Great welcome from gwen and reg who could not have made us feel more at home, with lovely cup of tea on arrival. Room spotless, inviting, attractive. Decor bang up to date, really nice and well thought out. Some really nice touches like the magic mirror in the bathroom which came on via sensor and de misted for shaving. Wicked!... More

We have stayed at the Amboseli Lodge on numerous occasions, and would not go anywhere else. Both Gwen & Reg make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive. All the bedrooms are absolutely spotless, and the breakfasts are first class too..... Truly a home from home...

We have been visiting Ambleside for 35 years and this is our best b&b experience. Gwen & Reg are great hosts. We were served a lovely cuppa on arrival and made to feel very welcome. Room was lovely, very comfortable and spotlessly clean with a delicious breakfast. We have booked another break in October and can't wait. Linda & Austin

We knew we were in for a wonderful four-night stay at Amboseli Lodge when Gwen came out to meet us at the bus stop as we arrived! Our room (Wansfell) was big and comfortable and spotlessly clean, with a stunning view of Wansfell Peak as well as a lovely backyard garden space that was available for us to enjoy. We... More

This was my first stay at Amboseli Lodge on the recommendation of my parents and I was not disappointed. The room was spotlessly clean, with amazingly comfortable memory foam beds. Gwen and Reg were fabulous hosts showing a genuine interest in our plans and advising us on the best route, sights etc. Reg's scrambled eggs are not to be missed!... More
