We Initially just planned to go Zeffirelli's but then decided to stay over and go out walking too. I highly Recommend Rothay House, its a 3 minute walk to Zeffirelli's and the cinema by the park is even closer. From Rothay house we could walk across the road, through the church yard and through the park to the bottom of... More

We arrived on a cold rainy day on the second week of our honeymoon and it was a nice warm welcome in more ways than one! When we got up to our room, it was cosy, the bed was super-comfy (just what you need after a long walk in the lakes!) and the bathroom was really nice. The tea and... More

I stayed here with a friend this last weekend, was very reasonably priced and was in a perfect location in Ambleside with free parking. The room was clean, warm and lovely bathroom with products that were not tested on animals. My vegetarian cooked breakfast was nice and there was cereal, warm croissants and fruit available also. The hosts were very... More

Rothay House is perfectly located in Ambleside in the Lakes District. Easy walk into the village and a lovely B & B. Well appointed rooms and bathrooms and the best breakfast we had in our travels. Plenty of choices including fresh fruits, yoghurt and several options for a cooked breakfast. Darren & Debbie are friendly and helpful owners.

We arrived friday night until sunday. The lady was quite sullen, certainly not welcoming or friendly. I asked for an earlier breakfast at 7.45 as I was doing a course all weekend. It was agreed but she certainly was not happy about it. We felt we were upsetting the norm and it was not appreciated. A bill was left on... More

Just a one night stay before we headed off to Langdale campsite. Really good location and off street secure parking. Darren was very welcoming and friendly. The room suited our needs for the one night, the bathroom was very clean and modern but we felt this made the bedroom feel a little dated, though it was well equipped, clean and... More

A nice modern B&B with up-to-date bathroom and furnishings. Darren was very welcoming and the rooom had all the facilities that we needed for our stay. This is a great B&B in terms of location, within walking distance to the main town centre and ample parking. If you are a on your own or a couple, this is an ideal... More

Very welcoming b&b. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. I am an awkward vegan and was pleasantly surprised to find a great selection of fruits at breakfast, not to mention soya milk provided especially for me!
