Score from 448 reviews Good
we've been here several times previously stayed in four poster rooms. Nice and handy for loughrigg fell & zefferrellis Breakfast is lovely
furniture in rooms is a bit basic could do with a bit of upgrading (even though we were told it had been recently upgraded there wasn't much change) needs more luxury Toilet wouldn't flush
Very comfortable, clean, friendly staff, great breakfast.
Wifi could use some improvement in our room at the top.
A lovely combination of professionalism and personal care.
Location and public Areas
Would have preferred a good Walkers Cooked breakfast
Clean, great location and nice sized family rooms.
Staff charming and helpful. Buffet breakfast excellent quality, very enjoyable.
The Brathay is well-located...close to city centre, but far enough to be quiet. The staff was outstanding; very friendly and accommodating. We'll definitely return!
The location was great and family room layout was fantastic. Very nice to have both an internal entry as well as a balcony style open to the parking lot.
The buffet style breakfast left a bit to be desired. The buffet did have a number of options but if you looking for a traditional full english style breakfast (no eggs/bacon/sausage to be found) then you will be disappointed.
Good location close to village centre ..... Would re visit
Warm welcome from proprietor. Excellent breakfast.
Location and parking were good, friendly staff, comfortable room.
Hot during breakfast, a long way to the top floor!
Good location close to all amenities in Ambleside. Friendly and pleasant staff. excellent continental breakfast. Roomy ensuite.
Bedroom rather small.
The ground floor rooms
Location was great. Staff friendly. Nice breakfast. Clean,comfortable room.
Bath is excellent. I enjoyed jet bath. relaxed my feet and comfort. Food is good as well.
The floor was squeaking. But it is not big problem.
Couldn't fault it, breakfast on the 2nd day only my husband and I and another couple but the quality and everything you need in a buffet breakfast and more than enough for us and didn't scrimp on the portions of everything even though there were only us four,hope to be back in the not to distant future
Great place free Parking a big plus the general ambiance about the place.
Plastic shower curtains and poor water pressure on the top floor. If we hadn't been reasonably fit the walk up the top stairs is a slog.
The BnB is very central to Ambleside with parking available. Rooms were comfortable and clean.
This place is more like a small hotel rather than a BnB, hence hostess didn't interact with us which is unusual for B&B's. The breakfast was simple and mostly cold (croissant were dry, no fresh fruits and mostly from cans). I would definitely rate the place to 4-star if it improves its breakfast quality.
We had a warm welcome and given great information on arrival and directed to our lovely room. We had one of the ground floor chalet style rooms which was spacious, clean and comfortable with great facilities, we couldn't have asked for more. The breakfast which is contintental style was lovely, again everything we would have wanted. The location in Ambleside is excellent and the parking on site a real bonus. We had a lovely time made even more special by the accommodation exceeding our expectations. We will stay again.
Central location for start of walks, shops, buses and places to eat in the evening.
Too many stairs to 3rd floor and very steep at the top. Further from lake cruise stop than I expected.
Friendly staff and good location, spacious room
Not ideal putting a room right next to reception, you can hear every comment made. Doesn't really provide the element of privacy that you would expect from a hotel
Good spa and position，nice breakfast and kind staffs.
