Ambleside Guest House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2011

I first stayed with Ruth and Peter in 2006! Which was my first visit to Stratford-Upon-Avon. Since then I have stayed with
them every year. Ambleside Guest House is a clean, friendly b&b, the cooked breakfast is delicious and it's only a short walk away from the theatre, shops and other attractions. I can't thank them enough for making me feel very welcome each and every time I have stayed! I look forward to my next visit!!

Ambleside guest house is in a great location, very clean and with good breakfasts. We stayed 2 nights and took 2 rooms for our family of five. The landlord is extremely friendly and offers plenty of practicle advice. Beds comfortable. Parking around back. Weird, only one of our two rooms had a tea tray. I would rate this at the high end of a traditional b&b. Does what it does very well, does not aspire to be more. Stay here and you will be pleased.

The Ambleside Guest House is faultless. It is spotlessly clean, (sparklingly clean, actually). The breakfast is perfect, freshly cooked, full English. Tell me of another place where you can stipulate how well done you prefer your eggs? Our hosts, Peter and Ruth, were very knowlegeable about the area and their calm, quiet, yet helpful manner was not at all intrusive. The location of Ambleside cannot be bettered. It is about 8 minutes walk to the theatre and the river, less to the shops and a comfortable walk to Ann Hathaway's cottage. So, having arrived, you can park your car in the car park behind the guest house, and not move it until you leave! How convenient is that! You can be sure that we will recommend this gem of a B&B to all who plan to visit Stratford. Thank you, Peter and Ruth

The Ambleside Guest House is excellent, as are your hosts, Peter and Ruth. You feel that you are visiting friends who happen to live in Stratford-Upon-Avon. Peter and Ruth are generous with their knowledge about how to make the best of your stay in Stratford-Upon-Avon. Our accommodations were spotless, up-to-date, and very comfortable.

Beyond this, the location is "spot-on": two and a half blocks from the Royal Shakespeare Company (of which a half block is The Firs Garden) and only a few blocks to the town center and its restaurants (for dinner; don't miss the Ambleside's breakfast). Ambleside's location is within walking distance of just about everything; that is ideal, since the Ambleside has off-street parking.

Thank you, Peter and Ruth, for your hospitality!

Ambleside Guest House is the perfect bed and breakfast. We are from Nottingham and our first visit to Stratford was made perfect by this lovely B & B and its very welcoming, knowledgable hosts.

Peter and Ruth were brilliant, Peter greeted us with an insight into what wonderful things we could do around the town and what places he recommended visiting. Every detail he gave us was spot on. Stratford upon Avon itself is a beautiful picturesque town.

Peter told us of some good places to eat and we tried The Old Thatch Tavern one night as he provided us with a voucher for 10% off and then Bella Italia as he can kindly printed off (his personal computer) a 2 for 1 voucher for us to use. This to us was such a kind gesture to us both.

Morning comes and Ruth provides an exquisite full english breakfast which kept us going till lunch.
Everything about this bed and breakfast was perfect, the hosts were most helpful, the rooms were spotless and the beds very comfortable, the view from the hotel dining room where u have breakfast is lovely looking onto the park.

If we visit stratford upon avon again, there is only one bed and breakfast we shall be stopping in!!

First trip toLondon, Cotswold Way, Bath and Stratford-upon-Avon was absolutely wonderful! Our stay in Stratford at Ambleside was a perfect way start our trip. The flower garden at the front door was awash with color and so welcoming! Peter was a perfectly charming host, answered our questions and provided information about the area. Our double room with bath was nicely decorated, twin beds were comfortable and the night-time was quiet! Peter suggested several restaurants for dinner and even gave us a 10% off coupon for the one we chose. Ruth served a wonderful, filling breakfast and we enjoyed a few stories from Peter before we checked out. We really appreciated Ambleside's willingness to book us for one night on a weekend.

Ambleside is about a 12 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes to the theater. This was our first experience staying at a B & B and we thoroughly enjoyed Peter and Ruth's hospitality!

A fantastic little B&B with everything you could want! Peter and Ruth had a huge amount of knowledge of the local area and couldn't be more welcoming. They also had good tips about how to get tickets to sold out shows at the RSC. I really can't recommend this enough, especially the fantastic location! I will be back!
