This was our first stay at Ambleside Guest House and Peter and Ruth ensured that our stay was wonderful. From the moment you step through the door you are made to feel like friends of theirs. Peter's knowledge of the area to visit and places to eat was first class. Each day you received a menu choice for breakfast which... More

Ambleside is an immaculate guesthouse. An Edwardian building, sympathetically converted to provide a surprising number of ensuite rooms, preserving the period flavour of the house (pine beds, picture rails, panelled doors) but with a calm and uncluttered atmosphere, with cream and magnolia walls and paintwork. We chose Ambleside as it is an easy 10-minute stroll along quiet back streets to... More

We had the first floor bedroom, next to the breakfast room - very comfortable and quiet - no problems. Owners are helpful, accommodating and totally great. Great breakasts. Location is super for walking into town and to the Theater.

This was my second stay at Ambleside Guest House with Peter and Ruth and lovely once again! After 4 years I rang up to ask for a room. I got the same one as previously, and not only that: immediately, after 4 years, Peter remembered me and greeted me as an old friend. My stay (6 nights) was in the... More

Thank you Peter and Ruth for your hospitality at Ambleside. We arrived on your doorstep without a booking and you manage to somehow find us to twin rooms!! The rooms were beautifully clean and comfortable and the freshly cooked breakfast in the morning set us up for the day. Thank you for your recommendations of places to visit and eat,... More

Pretty much perfect. We had a large room that was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Hosts Peter & Ruth were welcoming and were very helpful with their suggestions for places to visit and to eat. The breakfast was excellent and cooked to perfection and the situation, close to the town centre and with a small car park couldn't have been... More

A really warm welcome from Peter & Ruth. We were given some great advice on places to visit, where to eat and pubs to relax in. Rooms are exceptionally clean and tidy with all the facilities you could need. A lovely breakfast served freshly cooked in the mornings. This guesthouse is in an excellent location just a few minutes walk... More

Ambleside came highly recommended to us for our visit to Stratford to celebrate our son's 18 birthday and it was very clear to see why. Peter and Ruth are wonderful hosts and Ambleside has a very homely feel. It is immaculately clean and perfectly located. It is sufficiently out of town to be peaceful but only a pleasant stroll away... More

A magnificent place with awesome hosts with super clean and comfortable rooms. Frankly speaking, I did not expect to find Ambleside such a welcoming place. it was pretty quiet and quite close to RSC and theater buildings. It was my second trip to SUA and found this place more accommodating than the four-star hotel I had stayed at before. Certainly... More

I thought my mother-in-law kept an immaculate and welcoming home. Peter and Ruth exceed her! I've stayed at Ambleside 3 times in 2 years and each time received the warmest hospitality, which included finding needed medical help, excellent restaurant recommendations and Peter's assistance in finding housing for our 30 study-abroad students. If you are seeking an immaculate inn, chef-prepared full... More
