We stayed here for a short walking holiday. The owner met us, showed us to our room, and explained everything. All very well organised, breakfasts particularly good for a B&B. Clean and well kept up. Only one very small problem – the Wifi in our room (at the very top of the house) was temperamental – you had to sit... More

Attentive, friendly owners and staff who kept things cleared and topped up. Direct line to staff (for emergencies) outside reception hours. Clean, fresh, bright decor.

We stayed here on our way to London from Elgin, and were so pleased to have a comfortable bed to sleep in to break the journey. We stayed in one of the dog-friendly rooms (number 4) and it was really convenient to be able to park right outside the room - ease of getting the dog and all her 'stuff'... More

Spent 3 nights here recently and very much enjoyed the experience. Location is ideal, very close to center of town and only a couple of minutes walk to the shops/pubs/restaurants. Parking in Ambleside is problematic, so it's fantastic to be able to dump the car in their great big (free) car park on arrival and forget about it for the... More

We stayed here on a mountain biking weekend and found the staff very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the 3 person room on the top floor, clean, nicely decorated with everything you need. A great place to stay.

My wife and I stopped here for 1 night on the 13/09/14. It was booked the same day.
