Great place to stay although the noise from downstairs could be a problem Fridays and Saturdays. We stayed on a Thursday so all quiet by 11.30. Lovely breakfast, great staff and parking available around the back. Fantastic value for money.

Just had a break here and found the staff friendly, great views of Ambleside and the hills. There was a band on, heard a little noise but it was Saturday night and still had a good night’s sleep. Came down to a delicious breakfast, didn’t get the girls name that looked after us but she was very nice and polite.... More

Not very happy. This place had a bar underneath that was more of a sports bar/karaoke spot and as I brought two small children wife and their Grandparents from America, was upset to find the bar was banging out the tunes on our first floor room til 12:30am. This obviously wasn't condusive to having a peaceful night with two under... More

We loved our stay in Ambleside and The Churchill Inn was ok, I personally would not return but as we were out and about while in Ambleside for 3 day then it did the job of being a bed for 2 nights. Im hoping that the rooms were not normally that price and that it was only because we stayed... More

Stayed at Churchills this weekend with friends of ours and had a fantastic time. We booked the two superior rooms and were pleasantly surprised to find a kingsize bed a fantastic view (room 21) looking over the roof tops to the hills. The bathroom was massive and had both a bath and a lovely power shower. Chocolates, biscuits, water, and... More

I was working in Ambleside last week and my firm booked me into the Churchill. It really is a bustling pub for locals and tourists. It is not really a business person's hotel. The rooms are fine but the walls are paper thin. The noise from the bar downstairs is not attenuated. The creaking floorboards from other guests is also... More

The car park is tight to enter and the car park is quite small. My advice would be if possible is to check how busy the car park is before negotiating the entrance just in case it is busy. There is a pay & display just down the road which is free between 6pm & 8am. The room was clean... More

The guest house was cheap for Ambleside, clean and tidy and the breakfast was lovely. Please don't be put off by other reviews- yes, the bar can be noisy (what good bar isn't?), but this stops at 12. The car park is tight, but there are other places close by for parking. The staff were lovely and we had a... More

Primarily a sports bar and mostly football, which is popular and well supported. It does do accommodation but basic. Friendly pub and good beer. Situated in town,central to the hops and bus stops, no views of the lake nor the hills.
