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

We arrived at The Regent last Sunday to a warm welcome from Reception. Everything was perfect from the beautifully presented delicious food to the well trained and obliging staff. The breakfasts set us up for the day. There was a superb choice and plenty to eat. Dinners in the restaurant were a feast for the eyes as well as for... More

We booked the "sail room" for two nights which was superb.All the Staff were friendly and efficient.Nothing was too much trouble. Don't bother walking to Ambelside to have your evening meal stay in the Hotel or use the adjoining local restaurants.The hotel is a great base for exploring the Lake District.Boat trips are just 200yds away with 10percent off if...
