This was our third stay at the Rothay Manor but it has been over 15 years since we were last here - why did we wait so long? We had originally discovered the Hotel through recommendations as a "child - friendly" place when our 2 offspring were still at primary school age and it didn't disappoint then. Now we finally...

Three of us called for lunch without a prior booking and were warmly greeted at reception. One was elderly and severely disabled. The hotel is beautifully and tastefully furnished to the highest standards and has a pleasant outlook onto a well designed and maintained garden. Unobtrusive music was playing and was instantly turned off on request. The food was well... More

My husband and I had stayed at this hotel 17 years ago and cannot explain why it's taken so long to return. This stay was a one night Groupon deal consisting of an absolutely wonderful afternoon tea, 4 course dinner and the best Cumbrian breakfast we have ever had, without doubt. From entering the hotel to leaving , we found... More

We had been given a voucher for afternoon tea and after looking at the list of places available we opted to come and stay at the Rothay Manor. What a wonderful choice this was - the afternoon tea was superb with an amazing choice and being a buffet you could help yourself as many times as you liked! The rest... More

Lovely hotel. The staff were very helpful and polite. The food was delicious and the room very spacious and clean.Very large bed. Shower cubicle and large bath in bathroom. Little sofa in the room and a little terrace through a private external door in the room. Really good hotel.

My husband and I stayed here twice in the space of 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. The staff, without exception, are unbelievably helpful and charming. On our first stay we had a very comfortable room next to reception which had all the facilities needed for someone with mobility problems. The bathroom was well fitted out and the... More

Took advantage of a groupon offer for one night's stay with afternoon tea and dinner included. Arrived too late for afternoon tea (our own fault) but dinner and breakfast were excellent. The last hotel we stayed in (French Chateau) should come here for lessons. Room was spacious and comfortable. Bathroom absolutely sparkled. Staff welcoming and attentive. Advertised as three star...

We had a short break at the lovely Rothay Manor Hotel, and found it to be a real haven of tranquility and comfort. It is set in impressive grounds on the fringe of Ambleside, and the original 19th century building retains its classic and cultured feel. It is so peaceful and relaxing, and it doesn't take long for guests to... More

Room: a good sized room, mattress was too soft for my liking and ended up sleeping on the floor. Bathroom included a separate shower (a plus for elderly guests), room was relatively quiet despite overlooking the staff car park and main road. good storage space and a decent number of wooden hangers. Staff: very attentive, helpful and friendly. Food: Dinner:... More
