Hillsdale in Ambleside
Ranked #8 of 102 Ambleside B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This was our first visit to the Lake District so a central location was important and Hillsdale was perfect. Ambleside was a fantastic location to be based for three days and our hosts at this B&B were great. They knew the local area very well and were able to suggest eating options and also local tourist options. The room was not huge however it was very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were fantastic. We would recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: The room that we stayed in was not huge however more than big enough for what we required. It ha a v...

We stayed here for a couple of nights just after the Easter bank holiday. We were greated with a really warm welcome from George. This B&B is lovely, rooms are really cozy and very clean with wonderful views. George and Lindsey are great hosts, George advises on any walks guests may be interested in and Lindsey on places to eat. Breakfast was lovely and set us ip for the day. We usually try and get upto Ambleside at least twice a year and will definitely be staying here again!!

We stayed for only one night in April, we stayed in room 8 which was right at the top of the house. The room was very clean and well appointed. Shower worked well and the decor was to a high standard throughout the establishment. Breakfast in the morning was of a good standard and you could request whatever cooked breakfast you prefered. Also a small selection of cereals/fruit/yogurts. There was also fresh tea/coffee made to order and orange juice available. The B&B is conveniently located for all the shops/pubs/restaurants in Ambleside and the proprieter was very helpful giving directions/suggesting things to do. Off road parking is available, although a 5 min walk from the property itself. Elderly guests may struggle with the stairs as there are no rooms on the ground floor. Our stay was reasonably priced for the level of service/accommodation recieved. Overall a very clean/modern B&B right in the heart of Ambleside. Perfect for couples looking for a relaxing break in the lakes. I would definatly reccomend 'Hillsdale' to a friend/family.

From the first moment our hosts made us very welcome. The room, decor and cleanliness were all first rate. A really good breakfast set us up for the day and the excellent location was close to great restaurants and pubs. There are superb walks from Ambleside itself enabling you to take advantage of the free parking provided by the guest house. Definitely a ten out of ten!

We stayed here for two nights in March, the whole place is spotlessly clean. The rooms are done to a very high standard. The breakfasts are lovely and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We will definately be going for a return visit. The off road parking is very good. We would definately recommend this B&B.
