My sister and I had a wonderful two days in Ambleside and Rothay House was a perfect place to come back to after spending the day exploring the area.Our hotel room was spotless, the beds were very comfortable and the English breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed a couple of years ago and so chose to return on our recent visit to Ambleside. Darren and Debbie were friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable and the cooked breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of options.

The atmosphere in the guest house in friendly and helpful and highly... More
