“Lovely hotel, staff and rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Stayed in the Arabian room. Enjoyed the stars! Lovely hot water for the spa bath and a very comfortable bed.
Wonderful views from the windows from the room, and a great central location.
The breakfast was fantastic and a great choice was available. I was able to choose a variance on the full English.
The staff were really friendly and attentive. Really enjoyable stay.

Booked 2 nights in the African themed room as a break from work. The room was lovely and spotlessly clean, the bed was so comfortable and the spa bath great. The gentleman who owned the b&b did everything he could to make the stay stress free. Breakfast was lovely all cooked fresh and you could have whatever you wanted. Great rates. Great location.
Would definitely stay again and would definitely recommend to friends.

Room Tip: take comfortable walking shoes.

Short stay en route to Scotland, great location, clean and welcoming b&b, great value for money. Breakfast was lovely and plenty of it. Stayed in the Africa room, spa bath was really relaxing after full days walking. Would visit again.

just returned from a 5 night stay at wanslea guest house, it is very clean, friendly, and in a great location just out of town but easy walking into Ambleside for an evening pint/meal,
as well as being a great base to explore the local scenery (the first three days of my stay i did not use my car once and i completed several long walks directly from the house).
The breakfast was fantastic, exactly the choice and quantity needed for an energetic few days,
I will be returning here ASAP, thoroughly enjoyed myself on my photographic expedition!!.

There is one small point about the car parking which is limited on site, don't let this put you off as there are several other places to park very close by.

A second visit to a fabulous place.
Loved every moment of it.
Excellent room of a high hotel standard. Absolutely spotless and well presented.
Breakfast was delicious and fast with great service.
Hope to come back soon.

Room Tip: The higher in the building you are the better the view of the Langdales.

We booked for two nights stay in a standard room. The room was clean and welcoming, the heating was on which made it very cosy after a long walk. We liked the large mugs in our room for the tea and coffee. TV is small but it was a standard room. The breakfast was excellent well presented and hot ( the bacon was the best I have ever had). It is ideally situated and an easy level walk into Ambleside. Great value for money would go again!
