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

Breakfast was great and the Malcolm and Doreen were very friendly and helpful. Location is great, right in the heart of Ambleside with a great choice of pubs and restaurants on the doorstep. Highly... More

We've stayed in many places in Ambleside and this is one of the best. Malcolm and Doreen are lovely people, the breakfast is tremendous, the rooms are very clean and spacious and the location is top. Looking forward to going again in July.
