We stayed in the Regent for 2 nights recently and would highly recommend it. Staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was great (and late!) as was supper in the bar. We stayed in a Superior Garden Room which was in fact a chalet and good value for such a well appointed room. Toiletries were great too. Although it is... More

2 Night stay 22 July. Fantastic service from all the team, especially the new waiter George who has natural people and service skills. Good choice of restaurant and bar food, great value for location and cooked perfectly. Comfortable room. Relaxing public areas. Will make a return visit.

Having stayed here previously we booked five rooms for our family to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary. As expected the reception and service throughout was friendly and efficient, food was very good. We stayed on for the rest of the week after the others had left and the staff made sure that a rather large rose, which we had been... More

What a refreshing change, a hotel where the staff were local and genuinely friendly and attentive from the moment we rang on the off chance they may have a room as we drove past one Friday evening after our planned trip went wrong. We had a courtyard double room which was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. A comfortable lounge and... More

We stayed at the Regent for a three night getaway. Fabulous hotel, great staff, fantastic service. We ate from the bar menu every evening, preferring a more casual dining experience and it was beyond our expectations. The food was delicious and beautifully presented- too nice to really call it a bar meal ! We stayed in a garden room and... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Regent. Ideal location, easy to find and ample free parking. We ate in the restaurant our first night and the food was lovely, plenty of choice for breakfast also. We stayed in a courtyard room, which is a quiet location. The service provided here was second to none, staff... More

A very good first impression, the hotel is situated on the lakeside just south of Ambleside and very easy to find it provides ample parking and the main entrance is very inviting. Our room was on the second floor on the back of the building and although well fitted was a little on the small side. We were lucky with... More

Brilliant location, friendly staff and lovely food, 'The Regent' has the lot. Already planning to return. P.S take on the amazing 'The Fell Walker English breakfast' if you're brave or starving. It's fantastic.

Yes I certainly would. Weather aside as we have no control over it, the first impressions on arriving at the hotel were excellent. The young woman on reception (I think she was called Lucy) was very welcoming and made us feel as though we were welcomed guests. The reception area was very clean and tidy with information about the surrounding... More

We have been visiting this wonderful hotel for many years and always have a wonderful stay. This is a hotel that is always evolving, improving,upgrading and maintaining it's excellent standards. We have just stayed for 5 nights in a garden room which was very comfortable and kept very clean by the housekeeping team. All of the staff we met were... More
