    Great little hotel where there is a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Perfectly located on the edge of Rothay Park so dog-walking was easy and pleasant. This is also the start to some beautiful walks including Loughrigg Fell. Also convenient for the wonderfully dog-friendly town of Ambleside.

    Excellent service throughout our stay at this warm, friendly, family-run hotel. The location in the heart of Ambleside is ideal for both day-long walks on the nearby fells, and easy access to local restaurants/bars. We've stayed several times before and will certainly be back!

    Hi,. Our family suites give parents their own room and one or two children in their own room too. We also have our own indoor swimming pool - just in case it rains!
