Had 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend at the Regent, a hotel we have been going to since 2002. The hospitality and breakfast remain of excellent standard. One area for improvement perhaps is around the description of superior rooms. A particular attraction for us is the seclusion and outdoor balcony space that you get with the superior garden rooms....

Perfect location looking onto the lake and only a 5 minute walk into Ambleside. We booked superior rooms which were a great size with all the comfort and amenities you would want plus a great shower! Food was excellent - tried both the A La Carte and Bar Menu and the staff were faultless especially all the breakfast team. I... More

We have just returned from 3 nights in The Regent. We had an excellent weekend and cannot fault the hotel in anyway. We had a recently renovated Superior room which was immaculate and extremely comfortable. Breakfasts were fantastic - anything you can wish for is on the menu and we had a bar meal on one of the evenings which... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend and stayed in room 27. Over the phone we were told that the room had been recently renovated but we found nothing to indicate that was the case. It reminded us of a chalet room. It was small, the bathroom was tiny. There was not a proper door on... More

Just returned from spending another great week at the Regent, Ambleside. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the last 15 years. I suppose this speaks for itself. We love the English Lakes and enjoy glorious days out on the fells. We find the Regent a convenient starting point for each day's excursion. The hotel is ideal for... More

We stayed three nights in Room 30. This room is entered from a small patio that has a couple of garden seats. The room is quite long with the 'sleeping' area and the 'living' area separated by an arch; by the window is an alcove with a sofa and coffee table. The bathroom is a decent size with a bath...

The superior room was pleasant but only average for the price. What is above average is the quality of the staff and the standard of food - both excellent. No problems at all with wifi which was surprisingly fast. All in all, an enjoyable stay.

Everything about the weekend was excellent. Attentive staff with a helpful and pleasant demeanour who made you feel welcome. Couple that with good food what more could you want....perhaps sunshine & warmth but The Regent certainly supplied that with their welcome. Would definitely recommend to ours and we will be back.

In a peaceful location, close to the lakeside, but only 10 minutes walk from Ambleside town centre. We had a lovely room (the "Sail Loft") with a private balcony - apparently only one of two rooms with a lake view. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent and the Bar Menu represented good value.
