I've never written a bad review before but I am so frustrated! The noise here makes it impossible to get a good nights sleep. Whether it's the traffic, the bar downstairs, people's saniflows, noisy footsteps upstairs and an irritating squeak from something every 10 seconds from 6am to 8am. Bed sheets clean and bed comfortable but would recommend ear plugs!

My two boys stayed one night here as part of a month-long tour of the UK. It was easy to find, had a hotel attached to it (or vice versa), and was right in the center of town. The parking was down the street and in a private lot. It was a bit of a walk through town, but we... More

We stayed here for one night after booking the large deluxe room - I'd hate to see the small!! Room is basic but clean and the bed is extremely comfortable. The guest house is in a great location, right in the centre of Ambleside near to the pubs and restaurants. Would recommend for a one night stop over more than... More

Stayed in the family room for 2 nights with 4 girls, aged 22-27. The place is easy to find. Check in was quick and straight forward as was check-out. Room was spacious, very modern, well done out. They also came and cleaned and made our beds/topped up facilities during our stay which we didn't expect so that was nice! Great... More

Found this place on booking.com at 19:00 on day of stay. Location is as the hotel says. Central. Right in the middle of Ambleside. Perfect location. However, the hotel has no staff. You collect your keys and check in at the restaurant next door. This process was very awkward as we turned up at 20:00 and the restaurant is very... More

This was a great find. The location was perfect for us with lily bar downstairs. The room was big and clean, bathroom was small but everything u needed was there. Will definitely use again as we feel great value for money.

It's quite important to distinguish that this is not a hotel and you shouldn't expect amenities as such. If you want a hotel stay then this place is not for you. Checking in was straight forward enough with a waitress in the Tarantella restaurant next door- she was efficient in her explanation of the parking location and check out process... More

The place was beautifully decorated and recently renovated. Although the room was very small, it contained all hotel amenities (towels, hair dryer, kettle, coffee, etc) and a clean private bathroom. There was also a hot beverage vending machine out on the corridor. The property was conveniently located near Ambleside shops and a small tesco. The parking was about 5 min... More

This is room only accomodation,great location,car park about 2 minutes away - literally walk across road,past a few shops and down a set of steps. It is located over the Tarantella restaurant ,which incidentally is a great little Italian,the food is excellent and the... More
