Just had a short stay, the hotel is really smart and the staff were so friendly. Would definitely recommend. I will stay here again when I return to Ambleside! The location is perfect, right in the centre of town.

Was looking for a place to have Sunday lunch and came across the Queen Hotel and looking at it from the outside thought it would be a nice place to eat, the inside is dark and dated, went to the bar to order food, ordered 2 roast beef dinners and was decided not to have the apple pie when the...

After some extra miles on a bike to find the only rooms available in the area this place was a godsend! We booked 2 rooms here - mine was a single, the room right above the front door & it was tiny! It was also very dated, a bit grubby & unappealing. There is an air con unit or something... More

Visited the Queens hotel for a meal, and the food twas that good, revisited again. The Lamb Henry was to die for. Other meals were also excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful. This is a popular place to eat. Our first visit to eat was unsuccessful, as the place was packed. That says a lot. Well worth trying.

It is very cheap, exceptionally cheap. Staff is very kind even if sometimes not very professional, and the location is very good. Also rooms are as clean as possible. Still, mould stains on walls and ceiling, other stains in the shower and sink (that cannot be cleaned), ruined/broken IKEA style forniture and polar temperatures in the room at 7am (central... More

Although this hotel is in need of a revamp / redecoration it is clean and tidy. Our room was small but functional, perhaps a little tired. It was also good value for money considering it's town centre location. The bar was well stocked with good local beers and the food was ok. The staff were very friendly at all times... More

Friendly welcome and decent food. A fussy party was catered for with no problems. I enjoyed the fish and chips, a large helping. Pleasant local beers available. Loved the sticky toffee pudding. Will return in the future.

There are a coupel of spaces round the back of the hottel but in the 3 days we were there the same cars... More
