Stayed two nights on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. Room very good indeed, lovely bathroom - big shower cabinet, but sad shower delivering very little water! Everything beautifully clean. Excellent breakfast (although we do prefer pouring our own coffee). Very good dinner, better on the Monday. We would definitely stay here again. Choose a room facing the garden, which... More

I've just returned from a 3 night stay at the Rothay manor hotel with my husband and 10 month old twins. The hotel is well presented, clean and attractive but I thought the best part was the staff, all of whom were friendly and attentive and seemed to take extra effort to ensure we had everything we needed. It really... More

A classic style hotel with very good facilities, quiet rooms and location. Ideally located base to visit all the lakes areas. A wide breakfast selection and very good service with separate area for families with young children. The evening restaurant meal was somewhat disappointing, the tables were still set as for the breakfast i.e. no linen table cloths. I would... More

We very much enjoyed our afternoon tea at the Rothay Manor Hotel in Ambleside. We were given a very warm welcome and sat in the beautiful lounge. Coffee and hot chocolate was available as well as a wide range of teas. You could help yourself to as much food as you wished, from a selection of sandwiches, savouries, scones and... More

We visited here for lunch - it's offered as a set menu with a reasonable choice of courses. Despite really pleasant staff and quite a nice atmosphere, the experience was disappointing. The main courses were only 2 star at best and possibly the most tasteless duck I have ever had. Puddings were much better and the wine was ok

Whilst visiting Cumbria we had an afternoon tea at Rothay Manor Hotel and it was wonderful. There was a choice of leaf teas which was served to us in a comfortable bar lounge area with a view of the beautiful gardens. There were delicious sandwiches served with scotch egg, sausage roll & garnish. Then scone with cream & jam, a... More

This really is a great place - a traditional old English hotel with fantastic service and a great restaurant. It was wonderful to go back. The rooms are of the highest quality, and maintained in spotless condition. Afternoon teas are out of this world.

With beautiful garden at outside of each room, my elder parents enjoyed tea at the chairs for two nights stay. As the children's under age 13 cannot stay here, the elders can enjoy quiete and elegant time. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner here but next time would like to try lunch and afternoon teas which was no vacancy with reservation... More

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
