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.

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
