The hotel from the outside was a lovely oldie worldy type country mansion. On entering we found it very dark and unwelcoming. No one was around for a few minutes when the owners... More

I wish we had seen the bad reviews for this hotel before booking our Groupon deal. I don't normally get involved with leaving reviews, but felt so strongly after our very disappointing stay that I felt I had to leave comments for other unsuspecting guests. Everything negative said about the hotel, rude and incompetent staff and especially the dreaded room... More

3 of us stayed here for 2 nights (rooms 3 and 12). We had one bath towel each for 2 nights, no hand towel. There was no hot water on the first night or day. Exceptionally squeaky beds in room 12 meant whenever anyone moved the other one woke up. When we did have hot water, the shower which was... More

Just back from a two night break at Ambleside Lodge, Nice clean accomodation, within walking distance of Ambleside town Centre. Only downfall for us During our stay was the very dated TV and not being tuned in. (World Cup previews for my husband) He ended up tuning the TV in himself. Maybe management can consider updated to at least a... More
