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.

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.
