"Fantastic room and service"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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..Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff were brilliant - nothing too much bother and a smile at all times. Restaurant excellent and the food wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Situated in great area"
An excellent hotel with friendly staff and great foodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at the Regent for two nights and had a fantastic time. The location is great, right on the lake. We booked a superior room which came with an amazing view. The hotel was very clean and modern, breakfast was delicious and the staff were very helpful and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely anniversary stay"
We stayed for two nights here and it was lovely The staff were friendly and the food was great for both breakfast and dinner The only thing that let them down in my opinion was leaving soiled tablecloths on the table for the next guests Clean ones please!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Superb staff, great location & food.cannot fault it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A nice place to stay!"
Friendly efficient staff who were helpful and flexible.Genuine Expedia guest review
A lovely hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. The food was excellent and it was great not having to rush down for breakfast (they serve until 12). The walls seemed a little thin and we could hear the next door occcupant on his mobile (though he did seem a little irate!) . I think we would upgrade the room next time we stayed but overall we thoroughly […] enjoyed our time in the hotel and would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very polite and friendly staff. Breakfast quite good, and overall a positive hotel experience. I would recommend the Regent to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, but room noisy"
We found the hotel very clean, the staff were very friendly and the inclusive breakfasts very nice. The breakfasts were served between 8am and 12pm which give a good flexibility if like us, we liked a lay in. The only negative and it's quite a big one is the room we were in (Room 16) was very noisy, it faced the busy main road and the hotel car park. […] We had the windows open due to the temperature and all we heard from about 6am was beer deliveries to the hotel and heavy traffic on the main road. We would still recommend this hotel, but certainly not room 16. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to boats"
Staff were very friendly and most helpful, nothing was to much trouble. Service at breakfast was first class and meals served hot and well cooked. Although you are not overlooking the lake as the hotel is hidden behind an inn it is only a few yards walk to the lakeside. I would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting a quiet comfortable base to tour the […] lakes. We will go again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 night stay at the Regent with the dog"
We stayed at the Regent for 2 nights with our dog as a base whilst trying out a few of the walks along Angletarn Pikes. The hotel was a great choice and I would recommend it as a place to stay in Ambleside, although slightly out of the town centre its only a 2 min drive up the road. We did debate whether to stay in the town or by the lake but decided […] to go for the lake option which we would do again. The hotel was clean, tidy, comfortable, modern and in a good location with parking. The staff were very friendly and there always seemed to be plenty of them about, especially at breakfast. We couldn't fault breakfast, there was lots of choices and the cooked breakfast was delicious, the staff came round constantly asking if you want more coffee or more toast. As for taking the dog with us the Regent was very dog friendly, even put a bone in the dog bowl for our arrival, there is a pet shop directly across the road for any items you may have forgotten which is very handy. Overall we would recommend the Regent to anyone looking for a good base in the lakes, especially those looking for a great dog friendly hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice and the reception staff pleasant and helpful. We upgraded to a garden room and that was very nice although I would be curious to see a standard room to see what was particularly special about the garden room. Our only problem was the staff at breakfast. Both mornings we didn't get what we asked for (off the menu) and had to wait while […] they went back to get it, obviously that's not a massive concern it was just a bit annoying and we felt it was such a simple thing to get wrong. Other than that, no problems, lovely location, nice hotel. We both said we'd like to go back to the Lake District but would try somewhere else just because there's so much choice.

The staff are a real asset to this hotel. They are totally helpful and pleasant. The facilities are brilliant. My wife and I went for a restful break and this is just what we gotGenuine Expedia guest review
Location excellent - a few yards from the lake and boat departure point.All of the staff we encountered were well trained and pleasant. The choice of breakfast was the best we have come across in any hotel. No parking problems which is a big plus. Requests for a room with a walk-in shower were noted at reservation and dealt with fully. A hotel that […] we are pleased to recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal for a mid-week break"
Nothing too much trouble for the staff. Food very good. An enjoyable mid-week break....except for the weather!Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed over the bank holiday weekend with another couple and really enjoyed the hotel. The service was excellent and the decor is modern but comfortable and the breakfasts were really good. So much choice and the scrambled eggs were really good. The hotel location is perfect for catching the boat over the lake to Bowness and further afield. We also […] went to Wray Castle which is just a short drive away. We had a really lovely stay so thank you very much. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A Nice Break"
Really Good Hotel right on the lake. Nice decor, great staff and a 10 minute walk into Ambleside Centre. Breakfast was superb with the added bonus that you can have it until 12:00; so when the weather is bad, you can have a much needed sleep in first!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very pleasant stay; good location don't wish to add any moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A happy two nights"
12/14/14 Janet H Alnwick, United Kingdom
My husband treated me to two nights here for our first anniversary. We had a two room suite with vast double bed - two singles pushed together. New bathroom with smart slate floor and coloured stone pebbles in the shower but we could not unhook the huge umbrella-like shower head! Lovely attentive staff and a large range of cooked dishes for breakfast along with a superb buffet table. The evening meal was good but not much atmosphere. We would certainly go again.
"Still Great Staff Greater"

