I've tried others, but this is the one I keep coming back to. Clean, efficient, friendly staff, fantastic location. I like to go somewhere that understands what a walker/cyclist needs - loads of hot water, good water pressure, good shower and bath, comfortable room with tray for muddy boots, endless carbs for breakfast, free biscuits and tea in the room,...

Booked this for a family wedding and what a great choice! Location is so convenient being in the centre of Ambleside but still quite and peaceful. Free parking was very convenient. Rooms were excellent - clean, spacious, comfy and the jacuzzi bath was a real bonus. The breakfast buffet was excellent with loads of choice and really refreshing fresh fruit.... More
