I could recommend this Hotel to everybody the Staff are polite,and very helpful.I also would recommend to book direct better price than Booking.com. The location was perfect for touring around the area and the lake. The food was 5 star and the treatment from the staff during our stay was also 5 star.

Fantastic experience lovely room, spotless clean, food amazing, staff very friendly and helpful nothing was to much trouble. We will definatly be back. Hotel across the road from Lake Windamere, boat trips round the lake with stops if you want to explore. Lots of out door activities and amazing scenery.

We spent two nights at this lovely hotel over the Easter holiday. All of the staff were friendly, attentive and always went that little bit further, which often seems difficult to find these days. The hotel itself has a contemporary feel, thanks to its decor, but service and their approach is more traditional. The location, which is just across from... More

Used the hotel for family breakfast (2 adults, one child). The reason we were there is because of the outstanding quality and service we received the last time !!! Very happy to say that The Regent continues to offer outstanding quality, value and service. Other hotels in the Lakes, take note, Its really not that difficult. Offer your clients a... More

Just returned from a lovely short break at the Regent Hotel in Ambleside. The location is perfect - right on the Lake and within a short walk of town and all the shops and restaurants. Fantastic walks right from the hotel. The rooms are lovely and clean and the staff were very attentive and friendly. We took our little dog... More

Enjoyed another stay at the Regent. This was the sixth visit and we were not disappointed. Recent refurbishment of the downstairs area works extremely well. There are many spots now to sit and enjoy the lake view from the inside as well as the outside areas. Service across the hotel continues to be of a very high standard. Breakfast and... More

We came to the hotel with our 2 years old. The staff were very friendly and kind to us and especially our daughter! They sorted out any of our small issues we had and were very helpful. We enjoyed all the food and the choice at breakfast was excellent. The DVDs also helped keep us entertained in the evening. Rooms... More

This was the first time we stayed at the regent hotel - it will not be the last! The room excellent despite being on the small side. We liked that we could change the radiator temperature with the weather being so temperamental. We also liked the standard sized toiletries which are so much nicer than miniatures. I have never seen... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel for 2 nights on a trip to see Wordsworth's daffodils! The setting is perfect , just across the road from the Lake. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was spotlessly clean and the under floor heating in the bathroom was an added bonus! The breakfast is in a class of its... More
