We arrived late after a nightmare journey and checked in around 8 15.pm. This was no problem as we had phoned ahead to explain why we were going to be late. Owners were very understanding and welcoming. We were given room 19 next to the front door which was brilliant as we had our dog with us and it was... More

Stayed here recently through a deal offer, was a bit apprehensive as Id looked at the reviews beforehand but was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt as everyones tastes are different. On arriving we saw Jean who was busy ironing, we rang the number that was left next to the telephone on reception, Paul answered the phone... More

Really uncomfortable bed, the mattress was very run down that the springs were digging in your back which resulted in lack of sleep and a bad back. The plumbing is on its way out and the toilet didn't flush. Such a shame as we was looking forward to a childfree weekend with a nice lie in.

I discovered Ambleside Lodge via an internet website, it particularly appealed to me because it had "FREE cancellation". I was looking to book a group holiday for a five us as we were climbing Scafell Pike. I rang to ensure I could get all bookings together. Jacqueline informed me she would send a confirmation email but after a few days... More

I stayed at the Ambleside Lodge some years ago and remember being quite satisfied, not so on my recent visit. The place is old and run down, items not working properly in the room include the toilet and two light fittings. The room was dark and miserable although quite clean. The people running the B&B are very friendly but not... More

Clean room, TV reluctant to have many channels and the shower was hopeless. The fault of the previous guests according to Pauls Mum. No inclination to get it fixed. Breakfast adequate although cereals were the cheap variety. Very friendly and basic Hotel probably 3 star rather than 4.

My main problem was I couldn't... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Room was lovely and clean! Loved our jacuzzi bath! The old couple that run the places were lovely and very helpful! Breakfast was included in the price and was amazing!
