We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Amboseli Lodge in Ambleside, where we received a fantastic greeting from Gwen who immediately made us feel welcome to their guest house with a cup of tea on arrival. Our bedroom (Loughrigg) had a lovely outlook over the park to the church and the hills beyond and was well thought... More

Many thanks to Gwen & Reg for a relaxing & enjoyable long week-end at the Amboseli. Excellent value room & breakfast with a warm welcome & helpful tips on all things Ambleside. Parking spots at the back a big plus point.

We recently spent three nights in this very comfortable B&B in a great location in a delightful town. Hosts Gwen and Reg could not be more accommodating and enjoyable to be around. The room was spotless, and their garden really a great place to relax after a day of exploring the beautiful Lake District.

After 2 weeks of 4* B&B's which varied in standard and quality, we arrived at Amboseli Lodge with no great expectations. How wrong we were. Greeted by Gwen with a lovely cup of tea we were shown to our rooms which were spotless, modern and above all homely. Nothing had been spared to ensure guests comfort. Parking problems in Ambleside... More

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
