My wife and I visited Lacet House for the third time this weekend and as always had a lovely stay in great part of the world. The B&B is in a great central location to explore the town and surrounding countryside. The room was as always comfortable and clean, the breakfasts good, and the hosts Graham and Catherine were great.... More

We started our Inn to Inn holiday at the Lacet House. In the center of Ambleside, everything was easy to get to and to find. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Graham met us, showed us the room and made sure we were comfortable. He also took care of delivering our breakfast to us in the morning which was nicely... More

The owners were out for a special occasion when we arrived, so we rang the telephone number above the door. A lovely lady from a B&B a couple of doors away arrived with the keys but was unable to get them to work, so kindly took us to her house for a cup of tea. Some time later her husband... More

We were pretty happy with our two-night stay at Lacet House. Central location in Ambleside, helpful hosts in Catherine and Graham, the premises are airy and nicely decorated (including our room), the room itself (# 2 from memory) was spotless and beds comfy, breakfast very good, off-street parking ... The bathroom was a bit of a tight squeeze, but it... More

Stayed here when meeting up with family. Room was very clean and well appointed and Catherine and Graham were excellent owners. Breakfasts were really good with plenty of choice of cereals and a good hot menu too. Has enough parking to handle one car per room which is ideal. Location is great for walking around Ambleside and finding restaurants for... More

Great location, with nearby restaurants, shops etc. We have chosen a pretty room which is on the ground floor (so glad! Hauling heavy luggage is....). Although we can hear people (who are talking loudly) and some cars passing by in the evenings, it is fine with us as we are quite tired after some sight seeing in the day so... More

We have been to Lacet House several times now and always have a great stay. We stayed in room one which is spacious. It's en suite is small but we did not find this a problem. Having a parking space attached is a real bonus in ambleside. The best points we think are the owners Catherine and Graham who are... More

Lacet House is one of the best bed and breakfasts in Ambleside. Room 3 is a lovely room and looks amazing and the hosts are lovely. The breakfast is great and tastes delicious, and the rooms are clean and are decorated nicely. If staying in Room 3, the family room, there isn't an en-suite bathroom but it is still a... More
