Found this B&B through the Tourist Information Centre who were very helpful. We wanted a one night stay at the weekend and a room at Brantholme was the only room available in Ambleside. As it turned out, we couldn't have found better. Very clean, lovely big room with a great view. Staff extremely friendly and a great breakfast Couldn't really... More

Thanks to the Visitor Information Centre for sending you to us! We were the lucky ones have such nice customers to stay during our first few weeks of opening. We inherited no database of previous owners so it was very much a standing start, hence being the 'last room in Ambleside'! We do hope you'll consider us for a future... More

Finding a last minute weekend booking for a B & B in Ambleside at a busy time is not easy, but we were very fortunate to come across the Brantholme Guest House on TripAdvisor. After a long refurbishment, the B & B had only reopened the week before, so they still had vacancies for a Friday and Saturday night. The... More

What a lovely review - thank you. We were delighted to welcome you during our first week or so and lets hope you'll be able to return to us in the future. The location of Brantholme really is lovely for exploring the Lake District and as you mentioned, it's great to have the private, off-road car park so customers can... More

I've just returned home after a lovely night's stay at the guest house with my family. The refurbishment has been done to a high standard and the family who run the guest house are lovely and welcoming. The bed is so comfy and the breakfast was really delicious. Fantastic location too. We'll definitely be back soon!

Many thanks for your review and for letting everyone know about our great location close to Ambleside's village centre and the comfy beds. During the refurb we decided to put Super-King size beds in all 7 rooms - we're keen for everyone to get a great night's sleep! Please keep an eye out for the Winter Offers on our website,... More

We stayed here just as the new owners reopened the B&B after (what they tell us) was a rather torrid refurb. We stayed in Room 6 on the 2nd floor, with amazing views of the fells. There was a brand new Internet TV (everything was new of course!), massive comfy bed, lovely ensuite bathrooms and free wifi. Parking was also... More

Thank you for your review and apologies for the delayed response. The 8 month refurb was quite intense, but we think we're there now! We appreciate you choosing our B&B and hope that you'll return one day soon to enjoy Ambleside once again. More

Have stayed in the Brantholme many times over the past 20 years. It hasn't changed much in that time. If you want welcoming accommocation that is reliably clean and good value for money then you can't go wrong.

Brantholme Guest House is a lovely guest house with wonderful views in a very central location. Our rooms were very homely and well equipped with and 'old world' air.

In one room the shower was inoperable. In the other room there was only a bath with no shower over. The hotel was stuffy and hot because the heating is left on in the summer to dry guests walking gear. The host was friendly until we politely informed him of a problem and then he behaved quite aggressively. I stay... More
