"Great location"
Great location across the road from the lake. No wifi in courtyard room was inconvenient. Good breakfast options. Spa bath was nice but needs curtain or wall to prevent water spillage. Staff good. Parking fine.

"Friendly staff, lovely stay."
We stayed here for two nights in rooms in the main hotel building. They were comfy, cosy and had easy access to the lake and town centre. The staff were very friendly and breakfast was delicious. We would recommend staying here if you are in Ambleside as its a good base for exploring the lakes.

"Super Upgrade"
We had booked a Superior Double Room and on arrival were told we had been upgraded to another room. [ not sure why ] we would have been more than happy with the room we had chosen. The upgrade was amazing with an amazing bedroom, fantastic shower and so much space it was our very own luxury appartment. We even had a lake view fro the lounge window. Every thing about the hotel was fantastic, the breakfast and service throughout. this was our second stay and its always a relaxing and enjoyable break. 5 Star !!

"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!

家族経営感のあるあったかいホテルです。 ホテルというより高級B&Bのような。 朝食はとっても良かったです。 バス停も桟橋も近く路線バスで湖水地方を回るのに良いロケーションです。 バスタブ付きのお部屋をお願いしていたら バスタブなしの豪華スイートになっていて 変更をお願いしたら同じ金額でバスタブありの半分位の眺望なしの部屋。納得行きませんでした。時間もかかりましたし。

Return visit to this excellent hotel, superior service, and superb restaurant. Steak night is always very good value, and range of menu for breakfast is surprisingly wide. Individual rooms- for a real treat try room 34 The Loft with stunning views over Windermere.

"Great relaxing weekend"
02/01/16 Millers43 Retford, United Kingdom
Just got back from a fantastic weekend in the Lakes, The Regent Hotel, Ambleside. We booked it direct as we had seen how nice the hotel looked before on a previous trip to the lakes, was also a bonus to find out it was dog friendly so Clarkson came with us. The hotel is perfectly located, the rooms are to a high standard, we did think that due to taking a dog we may get a shabby room, that was not the case, Food was really good and even Clarkson got some treats by the staff at Breakfast, yes our dog was allowed to eat with us in the bar area, it not very often I write reviews only when its really bad or really good, The Regent Hotel, Excellent *****.

This is our 5th visit to the Regent. It has become a bit of a tradition to come here in January. Something to look forward to. As usual we weren't disappointed. The service is excellent, food is delicious and plenty of choice, nice wine list and fab bar. We were given the room we requested. The lady on reception even printed out the bus timetable when we decided not to chance taking the car. See you all again next year if not sooner.

01/26/16 John V Bolton, United Kingdom
Found this hotel through Tripadvisor, The visit was an opportunity for my son to go climbing in the "Langdales", near by and with excellent challenges for climbers of all abilities. My partner and I enjoyed a "shopping day" in Ambleside. Other other attractions are easily accessible and we had a wonderful walk along the river bank at Elterwater on the second day after an overnight fall of snow. The hotel staff were most welcoming and helpful, we ate in the restaurant on both nights of our stay, the food was good, well presented and well priced. Breakfast and the breakfast staff were among the best I have experienced. I will certainly go back at some future date

"Better than ever........................"
01/21/16 robphillips Washington, United Kingdom
We have stayed in the Regent on a number of occasions but for one reason and another we hadn't been back for a few years - on returning we were very pleased with our 2 night stay. The location is very good across the road from Windermere and the pier to catch steamers around the lake - limited availability in January. It is a slow 10 minute walk from Ambleside itself and is also an excellent base to explore this part of the lakes. We walked from the hotel to Grasmere via Rydal caves an enjoyable 5 mile walk made all the more memorable with snow on the ground. The frontage/reception area is very well done, light and airy. There are small reception areas around the bar which are nice to unwind in. Breakfast was good and the evening meal very agreeable. Bar service is good and plenty of choice. All the staff were polite and friendly, particularly the lady supervising breakfasts. We stayed in a superior garden room, no.44 which is very spacious and well designed. It has its own balcony from where you can (just about) see the lake. When we go back this is the room we will ask for.

What a great hotel. Booked one nights stay with my partner. Fantastic location by the lake, over the road from the lakeland cruises and the pub. Short walk into Ambleside and lovely walks from the door. Staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Always happy to see you and always had a big smile on their faces. Lovely and clean warm room. Would definitly return
