We stayed over the weekend just after New Year. Very impressed with this hotel. Excellent location just a stroll from Ambleside Pier where you can take a boat trip across Lake Windermere. The hotel also offers vouchers to gain a 10% discount on the trips. The hotel is beautifully furnished and has a lovely ambiance, with a cosy bar and... More

Stayed for a night the weekend before Christmas with my partner as a festive treat. Very impressed that although check-in wasn't until the afternoon our room was ready at 11:30am, with the pre-ordered prosecco chilling in an ice bucket. The room was an excellent size, with a large comfy bed and a decent bathroom. The staff were welcoming and friendly,... More

My fiancé and I booked two nights at the hotel to celebrate her 40th birthday. From the minute me checked in to when we checked out, our stay was faultless. Every member of staff were exceptional and they all couldn't do enough for you. We stayed in one of the garden rooms no.40, it was clean spacious and decorated to... More

My family and I have been coming to stay at The Regent Hotel for 30yrs! WE LOVE IT! Excellent dinners in the evening and even better breakfasts in the morning. Lovely, clean rooms. The hotel's in a great location just outside of Ambleside itself but certainly within walking distance.

Another lovely break. One of my favourite places to stay. Great food, lovely rooms and very helpful staff. Breakfast cooked to order and served until noon. Evening menu always has plenty to choose from with a nice wine selection. What more could you ask for? Looking forward to our next visit.

Stayed here with my girlfriend for two nights over New Year's Eve. Stayed in a room at the back on the ground floor. No noise at night for both nights. Room clean and tidy and the shower was superb. No bath but that's not a problem for us but may be for some people. Full English breakfast did the trick... More

We arrived and the very smiley receptionist pointed us to the bar where our coats where taken and to have predinner drinks. Our order for food was taken and when it was ready we where shown through to the restaurant. The food was lovely and very prompt and friendly service. The bar area was homely and the head barman certainly... More

Stayed Friday & Saturday in a standard room which is in the main hotel and I have to say it was the most comfortable bed we have ever had!!!!! Staff were brilliant, friendly but not too fussy. Stayed for dinner & breakfast on both days and couldn't manage a desert - food was great. Only downside for me is they... More

We stayed here for one night in December and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There is a good sized off road carpark for guests and the reception staff were really friendly when we arrived. My boyfriend had arranged for chocolates and a balloon to placed in the room for my birthday, these were well presented with flowers and a card so... More

we didn't stay here but had lunch here which was beautiful and went back the following evening for steak night (Monday's and Thursday's) it's £28 per couple and you get steak, chips, salad and a bottle of red or white wine! It was gorgeous! Would definitely recommend it!
