We recently stayed at Riverside Hotel in Ambleside for three nights and we cannot fault anything during our stay. David and Brenda were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they were happy to provide information on the area and recommended the best local restaurants. We would recommend eating at Dodds but be prepared for a short wait for a table as they do not take bookings, but well worth the wait. The hotel is in a quiet location of Ambleside and torches were provided for the dark autumn evenings. On return to the hotel at night David and Brenda had thoughtfully lit candles on the steps up to the hotel. The hotel was spotlessly clean with well-furnished and comfortable rooms with ample teas, coffees, hot chocolate, bottled water and biscuits provided. Also provided in the bathroom were locally made shampoo, conditioner and shower gels. The home cooked breakfast was fantastic using locally sourced products served each day by David. Top marks for Brenda’s home-made bread (different kind each day), home-made potato cakes and smoothies. We will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and will definitely return again early in 2014.
