we stayed for one night in room 10 really quiet apart from the people next door coming in at 2 knocking on the wrong doors not the hotels fault, the room nice and clean and comes with nice TV and hair dryer, shower was hot and the bed was comfy, the breakfast was a let down we had the English, we asked for the bacon well done and the sausage, the bacon looked as if it had been scared by the frying pan it was that white and the sausage was not much better, the porched eggs were still gluckie if that's a word.
The bar at night was full when we walked to Ambleside centre but empty when we got back so that was nice, if you want food at night time Dodds looks nice but was very very busy too busy for us to wait so we went to stampers see my review don't go, in all I would stay again here but would go for toast and porridge for brekkie I know they cannot please everyone but it wasn't busy so a little longer in the frying pan would not have hurt, but still maybe I should have said something, oh well you will love the hotel

Stayed there on numerous occasions, the room, staff and the dog friendliness is second to none.
Food is superd the chef and staff go out of their way to look after your every culinary needs.EXCELLANT.
Bathay, one of the annexe rooms is our favourite, very large with patio doors onto a little garden and brow of the lake.

Stayed here for 2nights in the Skelghyll balcony room which had a lake view, we enjoyed every minute. This lovely Inn is dog friendly too. Our dog was given just as good a service as we were, the staff had a ready supply of dog treats,she was welcome in the downstairs area during meals, including breakfast if a table was booked the night before and surprisingly was allowed in Skelghyll suite which was furnished to a very high standard.

The pure lakes skin care range in the bathroom was also a nice touch for me, I even bought the shower gel from reception to bring home. We had a meal in the bar on our first night which was delicous and presented to a very high stanard, the second night we booked a table across the road at The Waterside Boutique Hotel and Bistro, the food was good but the place lacked atmosphere and the friendliness of The Wateredge, so after the meal we rushed back to the bar for a night cap.

We will definitely be returning next year!!

Room Tip: Although Wateredge has a good web site, ring the hotel direct and speak to the receptionist, she'...

Lovely location on the shores of the lake but beside a busy road so can be noisy. Next to a park so very handy for dog walking. The staff were great...very helpful and friendly. Our dog was made welcome and he was even allowed to come to breakfast and dinner with us in a reserved area of the restaurant. Food was good but limited choice and the specials were the same all week so ended up choosing same things for dinner. We had a ground floor room in an annexe with its own enclosed patio ares complete with swing seat which was great for enjoying an evening drink and gave the dog some freedom. Would have rated this higher if the food hadn't let it down but the lovely staff were a definite asset!

the wateredge inn never disappoints, every year we come to the lakes we always have a meal here on the last day of our holiday, this year we we more impressed than ever, service was prompt staff were friendly and the kids loved their meals, sausage and chips but cumbrian sausage and not a scrap was left. the meals arrived within 15 minutes, and to top it all the most beautiful warm sunny night, perfect views, after a rather wet week, life doesnt get better than this, a place to go back to year after year.

I stayed in the Wateredge Inn for the past couple of times we've been in Cumbria. I have to say it beats Flookburgh haven by a long shot. The staff are absolutely lovely and I felt very wlecome there. You got a great choice of food at breakfast and their toast was absolutely delicous. the village is practically on your doorstep so you can get to restaurants easily. Also Fisher's landing (the room we stayed in) was immaculately cleaned and had an amazing view of the lake.

5 stars, (and I have defintely got to come back again someday)

Room Tip: Definately choose Fisher's landing since it has an amazing view of the lake and it is more spaci...

stepped off the ferry from bowness called into the wateredge for a nice refreshing drink, lovely surroundings & room for the kids to play, very nice place with a great view, its a very busy place & long queues i think they would benefit from a separate area to order food as if you just want a drink its a long wait & people give up waiting
