We had dinner at the hotel as a family of all adults. The meal was lovely, right from the tiny bits with drinks to the fudge with coffee. The main meal courses we could not fault. There would be only two things I would mention and that was some of the staff are not very friendly and had a problem... More

Stayed at Rothay for several nights and can't fault their service, food or spacious rooms at a reasonable price. Has 3 stars, but worth at least 1 more. Not a smart, modern minimalist hotel, but a warm friendly one that makes you feel welcome and looks after you.

Have just returned from The Lakes having spent four nights at the Rothay Manor Hotel in Ambleside. We did full board and the food was excellent. We were in Room 5, which was very spacious and comfortable with a large bed and two easy chairs, which were nice to collapse into after a day's walking. All the staff were very... More

On entering we were greeted and shown to our table in one of the lounges. It is a buffet style afternoon tea where you can help yourself to as much or little, there was plenty of... More

Our first visit to Rothay Manor Hotel was 44 years ago! This month we made our fourth visit and enjoyed it every bit as much. The hotel is situated in the heart of the Lake District, 10 minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside and 10 minutes in a different direction to the head of Lake Windermere. It is therefore... More

We stayed for a couple of nights here on our way to Scotland, then another night a few days later. We were so happy with the hotel that we would have loved to stay there for the whole week. The staff made us very welcome, the public rooms and bedrooms were beautifully decorated and the beds comfortable. The food was... More

This was truly delicious, so much choice, bit different from other afternoon teas as you get to choose what you would like and I must say there was so much different cakes to chose, your spoilt for choices. The price is pretty amazing to, £15 per head, you can go back and refill to, the choice of teas are impressive... More

We stayed as usual for the Spring themed walking week. Hotel and food was excellent as always. Good service and attention to detail. The walking was well led and organised to a very high standard and we were lucky with the weather - cold but no rain.
