Had a lovely couple of days in the lakes with Hillsdale as our base... Lovely clean accommodation, with all the home comforts. Helpful, friendly host, providing helpful tips for eating out etc. A delicious breakfast was served each morning, compliments to the chef :-) Located perfectly for exploring Ambleside and the surrounding area. Quiet rooms, never heard a sound during... More

Had a lovely stay for 2 nights at Hillsdale. We were made to feel welcome straight away by George. Room was really nice and the bed was SO comfortable. Breakfast was fab with lots to choose from. Can't fault this place at all. The owner couldn't do enough for us.

We were made very welcome at Hillsdale and would definitely recommend this as a place to stay in Ambleside. It's a real credit to the owners, George and Lyndsey, for all the hard work they do. George was very helpful in providing much needed information for a walk we had planned. Gorgeous room, great location, lovely breakfast to set you... More

Great modern B&B run by George and Lindsey. Excellent communication through the booking process and great local restaurant recommendations. The bay-fronted King room was spacious, well decorated and modern and the ensuite bathroom was great, the shower was hot and overall the room was of a great standard with big wardrobe, chairs in the bay window, large flat-screen TV and...

I booked the Hillsdale based mainly on price and location (which are both excellent), then looked at reviews and thought I might have done OK but that really doesn't do this lovely b+b justice. We stayed for a weekend on from the moment we walked through the door we were very happy. The b+b is bright and clean and warm... More

I would come back to Hillsdale B&B time and time again, we loved it! Beautiful decor - modern, welcoming and homely. The place was spotlessly clean and the rooms very warm and cosy for a damp weekend in March! Our room at the back on the top floor had views of the local mountains and was very peaceful at all...

This was a last minute booking & we have no regrets. The b&b is very clean, great location & comfortable. George has an amazing local knowledge & Lyndsay made the best breakfast. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
