I have to say I am on the whole very critical of hotels but I really couldn't fault this one. My husband and I stayed here with another couple for New Years Eve. We only booked the night before and struggled to find anywhere available in Ambleside so having found this hotel had two rooms we weren't expecting it to be one of the best. In fact it was great. First of all on arrival there was parking available which if you are familiar with Ambleside is a real bonus. Its also close enough to the centre to walk anywhere you like. The rooms are huge. We had the cheapest room available but it happened to be a family sized one so was well worth it. The rooms are very clean, modern and appear recently decorated,. Ours being a family room, we had two televisions. The breakfast was decent enough. Ok its continental but there is a very wide selection of foods available. To finish off the staff are very friendly and welcoming. We booked via booking.com which only gave us the option of a twin room. Within minutes of booking on the internet I received a call from the hotel asking whether or not we would want the room making up as a double. Excellant! As I say, I couldn't fault it and will definitely stay here again (that is if I can pursuade my husband not to camp!)
