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!

I have booked a stay with the Ambleside lodge and had to cancel the trip. I had contacted Ambleside Lodge several occasions and left voice messages for them to call back to cancel the booking ten days prior to the booking. I had spoke to a lady on the phone several times who took my details but was unable to... More

We stayed 2 nights here on a bargain deal from one of the well known 'deals' companies. We have seen mixed reviews on here and as ever, did not know what to expect and in fairness, having been to Ambleside Lodge we must agree with several of the comments made but we would also like to speak up on behalf...

Leaving this B&B I could only feel sad. It is run by an elderly couple and their son. As we arrived other guests were arguing about the spa access, with the lady whose response was she didn't want to get involved! It turns out the hotel has 4 spa passes, and 20 rooms - you do the maths and DON'T... More

This was a terrific B&B and we were thrilled to get a room here. We stopped in around 11:00am and Paul (the owner) gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. The room was ready for us right away and was large and very nice, on the main floor facing the horse paddock (we later found out this was the... More

We have just returned from a lovely 3 night break and have had a truly relaxing trip. On checking in, Paul made us feel truly welcome. We received a free, very welcome, upgrade and were allocated room 11. The room, as the pictures show, has been refurbished recently and is as good as you would expect in many hotels. The... More
