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

This was just what we needed for our two night stay, having never been to the Lake District before it was the perfect location for setting out on walks and close to bars and restaurants. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. Would stay here again. Oh and I'd recommend Lucy's Wine Bar & Bistro. Amazing food and wine!

Pros: We booked a family room, the room has 1 double bed and 2 single bed. Even after 3 beds in the room there was space to walk around and put luggage. The room was cozy and clean. Staff is friendly. The bathroom for the family room is not connected but it is right outside the room, which worked for... More

My husband and I stayed here overnight on a Saturday evening for the price of £40 fir a double room. It was clean and nice and warm with the bare essentials you require for a place to rest your head. It's not luxurious but was a nice room , small and cosy in a great location with everything you need.... More

Celebratory Letdown I reserved the room for 2 nights 3 weeks in advance only for them to take the money out of my account within hours of the booking needless to say it emptied my bank account. Hotels usually wait until you check out or fail to turn up before they raid your bank account. I emailed the hotel to... More
