Friendly, clean,warm accomodation in a town we could only have previously imagined.(being from Australia) Our hosts, Keith and Wendy, were friendly and informative particularly about surrounding walks as they are keen walkers themselves. Wendy's enthusiasm has inspired us to seek out more walking trails when we return home. My children think Keith cooks "the best eggs ever" after enjoying an... More

Just returned from a two night stay at this small hotel. Ambleside is a lovely town with lots of bars, cafe and restaurants with lots of character, pity the hotel didn't have the same feel. We had room 8 in the eaves, the bathroom was tight to say the least and if you are over 5'0'' you really cannot have... More

Lovely b&b in an excellent location. We had a lovely room and bathroom had a great corner bath. Breakfast was very tasty and of a high standard. Everywhere was exceptionally clean and the owner and her staff were very helpful and friendly, without being intrusive. An excellent stay!

We stayed in the luxury room, so as you might expect the beds would good, there was also a lot of space and a huge TV. Breakfast was also very good, but perhaps more important the owners make you feel they are glad to have you there.

We needed a twin room and were given room 3. Excellent large bay room with king size and a single bed. Very enjoyable stay with good breakfast. Even had a secure parking space 5 minutes walk away. Would recommend a stay here.

Now this is the real definition of customer service. Wendy is a very pleasant lady. Breakfast always on time. Nice bed and breakfast. Served its purpose. Quite affordable too! I stayed in a single room as i was traveling alone. It exceeded expectations for a b&b

Arrived for a two night stay and as nobody there to welcome us we collected our key and information on where to park our car. We had the superior room (3) with a lovely bay window but unfortunately none of the windows closed. This meant we were awoken both mornings at 6am by traffic noise. The bed was lovely and... More

Just returned for our one night stay with some friends and really enjoyed our time here we arrived earlier than the book in time but that wasnt a problem as we were given the key to our allocated parking spot.
