This was our second stay here, our first was in the best double room, which I thought was a waste of our money as we spent little time in the room. This time we went to the opposite end of the scale and had a small double room. Lets start with the good. The location is great, the premises and... More

I stayed here for 10 months only going home at the weekends, i would recommend it to anyone. The full English breakfast with toast, Tea, Juice, cereal it was worth it just for that. It is run by a family and they are all so friendly, 2 mins walk to the centre you can not beat it.

Stayed here for one night while on our way from Wales to Scotland. Location was ideal with off street parking available for our hire car on site. Easy walks to resturants and ideal for leaving town for the countryside. Free wifi is available but due to the location of the Router only available near the Reception Office.Beautiful conservatorium for breakfast... More

This is the second year we have stayed with our dog. We love visiting the Lake District, but staying here is soo convenient, with easy access to Ambleside and beyond. The family who run it are very friendly and make you feel very much at home. We have booked again for next year and looking forward to it already!

My son & I stayed here for three nights, Friday through to Monday morning. Rothay Garth is ideally situated in Ambleside being only a short walk into the town and an easy exit by car out into the surrounding countryside. The welcome is warm & friendly and the breakfasts are a challenge to even the hungriest of teenagers! Plenty of... More

We stayed here for one night in September. The welcome at 8.30 pm (we were late!) was very friendly. The location is in the heart if Ambleside with its own car park for guests. Although "olde worlde" the building has charm and the rooms and ensuite are all fine. It is a little pricey at 100 pounds per night but... More

My husband and I together with our friends and their dog stayed for two nights over a weekend. On our arrival we were given a tour and were shown our table in the dining room for breakfast the next day. We chose to stay in a room with a king size bed and were not disappointed. The bed was lovely... More

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
