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

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
