Booked for my daughters birthday. Amazing place , lodge was excellent very clean and well located Would definitely go again


19th September 2020

As a family we love the lakes and each time we visit we like to stay somewhere different. Ramblers Rest is situated in a brilliant location of Bowness and a short drive from Ambleside and Grassmere and whilst on the whole the lodge served a purpose for the week I was disappointed on the cleanliness of it. When booking I requested a travel cot for my 15 month daughter (I had intended on bringing my own but I was very optimistic thinking I could get all of our belongings into a golf so assumed the travel cot would be fine), what we were left was disgusting; a travel cot stinking of damp and covered in live mould. I appreciate you take the risk when requesting these items with a constant flurry of guests but this is appalling to expect a child to sleep in this. Needless to say she didn’t sleep in this. Another point was when we arrived we had a laminate left stating the lodge had ‘been cleaned and sanitised to the governments standard etc’, yet on the rim of the bath were the remains of previous guests’ body hair, an anti bac wipe got rid in one wipe. I found this on many surfaces, the only surface clean was the kitchen counter. Whilst I wouldn’t recommend this lodge to my friends and family I wouldn’t let this put you off booking as the lodge did it’s job for a week but maybe just don’t expect too much with cleanliness, I clearly did (but then we are going through a pandemic)

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear of your concerns regarding the cleanliness of the lodge. You made us aware of the travel cot on your departure and this was removed immediately. It was not acceptable, and we are sorry. Had you let us know soon after arriving at the lodge we would have dropped another one off straight away as we certainly would not have expected you to use that one. Ramblers Rest comes with its own travel cot and needless to say had not been checked or used for some time. Your concerns have been discussed at length with the housekeepers and we are sure there will be no further issues with the lodge. We are sorry that your lodge experience was not to your satisfaction, this is not what we like to hear, and we shall do all we can to make sure something similar is not repeated. As you love the Lakes and the location of Ramblers Rest we do hope that you will consider returning in the near future, it will be a pleasure to welcome you and we are sure you will have a very enjoyable stay.

The Cabin had a musky dog smell throughout so we had to buy air fresheners. We found used ear buds and dirty socks in twin room with also litter behind sofa . The double bed is so uncomfortable we cut our stay short because it was impossible to have a good nights sleep . The cabin is compact but has everything you need just spoilt by the issues above .

We are sorry to hear a few things were not quite to your satisfaction and you cut short your stay, Liam. The mattress on the double bed was replaced at the start of the season although noting you find it uncomfortable, we will check for any signs of damage and advise the lodge owners accordingly. We shall also speak with the housekeepers and draw their attention to a few things that had been overlooked. It is most unusual for this lodge and we are sorry. We do hope that you will consider returning for another stay as Ramblers Rest is in a great location and is a delightful holiday retreat.
