What a lovely hotel! Lovely, very comfortable and cosy rooms, plenty of space. We stayed in a superior room overlooking the gardens (room 3) which was beautiful. Everything about this hotel is well run, reception staff are really helpful, breakfast is well cooked, presented and served...nothing was too much trouble. It is sparkling clean and welcoming..Im only sorry that I... More

My wife & I had previously visited Rothay Manor 44 years ago and had very pleasant memories of the elegant comfort, friendly and efficient service and superb food we experienced during that stay. On this latest visit whilst pleased to see that modern refurbishments had been tastefully made, we were pleasantly reassured to find that all of the previous elegant... More

The Rothay Manor is a first class hotel. From ease of booking to checkout everything went smoothly. Theire's ample parking in the grounds and easy access into the hotel. As soon as you enter there is a lovely'feel' to the place. It's beautifully decorated and furnished but homely as well so you feel comfortable being there, not concerned you're going... More

My husband & I enjoyed a short winter break here recently and can compliment the hotel on its elegance and comfort.....the 6 foot bed was a sheer joy. The food at both dinner & breakfast could not be faulted, although the breakfast sausage was not a Cumberland as I know it. The service at dinner was a little rushed and... More

An interesting afternoon tea which differed from the norm by being served buffet style. Good selection of tea which we were given the opportunity to refill. Good range of savouries such as sausage rolls and scotch eggs. Nice sandwiches which were restocked when they ran short. Only criticism was there weren't many of them that did not contain mayo. Great... More

We had lunch there yesterday and it was really great experience! Even with small kids we felt welcomed and they had a high chair for our baby. Very quiet place to enjoy and savour! We definitely were surprised and recommend it!

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Rothay Manor Hotel Ambleside. It was our wedding anniversary which happened to coincide with Valentine's day. We had booked into the Loughrigg Lodge, which is a suite a few yards from the main hotel. As soon as we were shown into our accommodation we realised we were going to have... More

We stayed in a superior room which was very spacious, very well decorated and equipped and came with a large 6 foot bed and a balcony, Tea and cake was included in the package and we... More
