Stayed at Chapel House for a family reunion. Grandparents had never had all grandchildren together at once and family had travelled from Northern Scotland, Lancashire, Cheshire and London. We had a wonderful weekend and were very well catered for by Fiona and Tina who were perfect hosts. Thank you for your hospitality and patience with such a large group. PS... More

An excellent inn - perfect location, comfortable, well maintained, a bit cozy (our room was small but perfectly functional), the breakfast was very well prepared and nicely understated. Fiona is a wonderful inn keeper. I look forward to my next visit.

We stayed for two nights in June 2015, it is a lovely place, and the owners are very friendly. The room/en suite was clean and we had plenty of space. We were very close to the centre of Ambleside so had easy access to the town. We would definately stay here again and plan to on our next visit.

My partner & I stayed here for 3 nights in June last year & it completely made our visit to the Lake District perfect. The building itself is charming & characterful; double fronted, local stone & large emerald green bay window; the interior is classic, homely and immaculately kept. It's in an ideal location, as it's about a minutes stroll... More

In the old part of town surrounded by interesting and attractive old buildings and same in the excellent short walk into the centre across the river. Interesting old building in itself, and excellent personal service and food including strawberries and other fresh fruit for breakfast, as well as a range of excellent hot food!

Stayed for a weekend here to attend a wedding in Hawkshead. We had three of the rooms and we all had a positive experience. Bed was comfy as others have noted. Good view from the front window. Room was big enough for our purposes, although the bathroom was on the small side. Parking is a problem as it is situated... More

A great little b&b, very warm and friendly, perfectly clean. The bed was super comfy, great views from the bedroom window. Breakfast was lovely but a bit on the small side ( then again i have a big breakfast ). Well worth using again next time im in Ambleside.

Arrived home today after a lovely stay. Fiona the host was most welcoming and informative on local sight-seeing places to visit. The room was perfect described as small but we found the space fine no issues whatsoever. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit yoghurts and cereals and a choice of full English or eggs on toast poached/scrambled. We parked ok... More

We stayed here for 1 night over the Easter weekend and were not disappointed. The ladies were very welcoming & as I'd recently had surgery which made walking difficult (not the best when you're in the Lakes!), they kindly offered to swap our room so that we were a flight of stairs lower which was greatly appreciated! It was situated... More
