"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

"one of the best in Ambleside"
Great value hotel offering great service and a top restaurant. Breakfasts are outstanding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice peaceful break"
Nice hotel, very quiet, which is what we wanted, lovely room well prepared. We had one of the garden rooms which helped the peace and quiet as it was away from the road. Was a little bit of repair work going on but didn't interfere with our stay. Breakfast was good and substantial, served until 12noon which was a good idea for us. It is a good 10 minute […] walk into Ambleside, which even though is along a main road is quite poorly lit at night. We didn't eat at the hotel as we were visiting others who had arranged alternatives. Overall a nice hotel would recommend a stay Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"REGENT HOTEL AMBLESIDE"
Excellent Location in lovely surroundings. Very comfortable room. Friendly and helpful staff. Good food and service. Plenty of parking facilities. Thoroughly enjoyable stay and very likely to stay again. Certain areas did need some redecoration.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed our stay"
The hotel was right on the lake and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Ambleside. The room was comfortable, clean and had nice decor. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and there was quite a range to choose from all included in the price if you are bed and breakfast. Nice romantic getaway!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was charmed being on the edge of lake windermere, and the surrounding views of the mountains made the location lovely, the room was comfortable, clean and well maintained. the breakfast in the mornings was something i relished! and can recommend the kippers, the hotel is obviously situated in the middle of the lakes so is convenient for surrounding […] visits for walks and other activities. and would not hesitate to go back.

"Regent Hotel Ambleside"
A great location for exploring the lakes, whetehre by foot or car. Hotel was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. The great plus is the relaxed breakfast which is served from 08 00 to 12 00. Splendid selection of dishes (I recommend the kippers). So you can lie in or have an early morning walk. Dinner however was a bit more rushed. The […] food was good in quality and price but our main course arrived as we were only just finishing our starter. That aside I recommend the Regent as a splendid place to stay to enjoy the Lake district. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel on a lake? Don't mind if i do!!"
I have to say this was one of the best hotels i've ever stayed in, and really think it should be classed higher then a 3 star! We had the sail loft room, with its own private decking area overlooking lake windermere. It was absolutely beautiful and i just wish i had been able to stay for longer. The room was stunning, and the service even better. We'd […] go to the bar to order some drinks and they would deliver them direct to us on the decking area of our room - i've never had service like this before. The girls who worked reception and the restaurant were the friendliest i've ever met and really couldn't do more for you. I just cant wait to get back to the Lake District to stay there again!!

