Have been severely times but this time was disappointed with stay. The shower was blocked with hair and we were told that it has not been cleaned all season but would only take few moments to clean!! also it was so hot in breakfast room. when ordering breakfast we didn't always get what we ordered.

Clean and comfortable rooms, delicous breakfast, owners/staff very friendly and acommodating. Great location, near hiking. Convienient to many destinations in the Lake District. Much prefer Ambleside rather than Windemere. Quiet rooms. Could use a bit of updating decor. WiFi not available in all rooms. Best WiFi in comon areas and lounge.

Stayed here over BH weekend.Staff were very helpful on arrival and our room was comfortable, although the four poster was a little rickety - we also had some issues with our shower which were quickly sorted out. Breakfasts were very wholesome and you certainly wouldn't go hungry. Accommodation is very well located for Ambleside centre and car park is a... More

This great little B&B is easy to find and it is about a 4 minute walk in to the village of Ambleside.The breakfast was fab and our room view was 10 out of 10. If I come back to Ambleside again, we would be staying at the Dixon's B&B again. Well done and we'll see you soon.

The Dixons were most hospitable and attentive and they made wonderful breakfast and sandwiches. The room and bathroom were very clean and nice too. The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood, beautiful setting with a nice view to the common green and local church.

We stayed here in late June and although it is in a good location - literally a 5-minute walk to the centre of Ambleside and has car parking facilities, we felt the accommodation was average and overpriced. Our room was small but clean with nicely co-ordiated soft furnishings. However, the four-poster bed was rickety and uncomfortable and in dire need... More

Lovely room with great views. Very good full English breakfast, kept us full all day. Plenty of choice for a lighter breakfasts if full English too much. Lovely big pot of tea for breakfast. Cheerful, welcoming host, willing to offer advice about the local amenities when asked.
