Reviewed May 21, 2011

Excellent location for walks and restaurants. Bedroom and bathroom spotlessly clean. The breakfast was superb and served in a lovely dining room. Nice big soft bath sheets and dressing gown provided. Lots of nice little extras to make your stay special. The owners are very friendly and make you welcome the minute you walk in.

Room Tip: only 3 rooms. we had the green room.

Just returned from a weekend (1st - 3rd April 2011) staying at Red Bank B&B in Ambleside, Lake District. We chose it using Trip Advisor and we were pleased with the choice. George and Val were great hosts, lovely room which was very clean and well furnished. Comfy bed and nice and quiet. Excellent breakfast cooked by Val, who makes a points of coming into the breakfast room when everyone has had breakfast to have a chat and make sure were all having a good time. Only three rooms at the B&B so you are well looked after. Val has a great knowledge of the local area and is always willing to pass on ideas about where to visit. The B&B is very central to Ambleside and is only a few minute walk to the village centre. Off street parking available. All together an excellent stay. We will return and would recommend it to others. Hope you get a chance to enjoy Red Bank and Ambleside.

We were welcomed with freshly brewed tea and biscuits. Val is a delight.
Room was spotlessly clean and a good size. En-suite was lovely.
Great location - shops and restaurants a few minutes walk away.
Breakfast was served by the very efficient George. Great breakfast that set us up for our drive home to Scotland.
Ambleside is a lovely place and a good base for the Lakes. Shame about the rain!

Fantastic little guest house, with comfortable, spotless and spacious rooms. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order with plenty of choice.
The hosts were really welcoming and knowledgable. The location was also superb situated only a few minutes walk from all of the shops and restaurants
All in all a wonderful little find, we'll definately be returning, wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone!
