Great place to stay. Convenient, free parking. Rooms clean and a good size nice little sitting area. Breakfast good range although a buffet staff still on hand ensuring everything running smoothly.

We had a huge twin room with high ceilings and an enormous bathroom and very comfortable beds that were more like doubles than singles. It was on the front but the road was very quiet in the evening and in the morning I only noticed the road sweeper - it might be busier at other times of year. Breakfast was...

What a fabulous little find. I booked directly through the hotel, and got a 10% discount & a free bottle of prosecco in the room. Lovely, clean, warm B & B , very understated. Located in Ambleside, just down the road from all the shops , cafes, restaurants . A lovely full breakfast was on offer, cereal, toast, juice, fruit,...

Comfy beds, cooked breakfast and friendly staff who couldn't do more to help. We only stayed two nights and will be happy to come back and see the rest of the lake District from this lovely little hotel.

We've been coming here for years and have always been impressed. It's a B&B but actually more that that (it's a sister to the larger Regent hotel in the town). Friendly staff are either at reception or on call, and you can have drinks and breakfast in your room. Our bedrooms were bright, smart and contemporary with en-suites to match....

We had a nice one night stay in February at the Lakes Lodge. We were in room 7, which seemed to have been redecorated recently and was nice and clean. Our only down side to the room was the shower/bath lacked water pressure and didn't get particularly hot. Off road parking was fine but seemingly limited, as we checked in...
