This is a well run, clean and comfortable B&B and the beds are comfortable. It is family run and very friendly. It only takes a couple of minutes to walk into the town and the bus station if you prefer to leave the car in the large car park. Ambleside is a very pleasant town and a good base to... More

Just returned from a short break at this b&b. very pleasant staff, lovely clean room, although a bigger wardrobe would have been nice. Breakfast was lovely, lots of choice, continental style. Even my partner enjoyed the food although he had initially been a little sceptical as used to full English. Overall a lovely stay, & weather was brilliant. We will... More

On the plus side, the bed and breakfast is run by a lovely family. The picture is a little misleading as it is by a main road (from the picture on Booking.com it looked more rural and the church has been photoshopped) but nonetheless it is 5 minutes to Ambleside centre which has plenty of shops and restaurants, and only...

Nice and friendly b&b in the centre of Ambleside. We stayed for 3 nights over August bank holiday. Good points: friendly and helpful staff, location excellent, great breakfast, large bedroom, large car park, nice lounge and conservatory to relax in, fresh and soft towels, cleanish rooms. Poor points: rooms do need updating, bed not very comfortable, shower very weak and... More

We have been several times to the rothay garth and it never disappoints. The owners are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Rothay garth is centrally positioned for restaurants and walks and is only a 15 min walk to the lake and watersedge hotel where you can have a drink overlooking the lake. There is also crazy golf...

This B&B sits in the middle of Ambleside with excellent on site parking with flexibility as to when you leave. The welcome is friendly and genuine, the owners clearly love what they do and it shows in the service they provide. The rooms are becoming a little dated but they are warm and welcoming. There is an external veranda to... More

My boyfriend & I stayed in Ambleside for the first time & found the Rothay Garth on booking.com. We were extremely pleased with our choice. The staff were so friendly & helpful, & let us check in half an hour earlier than the time stated. The location was fantastic- & we were just a short stroll into the town. The... More

We stayed for 1 night while travelling in the lakes, the most friendly owner we have ever had the pleasure to meet. The owner showed us the room before we agreed to take it for the night and we were not disappointed. The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and the towels and bathroom were also great. At breakfast we both... More

We then unpack and went out to look around town which was 5 mins walk up the street. Everywhere was within walking distance which was a bonus. We never used the... More
