Here on business and then some pleasure. What a lovely reception as always! The hot tub is spot on to relax after a hard days work. Staff are very accommodating as ever and are making my stay really pleasant! Thank you.

We have been visiting Ambleside for over 15 years and have always stayed at The Old Vicarage. Nothing is ever a problem for the staff. They are always very helpful. Breakfast is great and you can have virtually anything you want. The bonus is that it's dog friendly and you can even eat in the conservatory with your dogs if... More

Expensive weekend stay. Room dated . The whole house in need of The Hotel Inspector. Someone had a strange obsession for owls. Ornaments everywhere. The house was amazing, in a wonderful location. Peaceful and tranquil. But owners need to spend some money and redecorate if charging high prices for rooms that appear not to have been redecorated for some time.... More

We had a great stay here. Breakfast is varied and good portions. Very friendly staff and it has a great location. The room was a good size and a nice touch was having a small fridge in the room. Would recommend this place if your visiting Ambleside.

Fantastic location right in the middle of Ambleside. Lovely Victorian house with beautiful well furnished rooms. Excellent swimming pool and jacuzzi to relax in. The staff couldn't be more helpful I was so impressed with the friendliness and care from them to both my son who visited and my husband who had hurt his leg. Excellent breakfast and beautiful surroundings... More

I was looking for a dog friendly b&b in the Lake District had a nice sized room on first floor over looking woodland garden. There was a nice selection of fresh cooked sausage and bacon etc. Also kippers, all served with toast tea or coffee. There was a swimming pool that I did not use but looked clean. Out side... More

We visited with Roisin new dog and old Ralph (Lakeland) who had visited before both dogs give you the paws up and the sausage at breakfast was well received. The adults enjoyed it as well in 3 days we only used the car once due to the central location. A very enjoyable stay. One point I do think you need... More

It was so good we stayed an extra night, they were very busy and couldn't let us stay in the same room but offered another one which was even nicer, we didn't even have to move our luggage ourselves they did it for us whilst we enjoyed our day out. Our dog was super chilled out... More

I booked this B&B as part of a birthday surprise for my boyfriend. What an amazing place to stay! It's very antique downstairs and the 4 poster bedroom we stayed in was modern with fabulous facilities! Matthew who works in the day was an absolute pleasure and took great interest in us and our stay...fabulous staff all round. Breakfast was... More
