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

I booked this hotel as part of my husband's birthday treat This hotel does things properly & efficiently but the staff are also friendly; I have been to places before where although staff were efficient they were stand offish. Staff at the Regent are pleasant & helpful would stay here again.

We booked this hotel a few weeks in advance. Had a friendly welcoming and were taken up to our room by the lady on reception. The reception area was very nice. The room was clean but decor wise was expecting a little more from the room as the reception was beautiful and had the wow factor. Restaurant and bar area... More

Oh, what a lovely hotel this is. We have just returned from a three-night stay at the Regent Hotel by the lake and enjoyed our stay hugely in every respect. I and my best friend shared the Latterbarrow suite, which has a view of Lake Windermere, and my mother had one of the single-occupancy rooms upstairs (also with a view).... More

It was some years since we last stayed at the Regent and we were not disappointed on our return. After a warm and friendly welcome the front desk receptionist showed us to our courtyard double room which was easy access for my wife who is recovering from a recent knee op. The room was nicely decorated and heated to a... More

We have stayed here a number of times over the years and have found the Hotel clean, friendly and convenient for access to Ambleside. Safe car parking facilities in view of your room. The breakfasts are the best we have eaten anywhere and are served up to 12pm. This is very convenient when you have a family. I am sure... More

My partner and I are staying next door to the Regent Hotel, at the Quaysiders Club timeshare. We were joined yesterday by some old friends from West Sussex, who had experienced a difficult Sunday rail journey from the south coast, including a cancellation, a late-running train, and a missed connection before we picked them up from Windermere station. So we... More

A big thank you to all the staff! This was our third stay in the Regent and our first with our dog. This is a great hotel in a fantastic location. We arrived very late in the evening so our room was left set up for us, meaning we had no problems with check in. The room was clean, comfortable... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. The hotel is situated just opposite the Waterhead pier in Ambleside and is in walking distance to the shops, bars and restaurants. The room was on the grounds next to the main hotel. The room was big, bright and very clean. The main hotel was also clean and we had a... More
