Lake House, Ambleside
Lake District is gorgeous.
Beautiful location, beautiful hotel. Friendly staff. Parking a bit difficult but understandable.

Fabulous stay, loved it all. First room they gave us was very small (for 4 nights) but they put it to right immediately. Food fab, location fab, can't say enough good stuff. Oh, staff first rate.

Very Good8.0
Pleasant Stay But Super Hot!
Lovely quaint hotel with a great view of Lake Windermere and only a short walk to the town of Ambleside. Only complaints are that staff only there until 9pm and it was absolutely baking hot in our room - like a sauna. We asked for an extra fan but it didn't really help and this is when it was only 15C outside. Can't imagine what it would be like in the summer. Bathroom ok, TV had few channels that actually worked, but room spacious, breakfast large and location quiet.

Lovely Lake District stay.
Beautiful hotel. Our room was incredibly nice. It was on the terrace, so you didn't go into the main house, just walked right up to your room. Rooms have plenty of space. Wifi worked great, but there are different zones on the property so i joined several. Driveway is single lane up the hill, but plenty of spaces in multiply lots. Great central location for exploring the Lake District.

Brilliant two nights stay
Fantastic location with stunning view. The room could have benefited from some slight updating but bery clean and comfortable- which is more important to us. Good night’s sleep, delicious breakfast, hot shower. Would definitely stay again.
