we stayed for a one night midweek break for which we paid £49.50. For the money we paid, we didn't have anything to complain about. We were greeted with a friendly welcome and were allocated room 2 which is located at the rear of the building, which offers nice views. The premises also offer limited parking at the rear also....

We booked four double rooms for three nights over the New Year period. From the moment we arrived everything was great - a warm welcome, very clean rooms, comfy beds and pillows and a great breakfast. Perfectly located in the centre of Ambleside with parking at the back - which was brilliant as it was so busy everywhere it was... More

This is a lovely B&B! Room is clean and bed is very comfy. Very quiet too. Staff are very friendly. Breakfast was lovely however the tables were very close together but I expected this in a B&B. Parking is available at the back of hotel Location is great 1 min walk to pubs and shops! I would definitely go back!!!

Staying at Ferndale Lodge in Ambleside was the definitely the best choice I made. The location is absolutely central to shops, bars and the Glorious Lake Windermere - which is only a ten minute walk away. Surrounded by beautiful scenery. Ferndale has beautiful clean rooms, and Rob the proprietor makes you feel so welcome. The Breakfast served are to die... More

We stayed at the Ferndale Lodge in October. The room given to us was away from the main building at the back of the property. It was nice and quiet. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was lovely. Great location. Just think that the rooms were average for the price paid. This did not stop us from getting out... More

We stayed at Ferndale Lodge in October and were very disappointed, considering all the favourable reviews it had received on this site. The heating in the rooms did not come on until 7pm so it was really cold when you came in from a walk and wanted a hot shower before going out to eat.. We complained but nothing happened.... More

Having stayed here before and had a lovely room we expected the same quality of room. However our 'small room' was tiny attic room with a very small window that we struggled to see out of due to it being high up. Had Rob the owner been available we would have asked to be moved. Still great location, friendly staff... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend, and we really enjoyed our stay. It is very close to both lake Windermere and the centre of the town, so just a few minutes walk to the shops, or to the restaurants in the evening. The breakfasts were very good, the food was fresh and we didn't have to wait... More

Very central in Ambleside, minutes away both from the city centre and from the lake. Accomodation is very basic. Small rooms. No lift. Room service left much to be desired. English breakfast was good and fresh. It is pre-ordered and served on the table. Unfortunately the service was very slow and to say the least one would have expected it... More
