We stayed here for two nights mid week and had a great experience. We stayed in the Arabian room which was very comfortable and comes with a spa bath for a wee bit extra luxury. Richard welcomed us on arrival and made us feel at home. Breakfast was yummy - a great selection with generous portions which were well cooked.... More

On arrival we were welcomed by the proprietor Richard who was very friendly and helpful. We had the 4 poster room (8) which was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and cooked just how we like it. Plenty of advice on how to get about and what to do if requested. All in all a very pleasant stay... More

Stayed at the Wanslea B&B for 3 nights Sunday Monday Tuesday last week. We had booked the Arabian Nights themed room and it did not disappoint. Latterly we had stayed in the Rock and Roll room, but the top floor front of house Arabian room is my preference. B&B is clean, warm and welcoming. The host cannot do enough for... More

When booking this guest house, I didn't realise it would be such a friendly place, the man who ran the hotel was polite and does your breakfast to order. The location was great, literally 1 and half minute from the lake and next to the boat terminal for trips across the lake and the near the town for the evening.

The short walk into Ambleside made this place an ideal location for our break. The breakfast was much better than we could have expected, and we were made to feel welcome by Richard who was an excellent host.

Wanslea is right on the junction of Lake Road and Old Lake Road. It is a short walk into Ambleside and in the other direction to Windermere Lake and the Ambleside Pier. We choose the Africa Room which is on the first floor corner with windows looking onto the main road and the car park. The windows aren’t double glazed,... More

The three day visit was average. The room was average, the room was ok sized but warm. Windows open at night but heard the road cleaner in the morning. The host never really spoke to any of the guest very much even at breakfast. The biggest gripe was the 30 minute window to feed 8 rooms. The food was average,... More

We were greeted on arrival with a warm and friendly welcome by Richard. Nothing was too much trouble and he always found time to speak to all the guests after the delicious breakfast each morning. The room was clean and comfortable and we were particularly grateful of the portable fan which had been thoughtfully provided as the weather was very... More

We had a good breakfast each morning, host was warm and friendly and had a relaxed feel to the place. Excellent... More
