This was our second time at Hillsdale. One year on from our last visit we were so pleased to find everything as perfect as last time. Wonderful hosts and a fantastic hearty breakfast ( thanks Dorothy!!). Room was immaculate and had everything we needed for an amazing weekend in the lakes. We will no doubt be back again. Can't recommend... More

If you are looking for a welcoming, friendly & special B&B, you are at the right place. This B&B shows a lot of little details which tell you that the owners really care for their guests. Besides: Good location, good secure car park a few minutes walk from the b&b, great breakfast. Would return ourselves and would recommend to family... More

We have returned home today after our 2 night stay at Hillsdale in Ambleside. We could not have asked for anything nicer. Our room was lovely and clean with lots of personal touches that made all the difference. The bed was really comfy. George and Lyndsey were really nice, George was very knowledgeable and Lyndsey's breakfasts were perfect. We would... More

We stayed in room 6 on Friday and Saturday of the early May bank holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely and clean, the bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. Special mention should be made about the breakfasts which were delicious. Ideally located for access to fantastic restaurants nearby and outdoor activities. Added bonus of... More

We were greeted on arrival by the son of the proprietor who gave us all the information we needed and directed us to a parking place close by. We were able to unload outside the B&B but on road parking in Ambleside is very limited. Our room was spotless, pleasantly decorated/furnished and very comfortable. There were interesting maps and pictures... More

A friendly welcome on arrival from George with instructions on where to park the cars. (Only 3 minutes walk from the B & B) Our rooms were 2 doubles on the top floor small but great for a weekend break. We did have a problem with the shower but this was dealt with without any fuss. Breakfasts were of a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hillsdale in Ambleside for three nights over Easter. For a start Ambleside is now by far our favourite location in the Lakes so it's a fab place for a B&B. While there are so many B&Bs to chose from in the area, I'd recommend this one. The owners are lovely and friendly. They were... More
