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.

This guest house is in a great location being only a small walk from the centre of Ambleside. We booked a small double room and these rooms are very small however it was good value for money at only £55 including breakfast. The breakfast was good but the dining room is a little small and over crowded. We did not... More

Location perfect. Has parking, though a little tight but manageable and a bonus here! The staff/owner are friendly and attentive and the place is lovely and clean. Our room was at the top and the wifi was a bit hit and miss but it's available free and every now and then, it's good to get away from it isn't it??... More

We had an overnight stay here on a Uni visit trip to UK. This was a clean and comfortable B and B. It is really close to the centre of Ambleside. We would have liked to sample the breakfast but had to leave early for our next uni. Good value for money. We will be back.

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....
