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

My wife and I stayed for one night and although the room was clean and well presented it was lacking a few finishing touches ie wifi which worked, a working plug in the sink and a working t.v remote. The guest house is in a very good location for exploring Ambleside. Another downside was the parking which is further away... More

Don't know what you're like but me? I can't be doing with accommodation that's poor value for money, price doesn't come into it, it's value for money. I've stopped in far more expensive places which are not as good as Ambleside Central. Whys it good value? Well for a start the concept itself, it's a room only accommodation so you... More

I've stayed here a couple of times and it's always been fine. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The bathroom, although not en-suite, was also very roomy. The only down side would be that the car park is quite a walk away, I'd have no qualms about staying again though.
