Arrived a couple of weeks ago with some friends for a walking weekend. Dave & Angela were great hosts and provided a very comfortable place to stay in a great location too. Rooms were nice an modern with a great view at the rear, breakfast was as you'd expect and didn't disappoint. If I was to be picky, I'd say... More

We stayed over new year for four nights and we enjoyed it again. We have no hesitation in recommending the Claremont House, Ambleside. Lovely breakfast, good shower and plenty of heating - an essential this time of year especially when we had been up on the fells every day. The hosts are pleasant and informative. Just what anyone would want... More

We visited Claremont House for the second time last weekend. The same high standards as before - beautiful and clean room, lovely shower - and some new deep plush carpet in the hallway and stairs. Breakfast is served between 8.30 and 9.30 and is worth getting out of bed for. Fresh fruit, grapefruit and cereals galore, full cooked breakfast (bacon,... More

A charming guest house ideally situated in the centre of Ambleside. We were greeted by Dave and Angie who were attentive and welcoming. The room and en suite bathroom were both of a good size. The bathroom was well fitted out and spotlessly clean. We had a slight problem on the first night with the shower temperature but worked out... More

We stayed here over the Christmas period. As a young couple it's a cute and unique place to stay, right in the centre of town. The rooms are a little small and very hot in the evening (check the radiator!) but value wise it is well priced. Very throughly cleaned and a full english breakfast. Staff were very kind and...

Our family of 4 stayed in the family room at Claremont House for 3 nights. We could not fault both Angie and David for their hospitality throughout our stay. The room was spotlessly clean upon arrival and after a long day walking it was lovely to come back to our room having been cleaned along with fresh towels and a... More

From the moment we booked the hotel, right through to check-out, the owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is very child-friendly (other guests with children have been visiting the Claremont for a number of years) and David and Angie were very accommodating to us and our one year old son. David has an interesting background and gave... More
