"Very welcoming & dog friendly"
A wonderful one night break on way to Scotland. Staff very welcoming efficient and friendly. We had asked for a dog friendly room and it was spotless. We were allowed to bring our whippet into the hotel for bar snack and lunch. The Breakfast menu was excellent - the best variety of breakfasts I have seen.All in all highly recommended, good value, well placed for the Lake. It will be our first choice next time we visit the Lake District.

"Excellent hotel and location."
This is the second time that I have stayed at the Regent Hotel this year, on both occasions I have been extremely impressed by the facilities and the professionalism of the staff. The hotel is in a great location to explore the Lake District and it's many walks and attractions. The hotel offers a very good breakfast which sets you up for the day with a wide choice of fresh fruit,cereals and traditional English breakfast. The staff cannot do enough for you and are immaculately dressed. The rooms are lovely and decorated to a high standard, with very comfortable beds. If you are looking for a quality hotel in a fantastic location then I would highly recommend the Regent Hotel Ambleside.

"Nice hotel, pleasant staff and good location!"
Had a bad experience with a self catering (Heart of the Lakes) and we ended up getting a refund and book with The Regent. Brilliant decision. Hotel was very good. Staff excellent and the late breakfast is really convenient as you don't have to rush in the morning! Food was good too save for the lack of fresh pastries. Room was nice and comfortable and the shower was great! Only downside was the room was not soundproofed and we had some noisy neighbours. If that issue is sorted, then this hotel is definitely worth a 5!

We had a superior room in the small lodge at the foot of the car park, it was absolutely excellent. Underfloor heating in the bathroom, massive comfy bed and very peaceful and quiet. The staff at check in and at breakfast and extremely attentive, would definitely recommend, we'll definitely be going back.

"Night owls beware!!"
It's 11.30pm on a freezing, wet night. We're not long in and after getting dried I'm sitting reading when the heating goes off. I phone the night porter who can't help beyond telling me there are extra blankets! My wife and I went to bed to keep warm, as reading wrapped in a blanket isn't my idea of fun. The room, and especiallly the bathroom, was like a tomb. The bar closes at 11pm. The whole hotel seems to go into lockdown at 11.30pm, so night owls, like me, beware. The 'legendary' breakfasts are just normal with a few decent touches, and the sausages taste mainly of cereal. On the morning we were leaving, we were running a bit late, but since checkout wasn't until 11am we thought we'd be OK. Then the receptionist rang to see when we were going to check out - it was 11.01am. At least she apologised about the heating.

"Good hotel in very pleasant surroundings."
A good hotel in very nice surroundings. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The room we had was clean and more than adequate albeit very warm even with window open. My only suggestion would be that the bathrooms should include a proper over bath shower rather than just a hand attachment for use when having a bath..

"Very comfy and clean"
Smooth, efficient and most welcoming check-in. All staff on reception very friendly. Breakfasts superb. Room very comfortable;a couple of down points with bedside lights too low to read a book due to low wattage, type of shade and low position. Only one towel rail in bathroom placed directly in line of shower and nowhere else to hang towels so we were permanently shuffling them out of the way as each was using the bathroom. Apart from these couple of points, everything was absolutely spot on.

"A fantastic hotel"
08/30/15 Ruthruggles Hertford, United Kingdom
We have just returned from a five day stay at the Regent Hotel, and what an amazing and welcoming stay it was. The food was outstanding, the room lovely and cosy, and the staff friendly and welcoming. A big thank you to our lovely Australian waitress, Jessica, who looked after us so well during our stay. She was a diamond.

"Not as dog friendly as advertised "
08/30/15 Stubeedan
We decided on a long weekend away in the Lake District, we did some research on dog friendly hotels as we have a nine year old boxer and the regent hotel suited all of our needs or we thought. Great location with access to numerous easy walks with breath taking scenery The room was clean and the staff are very friendly The breakfast is fantastic with a wide variety of things to chose from just what you need before a day of walking, however we had to eat all our other meals outside the hotel as dogs are forbidden in the restaurant and in the bar between six and nine pm very disappointing, dogs are also not allowed to be left in the room !!! So not as dog friendly as we thought Although I would recommend this hotel for the location on the lakeside and a short walk to the town centre, but DEFIANTLY not if you have canine friends Stuart Hunt Leicester

"A trip with friends"
08/29/15 chris s London, United Kingdom
We booked a 5 night break in the Lake District with our best friends and our first impressions with The Regent Hotel, was one of surprize, as to why the hotel only qualifies as 3*. On our arrival, the desk staff were very helpful and dealt with our booking efficiently. The hotel offers quality that well exceeds their current rating. Breakfast and evening meals were excellent, with a good selection of food on their menu. (Breakfast is a must) Restaurant staff were extremely friendly and always offered an efficient service, but not over the top. The rooms were clean and well presented. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit the Lakes as its location sits perfectly with its overall quality....Beautiful views overlooking lake Windermere........A most enjoyable visit.

I came as a lone traveller. My room was pristine and had everything I could have wished for. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Compared to others I've stayed at in the lakes, this place stands out and felt very welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent, especially the breakfast...a must visit for the lakes

From the minute we walked in the hotel it was absolutely lovely. Reception staff were very helpful, bar staff and waiters were superb especially Julie the breakfast supervisor she was so cheerful and nothing was a bother. We booked the Sail Loft Suite and it was beautiful, absolutely immaculate and just as described. Perfect location looking over the water, lots of bars and restaurants nearby and a 10 minute walk into Ambleside which was lovely. A perfect stay and will definitely be going back.

"Nothing special"
08/21/15 Fraser D Galashiels, United Kingdom
It's in a good location next to the waterfront, plenty of parking. Don't eat or drink in the hotel... Seriously over priced. The room was fine, nothing special, little things are annoying like the door to the bathroom not closing properly and the tv having no signal at all. Internet is too slow to stream anything. Wouldn't pay full price to stay here again.