"Only one word to describe this place FANDABIDOZI"
11/25/14 Peter S Gateshead, United Kingdom
It's been over 12 months since we have stayed at the Regent on the Lake hasn't been for the want of trying to get back they have just been full at the times we have wanted to go so have ended up in three other places two of which were very good the other abysmal Regent on the Lake is special in as much you are made welcome from moment you walk in the door to Reception then the hotel staff take over really knowing how to look after you and make one feel very wanted Food Drink and accommodation is of the highest standard also with the Hotel being so centrally located it is an ideal base for for touring or visiting nearby Bowness Ambleside Grassmere or Keswick not forgetting of course the boat trips All in all why try the rest this is the best can't wait to go back hope it's sooner rather later
11/18/14 Gina-Cameron Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Great hotel to stay in. Just across the road from Lake Windermere. Stunning views. The rooms were lovely. Would recommend eating in the hotel. Good value and lovely surroundings. 10 minute walk into Ambleside.
11/18/14 Val T
Love this hotel..our 4th stay with you we've been visiting Ambleside for some years now and frequently passed when walking down to the Lake. We decided to book up following refurbishment, weve stayed in one of your garden and courtyard rooms which were great, and twice in main hotel. This time we had room no. 2 which was absolutely gorgeous. Breakfast is also great with so much choice available. Not to forget the very lovely and professional staff. Thank you

just spent a weekend at the Regent in Ambleside, a first time experience although we have eaten there in the summer. We booked two rooms, dinner, bed, and breakfast for a special Christmas lights weekend, having been there in the summer I knew what the place looked like from the outside and the a bar area but nothing else, to say that we were very pleasantly surprised by the internal decoration is an understatement it was like walking into a superior style five star hotel ( it is only three star don't ask me why) the rooms were very comfortable, warm, and pleasant the food was second to none and I mean that. A fantastic breakfast to start the day the choice was brilliant and if you required something that wasn't on the menu they were prepared to try to satisfy your requirements dinner was also in the same vein there are meals of the same quality available in the bar all in all a fantastic venue and experience but< I save the best until last the STAFF every single one of them were absolutely superb I have been in lots of five star hotels around the world but the staff at the Regent not only compare but even exceed some of the finest that I have had the privilege to be served by, in my humble opinion five stars for the staff is insufficient!!!!!

Stayed at the Regent at half term for a relaxing break, upon arrival checked into room which was attractive, spacious and very clean in a pretty setting. We decided to have dinner in the hotel's restaurant and we were very disappointed; small portions on barely warm plates, microwaved vegetables and overly expensive for the quality and what it was. Breakfast was dreadful; no fresh juice, no croissants, cold limp toast served first - left by other guests? The bacon was inedible, dry and hard. Staff were generally lovely and very helpful however no comment on returned plates of food which showed clear dissatisfaction. Totally unacceptable for one night's BB at £160. A shame, we won't be returning to this hotel and we are regular visitors to Ambleside and the Lake District.
"A definite recommend"
11/13/14 Carol B Poulton Le Fylde, United Kingdom
Recently spent 2 nights at this hotel and can definitely recommend. Firstly, the location is excellent with the ferry to Bowness just across the road and the town just 10 minutes walk away. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We just enquired if they had rooms suitable for a disabled person (for possible future visit with a disabled member of the family) and straight away they showed us a room that would meet our requirements. The accommodation is of a very high standard and spotlessly clean. The food, both breakfast (very extensive menu) and evening meals are excellent. I can certainly see why this hotel receives the excellent reviews that it does.
