Great room only hotel with everything you need, less that a couple of mins walking distance. Access to walking routes within mins as well. Tidy, warm, modern rooms with two restaurant below (no noise pollution). CAUTION.... Please read you parking permit instructions as to where exactly to park as we made a slight error and ended up with a £25... More

I recently stayed in this hotel and although the rooms were very small it was a great little hotel. Very clean and convent as its placed right in the middle of Ambleside. Exactly what we needed. Only problems we had were the other people staying were exceptionally loud and we could here just about every noise that was made! Great... More

Just back from a 3 night stay over New Year, we were in room 6 & we were a bit concerned with some previous reviews...We didn't have to be, as soon as we arrived & collected our key from the Lily bar next door we knew we would enjoy our stay. Room 6 was spacious, very clean & modern with... More

Pro's- warm, cosy, nice beds and modern. Con's- no breakfast like a other B&B's that are so cute in the town, parking a little far so you can pay at a parking opposite. Offering parking with the distance of 6mins walking and a map is not really helpful..especially at night or winter! Overall it's a decent enough venue.

Arrived about 6.30 pm in November. Given instructions for parking located down an unlit lane at the stand of Ambleside FC, also unlit. Felt uneasy about leaving car in such an insecure place but negotiated lane with luggage through the darkness and pot holes to accommodation. Met by musty smell probably of dirty carpets on stairs and landings. Room 4... More

Years since I've been to Ambleside so was looking forward to a return visit as myself & my partner used this as a base when we ran one of the Lakeland Trails at Helvellyn. This place came up as the cheapest place to stay in Ambleside, £60 per night, we stayed for two nights. You get what you pay for,... More

This was a return visit following a good stay last year. As there was only two of us this time, we got a smaller room and it really was small, however nicely decorated. There was no view as it was at the back and the window was frosted as it only looked out onto a fence. There was a blind... More

We stayed with friends in this hotel for 2 nights and it was perfectly adequate. It is situated on the main street in Ambleside over a restaurant, from where you collect your room key. The central location is good although there was some noise from the street on the first night (Friday). There is free car parking but this is... More

We arrived and checked in next door at Lily's to get our keys. Once we had got them we were completely independent, coming and going as we pleased without annoying anyone. Our room was really nice and the bed was very comfy. Each floor had a coffee machine with lots of different flavoured teas, different coffees and hot chocolates available.... More
