My room was clean and comfortable, although I was a bit surprised by the Asian decor. Unfortunately the window could hardly be opened at all (perhaps due to building regulations or the age of the house) so I found it difficult to air the room and it tended to smell a bit stuffy. Breakfast was good, and Dave was really... More

Spent 2 nights here for our son's wedding. It was excellent, a lovely room looking out onto the street, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was great, served quickly and piping hot. The hosts were very friendly. Definitely recommend this place and hope to return.

Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night whilst attending a company dinner in Ambleside. We were greeted very warmly by our host, and our room was very comfortable and clean. There were wine glasses and a corkscrew on the landing for anyone who had brought their own tipple, and the following morning we had an ample full english... More

We (family of 4) are extremely happy with our stay at Claremont House and would definitely go back if we were to travel to the Lake District again. The house is located at a very convenient location (2 minute walk from the Ambleside bus stop) and there are some lovely walks/ parks/ eateries near it. The room was spotlessly clean... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the guesthouse. Really easy to find right on the Main Street in Ambleside. You will be spoilt for choice on places to eat out of an evening, and I was impressed with the vegetarian choices at the restaurants. The guesthouse was lovely, very clean and tidy, you can tell the place is well looked after... More

Claremont was comfortable, in the middle of town & really convenient if you had go out for dinner. We could walk back.& stroll around.

Recently stayed for two nights whilst walking in the lake district. The room and en suite were spacious, decorated to high standard and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was fantastic (excellent sausages and bacon) and set us up for a full days walking. Dave and Angie are fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough for you.
