How can you make chicken taste so tough. Had a chicken burger - the description did not match what arrived. Tough chicken probably microwaved within an inch of its life. Had a chicken balti - all really badly microwaved tough and tasteless. Also had the lasagne again microwaved. Each one costing nearly £10 a time. Go and eat somewhere else!

Me and my partner visited this hotel in sept 2014, first impressions were ok, however we struggled to find the parking, and when we did it was very small and our car got blocked in! Despite this the hotel was in a fantastic location right in the middle of Ambleside, the staff were friendly and the hotel rooms were clean... More

The Queens Hotel Ambleside Conveniently located in the town centre, with easy access to the shops. Friendly staff, good beer. Separate Cellar bar,  mostly a sports bar. Serve a good beer and have a good selection of brands behind the bar.  Not somewhere I would choose to say, purely my own preference.  No views of the lake nor the surrounding... More

We stayed in Ambleside for a week at beginning of October, and ate at the Queens at least 4 times. It has the best of both worlds, being a pub and having a nice area laid out to eat. There is a good variety on the menu ( something for everyone) Large portions and reasonably priced, also it was only... More

We was above the bar and cellar which kept us awake till after 2. Would not stay again but was not dreadful. Just lack of sleep puts me off... More

My husband and I have been to the bar here every time we've visited Ambleside (more than 10 years) and will continue to come back. The selection of local beer on tap is fabulous and the food is a joy. Today I had the best sausage and mash I've ever had and my husband, a fan of the lamb henry,... More

Nothing regal at the Queens Pub in Ambleside. Absolutely dreadful place Overpriced outdated and service that would probably be appalling even in Tudor times! £2.10 for a 100ml bottle of tonic water - outrageous! Lacklustre and filthy decor that looked as tired as the staff who showed no interest in serving the customers You were made to feel like they... More

The hotel was run by very friendly and helpful staff. Our twin room was clean, comfortable and just right for my daughter and I. Dated is a description I have seen on this website but it is not. It just has olde worlde charm which fits in well with the area. We had a lovely evening meal there which was... More

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.
