We stayed at Brantfell in late August 2014. The location of the B&B is excellent and parking facilities are provided - we were also allowed to use the parking permit when we went out on day trips which was a nice little touch. The room was spotless and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. My partner was very ill throughout... More

Chris and jane make you feel like family from arrival to departure. One of the very best B&B's we've stayed in, the breakfast was superb you could have anything cooked anyway and the buffet was fab. We had a large double and it was lovely with a beautiful view. Can't thank them enough for their hospitality A+++

Just spent four wonderful nights at Brantfell House. Can't praise Jane and Chris enough for their welcome-- nothing was too much bother. Lovely room (3) overlooking the park. Spotlessly clean with a very comfy bed. As someone who suffers from restless syndrome I had the best nights sleep in ages. Breakfast ranks among the best we have had (and that... More

A nice place, biggish rooms, decent bathroom, owners hospitable. Honestly bar with only beer, spirits or champagne. Breakfast cooked to order. I'm not sure it would stand above the myriad of other B and B's in the street and neighbouring streets, that frankly, all looked the same, regardless we were happy and comfortable here for two nights.

Room was small but fully equiped and with a modern en-suite - all clean and comfortable. Chris, Jane and Julie were all very friendly and welcoming. Excellent breakfast cooked to order. I would definitely recommend Brantfell and hope to visit again. Although parking is difficult in Ambleside, Chris and Jane had solutions and gave us a parking permit to use... More

Stayed here for 2 nights end of July. We had the smallest double (room 4) which was perfectly adequate for 2 nights but if staying longer we have opted for room 3 or 6 which were much bigger and overlooked the park / putting green. Great location with the centre only 2 minutes walk away. Hosts were fantastic and would... More

We booked this B and B for a long weekend stay in Ambleside. It exceeded all expectations; breakfast is delicious with much variety, staff are welcoming and attentive, rooms are spotless, and the soap/shower gels provided smell amazing! I particularly enjoyed meeting the dogs (Doris and Sid), and we were pleased that board games were provided (including backgammon :D). Finally,... More
