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

We stayed in the king size, en suite room on the top floor. It was very very clean and well presented. The shower was good and it was lovely and warm. The breakfast was very nice. I think they are very well organised, friendly, helpful and yet unobtrusive. They were very helpful, allowing us to park all day. I would... More

We stayed for two nights in September. We had a corner room which was very spacious and clean - it was a family room so no ensuite but we had a private (lockable) bathroom and toilet a few feet away. At one point I asked the lady who is one of the co-owners how long they had been there and... More

We return to Lacet House every year due to the lovely friendly welcome, fantastic hospitality and it being a terrific b&b. This year was no different and having booked for next year I anticipate it'll be just as good next year. Welcome: Catherine and Graham always give the warmest of welcomes. Rooms are always ready and there is always the... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here a week ago for 4 nights. It was absolutely lovely, the double room we stayed in was made up to perfection everyday- you could tell that the owners take great pride in their B&B. The hosts were lovely and welcoming and the breakfast was so beautiful every morning. The only thing that made me... More
