The Regent Hotel is situated on the edge of Lake Windermere, near Ambleside Pier, and is a 10-15 minute walk from the main town. The hotel is decorated in a modern style to a high standard. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a large suite complete with rain shower! The... More

We stayed here for the bank holiday weekend in May. Our room was a family room, it was very dated. Bathroom was very small and the shower cubicle didn't have a door, only a curtain. This meant the floor kept getting flooded, a bit dangerous!! The bath was very small, so if you'd been out walking all day a stretch... More

We booked up this hotel to meet up with friends up from London and found it to be an excellent choice. Because reviews mentioned some rooms were small we booked two superior rooms outside the main building and were not disappointed in our choice as the rooms had a sitting area in addition to an outside veranda. All week we... More

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights over Easter. It is in a good spot for us, as it's close to the water and ferry station, and just a flat 10 minute walk into the town and to restaurants. The breakfast was good as has already been said. Al la carte expensive, and you just sit in breakfast... More

I was here for three nights. Things started well as my room was ready at 12 when I arrived and Emily who checked me in was friendly and efficient. The room (number 6) was small (maybe because there was only one of me I got a small room). I brought plenty of walking gear and there wasn't really enough space... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review we really appreciate the feedback, the room you actually had is only ever used as a small double for single occupancy, just for future reference. Thank you. Regards Andrew Hewitt More

I could recommend this Hotel to everybody the Staff are polite,and very helpful.I also would recommend to book direct better price than Booking.com. The location was perfect for touring around the area and the lake. The food was 5 star and the treatment from the staff during our stay was also 5 star.

Fantastic experience lovely room, spotless clean, food amazing, staff very friendly and helpful nothing was to much trouble. We will definatly be back. Hotel across the road from Lake Windamere, boat trips round the lake with stops if you want to explore. Lots of out door activities and amazing scenery.

We spent two nights at this lovely hotel over the Easter holiday. All of the staff were friendly, attentive and always went that little bit further, which often seems difficult to find these days. The hotel itself has a contemporary feel, thanks to its decor, but service and their approach is more traditional. The location, which is just across from... More

Just returned from a lovely short break at the Regent Hotel in Ambleside. The location is perfect - right on the Lake and within a short walk of town and all the shops and restaurants.
