This is my 4th visit and I'm surprised I've not given a nod to this place before. It is a lovely small hotel with a slightly sprawling layout which means the rooms aren't all one atop the other.
We have always stayed in the annex building and are delighted that a hotel anywhere can accommodate a family of 5 in one space. The rooms are clean, tastefully decorated and spacious - even with the extra beds in for our large family. The staff are very friendly and work hard at meal times to ensure everyone has what they need.
The menu is varied enough to suit most tastes but not so large as to sacrifice quality. The selection of beers was good and the atmosphere genial. The restaurant is located in three interlinking spaces so a quiet corner could be found if necessary. The lakeside seating area is delightful and is situated at the north tip of Lake Windermere, at breakfast you can face down the lake and see the sun rising over the fells to one side and evenings watch the sun set over towards Langdale.
As well as having a good Lakeside location adjacent to the ferry jetty, the hotel is a pleasant short walk from the shopping area of Ambleside. There are outdoor shops, art, food, toy and book shops. A petrol station nearby and good access to all areas within the Lake District. Also the most delightful and glamorous small cinema. The hotel has ample parking for residents and a public car park is just across the road for diners.
This hotel is highly recommended - we will most certainly be back.
