Would come again
Excellent hosts, clean room and lovely bathroom (we stayed in the Arabian room so had a spa bath). Comfy bed and good choice of breakfasts for a B&B.

Warm clean and comfortable hotel
Very enjoyable short break. Plenty to see and do in surrounding area without having to travel very far. The scenery and peac e and tranquillity is amazing-- even a short stay was rejuvenating.Plenty of welcome and helpful advice.Excellent breakfast.

Nice, pleasant stay
4 night stay in themed 'premier' Arabian room on top floor. Owner seemed friendly and pleasant. Checked in easily. Parking is a bit sparse, however, we got a space every night! There is free parking close by anyway. Conveniently located for the north of lake Windermere or Ambleside town - about 5 - 10 minutes walk to either. Lots of places to eat close by. Our room was OK. Although initially it looked really nice, on closer inspection we didn't think it was anything really extra special - the drape over the bed hides the undecorated sloping ceiling! Bathroom was quite small although done to a very nice standard. Disappointed with the spa bath though - very small and the jets were not very powerful and not. Shower was nice though. Nice soft toilet roll, which was a pleasant surprise - normally you get cheap stuff! Plenty of hot water. Lovely fresh clean luxury towels provided each day. Bed was a bit hard for me, but still slept well. Breakfast was nice. Lots on offer - cereals, fresh fruit salad, orange juice, tea, coffee, toast, cooked breakfast. Service seemed a bit too efficient to us – only served between 8:15 – 9:00 and as soon you had finished something they came round and cleared the dishes/plates etc. Nothing wrong with it, just seemed a little rushed to us. We thought the décor/furniture could be modernised. Nothing really wrong - it was pleasant and clean and tidy, but we just didn't feel like it was 4 star - but it was good value, especially at this time of year.
