This was our second visit to Claremont House, once again Dave and Angie are very friendly and happy to give you any information about the local area, places to eat and good walks . We stayed for 2 nights during Christmas and New Year. The rooms are very clean, comfy and we had plenty of room. The breakfast is great... 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

Just returned after staying for 2 nights at Claremont House. We travelled as a family-our children are 7 and 8. We received a very warm welcome and were shown to our room, which was modern and spotlessly clean. The proprietors Dave and Angie are very knowledgable about the Lakes and provided us with lots of tips and advice on things... More

Stayed here twice now, and perfect every time. Friendly owners and always full of hints, tips and stories of the area. Conversation about a walk in the snow around little langdale has made us want to come back in the winter one year. Crockery and cutlery looks brand new each visit, it is kept spotless. Rooms are size you'd expect... More

After staying here in 2013 we had no hesitation in booking it again for our little trip to the Lakes, and it didn't disappoint! It is perfectly situated and the family room we stayed in was really comfy and spacious. We made use of the hosts' local knowledge and it was lovely chatting to them at breakfast and finding out...
