Gwen and Reg made us feel at home the minute we walked into their house. Our room had everything we needed and breakfast was excellent. Amboseli Lodge is in the centre of Ambleside, opposite a park, and quiet at night despite being on a busy street. A very convenient location for walkers. Highly recommended.

Recently back from our fifth stay with Gwen & Reg and as always we had a wonderful time. Greeted with a lovely hug, kiss and cup of tea on arrival and made to feel completely welcome. The accommodation is always spotlessly clean, cosy and right in the heart of Ambleside so everything in the village is no more than a... More

We enjoyed an excellent stay. The accommodation was very centrally located in Ambleside and was of a very high standard. Breakfasts were excellent and Reg & Gwen could not have been more welcoming and hospitable. We can certainly recommend Amboseli Lodge and will be returning.

Gwen & Reg were really friendly hosts, accommodated our arrival time, made suggestions for walks that we then went on & enjoyed immensely! The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fantastic, with a good variety of choice!! Close to the town centre & the start point of several good walks. We'll be back!!

On our arrival we received a genuine very warm welcome from Gwen and Reg.There are only 3 rooms which creates a cosy/homely feel. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The towels were amazingly soft and luxurious and for a small B & B the extras that were provided such as complimentary toiletries/tea coffee/magazines etc were a lovely touch.... More

We are just home after four nights at Amboseli Lodge. The welcome was warm and the room was delightful, with everything we could want. Breakfast was delicious. The location is good - very handy for Ambleside's many restaurants and shops. We will be back!

Having stayed yet again at this wonderful b & b. words cannot express what a fantastic welcome you receive. The breakfast choice is unbelievable. Rooms spotless, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, bottled water - all provided. Gwen & Reg are the consumate hosts. Better than home from home, once there you don't want to come home. Maps provided for walkers.... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in May due to my husband taking part in the Fred Whitton cycle ride. From beginning to end, Gwen and Reg made us feel very welcome. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable, and the breakfasts were fantastic with a good variety of items offered. When my husband arrived back from the... More
