Just spent 2 nights in the Windermere Room at the Inn. Was a wonderful experience. The staff are excellent, the accommodation luxurious, the food very good and the location stunning. Would highly recommend. Can't wait to return!

This is a beautifully situated inn at the head of Lake Windermere. If you get the right seats there is a stunning view of the lake. We called in for lunch and had the cheddar, pickle and onion sandwiches with fries. They were exquisite. My only criticism is that the salad was dressed with some kind of mustard based dressing...

Just spent 5 nights at the Wateredge Inn, Ambleside and absolutely loved it. We stayed in a suite overlooking Lake Windermere and part of the car park. The accommodation is superb (we were in Windermere Suite) although a little pricey, but it was well worth it as we were so comfortable and well looked after.Spotlessly clean with a lovely bath...

Glorious setting. Good food. Friendly staff. Lovely rooms. Access to lovely spa not too far. Good location. Very relaxing altogether. Easy walking into Ambleside, fabulous array of shops and the lovely Esquire Coffee Shop.

Our stay here was pretty faultless with great service, food and very comfortable accommodation. We stayed in Fishers Landing which sleeps 4 in two singles and a double. There is one family bathroom with a decent separate walk in shower. Entrance to the property is from ground level, there is a useful lobby area for shoes and wet coats then... More

My husband booked Wateredge Inn as a surprise for our wedding anniversary. We arrived mid morning and the receptionist allowed us to park in the hotel car park even though check in wasn't until 3.00pm. We had lunch in the bar area which was delicious the staff were friendly and efficient. We had booked one of the garden rooms and... More

Stayed here for two nights in August over a weekend. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly and polite. Our room was on the top floor at the front side of the hotel. I thought it would have been noisy because of the road, but it wasn't, we slept well both nights. The free wifi wasn't very good.... More

Nice Hotel good in every respect, clean, comfy beds, spacious room, friendly staff, reasonable pub food and a location right on the shore of Windermere next to the Waterhead at Ambleside. It's also dog friendly so your hound can come too and splash around in the lake.

We found this little gem 2 years ago and have just returned from our 4th stay there. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful, especially Claire for whom nothing is too much trouble. We stay in a garden room which is spacious, clean & very comfortable as well as being dog friendly. Our dog is always welcomed &... More
