This hotel sits right in the heart of ambleside. It has resturants pubs and shops on it's doorstep. The room was clean and spacious. We never heard the noise of the busy pub below from our room. Although the noise from the pub was not heard the road noise was loud. Especially at 6am when the noise from the delivery...

We had a wonderful stay at White Lion Hotel in a family room. Good location in picturesque Ambleside. Great breakfast & dinner in the restaurant. Julie was so nice and very helpful. Would like to stay again and happy to recommend it to fellow travellers.

Loved the homely feel of the whole place. Cheery, welcoming room with plenty of space. Staff were friendly and the food was fantastic both in value and taste. Thank you for a brilliant start to our UK holiday.

We stayed for one night in one, booking relatively last minute during half term week. Our family room was on the second floor, which meant you did not hear too much noise from the pub downstairs when trying to get the children to sleep. The room was a good size, with high ceilings, and had obviously been refurbished recently. Continental...

Couldn't really fault the hotel for the price. Central to everything so ideal location. Rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated. Staff very friendly. Good choice on the buffet breakfast. Some reviews mention noise from the street, it wasn't a problem to us at all and our room was facing the main street. We are early risers though! Personally I...

The hotel is in the centre of Ambleside which is positive for access to all local shops but negative in terms of noise from the street. The car park is small but we managed to get a spot - I read on a review there is a car park space for each room and this makes sense. Check in is...

The hotel was in a good location in the centre of Ambleside, the staff were friendly, the rooms were really nice- well-decorated, spacious and clean, the evening meal we had in the pub/restaurant downstairs (which was an Ember Inn) was tasty...

A good price for a family room. Location in the heart of ambleside with tesco express nearby for the forgotten family essentials. We were concenered that it would be noisy for children with the pub below but that was not the case. There was a secure fob system to prevent anyone else coming upstairs to the rooms so it felt...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you're looking for a hotel in the Lake District, this Cumbria lodge is ideal. Set in scenic Ambleside at the head of Windermere, England's biggest lake, it's easy to reach from the M6. Nearby Windermere Station is just a 15-minute drive away. From Ambleside, it's easy to explore Windermere's 26-mile long coastline on foot, by car or by bike. Discover the lake's great choice of water sports, or treat the family to a launch or steamer trip across its magnificent waters. Just an hour's spectacular drive away is Scaffel Pike - England's highest mountain and a beautiful, breathtaking hike. Also in easy reach are Stock Ghyll Force, an awesome 70-foot waterfall; and Hill Top - Beatrix Potter's 17th-century farmhouse and a time capsule of her life. On rainy days, head for mock-gothic Wray Castle - where kids can don fancy dress and live out their own fairy tales, or use huge foam blocks to build fantasy fortresses. After a long day outdoors, you'll love collapsing into one of the lodge's double, twin or family rooms, all with flatscreen TV and free WiFi. Refreshed and relaxed, come down* to our cosy pub and enjoy a well-earned tipple with some hearty, freshly cooked food. *Children are welcome to accompany parents or guardians eating in The White Lion's family dining area. Please note residents' parking is limited. ... more   less
