A bunch of us descended on this delightful guest house in the picturesque village of Hawkshead to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday party. We were given a warm reception by hosts Ros and Darren and made to feel most welcome. Our friends had liaised with them in advance and our group had exclusive use of the lounge and dining rooms...

I'll sum this up quickly, as I am a man of brevity; clean, comfortable and well run establishment and lovely staff. I would happily stay there again, and may well do just that. Mind, there is a problem. The hot water supply isn't adequate. There wasn't enough hot water for two baths, which is a shame. Maybe a new boiler... More

stayed here for 2 nights whilst walking in the lakes. Lovely wee village with places to eat and quaint little shops. B&B was lovely with a four poster bed in the room. Breakfast was plenty to keep us going whilst we walked. Ros and Darren are welcoming and will help you if you need suggestions. Water pressure in the shower... More

Stayed on 6th August 2014. It made a lovely change to stay in a guest house I could find no fault with. At £80 it was excellent value for money. Room 1 was very clean, had quality linen etc and a lovely slipper bath. The room had sockets and a mirror near to each other, very handy for doing my... More

On the inside of the front door is a small sign saying "arrive as guests, leave as friends", or something like that. This is a good guide to what you can expect from this great small hotel in Hawkshead. Darren and the staff were always helpful and welcoming. We had room 6, immaculately clean, a bed of epic proportions, and... More

Stopped at Ivy Guest House for one night late July 2014 and was very impressed. This guest house is a must when visiting Hawkshead. A lovely quaint building with a semi spiral staircase leading to the rooms. As per previous reviews, the breakfast is fantastic. The full English was the best I have ever had in guest house/hotel accommodation. Wonderfully... More

This place was a great find, owner Darren couldn't be more helpful, and the rest of the staff provided friendly excellent service. Breakfast was also of very high quality, with good selection and everything freshly cooked. Location was perfect for walking and visits to the lakes, in a lovely little village with just 4 pubs. Room cleaned daily and fresh... More
