We stayed here on 24th January and had an absolute wonderful time. The owners are lovely and honestly could not do enough for you. We enquired about the local restaurants and Andy was more than happy to take time out and advise. The room we stayed in was at the front of the house, it was very spacious, had all... More

I stayed here with a couple of friends for a weekend's walking on the hills. The rooms were roomy, clean and very smart. Our host was welcoming, friendly and very helpful with tips around town and suggestions about walks. The breakfasts were superb. The only room for improvement, which wouldn't exactly be easy, would be to provide a bathtub or... More

This is a very good option for accommodation in Ambleside. Great hospitality, good breakfasts, good central location, and a secure parking location nearby (at a VERY reasonable price by Ambleside standards). Our room was clean and comfortable and done up very nicely.

Had a lovely stay here. Guest house was warm and inviting and lovely hosts. Our room, 2 was fab! Like a boudoir all in red, very tastefully done. Immaculate and loved little touches like dvds and bottled water. Breakfast was fantastic and my vegan/vegetarian byfriend catered for. Highly recommend. Only downer and not guest house fault is the disc parking... More

Hospitality without fault for a perfect local guesthouse, information and knowledge settling in helped us greatly, the breakfast service was prompt and delicious and Alan, even gave... More

Having first stayed here a couple of years ago I already knew it was a top guest house. Since then improvements have been made, particularly to the decor. My wife and I were lucky enough to have Room 1. It is spacious, exceptionally clean with a superKing, super comfortable bed and on suite shower room. Everything works. The Melrose also... More

Me and my girlfriend headed to Ambleside for a weekend getaway and were greeted by very friendly staff. Our room was spotless, big and had everything we needed not to mention the beautiful views from the window of the surrounding area. At just a stones throw from 'The Priest Hole', a lovely restaurant and all surrounding pubs, this is quite... More
