Cuckoo Brow Inn, Ambleside
Great staff, location, rooms and food
All staff were friendly and helpful, especially as we had a problem with our car which reception helped us to locate a local mechanic. Food was delicious.Room was clean and very comfortable, was hoping car wouldn’t be fixed so we could stay a few days more!

HOTEL It was good, lovely oldy worldy hotel. Different, and pleasing. GETTING ABOUT Only thing was it was a difficult drive on very narrow lanes, which we did not enjoy. The Ferry very close by was not operating, so made it more difficult to get about the lanes in the car. But it was a great hotel.

Not as good as our last stay
We stayed here last year and loved it but we're slightly less impressed this time. The hotel is still the same but cleanliness particularly in the bathroom could be improved. We were mainly disappointed by the service this time. Most staff were very friendly but we had a bad experience during breakfast where we didn't get served until we eventually asked. The manager at the time was also berating the staff in front of the customers which meant a tense atmosphere and unhappy looking staff. The hotel also didn't seem as dog friendly as it had been. Last time all the staff fussed over the dog but this time they gave us tables tucked in the corner as we had a dog which didn't make us feel as welcome. Still a good hotel but the management needs looking at.
