We stayed at Hillsdale for two nights in September. We were given a very warm welcome by George and were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready by 1.00. The whole ambiance of Hillsdale is wonderful. Our room was spotless and very well appointed and nothing was too much trouble for George and Lindsey. Breakfast was superb, dining room very... More

Excellent accommodation. Clean, well presented with modern decoration and furniture. Great location close to all local amenities. Bedroom and bathroom on the small side but more than adequate. Free Car parking available. Breakfast hearty.

My husband and I spent two nights (6th & 7th Sept) at this lovely B&B, for a birthday treat for my husband. From the minute you walk in to be greeted by George the owner, we were made to feel welcome. We have stayed in Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the past, and I haven't felt as comfortable as I...

I'm not a big one for writing reviews but feel the Hillside B&B in Ambleside cannot go by without saying what a wonder place George and Lindsey have created. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Throughout our stay any queries were completely covered by their extensive local knowledge, advising all sorts of walks for every explorer, that... More

We came across Hillsdale through Trip Advisor. We plan to return! George's local knowledge is great. Breakfasts were superb. Rooms clean and well appointed. Off road secure parking a real bonus. Ambleside is a good central position for visiting the Lake District. Can thoroughly recommend Hillsdale as we felt cared for.

This was our second visit to Hillsdale and definitely will not be our last. We stayed in room 1 which was lovely and comfortable with everything we needed. George and Lindsey make you feel so welcome and Lindsey's breakfasts are fantastic. The parking is a great asset in Ambleside. It is centrally located and very close to the bus service... More

We stayed at this quaint guest house a week ago with friends on a walking stay, we give this charming guest house 10/10. The owners, George and Lindsey are very friendly, Georges breakfasts are simply perfect! Extreme attention to detail in every manor. The rooms are small but adequate and very comfortable, we found them knowledgeable of the area (especially... More

We stayed for four nights to enjoy the Lake District. Situated on a quiet road, in the middle on Ambleside. We walked each day from the house, without needing to use the car. Plenty of good restaurants and tea rooms within a few hundred metres. Good breakfast selection, with a lovely cooked breakfast each morning (had to be ordered the... More
