This is a good Bed & Breakfast that is attractively priced, very clean with a welcoming host. Our hosts were likely at one time an army family judging by the way the were organized in everything. Small touches and conveniences were provided without the need to ask. Bathroom was sparkling clean. Nice bedroom. No complaints. We enjoyed our generous breakfast... More

What a lovely find after coming to the Lakes for 30 years-very friendly owners who made you feel at home from the beginning to end of our stay. Very clean with good attention to detail and such a lovely breakfast with the food all being sourced from local suppliers. Great value for money although we only had an en-suite standard... More

My husband booked here for my birthday for a few days in the Lakes. The B&B is right on the A591 so road noise can be heard however we were on the top floor with a small window so not much of a problem for us. The room was clean and tidy if a little cramped and the en-suite was... More

Our first impression of the guest house was that it was very smart and well presented. The décor throughout was very tasteful and the whole place was clean and comfortable. We had a room on the top floor which felt a little claustrophobic as the house eaves took up a large portion of the ceiling. We had booked a twin... More

The breakfast is awesome, and the service is very friendly. parking is a bit limited, but they offer various alternatives to on... More

We stopped here for 2 nights for our wedding anniversary. It's close enough to the centre whilst being quiet at night. We had the Moroccan themed room which was very comfy. The spa bath was superb after a long climb in Great Langdale. One improvement would be some better pillows. The breakfast was very good especially when you could choose... More

Just got back from another stay in Wanslea Guest House, Ambleside. We have stayed here several times now. This weekend we were in the Rock and Roll room which is very spacious and comfortable. We have stayed in all of the themed rooms in the past and they are always spotlessly clean, comfortable and provide all you need for your... More
