My husband and I were lucky enough to spend four nights at this lovely hotel. We were assigned the best of the newly refurbished "Hideaway rooms", elegantly decorated, very comfortable and each day immaculately clean. The staff were most welcoming, efficient and clearly proud to be working there. We will return...a great stay!

We have visited the Lake House before however on this occasion opted for one of the 'hideaway' rooms situated behind the main building. The room was spacious and well appointed, even including a large floor standing fan which was very welcome given the warm weather during our stay. Our room had an outside patio area with a table and two... More

My husband and I were driving throughout the UK, and Ambleside was a lovely place to stop for the night. We called in and booked a 'hideaway room' which is self contained and adjacent to the main building. It was a wonderful spot with a gorgeous view across to the lake. After travelling for a long time, it was nice... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights in room 5 (Superior Room). ROOM: Our room was very spacious. It didn't feel like we were in a hotel or B & B, but rather a well appointed living room. The room and bathroom were immaculate. We had two chairs in front of a window which gave us a nice view of... More

Managed to book a last minute 1 night stay & totally satisfied from start to finish. We occupied Superior Room 3, a Four Poster Double with great view facing the Lake. The bed was super comfy, and duvet equally so. The Bathroom was finished to a very high standard too. Location wise, it's a 10 minute walk to the centre... More

Just spent the weekend here with my partner. Hotel in a lovely location and very close to the lake but thought it was a little expensive for what it actually was.

Thank you for your review, we are somewhat surprised at some of your comments as nobody has mentioned them previously only the carpet, which has a fleck in the pattern and it does look as though it hasn't been vacuumed but we can assure you this is not the case as we take a pride in the cleanliness of the...

Absolutely great location for romantic weekend away. Close enough to Ambleside for the lovely little shops and restaurants. Far enough to avoid the hustle and bustle of Ambleside, especially the heavy-traffic. Only 1 minutes walk to the shores of Windermere, where there is a brilliant pub and cafe to take in the fabulous lake-side scenery. Ended up the evening sat... More
