“Good location, Good food but horrible hostess”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Had a bad start to our stay at lyndale with hostess making a lot of fuss about us arriving late though she was Pre-informed. Then she made a whole scene in the night over our toddlers though the hotel website clearly allowed them free with the booking. Rooms were comfortable and the place is located close enough to the main lake area. Hostess made further scenes on any of our requests, overall she had a fairly bad attitude. She clearly is unsuitable for the hospitality profession. Wouldn't recommend this place.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

A very nice place. The room was immaculate and the service was with a smile. We would definitely stay again! The breakfast was also good and the location is great. It's a 2-3 minute stroll to the lake and similar to the shops in Ambleside.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the top rooms with a nice view

This guest house is a real credit to Alison, the hard work and care she has put into it has made Lyndale a really lovely place to stay. We have just come back from a 2 night stay feeling absolutely relaxed and rejuvinated. The beds and pillows are wonderfully comfortable, our room was at the front but was still really quiet. The room temperature was perfect despite it snowing outside. Alisons fabulous full english breakfast would set even the hungriest person up for a full days walking. This isn't a modern minimalist hotel where the heart has been riped out, the decor is really lovely, Lyndale has a very homely feel and is only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside. We will definitely go back again.

My partner, young son and I recently spent 2 nights at Lyn Dale and it was wonderful. The breakfast was absolutely amazing. We did have a slight problem which was our own fault (baby sick) but Alison was very helpful and sorted it very quickly.

This place has everything you expect from the best Lakeland guest house experience. We stayed in an enormous bed in a lovely, spacious room. It had all the facilities we needed and was brilliant value for money. It is a very short walk from the centre of Ambleside and free parking is available close by. Would definitely stay again. :-)

Writing this review for my husband who as just returned from a short break he says the guest house is very close to the centre of amble side so you can walk in at night time for something to eat, he had a single room and says it was very clean and the bathroom was separate down the corridor but it was clean and you had your own key to it , breakfast was very good set you up for a days walking ,dog friendly ,Alison was very friendly and helpful

If you want a good place to stay for your Lake Distict activities then choose the Lyndale Guest House. Our host, Alison was welcoming, always cheerful, and helpful in many aspects. Both rooms that we stayed in were pleasant and the very good breakfasts set us up for our walking. activities. The Guest House is well situated for numerous local activities and, as parking is well organised, the walk into town was very convenient.
