Amboseli Lodge
Ranked #1 of 103 Ambleside B&B and Inns

Reviewed April 14, 2013

We have just spent a very special 3 nights at the amazing Amboseli Lodge. Gwen and Reg made our first stay in the Lakes perfect in every way. From the moment that we arrived, Reg welcomed us into his home, popped the kettle on and helped us with our copious amounts of luggage! We were only staying for 3 nights (just not long enough!) but Gwen and Reg helped us make the most of our trip giving great advice on walks to do and sights to see in and around the area.

Gwen and Reg were so kind, welcoming and very thoughtful, even leaving a card in our spotlessly clean room for my Birthday along with some chocolates which came in very handy when we were half way up a mountain!!!

The views from our room “WANSFELL” were breath-taking and it was a great sense of achievement knowing that we had climbed to the top of WANSFELL, a large fell named after our gorgeous room. A nice soak in the bath after a long day walking was just bliss, not to mention a shower in the mornings to wake you up, with an endless supply of hot water.

There was a great choice at breakfast no matter what your preference and nothing was too much trouble. Gwen’s singing and cheery nature in the mornings was just what was needed to start our day, a real home from home.

Although we had never been to the Lakes before we wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else other than Amboseli Lodge in the future. Perfect location, perfect rooms, perfect breakfast, perfect hosts; we can’t recommend this B and B enough. You’ll love it!

This is a fantastic B&B in the heart of Ambleside. On arrival we were provided with tea which was more than welcomed after a long journey. Rooms are perfect for what you need. Cleaned and tidied every day, very well kept and to high standards. Our room was at the front of the house overlooking the park. Despite it being on the main road we heard no road noise at all and both slept very comfortably. Breakfast was excellent with a huge selection, from cereals, cooked breakfast and pancakes. Gwen and Reg were both delightful, Gwen very much a motherly figure, nothing was too much of an ask. The B&B itself is a 2 minute walk into town with plenty of shops, places to eat etc.
Overall we had a fantastic stay at Amboseli Lodge and will definately stay again.

An amazing find; we had a great stay here and were well looked after by Gwen and Reg. Great choices for breakfast, lovely room and cosy bed. Plenty of helpful advice and suggestions for our walks and places to eat. We did not want to leave and will definitely be back.

It's been a couple of years since our last holiday in Ambleside at the Amboseli Lodge but Gwen & Reg greeted us warmly as old friends. The accommodation throughout was spotlessly clean and the food excellent as usual, with the tasty new addition of pancakes with strawberries, creme fraiche and maple syrup on the breakfast menu! Gwen can always be relied upon for her cheery patter at breakfast time and Reg has a vast wealth of knowledge on local walks. They are such lovely people, they even remembered my birthday from previous years, giving me a birthday card and chocolates, which was really kind and thoughtful! Hope it won't be too long before we return again for another stay at Amboseli Lodge.

Room Tip: We always opt for the Wansfell Room at the rear of the guest house which is very peaceful and relaxi...

As regular visitors to Ambleside we've stayed in a number of b&bs but this is definitely best so far. Gwen and Reg are lovely hosts, their attention to detail is second to none, lovely rooms which are impeccably clean and great breakfast. Excellent location in Ambleside too. Thank you for a great stay, we'll be back if you've space! Paul and Lorraine

We have just returned from another very pleasureable stay at Amboseli Lodge with the ever lovely Gwen and Reg. What a fantastic place to stay, you are immediately made to feel at home as Gwen & Reg well and truly welcome you into their home. The kettle is always on, the bedrooms are very clean, spacious and modern, and the breakfasts (as well as Gwen's singing!) are a joy to behold. We have stayed here many times and will not consider staying anywhere else in the Lake District, never mind Ambleside.
