Reviewed December 13, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights in December during snowy, cold weather. Our room was lovely, large but cosy and warm and overlooking the lake. There is a large car park. Service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast each day was substantial with plenty of choice and the hot part of the meal, tea/coffee and toast were brought to the table. I recommend the porridge with whiskey cream! Delicious.
We also enjoyed evening meals in the restaurant and there was a good choice on the menu.
The Inn is in a good location for trips on the lake or visits to Keswick or Windermere. The bus stops almost outside for both towns and Ambleside is an easy walk away.
Although we didn't use it, there was an included pass to a local health centre.
We would definitely stay here again if visiting the Lake District and can thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view. Ours (30) was very nice.

We have just spent 3 nights at the Wateredge Inn. We visit here in November every year. The rooms are comfy and include tea and coffee making facilities. The staff are very welcoming and are always happy to look after you and ensure your needs are met during your stay. There is plenty of choice at breakfast which includes a lovely cooked breakfast. The hotel is situated at the end of lake Windermere and breakfast is taken in the restaurant which has excellent views down the lake. The position of the hotel is also excellent for access to Amble side which is an easy 15 minute walk meaning that there is no need to move the car from the free onsite parking, which is great during busy times. The hotel has its own onsite restaurant which is part of the general bar open to the public, however I do think the food is a little pricey.
I would recommend the Wateredge Inn for a stay in Ambleside. We have been visiting for about 10 years and will definitely be returning again next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building which is the oldest part and has most character, also they seem...

The hotel is beautiful with a great view of the lake. The room was spotlist and very comfartable. The Breakfast was lovely but dinner was good for the adults but just okay for children. Its great for an over night stay would definatly reccomend it for a good holiday at good decent prices.

This was our third stay at the hotel. It never fails to impress. It's a lovely hotel in a beautiful location. Looking forward to stay number four!! I would highly recommend to anyone. There were young couples, families, couples with dogs, and everyone's needs were catered for.

Room Tip: Room 27 has a lovely view and is a pretty room

Our half term treat was great, me, the good lady and the dog had an excellent stay. The staff are great, the food was good and a great selection of decent ales to keep me happy. This is the first hotel we have stayed at where a dog friendly eating area is designated for all meal times. We had a good lake view room, easy walking distance to Ambleside, near to the ferry landing. We went on the Cruise and Walk for nine pounds each, a value for money cruise and enough to wear the dog out!
Recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the lakes, with or without mans best friend.
