Stayed a night in the Vallelay Suite and we were most impressed.
Arrived to home-made muffins and complimentary bottles of lager/prosecco and soft drinks chilling in the fridge. Room is exquisite, very quirky mix of decoration, with bold print wallpaper and curtains, wooden floor and a huge bed (which was extremely comfortable). Tea/coffee making facilities, TV. The bathroom is wonderful, his and hers sinks with huge double ended slipper bath and walk in rainshower. Linens and towels white and crisp, with L’occitaine and Neom toiletries/candles/room spray. Breakfast served in your room, pre-ordered the evening before. Very nice indeed. There are three rooms to choose from and each room is individually decorated. If you are looking for something with plenty of character, this is the place for you. You will not be disappointed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Randy Pike is our home on the outskirts of Ambleside in the heart of the English Lake District. Once a Gentleman’s Hunting lodge on the Wray castle Estate we have just recently returned it to its former glory... Randy Pike is Lakeland's sexiest new bed and breakfast, and yet B and B is it truly in its very simplest form, the suites are large and luxurious that have kept the character and feeling of that iconic neo-gothic era and yet marry perfectly with the all the modern facilities you'd expect with Vi-sprung beds, cloaked in the very best frette line and plump crisp pillows, there's a flat screen tv, i-pod dock, tea and fresh coffee. The Showers are the size of a small country, warm, funky and sexy... there's truly nothing out there like them. Andy and Chrissy Hill ... more less
