Fair 4.0
Not a 4 Star ....
Stayed here last week and didn’t enjoy it at all. It’s advertised as 4star, but it’s a 3 at best. Booking confirmation email told us the keys are to be collected next door which is a restaurant, but this was closed and a note on the door informed us to go to the bar next to that (obviously all have the same owner), to which we found 2 other couples checking in, and the barmen not being able to find the check in book or keys :( Eventually checked in to find our room was on the 3rd floor with no lift. There was no iron in our superior large room (which it clearly wasn’t) although it should have been, and there was damp up the wall behind our bed. There is no restaurant in the hotel as advertised,only one next door; but this is not open for breakfast, so you’ll need to find a cafe. There was free parking, but this is at the local football field, a 8min walk away; and in the middle of nowhere down a lane....not a place to leave any valuables on show.

Clean but can be noisy and hot
Lovely clean guest house, in central Ambleside - perfect for all activities. Only down sides were very very small room, the window that opened onto rear of bar / restaurant below so was very noisy and also too hot (as couldnt open window due to noise) and the provided fan was fairly useless.

On arrival there was no parking other than what the hotel offered at a local football club down a few dark lanes. I booked a large double superior room but whatnot we got in my opinion was a small double and didn't have a fireplace etc in the room like the pictures. There was no iron or ironing board in the room either and also no wifi password overall the room was clean and tidy but I wouldn't book again there is plenty others in the local area for the same price of better quality. If your looking for a centralised hotel for a couple of nights then this is ok
