Stayed in the Bungalow which was ideal for us as we took the dog. Lovely and clean with everything you needed. Breakfast was lovely, picked what you wanted the night before and was ready within 5 minutes of sitting down the next morning. Rob was very friendly and informative and must say a very good driver as I had to... More

We stayed here with the in-laws for two nights, my husband was taking part in the Great Northern Swim. The owner was warm and welcoming, informing us about where to find places to eat and directions to Windermere. We were told the breakfast times and how to order. Our room was lovely, bright and very clean, we had a look... More

Ideally situated near the centre of Ambleside for all amenities and buses, Ferndale Lodge is strongly recommended. It does not pretend to be anything other than a well run establishment that is clean and tidy and has the usual room facilities that people now expect. If you are looking for luxurious accommodation and Lakeside views you will be disappointed .... More

Very relaxing hotel to stay in. If staying here use the public car park to get to rear of hotel for parking ! Fully recomend a stay here. Only down side was privacy in rooms at the front could do with net curtains. For somewhere to eat can recommend Lily's about 50yards away.
