We had a most wonderful four days at Brantfell House. Chris and Jane could not have been better hosts. The breakfasts were some of the bests we have ever had at a B&B. the bed was very comfy with beautiful linen. Spotlessly clean with no request any bother. Would definitely return
Nothing at all.
Breakfasts were superb. The bedroom decor was modern and tasteful. Very friendly and helpful owners and staff.
The location was excellent and Brantfell House was very comfortable- great shower and Bed! The breakfast was also very good.
A very warm welcome on arrival from Jane and the dogs. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice and the dog also gets a sausage. Will definitely be returning to brantfell as we felt so welcome and at home.
Breakfasts were excellent!
Rooms were adequate but a bit too small for comfort
Excellent Breakfast, best ever
No private parking Very small room
The room was very clean and there was plenty of space for the two of us. Enjoyed use of free wifi and the kettle in the room helped us wind down after the trek up the mountains. The staff we very friendly and the breakfast was delicious
The staff were friendly and always helpful.
The double bed was actually 2 single beds put together. They came apart a couple times but that can be overlooked as the comfort was still great.
The friendliness of Jayne and Chris and the location of the guest house.
Lovely owners and staff :)
The breakfasts are supurb: full English with personalised choice of ingredients, made to order with quality ingredients and cooked beautifully. If you don't want full English there are several other alternative cooked meals including veggie ones. Home-made fruit compote is also provided - goes well with cereal or yoghurt. We had room 3, a large light room overlooking the green. Bed was very comfortable. Good location close to wonderful restaurants, bus stops etc.
Hard to get to a train station from here, but we knew that already.
Views from the windows over the bowling green. Very close to amenities in Ambleside. Lovely breakfast, including pancakes. Friendly staff.
The B and B is on the main route through so traffic noise, although double glazing helps. There is limited parking at the b and b, although the owners have permits for the pay and display and road parking- just ask.
Jane, Chris and Julie made us very welcome and the made-to-order breakfast was excellent.
Booking.com showed the wrong room on their details, but although the room was smaller than advertised on Booking.com, it was well equiped and very comfortable
Selection for breakfast was excellent,lovely food. Can't fault anything.
Best b&b weve stayed in it was freindly, spotless clean , great location view from room was lovely all in all 10/10
Couldnt fault it......
amazing breakfast, great hosts, room was small but lovely, very very clean, asked for a fan and ironing board, received these as nothing was too much trouble...
lights in bathroom too dim to shave. the fact couldn't stay any longer!
Nice friendly welcome,immaculate and well kept house,breakfast perfection and quality, will be coming back again.
The hosts, Jane and Chris, and their staff were lovely. Breakfast choice and quality was great. Parking onsite or nearby. Location in Ambleside is perfect.
Great breakfast and staff and excellent location
The room was very small and really stuffy and the bed was a small double bed.
Cannot fault the room. We stayed in a large double because we are used to a large bed, we were not disappointed. Yes, it's 2 beds pushed together but they were securely together and did not move apart at all. Breakfast was superb with an incredible choice, never been given such a wide selection in a B&B! This may sound silly but the piece de resistance for us was the quality bed linen and towels! We are not petit and having a bath sheet that wraps right around you rather than a multitude of 'large' ones precariously anchored was such an unusual plus point! The devil IS in the detail and they've got the detail right at Brantfell House.
There is limited parking but don't let that worry you; Chris will find a solution which doesn't involve a cost. Parking is no more tricky at Brantfell than at most establishments of its type.
Friendly staff, can't do enough to make your stay comfortable. Lots of choice in how you want your cooked breakfast, all done as required and fresh. Clean room.
Brantfell house bed and breakfast is a very clean, comfy and in a great location opposite ambleside park. The hosts and staff were very friendly. The breakfast menu had a good selection of choice and the portion size was large. I would recommend to friends.
Chris & Jane were a lovely couple and really welcoming. The waitress who served at breakfast was also a lovely lady. Unfortuntately, I cannot remember her name. The laundry was perfect and lovely and clean.
Unfortunately the toilet wasn't cleaned very well and the shower wasn't cleaned at all during our stay.
very comfortable bedroom, clean Chris and Jane were very welcoming and flexible with our arrangements, grreat breakfast
flights of stairs to top bedroom might be a problem for some
Close to town. Great food and friendly staff.
Low ceiling and felt slightly cramped.
