We were greeted by the owner who was very welcoming and very friendly,our room was nothing special but... More

When eventually Paul(The owner) arrived, he looked very shifty and after a lot of messing around eventually told us, he had over booked, and there was no room for us, as we had been mistakenly booked...

We arrived at The Ambleside Lodge at 2 pm Monday 7th July to check in. After booking through Groupon for a break away for my partners birthday. 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
