The Ferndale Lodge is excellent value for money and the staff are very friendly. The b and b has free WiFi but we found the signal very poor. Our bed room was spotless but we found the bed some what firm for our liking. Breakfast is very good and good selection. The location is excellent just a few minutes walk... More

Great location, right next to Climbing centre and really close to everything you need, Clean and tidy. Brilliant food in the morning. Car park for residents at the back. Its not cheap but probably now average from Ambleside in September (even out of school holidays). It would be a 4 with a lick of paint, but thats probably personal taste.... More

Me, my partner and our Patterdale Terrier stayed here second weekend in July. We stayed 3 nights in a pet friendly room which is situated at the back of the property in a separate building. The room was very neat and very clean which is all I ask for in a room really. The hotel is in a great location... More

Visited with my son for a walking holiday- we wanted something decent but not too expensive. Ferndale ticks all the boxes! Parked up in their car park (big plus) and greeted by friendly staff. Straight to our nice clean room. Not overly modern decor but bed was comfortable after a long days walking. No bath but really nice shower in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a double room. Room was spacious with an en-suite shower and the comfortable bed led to a good nights sleep. Off road parking at the rear of the hotel is rare and welcome in Ambeside. Breakfast is ordered the night before and cooked to order, plentiful and very tasty. Cereal, toast, fruit, yoghurt and...

Our host was away so we were ably looked after by his mother. She was welcoming and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable with a generous hospitality tray. The breakfast room was well set out with a wonderful array of fresh fruit to go with our cereal and yoghurt. Mary produced exactly what we wanted for a cooked breakfast... More

Stayed three nights on a break to do some sampling of real ale in and around Ambleside, oh and a full day walk to Fairfield summit. Ferndale ideally placed, comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms with good breakfast, great hosts. Few minutes from pubs and restaurants, bus terminus close by (buses ideal to explore the area). Will visit again.

We stayed for a couple of nights in a twin room which was located in an annex to the rear of the main house. Very comfortable room with everything you need. 1 minute walk into the center of Ambleside and handy free, off street parking which is rare in Ambleside. Rob was very welcoming and provided an excellent breakfast.
