There is a pub downstairs and there is live music late at night, starting 10pm. It was extremely noisy and made it impossible to sleep. Staff seems to be half drunk and was not helpful at all. If you have a choice, please do not stay at this place.

A welcoming hotel with very good accomodation. The meals are excellent with plenty choice of home cooked food. Handy for the centre of Ambleside and also for the Cumbria Way. Friendly welcoming staff.

The view from the room was stunning... a most rewarding thing after the long climb up the stairs being watched by Sir Winston Churchill himself !! ( he was on the wall)... Breakfast was generous and quick...

We spent a little time here watching day one and part of day two of the 4th test in the Ashes series 2015. Good atmosphere apart from one extremely loud punter but that is not Churchill's fault. Staff were friendly and the sandwiches were good. First time I have ever come across a pub giving you condiments in a small... More

Stayed for three nights 10 to 13 July. Room was good with good shower. Bar is a sports bar nice enough but not really my thing. Breakfast was good and served very efficiently by very courteous young men. Car park entrance is a bit of a challenge but you get used to it.

This place is situated in the centre of Ambleside. The staff are very friendly. Rooms are basic but clean with great views. They do have entertainment on in the bar on Friday and Saturday nights i.e. karaoke on Fridays and a live singer on Saturdays

Stayed here recently for 2 nights, we were made very welcome, staff were all lovely. The room was quite small, but very comfortable, we were on the top floor so lovely view. The hotel is right in the centre of town so very handy for everything. It is about 20 mins easy stroll down to the lake. Definitely would recommend... More
