We received such a warm welcome by Paul who was full of good advice regarding walks, restaurants, sight seeing and local interests. The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts amazing. Great value and walking distance to everything from walks along the glen to shops and restaurants to parks and Lake Windermere. Just lovely!

We had a lovely stay at Park House - rooms were small but modern and very clean. Breakfast selection very good and well cooked. Perfect location for all Ambleside restaurants, shops etc. Our room had a great view over the park and of the hills. Was good to have allocated parking which was a short walk away. All in all...

This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel and I'm sure it will not be the last. From the friendly welcome to the lovely clean and comfortable room everything is geared to an enjoyable stay. Fabulous breakfasts and free parking (although this is situated a short walk form the hotel it is not a problem). I can... More

Stayed here for the second time within a year and again the room was clean, comfy and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The attention to detail is exceptional and the service from the owners makes your stay the most enjoyable, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast needs a particular special mention as you won't get... More

I was in a single room which was small but had everything that I needed. I shared a bathroom with the occupier of the other single room but we didn't encounter each other and the facilities are great. The view from my room at the front of the house was over the park and onto the hills in the distance.... More

We stayed here for two nights for the first time. The guest house is run by a very lovely and friendly couple Mr and Mrs Brooks,who have made a lot effort into ensuring the house and rooms are immaculate. The parking is a short walk away but this is absolutely fine as the guest house is situated on the one-way... More

General: This guest house is conveniently located in the town centre with good views over the recreation ground to Loughrigg Fell. Buses from Keswick and Windermere stop nearby. The building is attractively faced in local slate. Décor is nice without being twee and it's spotlessly clean. Everything is very well planned and organised and I didn't want for anything. Helpful...

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was our first visit to Ambleside, with so many places to stay I did a lot of research, but I wasn't disappointed!

We have just stayed here for 2 nights and the host, Paul, was very friendly and helpful. The double room was very clean and comfortable..excellent towels, bedding, TV and DVD player. The breakfasts were very well cooked with as much tea, coffee and toast as one desired. Recommended!
