We received a really warm welcome and the room was beautiful - spotlessly clean and really nicely decorated, especially liked the toiletries in the bathroom! The breakfast was excellent. Would definitely stay there again!

Yet another excellent stay at George and Lyndsey's lovely guest house. I just happened to mention how much I enjoyed the sausages and on the 2nd morning I was given 2 !! Then when checking out we were presented with a pack of sausages to bring home - marvellous. We don't think there is anything more these two great people... More

We thought the room was tastefully decorated, with lots of storage and space. It was very warm when we arrived, we adjusted the temperature to a lower temperature that we found more comfortable, but for those that require a warm room for comfort, you won't be disappointed. Breakfast was a good size, kept us going for the day. A little... More

Fantastic welcome to a warm and cosy B+B close to the centre of Ambleside. George was very knowledgeable about the Lakes and was a great host over breakfast. The B+B was spotlessly clean and well equipped. We will definitely return

The proprietors of Hillsdale B&B (Situated on Church St Ambleside) Lindsey & George on arrival were as friendly as ever and we were soon discussing what to do over our weekend stay. They are both very knowledgeable of local things to do and where to eat and drink tips are always a must when you first meet them both. Handy... More

You would stay at this B & B just for the hosts, George and Lindsay. They are so friendly, welcoming and kind, and go above and beyond to help you or give you tips or directions on what to see in the area. The B & B is centrally located and very close to shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and the... More

A good quality Bed & Breakfast in Ambleside, clean and very comfortable bedrooms with good facilities. Excellent quality cooked breakfast that is very filling. Very welcoming and warm hosts are George and Lynsey who are very helpful at all times. One slight let down was the hot water pressure.

This was our third stay at Hillsdale, we stayed for 3 nights and it was just as good and enjoyable as before. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. Breakfast is a good choice of cereals, fruit and juices. The cooked breakfast sets you up for the day. George and Lynsey always make you feel welcome and are very friendly. George... More

Our daughter paid for us to go away and booked us into 'Hillsdale' in Ambleside. It was the first time we'd been away together without the children in 11 years - and we were not disappointed! Not only was the venue lovely, clean, great facilities, it was tastefully decorated and an ideal location - George and Lyndsay that run it... More
