“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Cherry Garth is very handy to walk into Ambleside and Waterhead. The free parking was also a bonus. I do have to say though that the house does need updated and freshened up. The room we stayed in felt tired (excuse the pun) - the bedding was old and pictures/mirror etc were past their best. The bathroom door was pretty dirty, the jacuzzi bath didnt work and the grouting around the bath should have been re-done long ago. This would not take much to bring it up to its supposed 4* rating. These things didnt ruin our holiday but at the moment it would be difficult to recommend it. Such a pity as it really is a great location and has such potential. Sorry for what seems a very negative report but you should be offering the very best you can.

Room Tip: Paying extra for a superior double isn't worth it.

We stayed just the one night, and had a great time. We felt very welcomed, and the room was brilliant, we paid for a superior double and got the deluxe it was a lovely room with a big window and great views to boot.

The hosts were very friendly at check in/out and breakfast. Some others have commented on the quality of the breakfast, but i thought it was very good, not huge portions but enough and very nice, especially the sausage, and i am fussy.

It is about a five minute walk into Ambleside and the parking outside the B&B is great.

Many thanks

cherry garth is in a great location, perfectly positioned for touring lake district.....but seriously needs some updating. We stayed in Room 6. THE ATTIC. It was a "climb" up to it. Crazy amount of stairs. Not suitable for anybody with a bad heart, bad legs, etc. Clean room. Comfortable enough. Had to stand to look out of skylight. Asked to change room but unable to be facilitated. The bathroom was very very basic. Toilet roll holder fell off wall and the toilet seat would take a bite out of you. Horrible shower mat was handed to us which we had to ask for. Shower was dreadful. Hot or cold? And a carpet on the bathroom floor in this day and age?? Very Very basic. It felt a bit 50's B&B but food though was lovely.

Great location, room OK size, nice and clean. Shower not great, could do with updating. Breakfast was OK but not great they need to think about the bacon/sausage/black pudding they use.
But if you don't care about this sort of thing it was fine.
I would stay again which is always the most important thing.

Had a fab time here. Ambleside is beautiful and well worth a visit. Cherry garth was very good value for money (especially with the buyagift vouchers).
The room was clean and tidy and quite pleasant (we were in the top attic room with skylight). The bathroom was pretty basic (shower was a hand attachment which you had to hold) but did not effect our stay.
Breakfast was very good and the sisters (and father) could not do enough to help. Highly recommend a stay here!

Run by two sisters, nothing is too much trouble, the breakfasts were wonderful with plenty of choice, the rooms, although a little dated aRe clean and comfortable. I was on the ground floor overlooking the front lawn, the view across the mountains was spectacular. Situated just outside Ambleside town centre, very close to Hayes Garden Centre (which is a must visit!) and there is also parking at the front. Recommended, I'm going back in the Autumn

Cherry Garth is ideally situated not only for Ambleside but for touring the Lakes.
We stayed in Room 8 which is on the top floor and found this to be pleasant and clean. All the furniture in the room matched unlike many hotels, however the tiling under the bathroom window could do with refurbishing.
There are plenty of games to amuse children and magazines and books for adults.
The breakfast selection was very good and far better than in some bigger hotels that we have stayed in.
We would certainly stay here again.
