3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here when our friends were getting married in Outgate. The hotel was clean, rooms were a decent size. It was our anniversary but we're disappointed that the hotel did not do anything a little bit special for our celebration, a note or even some chocolates or wine would have been a nice gesture. Our friends stayed in the... More

A lovely B&B in the centre of Ambleside. The rooms are incredibly spacious and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We arrived for breakfast about 10 mins before they stopped serving whilst there were still some cooked breakfast options there were more on offer had we been there earlier. Would definitely stay again.

Initially l intended to write a very negative review of this hotel based on initial issues encountered with certain management members. We were informed on arrival that we were not booked in until the following day, for four nights, which would mean us staying a night which would have meant us not being able to collect our children from scout...

Lovely and clean bedroom and bathroom. Lots of space for the travel cot provided. Our little boy was ill in the evening and the young member of staff on duty was really helpful in getting us clean bedding and taking away the bedding he'd been sick on! A fantastic breakfast, lots to choose from, we even asked for croissants. A... More

A really lovely hotel. Very clean, friendly staff. Food was lovely and the staff were helpful in giving recommendations for going out Close by to Lake Windermere. Ten minute walk. Not a lot of parking facilities. But once you are parked up you can walk everywhere

We stayed here for one night and we loved it! We had a superior room which was beautiful, clean, confortable, spacious and modern. We stayed in hilltop room. The only downside to this was the lack of a view. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and we will defiantly be back to stay again.

I have just come back from a 2 day stay with my family and my dog for my birthday and I must say, Ambleside is lovely. The hotel is situated on a main road and is a very short walk to all the restaurants, pubs and shops. Even though it's close, noise wasn't a problem. We booked a dog friendly... More
