the English Lakes and did many walks and activities. We look forward to welcoming you on your return to the Lake District. Property Owner

  • "The view of the lake from the lodge and especially from the large decking area was fantastic especially at night watching the sunset."

    The beds were so comfortable and the clean as was the whole lodge and I was surprised at how well insulated the lodge was from noise both inside and out. We had a few days of rain and chill during our September visit but the heating system made for a very snug stay. I would highly recommend this lodge and wouldn’t hesitate to return. Thankyou to the owners for their thoughtfulness.

  • "MVL is one of the nicest lodges we have stayed in."

    It has a great location and everything you'll need for a lovely stay. The only thing I'd say is they need to reduce the size of the Horse Chestnut tree that's next to the decking asap. Good chances of us returning next year that's for sure. PS, I don't know what Sykes Experience is as I booked through LDLH so just gave it a 5.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are so glad to hear of how much you enjoyed Marina View Lodge. We are sorry for the confusion regarding the experience when leaving your feedback, as LDLH is now part of the Sykes family, it reflects the LDLH overall experience. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Lodge was great as it was last time we stayed in Marina view and we would recomend this lodge ."

    The only issue we had was down to the site management as some lodges had groups of people all mail and all female who just wanted to party and left the grassed area by the lake littered with empty drinks bottles park staff had to clear up after them ( thanks ) .

    Thank you for your review. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed another visit to Marina View Lodge. We are sorry to hear you were disturbed by guests in other lodges, unfortunately this is something outside of our control and we can only apologise for any inconvenience caused. We do hope you will return to enjoy another stay at Marina View Lodge. Property Owner

  • "The Lodge was great,the park was great the only thing we did,t like was the dinning area/clubhouse in the complex ."

    We could't sit down to a meal because there was a disco going on,it was to loud we could't eat a meal in peace with all the noise ,so we left. I have never been to a holiday camp where the entertainment room and eating room were joined together,they should be separate so people can eat a meal in piece ,plus tow of what we ordered they did't have. I know this is not your fault and Its not a negative point against your lodge. The people who run the park need to address this problem ,we can't be the only ones who like to eat a meal in peace. I am not talking about background music,this was some sort of show going on and very loud. As I said before ,the lodge was great,location was great,park area was great.

    Loads to do. We went walking, boating, golfing and also eating and drinking. Used the bus stop outside the park a lot to get around. Also walked into Ambleside a few times. The site is clean and well maintained. And safe, with security patrol at night. The lodge was perfect too, except for one drawer in the kitchen which had crumbs in. I guess it had been missed by accident as the rest was immaculate. Lovely and warm in the lodge. Bathrooms basic:clean but small. Showers a bit feeble, especially if the other one also in use, or dishwasher on! Towels lovely a nd fluffy and bedding soft. Sofas comfy too. Didn't use the swimming pool so can't comment.

Our 2 children loved the stay as much as we did and enjoyed playing on the grass area in front of the lodge and feeding the ducks every morning.
