Located in the heart of Ambleside, an utterly stunning Lake District town, the Hillsdale b&b was amazing. The rooms are contemporary, with a very home-like feel to them and the room service made it feel more like a hotel. This came to our surprise due to the great affordable value of the place! There was a great choice of breakfast;... More

A fantastic break! Couldn't have asked for more from our stay. Nice, friendly atmosphere and very relaxing. Lovely room and felt assured car was parked in a secure location. We will definitely be visiting again! Thank you to George and Lindsey.

We only stayed for 2 nights (wish it could have been longer!) but were very impressed with this lovely B & B. George and Lindsay were the perfect hosts - friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. The rooms were spotless; tea and coffee making facilities were provided and replenished daily, and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Would... More

Our first time on visiting the Lake District couldn't be better. George and Lindsay at the Hillsdale B&B really were great hosts. From luxury bathroom products to tea/coffee/choc and biscuits in the room to the freshly cooked breakfast in the morning we couldn't have asked for more. George was great at giving directions to beautiful drives and walks as well... More

We both really enjoyed our stay 2 night at Ambleside, we found our accommodation to be comfortable, plenty of tea, coffee or hot chocolate in room. George was at hand to welcome us on our arrival, he seemed to have all the local knowledge of Keswick and surrounding area which we found to be very helpful. The suggestions for the... More
