We booked quite far in advance therefore we paid very little esspecially for Ambleside. The hotel is amazing, after a recent refurb the rooms at 10/10, space,... More

We chose to stay at the a White Lion as we know Ambleside well and knew that it was very central. In arrival the pub was busy but we were greeted straight away in a friendly and helpful manner. Our room was very clean, warm and bright; we were on the corner room overlooking Market Place but it was quiet... More

My husband, 9 year old son and I have just had a wonderful weekend stay in the White Lion. I cannot fault this hotel and highly recommend it. The rooms were modern, bright, large and clean. This in itself was enough to want me to return again but on top of that I can honestly say that I have never... More

We had 3 days away here staying for 2 nights. As soon as we got there staff couldn't have been more helpful. The room was very clean, warm and comfortable looking out over the main town. The menu was excellent, both at lunch time and night time. We couldn't believe the choice and the prices. Everyone was friendly and made... More

Stayed in a double room here which had two single beds pushed together, providing a ridge in the middle. Very disappointing. Room itself was clean and bathroom ok. Breakfast was just above average and it was an ok place to stay but wouldn't be my first choice and I would say at £82 it is not very good value for... More

We were made very welcome when we stayed for a night 5th January. The staff couldn't be more helpful sorting out a room error for us, we had a great meal, my husband said the beer was good and we have a comfortable night in a lovely room, and breakfast was the icing on the cake.
