If it wasn't for the beautiful scenery and all the fun activities we did, we would not have enjoyed the weekend break at all, the place almost ruined it for the following reasons... We had to park 15 min walk away from the B&B We booked the family room and had to use the private bathroom which was across the... More

Ambleside central is unstaffed, so we checked in at the restaurant next door and got our keys and parking permit. The parking lot is 7-8 minutes walk away from Ambleside central and you're parking there at your own risk. We stayed one night and the car was just as we left it the next day. We stayed in room 7,...

Booked it up for a weekend stay, the place is lovely and kept very clean. We stayed for 2 nights and checking in wasn't difficult at all, we had one family room with a private bathroom and another room with an en suite. The location is perfect as your in the centre of Ambleside with restaurants and pubs nearby for... More

We chose this hotel for the location, which is convenient for the town. The room is well laid out and spacious, coffee / tea making facilities are in the room and ample tokens for the coffee making machines locating on the landings. The bathroom is an add on in the corner of the room and is spacious with a good... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, arriving after midnight wasn't a problem as we could check-in to the bar next door. Lovely room with ensuite, the room was a bit small, but had everything we needed. Clean and tidy and right in the middle of Ambleside so all the shops, lake and walking tracks are very close.The carpark was a... More

This place is lovely for couples! It's located right in the heart of Ambleside which was perfect for us. The rooms are small but they are presented well and kept clean; just what we wanted. It's not a hotel, nor a bed and breakfast, just the bed! But it was ideal for what we wanted! The car park is a... More

Everything OK, but please be aware, PRIVATE BATHROOM is not attached to your bedroom. You have to walk across a landing where other rooms are so you may bump into someone. When told the owner, he didn't really seem that bothered and asked "what does PRIVATE BATHROOM mean to you?" To which I replied, "somewhere I can go without bumping... More

We have stayed there for 3 nights in room 10 (top floor). This room was spacious, well furnished, quiet (of course you can hear other guests once in a while), with comfy bed. Just 2 things we didn't like about our room. There was a mold in a kettle and wifi wasn't working properly. On the other hand we didn't... More

The room was reasonably priced and tastefully decorated. However the room (room 6 at the rear) overlooked very noisy neighbours who were going until around midnight. The parking situation is poor (a 5 minute walk away down a dark unlit track). Good for the price but don't see where the 4 stars came from. Wouldn't stay again.
