We had a 2 night stay booked here in March but had to cut it short. The hotel were very understanding and sympathetic. Excellent room and we enjoyed the food. Good position on outskirts of Ambleside and easy walk to town centre.

We had a 3 night stay and can totally recommend it. The breakfast and dinner were to a very high standard even the soup and sandwiches from room service were excellent in fact we have stayed at 5* hotels that the Rothay could hold their own against so far as the kitchen was concerned. We had the Loughrigg suite in... More

After selecting our choice of teas and coffee a waiter brought out... More

After many stays in Bowness we decided this time to try Ambleside, a town that every Lake lover has driven through many times and I think most of them were driving through on the weekend of 7th/8th March! The hotel is located on the edge of the town, fairly quiet and 10 minutes walk to the centre. Like a lot... More
