We enjoyed our stay. When arriving we were taken to a room with absolutely no room for even one suitcase. I was horrified, but we were quickly given a complimentary upgrade to a much larger room and were quite thankful. The breakfast was excellent. We also shared a nice box lunch on the trail prepared by Anne. We were most... More

Very clean and comfortable rooms. Bathrooms look fairly new,ours had the sink in the bedroom area. Friendly owners, chatty without being overbearing,clearly have a lot of experience in this business. Only suggestion: it would be nice to have a choice of herbal teas in the bedrooms.

Lovely, clean room with a very comfortable bed. Excellent full breakfast, friendly and welcoming hosts. Car parking available, too. Reasonably priced, good value and well recommended. Certainly not expensive for the quality of experience in this area.

We booked our stay last minute and were delighted with our choice. The guesthouse is located very close to the town centre, with walking distance to all shops, public houses, restaurants. Our room was spacious and elegantly decorated, with a compact but perfectly adequate bathroom with uh-so-lovely-and-warm underfloor heating. Wifi access was fairly strong and solid during both days of... More

Own car park, very good central location for Ambleside. Lovely room. Very good breakfasts. Only possible negative observation is no bottled water in the rooms. Some guest houses automatically provide which is a nice touch. However we will definitely stay there again.

Generally it's quite a good B&B. It locates in between the seaside and the town centre, and it's very near the bus station. Very clean and tidy. The hostess Anna is very kind and friendly. The for the single room I booked, i found it a bit small honestly, even though it's with a lovely view of the mountain. You... More

Really nice b&b in ambleside. Will definitely come back again. Free parking, near the town center and really helpful owner's made for a perfect stay. Pity they couldn't stop the wind and rain. Full breakfast was as good as it gets.

My room was upstairs facing the back. Lovely and quiet. Beautifully decorated. Plenty of tea,coffee, biscuits etc. Delightful breakfast room looking out onto the street. As much as you wanted to eat with a good chocie. Parking was a bit tricky but then it is everywhere in Ambleside.Lovely host.

Just back from a wonderful christmas break at the Wordsworth guest house. It was lovely, the room was spotless and contemporary, we stayed in room no.6 on the top floor with a separate sitting room, we would highly recommend this room. For breakfast we were spoilt for choice, the food was lovely. Both Paul and Anna were very welcoming and... More

We booked based on the positive reviews, and we were not disappointed. The room was spotless with everything you could need. As a previous reviewer we had the top room, room 6, with the separate sitting room which obviously in a previous life was a single/family room, one suggestion that room would make a wonderful luxury bathroom and the current...
