We have stayed at Ambleside before but not in this B&B, my wife treated me to a surprise night away from the kids for my upcoming birthday and I am so please she booked the Hillsdale B&B. What a lovely warm welcome, (especially after a detour in pouring rain), we received from George. We were informed of the great places... More

Lost count of the number of return visits now. Still number one for us despite the varied travels we have made over the last few years to places at home and abroad. Whatever the weather or time of year, we are always guaranteed excellent, warm and friendly service from George + Lyndsey. Not just great proprietors but friends as well.

We have visited Hillsdale B and B in Ambleside a number of times and it is now by far our first choice of place to stay in Ambleside. The rooms bright and welcoming and the beds are so comfortable. Everything is thought of, wine glasses and a hot water bottle! The breakfast is superior - especially the Lancashire Sausages -... More

The service at hillsdale is excellent, made very welcome. The rooms are all quaint and are very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The food is excellent always and good choice. Ambleside is the perfect choice for visiting the Lake District lots of restaurants, good walks and even 3 small cinemas, a beautiful little bit of paradise to escape too,

Lovely bed and breakfast full of charm and ole world character. Very homely feel with lots of original style furnishings and furniture. The bedrooms are not very large but full of style and character, beds are comfortable. Breakfast was good quality and simple and well prepared . Lovely location for walking. Good value for money.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Great location, easy parking, a good night sleep, very helpful and friendly owners and fantastic breakfast (10/10)...what more do you want from a B&B? We will definitely be staying here again. Also there's a fantastic restaurant 100 metres up the road - it's a vegetarian, I'm not, my wife wanted to try it, I'm glad... More
