Stopped at the Cherry Garth for two nights from Sunday 10th August 2014. Room was clean and tidy although perhaps by modern standards a little tired. However everything worked and there was plenty of hot water. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice, we opted for the cooked to order English breakfast. Hot and tasty! Only a quick ten minute...

I dont really like to give a bad review to private businesses, perhaps when there are difficult times, but.... There will always be people wanting to stay in a great location in the beautiful Lake District so why not aim to please them! The time warp and quite honestly, shabbiness, is unexcusable and embarrassing considering the usual standard rates for... More

We (my wife and I) stayed in Cherry Garth between 5th - 7th October 2014... We booked after seeing the website and, were very, very disappointed in the room we were given. On arrival we were not welcomed or even met with a smile. Appalling!! our room (10) was on the top/attic floor which was creaky and noisey. The room... More

The facade of this guest house is very deceptive as soon as you get inside this building you smell a musky damp smell hitting your senses then you see the dated carpet and decor. Your first welcome is at the reception where you sign in and given a key then told how to get to your room, do not expect... More

We stayed just one night at Cherry Garth and it suited us very well. The location was very handy, both for Ambleside and the pier at Waterhead, and there was a lovely garden. Our room was pleasant, clean and quiet. Breakfast catered for all tastes, with good range of cereals, juices, jams, etc. and the cooked breakfast went down well,... More

Decor is dated and the whole building needs some TLC. Considering it is a 19th century house it is lacking in character. Breakfast was average, eggs either overdone or underdone, bacon was just shown to the pan and the grilled tomato was almost raw; and a very short breakfast serving period of 1 hour from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m...

We stayed here 14th September for one night. Plenty of parking space and nice gardens. We stayed in room 8 which was clean and spacious and bed was mega comfy! Breakfast was tasty with plenty of choice. Ambleside was only a 5 minute walk up the road. Some people might say it was a bit outdated and in need of... More

Cherry Garth is located a 5 min walk away from the lake and from the centre of town which was wonderful!. Clean, cosy, quiet rooms with excellent service and ample parking space. we enjoyed our two night stay here.

Positive points - large rooms, very close to Ambleside town centre, friendly owners, good breakfast.. The rest - an extremely tired, dated room rated at 4 star, which in my opinion was completely out of step with the reality. There was mould around the bath, the carpets were stained, the net curtains were dirty, the paintwork was mouldy and cracked,... More
