My husband and I met some friends for a couple of days. We stayed in a lovely spacious suite in the annex; which was a short walk to the main hotel. The view from our lounge was onto the Main Street and beyond on to the lake. The view from our bedroom was on to the small well kept garden.... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, the room was spotless and the staff were friendly not an arrogant manager in sight. The food was of high standard and the breakfasts were terrific, a special thank you to Julie who could not be more helpful. We would certainly come again.

We had the upstairs balcony room. Nice and big and very clean. Dined at the restaurant once, it was pretty good. Breakfast was ok, a but overstated as far as quality. Staff were friendly. It was nice to be near the lake and not in the heart of town.

All the staff were extremely friendly and professional. Room was nice, but a bit warm. Breakfast exceptionally good, especially the scrambled egg and smoked salmon. Decent sized car park. High quality restaurant, nicely laid out and furnished. I walked very briskly into Ambleside town centre and it took 15 minutes - count on 20 minutes if you go at a... More

One Hour wait for Main Course and arrogant manager My wife and I stayed overnight on the way to Scotland. The room was fine as were the staff on reception. The hotel is in an excellent position and, but for our dining experience, we would rate the hotel highly. Dinner was a disaster with staff offering "more bread" every 10... More

We found that The Regent has pleasant, helpful staff, good food and represents good value. The hotel is a fifteen minute walk from Ambleside town centre and two minutes from the lake. The rooms are comfortable and have been upgraded over the years that we have been visiting. Overall the quality of the hotel has been consistently high.

We had lovely comfortable rooms at reasonable prices including a massive breakfast which was provided until 12pm, perfect for lie-ins! The waiting staff were great always helpful and friendly and the chef is amazing. They can cater for gluten and lactose intolerances as well!! Well done all. The jacuzzi bath in the sail loft was broken which was a bit... More

We have been staying at this hotel many times during the past 20 years. The owners pride themselves on providing quality accommodation, great food, and friendly efficient staff. The hotel is situated in a delightful spot close to Lake Windermere. We are already booked to return at the end of August and again in late October.
