Just had two nights staying here and can honestly say that the people who run and own it are friendliest hotel/bb owners that we have ever met. We stayed in a superior room which was well furnished clean and warm.We also had a jacuzzi bath great for relaxing in after a long walk. Breakfast was excellent with a good menu... More

We stayed here for a night over the new year period and we weren't disappointed. We had such a warm welcome when we arrived and immediately we felt at home, with such a friendly atmosphere. The four poster room we stayed in was immaculately clean with a lovely view. Breakfasts were lovely with great service. We'll definitely stay again.

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Rothay Garth. We actually booked the four poster room due to availability but have to say although quite a traditional layout in keeping with the building is was very nice and most importantly spotlessly clean. The owners (a family run concern) could not do enough to... More

A group of about 8 of us stay in Ambleside every year, and change B & B every few years. A couple of us checked this one out earlier this year. It's very clean and comfortable, breakfasts excellent, and the staff extremely helpful and pleasant.

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
