Have stayed here many times and have always found it okay. We went on a very busy weekend two weeks ago for two nights. Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the town, entertaining seeing all the coming's and going's. We were slightly disappointed not to be upgraded but understood that the hotel was fully booked during our stay and we had gone on a special deal with Best Western. What I love about this hotel is the fact it is so central, car parking free, we just arrive, park the car and then organise our days round the many walks available from Ambleside. The breakfasts were as usual, very good, plenty of choice, porridge with whisky was a new one, brilliant, although I did not give it a go. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We ate in a local restaurant one evening and in the hotel the second evening, (enjoyed the hotel meal more).
Will definitely be returning, we tend to alternate with the Red Lion in nearby Grasmere so always a bit of a quandary about which to choose.
