We stayed here for one night over a busy weekend. When we arrived at the door we were greeted with a not so cheery face which was disappointing after reading the reviews. We were shown to our room, which just had a new carpet laid and the door was rather stiff with the carpet being new. We were in room... More

Was promised good reliable parking on the weekend, when we arrived theyre was no parking. Had to leave our vehicles in another street. Room was clean but windows were rather noisy causing a disturbance. Toilet was very small and tight to sit on. Rather disapointed 😞

We stayed for one night - to Holme Lea's credit they were the only B&B who would let us stay for just one night over Valentine's weekend. The place is spotlessly clean, the rooms are warm and comfy. Breakfast is a bit basic but nice. Value for money.

We stayed for 2 nights over bank holiday, we found it to be great value. Location is right in the centre of Ambleside, with Lucy's on a plate a few metres away and the royal oak at the top of the street. Parking wasn't a problem with the suggestions from Pam. I would stay here again, the only reason for... More

We stayed in Room 5, a large family room with a partition that gives an element of privacy for when the little ones go to sleep and the adults don't want to. The shower room was very small but the power of the shower was brilliant. It is quite amazing how much they have put into such a small shower... More

We had a very lovely stay on Saturday 14th June for the Great North Swim. Pam was very helpful and her suggestions about parking were fantastic, the room (I think Number 5) was perfect and the shower was AMAZING! Breakfast was scrummy and we liked it so much we've already booked for next year! Thanks Pam :-)

Spent an evening at this excellent B&B on the weekend of Great North Swim Pam was very welcoming even with our very late arrival. Also we had an early start and Pam was up cooking breakfast for us. Spotlessly clean and very spacious room (#5) We would love to stay again next time we're in the Lakes. Ambleside is a... More

From the moment Pam greeted us at the door this was a wonderful break and thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. The guest house is spotless. The beds are comfortable with nice linen and lovely thick fluffy towels for use in the ensuite facilities, which are very good quality. The room was spacious and Pam and Billy have thought of...

I stayed for 2 nights in a very comfortable room. Pam was there to greet me, and was very helpful and friendly. The smell of cooked breakfast was wafting up the staircase, and couldn't wait to tuck in to it! Ample of cereals to choose from, with fruit juice and yoghurts. Plenty of coffee and toast, and the most amazing... More
