The breakfast choice was enough to suit anyone, whether it be cooked, kippers,...

Stayed for 3 nights in a superior room and as usual had a great stay along with good weather. The hotel is ideally situated near the lake side, is a short walk from Ambleside, has friendly and efficient staff, lovely rooms and great food, what's not to like! This was our third visit and we will certainly return again next...

Lovely hotel, great restaurant, good location and right on the lake side. Very friendly staff. Rooms very slightly creaky at night but clean and comfortable. Nice to be away from the town centre. The breakfasts are excellent- have the full English or eggs benedict.

Had an enjoyable two night stay at the Regent Hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly, the food lovely and the rooms although not large were nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. The hotel is also in an ideal location.
