Our main gripe here is with the usefulness of Tripadvisor these days. The tool we used to choose where to stay. Yes, the Rothay Garth was fine, but the reviews did not represent the standard of accommodation we experienced. The beds are of poor quality very uncomfortable, as are the pillows and duvet. The walls in both our rooms were... More

Travelling back to Cheshire from Northumberland myself and my husband stayed only one night at the Rothay Garth and we wished we had booked for two nights. The room was lovely with a four poster bed and a beautiful window seat with views to the hills. Ambleside has some lovely eateries and the short drive to Windermere makes it ideal.... More

We stayed for one night with our 11month old son. The room was spacious and clean. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the bathroom was sparkling clean! Breakfast was lovely the next morning and all set up ready for us with baby. Very close to Ambleside town centre and near to shores of Lake Windemere. Would definitely stay again.... More

We have visited this B&B twice now we like it so much. The staff are friendly but not in your face. The breakfasts are wonderfully filling. An excellent base to go walking. We intend to return again later in the year.

We all had a great stay despite a lost key, which was then found. The family are lovely and very welcomng. We enjoyed a great stay for the second year running. The hotel is life dated opposite the small ark which offers crazy golf, tennis, pitch and put from 10am til about 6 pm. Great for kids

We stayed with friends last October but on this occasion it was just the two of us and we booked the same room, number 12 at the back of the building, This is a superior room with a king size bed as per their website. This hotel is very clean and comfortable with an absolutely fabulous breakfast. If we visit... More

Spent two nights here.A very pleasant Hotel with good service and friendly staff.It is family run and nothing was too much trouble. I enjoy staying at this lovely Guest House/ Small Hotel whenever I visit Cumbria and it is well sighted to walk into the town centre which offers some very nice eating establishments. A Restaurant I can also recommend... More

We stayed for 3 days at the Rothay Garth and had a really pleasant stay, the Family are warm and friendly, helpful when needed, cooked breakfast was piping hot using all locally sourced produce, the accomodation is warm and comfortable and ideally located, for walking,hiking or just exploring the lakes and shops as we did...book with confidence, relax and enjoy..

The hospitality can't be faulted but for the price the room could be a bit more modern. Water pressure was very low meaning you have to effectively wait your turn in the mornings. There was also mould all over the bathroom blinds which is easily remedied but on that point easily spotted. I'd happily go back but probably not at... More
