We stayed in Ambleside lodge over new year and it is very basic to say the least. One thing we can say is the location was fantastic as it is right in the centre of Ambleside and it also provides free Wi-Fi and a coffee machine which I thought was a nice touch. However, there are negatives as every morning... More

This place is central and it is in Ambleside - that's as an accurate description of what your buying! None of the booking agents mention that this above an Italian restaurant! It's noisy and it smells of Italian food - ok for 5 minutes! The room was dingy and it didn't feel homely at all! My advice to the owners... More

We have just come back from this venue where we stayed 2 nights. Staff are very helpful and friendly but unfortunately the room is very old and dated, but clean. The Location being in the town Centre of Ambleside is ideal during the day for shopping. But the parking is a big issue as we had to park by a... More

Last minute bank holiday booking for 1 night, paid £75. Thought breakfast was included & parking not but is infact the other way round. No breakfast but coffee machine that uses tokens provided in rooms & parking 5-10 min walk away. Room 7 was small but ok, nicely furnished & clean. Ensuite was fine, even had a towel rail but...

Nice room, high ceiling, well decorated, adequate shower, comfy beds, however that is where positive comments end. The house creaks at EVERY step so you can hear the floor above and below. The doors have suck a strong safety hinge that they bang very loudly when ever some leaves. You can even hear people on the stairs and we were... More

If it wasn't for the beautiful scenery and all the fun activities we did, we would not have enjoyed the weekend break at all, the place almost ruined it for the following reasons... We had to park 15 min walk away from the B&B We booked the family room and had to use the private bathroom which was across the... More

Ambleside central is unstaffed, so we checked in at the restaurant next door and got our keys and parking permit. The parking lot is 7-8 minutes walk away from Ambleside central and you're parking there at your own risk. We stayed one night and the car was just as we left it the next day. We stayed in room 7,...

Booked it up for a weekend stay, the place is lovely and kept very clean. We stayed for 2 nights and checking in wasn't difficult at all, we had one family room with a private bathroom and another room with an en suite.
