I booked into here for a relaxing break for myself and my partner. I won't even discuss the car park as I think all had been covered in other reviews on here. On arrival we booked in at the sports bar, extremely decieving from the pictures online as this looked like a lovely country pub. We weretd there would be... More

Good meal out in Ambleside. Followed by disappointing drinks in Churchills. After 10 mins awaiting bar service went looking for attendant. Obviously looking on CCTV as when tapped on staff door he appeared but promptly served other later customers. Not impressed as had 2/3 rounds of drinks. No customer experience evident. Manager, please train dark curly haired bar man. Thanks.

A visit to Churchill's bar on a very rainy break to Cumbria was very welcome! We could take our dogs in which meant we could go in too - if the dogs don't go, we don't! It was a quiet lunchtime, service was good, food was nice, well-presented and good value for money.

My wife and I escaped the children, for a couple of nights. We stayed at the Churchill in the Superior Room. We were more than pleased with the room, large, clean with a large bathroom including nice bath and shower. Breakfast was excellent, not too much, just enough and well presented. The pub itself is also nice, I prefer the... More

Booked through Bookings.com for a 1 night stay, price of £60 for a double room which seemed very good. Upon arrival there was no place to park my car and was told there was a public carpark 200 yards down the road which i had to pay for. The bedroom was very clean and tidy but you could hear everything... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed in a 'superior double' room over the Valentine’s Day weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely and spotlessly clean, we had a great view of the church in Ambleside and the bathroom was huge! The staff were very helpful, bringing us a heater when we thought the radiator wasn't working (turned out... More

We stayed for four nights at the end of January. Room was excellent with a nice view of the fells. Plenty of hot water and clean towels every day. Lovely breakfast and parking available at the rear of the hotel.Staff very helpful and friendly. Excellent value and we will be staying again. Claire and Neil, Edinburgh

I booked this hotel specifically because it was in the centre of Ambleside and it had a car park. I even checked about the car park when I rang to book. After a very long day walking we were so looking forward to arriving at the hotel and just relaxing. What the website fails to indicate is that: 1 It... More

First of all, the car park for this hotel is ridiculous - it is extremely difficult to turn into, let alone drive down, as it is so narrow. The car park itself is so small there is barely enough room to turn round. If you drive anything bigger than a Ford Fiesta, don't bother. Find somewhere else to park to... More
