The White Lion is in a fantastic location. The staff were incredibly warm and welcoming; one young lady in particular (sorry didn't get her name) seemed to be everywhere and was always friendly. We were in Room 1 as a family of four and it was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. The bonus was a table and two chairs in... More

The location of the White lion in the heart of Ambleside is great. The service and friendliness of staff was excellent. The food is not fine dining but good pub grub and is good value. We stayed 2 nights in a spacious room with a good sized bathroom. We both slept well and the stay was comfortable. The only downside... More

Wonderful trip, such an amazon area, I'm so glad we finally visited. I would recommend and will definitely be back. A lot of the trip involved walking and would have been slightly nicer if there had been better weather so would probably come back in the summer

Great atmosphere and location. Friendly staff and on site parking included. Our room was clean, spacious and comfy. We had a lovely evening meal and enjoyed the buffet breakfast which had plenty of choice and all fresh.

We stayed at the Innkeepers at the White Lion Hotel in May this year. The rooms were impeccable, spacious, welcoming and comfortable. We were travelling with our two young children, ages 4 and 2, and there was plenty of space for the Queen Bed, the Queen Sofa Bed, and the Portacot in the room. The little sitting nook by the...

We had a family room which was large and newly decorated and was very nice. There was a big flat screen TV and... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. The room was modern, clean and a good size. Staff were friendly. The continental breakfast was good and had a good range of items for such a small hotel. We had one evening meal in the pub which was excellent and good value. We will be staying again.
