we booked a small room, and that's exactly what we got. It was at the back, so we had no problems with noise from the street. After seeing the carpark, we shelled out £30 for a weekly ticket for the pay-and-display which is adjacent. The room was clean, the bed comfy, the shower hot and the cooked breakfast very tasty....

Spent 3 nights in the Walmar. We were given a warm and friendly welcome by Malcolm and Doreen.The rooms were excellent, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, excellent breakfast, all food locally produced. Nothing too much trouble. Well worth a visit. Thank you Malcolm and Doreen.

We booked this fairly late into the season after seeing the good reviews. The B&B is clean and tidy but the room we had was extremely small (even by Parisian standards!) so we had no where really to put anything. Also we had a room on the top floor at the front and the road was extremely noisy from cars... More

Arrived back from Holiday in Portugal and on speck looked for a place to stay. Short notice but found this lovely place close to the town centre. Great room with comfy bed, even though the weather was somewhat hot and, to be said enjoyable for the time of year. Breakfast was exceptional, freshly cooked to order, excellent. Highly recommended but... More

The B&B was nice, friendly people & all very clean. Ambleside is a great location. However breakfast is only served 8.30-9.00am which for us early risers delayed us a lot every day. Also the car park is tricky due to being only 6 spaces, all blocking in each of the cars & is practically vertical, you'd best test your hand... More

The Owners were very friendly & helpful. Room was tidy and fresh. Only downside of this room is that it overlooked the car park at the rear. Breakfast was excellent with a good variety from which to choose which is seldom found in B&B's. Would recommend this hotel unreservedly.

Delightful and helpful owners make this a positive B&B experience. I liked that there were rooms available for one person. Although small, my favorite was tiny but with charming touches and a lovely view out the window next to my bed. The breakfasts were delicious and well-prepared. The best thing about Walmar is that is centrally located right around the... More

Walmar is a very cosy place to stay with very friendly owners. The single room was a bit small so I would go with a double if I ever go there again. Breakfast is very good indeed and you can count on the owners to make you eat something. Wi-fi can be poor sometimes, be prepared. Anyhow it is quite... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, slept well in the warm cosy room and enjoyed the lovely breakfast. Location was perfect we never had a problem with parking and the owners were delightful. I would recommend this B&B.

Stayed in the lakes many many times over the years and found yet another little gem to stay in. Location is spot on, don't let the parking situation put you off because in all honesty you should park up, have a break and forget about the driving, don't we do enough driving? The room was as described "small double" but... More
