We have stayed at the Wanslea three times now in the last 12 months and it is now our go to place in Ambleside. There is always a warm welcome. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. We most recently stayed in the Rock n Roll room and have also stayed in a standard room as well as the Africa... More

Excellent guest house. Extremely clean and always made to feel most welcome. We were there with our Black Lab and even he got a sausage for breakfast! Nice selection for breakfast which was all really nice. I'd certainly recommend Wanslea to anyone looking for a great B&B.

Came away with my husband for my birthday weekend. Not stayed here before but couldn't be happier. The host was brilliant and so welcoming. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit salad and a well cooked full English. Our room (the four poster) was clean and looked beautiful. Will definitely visit again in the future xxx

We have just spent a weekend at the Wanslea. There were six of us and a dog. There was everything we needed, lovely rooms expecially ours which was the Africa room. Breakfast was excellent, such variety and plenty of it. Even the dog wasn't forgotten at breakfast. Thank you to our hosts.

The guest house was excellent as was the owner who looked after us very well. The breakfast was to die for, being a vegetarian myself this was on the menu as a full English, and I certainly was full. In addition to this there was tea or coffee and fruit juice, endless rounds of toast, with cereals and fresh fruit,... More

I think that our week in April was the 5th year at Wanslea which should tell readers all that they need to know! I was very pleased to have fresh fruit salad every morning for breakfast as I am diabetic. Richard seeks out all the best ingredients locally such as bacon & kippers & as a result the breakfasts are... More

We had a great stay at the Wanslea in March, we would definitely go back!!. Great comfy bed in a clean, very adequate room. Fantastic breakfast, to set us up for the day. A really excellent location with some lovely restaurants in walking distance. The owner, Richard was so helpful, the last morning we had to leave early and he... More

We have just spent four glorious, relaxing days at Wanslea. Our room was spacious and quiet, with a modern en- suite. Breakfast was fresh and appetising, and every whim was catered to. The location is only a few minutes walk to the lakeside or the town centre.

Or they'll all be wanting to stay here and I won't be able to get a room! I really had a great time staying here. Richard, the owner, ordered sunshine for during my stay and delivered! No one gets sunshine in March! We even had snow which was a bonus. My first room was clean and cosy. I could see... More

We stayed here for the Easter weekend and it was splendid. We had the four poster bed room and it was spacious and at the top of the house. The bed was a little uncomfortable to be honest but not the worst. The breakfast was lovely and delicious. A very nice variety in the fruit bowl, with a selection of... More
