Great hotel to stay in. Just across the road from Lake Windermere. Stunning views. The rooms were lovely. Would recommend eating in the hotel. Good value and lovely surroundings. 10 minute walk into Ambleside.

We decided to book up following refurbishment, weve stayed in one of your garden and courtyard rooms which were great, and twice in main hotel.

Stayed at the Regent at half term for a relaxing break, upon arrival checked into room which was attractive, spacious and very clean in a pretty setting. We decided to have dinner in the hotel's restaurant and we were very disappointed; small portions on barely warm plates, microwaved vegetables and overly expensive for the quality and what it was. Breakfast... More

Recently spent 2 nights at this hotel and can definitely recommend. Firstly, the location is excellent with the ferry to Bowness just across the road and the town just 10 minutes walk away. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We just enquired if they had rooms suitable for a disabled person (for possible future visit... More

This is a hotel that is just right, and shows so many hotels with more grand designs how it should be done, The room was bright and comfortable. The staff were friendly and attentive. The breakfast was the very best Lakeland breakfast ever. All terrific value for around £100 per night. So many hotels try, but so few get it... More

We used this hotel as a base to explore the Lakes. It's jut outside Ambleside so you don't get the noise of the tourists but close enough to walk into the centre in 15 min. We had room 40 the supirior garden room. It was just bliss. The hotel itself was spotless and the food was to die for. The... More
