If you are making your way to the Lake District by driving your own vehicle, take note of these Lake District hotels with on-site carpark:
The Royal Oak Inn
Though the Royal Oak Inn is small as compared to other Lake District hotels, its true worth goes beyond its structure. From the Royal Oak Inn, the piers of Bowness Bay and Lake Windermere are already within sight. From the piers, you can ride a steamer boat to cruise through the lakes. Royal Oak Inn is also part of walking tours such as The Dalesway Walk of Alistair Wallace and The Lake to Lake Walk.
This Lake District hotel with on-site carpark has two single rooms, one en-suite single room and several en-suite double rooms. The rooms are equipped with items for making coffee or tea, television, hair dryers and Wi-Fi access. In terms of food choices, Royal Oak boasts of its Full English breakfast and sumptuous dinner meals. They can also alter their meals according to your dietary requirements and they only use fresh ingredients from local farmers in their meals.
When in Ambleside, you can stay at the Lakes Lodge. This Lake District hotel with on-site car park offers rooms for groups of any size. The rooms give travellers a peek at life in Ambleside while they relax at family, four-poster or king size beds. Each room has a television and a DVD player while ice machines can be used any time of the day.
Lakes Lodge also has a breakfast room which serves Full English breakfast and other continental dishes. You can also make a cup of coffee for yourself throughout the day using their coffee machine. However, Lakes Lodge is a non-smoking hotel and additional charges will be given to those who will smoke.
Rothay Garden Hotel
The Rothay Garden Hotel in Broadgate, Grasmere has gone through several redevelopments in recent years. In 2008, it opened as a four-star hotel with suites, lounges and a bar. In 2011, the Riverside and Garden Suites were added and a new 2 AA Rosette restaurant was opened. Rothay Garden also has a new spa facility and improved landscape.
With their new additions added to the fact that they are one of the Lake District hotels with on-site carpark, the Rothay Garden Hotel is one of the highly regarded hotels in the Grasmere and Ambleside area. However, only children who are at least five years old are allowed to stay in Rothay Garden.
