Brilliantly located, great accommodation with matching breakfast, very attentive staff with lovely disposition, lots of rooms have a poor outlook but you only have to sleep there, it's my third visit and can't wait for a return

This hotel is a must with lovely friendly staff in a great location and serving great food. I have never visited the Lakes before - but will do so again and of course the Regent will be my choice of hotel.

Return visit to this excellent hotel, superior service, and superb restaurant. Steak night is always very good value, and range of menu for breakfast is surprisingly wide. Individual rooms- for a real treat try room 34 The Loft with stunning views over Windermere.

Just got back from a fantastic weekend in the Lakes, The Regent Hotel, Ambleside. We booked it direct as we had seen how nice the hotel looked before on a previous trip to the lakes, was also a bonus to find out it was dog friendly so Clarkson came with us. The hotel is perfectly located, the rooms are to... More

This is our 5th visit to the Regent. It has become a bit of a tradition to come here in January. Something to look forward to. As usual we weren't disappointed. The service is excellent, food is delicious and plenty of choice, nice wine list and fab bar. We were given the room we requested. The lady on reception even... More

My partner and I enjoyed a "shopping day" in Ambleside. Other other attractions are easily accessible and we had a wonderful walk along the river bank at Elterwater on the... More

We have stayed in the Regent on a number of occasions but for one reason and another we hadn't been back for a few years - on returning we were very pleased with our 2 night stay. The location is very good across the road from Windermere and the pier to catch steamers around the lake - limited availability in... More

My wife and I have just enjoyed a 2 night stay on DB&B in a superior room in the garden. The room was spotless, the choice of breakfast was great ( highly recommend the fell walker breakfast ) and the restaurant food is amazing. Staff all very polite and helpful, will be returning soon.
