Owner is very friendly and social. On you arrival, a freshly baked chocolate cookie is waiting for you! Rooms are great, shower ok. Internet access is only through house computer, so no WIFI. B&B lies at border of Ambleside in a quite neighbourhood but still not far from restaurants and center. Nicolas

We have just returned from a 2 night break at meadowbank and it was a pleasant surprise. We had a nice double room at the back with lovely views, although dated, very functional and comfortable. Breakfast was a nice treat, good homemade cooking and plenty of it too. Very handy just on the outskirts of Ambleside but easy walking distance.... More

From the warm welcome, to the little touches of home- made biscuits in the room, and bottled water, air freshener in the en- suite, to amazing views from the window ( back facing over garden ) freshly cooked mini loaves on the table at breakfast, lovely cooked breakfast and veggie sausages and fruit tea available all just make this a...

Stayed here for one night during my motorcycle trip around the lakes. My single room was clean and comfortable with both the room and ensuite being of adequate size. No wifi but you are welcome to use the computer in the lounge.... If you have a lot of time to kill waiting for it to load. 5 minutes walk from... More

I found Meadowbank on line priority searching for dog friendly as I had my collie with me. When I phoned to confirm I was told the dog could only go into my room, no where else, and then only when I was there. OK - I'll accept that. When I arrived I was told the gardens were 'out of bounds'... More

Five minutes stroll to the north of Ambleside town centre I found this lovely guest house,almost hidden but on the main road. The owner is carrying out exterior maitainance but this does not detract from the interior. The single bedroom had ample space and the en suite was the same. Nice touches was the freshly made biscuit & the large... More

I'll review the hotel, taking into account the low cost of this B and B. The outwardly appearance is a bit run down and interior a little dated, but in all honestly that didnt bother me and it shouldn't bother anyone else, as all I was looking for was a cheap place to stay whilst out walking. The interior is... More

As other reviews have said - outside is run down, but rooms clean, comfortable and had all you needed. Homemade biscuit a nice touch. Breakfast good in nicest room in house with sun and view. Place just lacked warmth - never felt really like owner wanted people in his house. Never rude though.
