All the rooms we have stayed in have been tidy, clean and well furnished. The Hillsdale is in a wonderful spot in Ambleside with restaurants, pubs, shops, buses and walks on your doorstep. There is... More

We are frequent visitors to Ambleside, usually in December for bracing walks and firesides in pubs and can honestly say our two night stay was the warmest welcome yet. We stayed the last few days of the old year with perfect sharp and frosty weather and our initial welcome was wonderful with George's cheer! Our room was immaculate, tasteful and... More

Greeted on arrival by George who checked us in and gave directions to a free parking space a short walk away. Room 7 was very nice, comfortable bed and a modern shower room. The view from the window was very pleasant. Plenty of restaurant options in Ambleside, which George could recommend. Ate at the fulling mill and Sheila's cottage, both... More

Have just got back from 2-nights and would definitely recommend it. Very friendly and helpful hosts, ideal location, excellent breakfast, very comfy bed, very clean room, nice hot shower after a day out walking in somewhat "cool" temperatures. Bliss! Were on hand for any queries we had and even loaned us their copy of a local map for our walk.... More

This is an excellent bed and breakfast. It's spotlessly clean and the breakfast was very good, just how a bed and breakfast should be. I will definitely be back, the owners could not be more helpful and you get a really warm and friendly welcome.
