This hotel enjoys an excellent location opposite Waterhead Bay. It has a good sized car park. Our superior room was excellent, and we enjoyed a good nights sleep during our three day stay. All staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. We had breakfast in the restaurant and really enjoyed The Lakelander breakfast that was cooked to... More

Just returned from visiting the North and finished it off with a stop over at Regents hotel Ambleside. Wonderfully positioned virtually on the banks of Windermere. Food was excellent and staff were very efficient and polite. Room was clean and had a nice view over the courtyard. Breakfast served from 9am -12. Restaurant open until 8pm with a very extensive...

Great place to stay for the weekend treat; excellent location, delicious food & great service from start to finish. Stayed in a superior room in the court yard at the back - highly recommended. Lovely & quiet location near the lake whilst only 10 mins walk from the centre of Ambleside.

We have visited the Regent many times and are never disappointed. We now travel with our dog Buzzz and never feel that having him with us is a problem to any of the staff.

The best part of this hotel is the cooking in the restaurant. Good steaks, and excellent lamb duo. Wine list is reasonably priced, and wines of decent quality (except we didn't like the Chilean sauvignon blanc). As is common in the North of England and Scotland, ask for your steak more rare than you want. e.g. if you want it... More
