Stayed for one night only on the way to Scotland, staff were friendly and helpful. Had a few drinks in the bar but ate out as there was a function in the dining room. The breakfast the next morning was however utterly delightful, with multiple choices to suit all appetites, late breakfast was available for those fancying an early walk... More

only booked for one night on my wife's birthday and we both wished it was for more. All staff, and I mean all staff were friendly, respectful and could not do enough for us both plus our little Border terrier was made very welcome. The evening meal was excellent as was the service. They even bothered to give my wife... More

We stayed for one night on our trip up to Scotland. We returned as the first time we visited we found The Regent to be excellent. Second time was probably a little better. Of the 4 hotels we stayed in this had by far the most comfortable bed and the only one I managed a proper night's sleep in -... More

We stayed here for valentines weekend. The hotel and staff are very welcoming and nothing seemed to much bother. Our room was modern but it felt cosy and not over the top. It was a spotlessly clean. We had a set course meal which was delicious and the portion sizes were not overwhelming.we did not eat in the bar but... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in February. Staff were all mega friendly and welcoming. We only had the breakfasts but that was standard spread, but cooked well and tasty. The room had a view of the lake which was lovely, and the bed and facilities were fine. The only negatives were the room was so hot, we had to have... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review the feedback is really important to us. Sorry to hear about the air conditioning it's a pity you didn't mention this while you were here as it is a relatively new system so it shouldn't make that sort of noise. Also, you can control the heating with a thermostat on... More

We stayed over the weekend just after New Year. Very impressed with this hotel. Excellent location just a stroll from Ambleside Pier where you can take a boat trip across Lake Windermere. The hotel also offers vouchers to gain a 10% discount on the trips. The hotel is beautifully furnished and has a lovely ambiance, with a cosy bar and... More
