Quite a few faults with this place, unfortunately. The car park situation is a nightmare as there are eight spaces for guests but only the last two cars have the ability to leave unimpeded - you may well get trapped by other cars and be unable to drive out. This is immediately obvious upon arrival but the host says it... More

I arrived in early mid 2015 and enquired politely about room availability. Response - " we don't do kids". Door slammed, with angry response. Horrible chap, would actually feel uncomfortable staying their even it he had asked us in. Quite hideous experience. Avoid...

The service is crap, receptionist unfriendly, rude, not polite and very unprofessional! Especial the one today around 7pm, who was very rude to guest who came asking for information. I'll never stop in this hotel again or let anyone I know staying there!

Stayed at this apparently 4 star B and B for two nights. Agree with other reviews with reference to parking. It is free but not ideal. This is the perfect environment if you want the Boarding School feeling. We booked a Large Double but the room was tiny as was the shower room, wouldn't like to have been given a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on arrival were met by owner who showed us where to park. Were then shown to room 3 on the 1st floor which extremley clean but a little on the small side including the bathroom. My one main gripe is the small window allowed to take breakfast which is 8.30-9.00!,on holiday you dont want... More

Lovely small B&B right in the centre of Ambleside. Easy access to town and lake by foot and breath taking walks by foot and car. Only negative would be the short time frame for breakfast and sometimes uncomfortably quiet dining room. Breakfast was delicious. Friendly couple who ran it with maps and advice to offer.

Stayed 2 nights in April. Great location for town centre. Warm welcome which included a brief outline as to the arrangements for parking and breakfasts. Room was spotless and included everything which had been stated at the time of booking. Breakfasts were excellent - good that local produce being served in a pleasant and unobtrusive manner. Would definitely stay here... More

This place does what it says on the tin. We found it last minute on our way north to Scotland and needed a stopover. The People who run this B&B do it right and as long as you are respectful they look after you so well. We were greeted by the lovely gentleman owner. He directed us to our free... More

Stayed here for two nights in January. Lovely little B&B with a perfect location in the heart of Ambleside and very welcoming and caring hosts. The breakfast was really good with a nice selection. For the price would definitely stay again

Very welcoming, comfortable and cosy place to stay. I booked the small single room and although it is small, still enough room to relax in and with the comfy bed and clean warm bedding it was even nice just to sit in the room and watch TV the odd time. Rooms cleaned regularly and breakfast served quickly and of a... More
