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

We've came to Lacet House for years now, and it is really pretty. The rooms are clean and the owners are friendly. The breakfasts are filling and delicious and they have options for everyone, whether you are a meat-eater or vegetarian. The sights from the windows are breathtaking, you can see Ambleside but if you look far into the sky,... More

We stayed two nights in Lacet House. We booked based on TripAdvisor reviews and can only agree that it's a fantastic place. Very nice couple, Catherine and Graham, who runs it. The bedroom was excellent, the bed comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. You had everything you needed, apart from one little thing. It's an old house so you don't... More

We recently stayed a couple of nights and felt right at home. The room was comfortable and clean. The off street parking was fantastic (and essential in Ambleside!). The hosts were wonderful. So caring and attentive. We needed to leave quite early one morning and they accommodated us with an early breakfast - so considerate! This accommodation is right in... More

Stayed for 2 nights whilst in the area for the Great North Swim. Room was lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable. Great location - very close to the shops and cafes/restaurants in the town. Catherine and Graham were welcoming hosts and breakfast was delicious.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June on the way home from Scotland and found the location fantastic for exploring. Situated near the town centre we were within easy walk of the shops and restaurants. Our room itself was on the top floor and had a huge comfortable bed with a nice bathroom. The breakfasts were delicious with lots... More

We are Australians visiting relatives in UK. As part of our holiday we visited Ambleside in the beautiful Lake District. My cousin had booked, sight unseen, for 2 nights at Lacet House, a B&B right in the heart of Ambleside. What a wonderful haven it proved to be! We were welcomed by host, Catherine and shown to our well appointed,... More
