Went to meet friends for a meal Saturday night in Ambleside. Rothay House was a great budget choice, with excellent parking and close to town. A warm welcome from Darren and warm, clean accommodation but a little on the small side but manageable. Breakfast was perfect, good produce cooked to a high standard and nothing was too much trouble. Would... More

We just got back a couple of hours ago but can't wait to leave a review for Debbie and Darren at Rothay House. What a lovely, clean & comfortable b & b. Breakfast with lots of choice, freshly prepared and cooked beautifully. Very friendly without being over the top, so very relaxing. We will return.

We knew going in to the weekend that we would be given the small room- but that didn't spoil our 2 days at all!! The location is incredible. It's so close to the town centre and the parking was great. The breakfast is delicious and the beds lovely and cosy. We had a lovely weekend. Thank you

We enjoyed a night here in September, we found the location very good, great for going out at night and very practical for leaving the car in the car park and seeing the sights around Ambleside. Our room was small but very well equipped, bathroom excellent. We really enjoyed our sleep, not disturbed by other guests or traffic noise. Breakfast... More

We stayed at the B&B only one night but we really appreciated the location of the place within Ambleside, the wide car park, the helpful approach of the owner: all of this made a big difference as we needed to do stuff in a short time. The owner seemed to be busy as well, so unfortunately we could not experience... More

This was our second visit to this good value B&B, clean with all you need, good breakfasts and helpful hosts. There is on-site parking (not the case with many Ambleside B&Bs), yet the location is handy for the centre of town.

My girlfriend and I booked Rothay as it was a good budget option for a short weekend away. Upon booking we already knew we had the last room available (the smallest) so we can't gripe on the room size as we knew what we were getting. The B&B itself was great, a highlight being the owners. Upon arrival a little... More

Our first time in Ambleside for the weekend as we would normally visit Bowness for our walking. However we were bowled over with the little village, it's facilities and the lovely B&B in which we stayed for 3 nights. Rothay House is 3 minutes from the pubs, restaurants and amenities Ambleside has to offer. Ample parking and spotlessly clean rooms.... More

This is our fifth time at this lovely, well located B+B. Debbie and Darren were great hosts, helping with local info, suggested areas/walks to visit as well as advise on conditions and recent feedback from other guests. The room was clean and well kept, breakfast never left you wanting and the way you are made to feel welcome just tops... More

Good position and value for money - our room was quite small but well appointed and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were very tasty and used local ingredients. Nice to have parking and good location for Ambleside and the lakes.
