Good little hotel, well located. Few niggles: a tenner added on to price when booked through Priceline; we could use our home key to open the Main Street front door (!). Handy but a little worrying. Toilet cistern needed a little persuasion to stop flushing and tokens for coffee machine didn't work, but that aside a likeable stay.

Tried phoning a few times to find out where to park. Eventually parked on street after failing to find it and having had my calls ignored. Got to hotel, sign on window said checkin at the bar next door. After a slight mix up with bookings i was given the key and a parking permit. This was behind Ambleside football... More

We stayed here for one night and the spot is perfect if you want to meander around Ambleside. Stayed in room 6 and the bed was comfy, the room clean and had no disturbance from other guests or passers-by. If you are looking for a stay more than a couple of days or after a full hotel service, then it's... More

The location of this is pretty good. A free car park is available which is a 10 minute walk. We normally park our car here so this wasn't an issue. The shower was good and the room is decorated to a high standard. The bed was comfortable. There is a coffee machine on both floors although the one on floor... More

Check in was two doors down. Parking is half a mile away. The noise from within the hotel is beyond acceptable. There is no one to assist for any queries. Bed is cheap (room 2) and extremely uncomfortable. Bathroom is no bigger than a matchbox! Bedding was not clean. Some oil on door handles/hinges would help, ensuring other guests keep... More

Please don't stay here. Check out my other reviews, I post more positive reviews and hardly if ever post negative but feel I must here. I stayed for one evening in the small double. The problems: on arrival we went to the restaurant where I was met by a quite surly Italian girl, no small talk, very abrupt, told to... More

Just returned from a 2 night break at the ambleside central. We had gone away for the weekend to get away from some building work at home and get out on the fells for a relaxing "de stress". Unfortunately Ambleside central did not provide this. The positives are that they are very nicely appointed rooms. Clean tidy and comfortable. Tea... More

We stayed here for four days. The room was kept warm and was very spacious to move around in. As we came in as a family this was perfect. Also staff are very nice and tidy the room each day. Also they left us extra coins for the drink machine which was really nice of them. The room was well... More

This is place does what it says on the tin. Modern clean and comfortable, the ensuite was clean and had plenty of hot water. The room was a bit on the cosy side but for the price of £60 a night you won't get much better value for money. The free parking is a short walk away at the football... More
