“No hesitations in recommending - we'll be back!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2011

For comfort and value for money, with plenty of car parking and only a short walk to the town Rothay House is excellent for short or long stays. Darren and Debbie are super hosts with nothing being too much trouble. The rooms are of a very high standard and have recently been redecorated throughout. They are very clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are full of variety and the traditional cooked breakfast is excellent. Have stayed with Darren and Debbie since 2009 and have already recommended to friends and family. Thanks to you both for always making our holidays with you very enjoyable. Superb!!

Excellent B & B. Modern new on suite facilities. Very clean and well decorated. Ample off street parking. Short easy walk into town or to the quay. Very good variety at breakfast (not just the usual). Darren and Debbie very friendly and helpful. Will be recommending it to friends and family and will definitely stay there again should we return to the area. Thanks for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: The room (6) was perfect for our 2 night stay.

The family run house was equipped to a high standard.
Our en suite double room was a little cramped for a stay of more than a day or two, but very comfortable.
Breakfasts were first class and the service from Darren and Debbie excellent and friendly.
A flight of steps to the entrance and stairs to both floors would make it unsuitable for disabled people.

Room Tip: We had room 6 which was good. No views

Been to the lakes every year for last 10 years for walking holidays. Have stayed in many B&Bs but this is the only one I come back to now. Darren & Debbie are very welcoming & breakfast is brill. Rooms always clean and tidy. Darren has excellent knowledge of the lakes and gives good advice for your days out on the fells.

Rothay House is an excellent bed and breakfast. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have all the facilities you need. There is a great variety on the breakfast menu to choose from and the food is cooked to a very high standard. Darren and Debbie provide a warm welcome when you arrive and nothing is too much trouble for them during your stay. The bed and breakfast has a car park which is invaluable when staying within Ambleside as most other bed and breakfasts have street parking only.This is definitely a bed and breakfast to return to over and over again. Thank you Darren and Debbie for a wonderful holiday.
