Hotel central but although the rooms are large our room wasn't cosy. It was also very cold even with the heater. Shower either really cold or really hot. Glad to have only stayed for one night. Wouldn't stay here again. Room noisy but clean enough. Staff helpful but online the photos made it look much nicer than what it was....

Pros: good size rooms and comfy beds. Clean and modern and wifi which works. Warm and cozy. Big spacious bathroom, very conveniently located to many good eating and shopping places. Cons: The hotel is situated above restaurants ( you have to check in at the restaurant below) and whilst this was the low season when we visited, we could here...

I stayed in room 3 which was clean and in good order. The hotel is in a great area with parking an issue but there's car parking within a short walk. My main gripe is that it was noisy. Not sure what was below my room, I suspect it was the back of the kitchen of the restaurant next door,...

Ambleside Central was comfortable, clean and perfectly located. It's not a B&B, but there are plenty of places in the area to wander to and fill up on breakfast before you head off for a day of mini-adventuring in the Lakes District. The only issue with the accommodation is that it is steep stair-access only, which was difficult for my...

I've never written a bad review before but I am so frustrated! The noise here makes it impossible to get a good nights sleep. Whether it's the traffic, the bar downstairs, people's saniflows, noisy footsteps upstairs and an irritating squeak from something every 10 seconds from 6am to 8am. Bed sheets clean and bed comfortable but would recommend ear plugs!
