Stayed here on Easter weekend with my better half. Overall great B&B. The owner, Malcolm, greeted me on arrival and told us where to park round the back. Our room was on the top floor, so possibly not ideal for elderly or those with difficulty walking. Overall room was good, fairly small with an en-suite, but just enough for us....

Just spent 2 nights here and I think it was great! The owners were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast set you up for the day. It's right in the heart of ambelside and near some great walks.

Pros and cons. Nice people, lovely breakfast, very central. The road was a little noisy and the heating was rarely on. We both slept with our hats on the first night. There was also some sort of plastic sheet under the normal sheet which I didn't notice but I didn't sleep well - I was very cold, then really sweaty...

Average hotel, definitely not a 4 star as advertised but great location. Rooms not cleaned to a good standard i.e, cobwebs on ceiling, long dark hairs found in en-suite which were neither mine nor my head shaven husbands, pubic hairs around toilet and mirror not cleaned. Breakfast was excellent but Malcom was extremely rude and made us feel uncomfortable. Breakfast...

Great location for Short,medium or a long Break. Reasonably easy to find.

Visited for a long weekend and a real homely place. Really clean and friendly. Breakfast is fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was on the top floor overlooking the town and the hills behind, beautiful. Location is 50m from the edge of town so perfectly quiet. Parking is available in the private car park at the rear...

Great location. Clean and tidy. Parking is advantageous but nightmare - tightly packed together on slope having to move car to let others out. Breakfast - good food but only HALF HOUR slot. Hostess was clearly not impressed by me spending time over coffee. Small dining room. I was told to put my chair straight so that hostess could pass...

Ideal location on the edge of the town centre with free private parking. The B&B is spotlessly clean & well decorated throughout. Great Breakfast menu and all freshly made with local produce. Nice room very comfy bed. The couple who own and run the place are nice, friendly & efficient. We will definitely stay there again. Good value for money.

We were a bit apprehensive before visiting due to some reviews but I can gladly say they were inaccurate. First of all the owners are super friendly, hospitable and want to make your stay as nice as possible. Breakfast is lovely even if there is only a 30 minute window from 830-900. Just get up, enjoy the food and you...
