We always look forward to our visits to the Regent. The staff in all areas are so friendly and efficient. Our room in the hotel was immaculately clean and comfortable. Nice to have air conditioning. The atmosphere in all parts of the hotel is very relaxed. We particularly enjoyed our breakfast which is served till 12. Lovely choice and beautifully... More

Second time staying here, in the garden room. For starters, the room was spacious, bed comfy and good facilities. Nice touch was the robes, which we didn't get at the previous hotel we stayed at!!! The staff were all really helpful and polite and made you feel welcome. A particularly good thing was the breakfast - served from 08.00 til... More

We had originally booked a standard room for a one night stay but on checking the website days before we were due to arrive, we noticed that the garden suite had become available and upgraded to that instead, a brilliant move! The room was warm (you can control the heating yourself) and spacious with lovely lake views, the bed huge... More

Booked this hotel through late rooms but did check trip advisor first. The hotel was a real gem. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Food in the restaurant was superb. My only criticism the 2 rooms we had booked were on the small side with not a lot of room either side of the bed.

What can I say other than a great hotel with great food. From the moment we checked in it was apparent that The Regent Hotel was a very friendly and professional establishment. I found ALL staff very polite and professional in their duties. Room clean and tidy. Breakfast probably the best I have had in a hotel with the choice... More

We stayed in this hotel this weekend with our three month old daughter, slightly nervous as it was our first time away together. We called the hotel about our requirements (and got a better deal booking through their website) and they were very friendly and explained they would sort a cot bed and put us in a quiet room. They... More

This was our second visit to the Regent Hotel. We like its location not far from the lake with an easy walk into Ambleside. The food served in the restaurant and service was excellent. On the first night we both decided on the ‘Trio of Fish’ this was so tasty and well presented. The breakfast is also very good (especially... More

We stayed to celebrate our wedding anniversary, it has become a bit of a regular thing. As ever everything was perfect, I don't think that we have stayed in any hotel where you are made to feel so welcome and at home. I'd love to pick out a member of staff as being excellent but they are all as excellent... More
