We had a lovely stay at Park House in Ambleside. Di & Paul were great, friendly welcome and made us feel at home straight away. We had a double room on the top floor, lovely cosy room, the shower room was small but it's a quirky property & it wasn't an issue. The breakfasts are great and nothing is too... More

Booked double and single for 2 nights but ended up staying for 3 as so pleased with quality and service. Rooms compact but attention to detail is excellent and would challenge the best of hotels. Centrally located to Ambleside and surrounding Lakes. Breakfast limited to between 8-9am but again, the service and choice compensates for this minor limitation.

Just stayed for one night booked at at very short notice in Park View and cannot recommend it highly enough. Immaculately clean, great nights sleep in a comfy bed and a lovely breakfast. Not too many places in Ambleside take weekend bookings for one night only but Diane and Paul were most obliging and great host

Recently spent about a week here with my wife. From the start we were made very welcome. Accommodation very clean and comfortable. Breakfast excellent and cooked to order. House close to centre of Ambleside, its shops and restaurants. and an easy walk to Lake Windermere. An excellent place to tour from, central in Lake District. Don't miss out on the... More

We decided at the last minute to extend our stay in the lakes and booked into the Park House at the very last minute. The room was prepared by time we arrived though (45 minutes!), then the owner did what I assume is his usual help to guide us to our parking place which was secure and convenient and also... More

When the time was up on our rental property in Ambleside, we had to find a hotel or B&B that had two days with vacancies. Almost every place in the town is usually showing a "NO VACANCY" sign in the window.My wife and I lucked out and I really mean it when I knocked on the door of the Park... More

Stayed here with my husband as an anniversary treat. Ambleside is marvelous. This b&b is just average. Our double bedroom was clean but far too small for a couple. Overlooking a busy road it was noisy and stuffy. The mattress on the bed was hard. The pillows didn't seem to have much filling. The bathroom was tiny. My husband, who... More

Room nice, bathroom was shared but clean and big. B&B is close to center. Owner was friendly and helpful with my broken finger and having my arm completely in the plaster. He's also strict but I understand this for a guest house as not all visitors are as polite. There was some noisy neighbours but here the owner has no... More

Park House seems to offer so much on their website. However, the actual experience is underwhelming and extremely disappointing. The initial welcome was confused and muddled. After ringing the bell three times and waiting over five minutes, the owner, Dianne, finally managed to let us in but seemed unsure as to why we were actually there! Her manner was most... More