"Veldig bra hotel"
Vi hadde det kjempefint. Nydelig hotel bare et steinkast fra innsjøen. Veldig stille og godt plassert rom. Utmerket service og veldig bra frokost. Kunne ikke ha blitt bedre for oss.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed in the Regent for 2 nights recently and would highly recommend it. Staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was great (and late!) as was supper in the bar. We stayed in a Superior Garden Room which was in fact a chalet and good value for such a well appointed room. Toiletries were great too. Although it is on the main road to Ambleside the hotel was very quiet and away from the busyness of Ambleside village. It was a great base to walk and drive from and there are other bars and restaurants nearby which are worth visiting. We would go back anytime and have already recommended it to friends.
"Fantastic service, great food"
07/28/14 Phil F Liverpool, United Kingdom
2 Night stay 22 July. Fantastic service from all the team, especially the new waiter George who has natural people and service skills. Good choice of restaurant and bar food, great value for location and cooked perfectly. Comfortable room. Relaxing public areas. Will make a return visit.
"RUBY WEDDING SPECIAL"
07/27/14 Nick K Fleet, England, United Kingdom
Having stayed here previously we booked five rooms for our family to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary. As expected the reception and service throughout was friendly and efficient, food was very good. We stayed on for the rest of the week after the others had left and the staff made sure that a rather large rose, which we had been given, was carefully looked after during our stay. The place has a lovely setting by the Lake. The restaurant looks out onto a delightful courtyard, which was a mass of flowers. The previous visits were special treats after finished the Dales Way so we have fond memories of the place. We were certainly not disappointed this time and will be back sometime.
07/27/14 Lynsey W Harrogate, United Kingdom
What a refreshing change, a hotel where the staff were local and genuinely friendly and attentive from the moment we rang on the off chance they may have a room as we drove past one Friday evening after our planned trip went wrong. We had a courtyard double room which was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. A comfortable lounge and bar again with excellent service by the staff. The hotel is literally over the road from the end of lake Windermere with beautiful views of the fells. The hotel has a very open feel about it with courtyard rooms and lodges out the back and plenty of parking. The breakfast was fantastic with a huge choice from the full works to pancakes or kippers. Again all served by friendly local staff! Breakfast is served until 12 o'clock miday. We have being staying in the lakes for the past 20years from camping, yurts, cabins, cottages and hotels and we have driven past this hotel many times. However after this "chance stay" we will definitely be staying again. Could not fault it for the price we paid of £119 B&B. Well done the Regent.
"Nothing better !!!!!"
07/26/14 Rachel W Leicester, United Kingdom
We stayed at the Regent for a three night getaway. Fabulous hotel, great staff, fantastic service. We ate from the bar menu every evening, preferring a more casual dining experience and it was beyond our expectations. The food was delicious and beautifully presented- too nice to really call it a bar meal ! We stayed in a garden room and would recommend it as we were able to take advantage of the veranda and warm summer evenings. The lake was across the road and was the perfect location for a stroll by the water. Thank you to everyone who made our stay so fantastic
"Good value hotel"
07/25/14 sersc Liverpool, United Kingdom
We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Regent. Ideal location, easy to find and ample free parking. We ate in the restaurant our first night and the food was lovely, plenty of choice for breakfast also. We stayed in a courtyard room, which is a quiet location. The service provided here was second to none, staff very friendly, helpful. We will definitely return here and recommend to others. The only change I could recommend to the hotel is to invest in some summer quilts, as those used are far to thick for this lovely British weather we are currently experiencing. Other than that everything was perfect.
"Location, location, location!!!"
07/23/14 Chris H Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
A very good first impression, the hotel is situated on the lakeside just south of Ambleside and very easy to find it provides ample parking and the main entrance is very inviting. Our room was on the second floor on the back of the building and although well fitted was a little on the small side. We were lucky with the weather and had the windows flung open both day and night unfortunately this meant cooking smells in our room at breakfast and dinner times. The breakfast menu was very impressive and we also had dinner in the restaurant one night the food was excellent and I would recommend eating there, although service in the evening was a little slow. In addition we took advantage of the offer of packed lunches which were good quality and value for money. The bar area is comfortable but again service was a little slow with staff stretched across a number of competing duties. Would we stay again? Yes : - )

Brilliant location, friendly staff and lovely food, 'The Regent' has the lot. Already planning to return. P.S take on the amazing 'The Fell Walker English breakfast' if you're brave or starving. It's fantastic.
"Would I stay here again!!!!!!!!!"
07/20/14 johnboy247 Cleethorpes
Yes I certainly would. Weather aside as we have no control over it, the first impressions on arriving at the hotel were excellent. The young woman on reception (I think she was called Lucy) was very welcoming and made us feel as though we were welcomed guests. The reception area was very clean and tidy with information about the surrounding area, including leaflets describing circular walks of varying lengths from the hotel. Stephen showed us to our room and again he was very good at making us feel very welcome. We stayed in one of the "Garden rooms" which is a small annex at the rear of the hotel accommodating about four rooms. The room was excellent and had everything in it that you would expect from a hotel of this calibre and an added bonus for us was the fact it was very quiet. Breakfast was included and boy what a breakfast it was. It's the first time I've known breakfast be served until 12.30 noon with the choices that are available, superb, and it definitely sets you up for the day. We did sample the evening meals both the restaurant and bar menus and found the meals were very good and the staff were all very friendly and just couldn't do enough for us. This was a first time at this hotel for us although other people we met who were staying there had been to the hotel many times and that in itself has to be a good recommendation. Well done to everyone concerned, keep up the good work.
"Wonderful stay once again !"
07/19/14 sueOxfordshire oxfordshire
We have been visiting this wonderful hotel for many years and always have a wonderful stay. This is a hotel that is always evolving, improving,upgrading and maintaining it's excellent standards. We have just stayed for 5 nights in a garden room which was very comfortable and kept very clean by the housekeeping team. All of the staff we met were very friendly,efficient and professional at all times The food is excellent with an exceptional choice on the breakfast menu and a very good choice on the dinner menu and a separate bar food menu too. I requested a vegetarian meal for dinner and the chef really went out of his way to make me a variety of superb and delicious dishes each night. Thank you so much for this as very often vegetarians are often given little choice and made to feel awkward,certainly not he case here, much appreciated ! My husband who is not a veggie, had a great meal every evening too. Thank you once again for a lovely stay and we will certainly return again to this lovely hotel, hopefully soon !!
