Stayed for two nights with mum for a treat. Great location and parking a priceless facility in this area. Room was immaculate along with bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities good too. Breakfast was great with a bit of everything and lots of choices from kippers and full English to pancakes and syrup. Will definitely come back. Thank you, my mum... More

All you will need for a stay in the lakes. Private car park on site, a bonus in Ambleside. Rooms are not big but everything spotless and practical. Enough room for double bed, wardrobe, 3 sets of draws, en suite with shower. Towels changed daily if you need them. Complimentary drinks and biscuits replaced daily. Breakfast is delicious.

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.

A visit to the lakes isn't complete without a few walks and somewhere nice to stay. Rothay house is in a great location for walking Helvellyn or Scarfel Pike or any other mountains in the lakes or just strolling through Ambleside or to the edge of the lake. The atmosphere in the guest house in friendly and helpful and highly... More
