We stayed three nights in Room 30. This room is entered from a small patio that has a couple of garden seats. The room is quite long with the 'sleeping' area and the 'living' area separated by an arch; by the window is an alcove with a sofa and coffee table. The bathroom is a decent size with a bath...

The superior room was pleasant but only average for the price. What is above average is the quality of the staff and the standard of food - both excellent. No problems at all with wifi which was surprisingly fast. All in all, an enjoyable stay.

Everything about the weekend was excellent. Attentive staff with a helpful and pleasant demeanour who made you feel welcome. Couple that with good food what more could you want....perhaps sunshine & warmth but The Regent certainly supplied that with their welcome. Would definitely recommend to ours and we will be back.

In a peaceful location, close to the lakeside, but only 10 minutes walk from Ambleside town centre. We had a lovely room (the "Sail Loft") with a private balcony - apparently only one of two rooms with a lake view. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent and the Bar Menu represented good value.

Had an excellent stay at The Regent, rooms were a good size and very comfortable. Food was delicious. The staff were outstanding and could not do enough for us. The hotel is in an ideal location for exploring the lakes. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in room 44 for our honeymoon in july 2014. The room was just amazing. Spacious, beautifully decorated and even had a balcony! WOW. We stayed 3 days here, and were not disappointed. We had a maid service that tided round our room during the day and replenished our tea/coffee tray, after a long day out it was nice... More
