Good sized room ensuite comfortable bed . Extensive breakfast . Friendly & helpful owner .

The lack of sauces or out of date sauces that's it
Lovely place. No problems. The only thing I would say is the sauces in the breakfast where either out of date or none left.

The location is close to Ambleside center. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. The breakfast was great and we would recommend this guest house!

The breakfast server was quite rude on a few occasions, both to ourselves and another party. Strange to have to be at breakfast for 8.30, unless you stated otherwise. Most places I have stayed have a longer window to have breakfast.
Generally good stay, very friendly owner who made us feel very at home. Good location very short walk into Ambleside center, parking quite close.

Small family B&B, managed by a very nice couple, loved staying with them. Good location between the lake and the town and near the bus stop. Great breakfast.

Only real complaint was that the mattress was very hard and thin. It was a real shame as other than that the accommodation was great value for money.
Great, friendly service. Room was a good size and shower was hot. Perfectly located between Windermere and the town centre. Fine for crashing for a few nights. Breakfast was excellent and had great options.

For me, the bed was far too firm which meant I did not sleep very well. (Grasmere twin room)
Great central location with parking nearby, nice and clean, a good hearty breakfast with plenty to choose from & helpful welcoming owners.

noisy,by the road and mattress uncomfortable,no on suite toilet or bathroom
26 August 2014
First impression not good as outside very scruffy appearance, paintwork needs cleaning and re-painting. Room was small double, needed to shimmy around the bed, also not very clean, carpet was dirty, wallpaper needs replacing, didn't like sharing a bathroom. Inside was tired and need de-cluttering.
Breakfast and owners were friendly

the room was small, the tv worked intermittently, the shared bathroom not ideal
getting a parking permit, and they looked after our bikes
7 August 2014
Problem with the toilet not flushing, but the owners were aware and quite happy to sort it out. Parking in Ambleside itself was a bit difficult
We liked the friendleness of the owners. The cooked breakfast. The room was small, but very clean. Car parking. It was good that the owners had a permit for the nearby car park.

Cleanliness is a huge deal maker or breaker for me. The carpets were grubby and there was a lot of dust and grime behind the bed.
The staff is friendly and the food was very good.
11 July 2014
Terrible first impression. Front door filthy and covered in cobwebs. A spider seemed to be living in the bell push. It didn't reflect what was inside at all.
Charismatic place where the owners had tried hard to supply everything that you could need, right down to the temporary toothbrush should you have forgotten your own and a small fridge for you to store your early breakfast if you had to leave early.

Found breakfast very poor. Didn't like Fry up sausages, or mushrooms Didn't like croissants Water in room gave me stomach ache, put sign up! Tell us before we park youwant the tcket for your accounts, as could have easily thrown it away Size of room was very small PG tips ran out and wasn't refilled over 3 days Fridge makes very loud noise, difficult to sleep
Sharing bathroom, clean and good shower Hot chocolate

The British breakfast was really good!!! The hosts are very nice!! The rooms are clean and lovely with a teddy bear!
13 June 2014
The Wi-fi is a little slow
Almost everything,it is a warm perfect room with pink wall paper and a large bear!(we are both girls) It is really a quite room,It is very beautiful.The breakfast is delicious and healthy,I said I do not eat pork,and the grandpa change it into a chicken sausage so I can eat it!The grandpa is very kind,he can tell you everything.The bathroom is a little small,but it doesn't matter to us.

Amazing breakfast and packed lunch. The genius of its location is that it's equidistant from the head of Windermere and Ambleside central for all your entertainment needs!
10 June 2014
Very friendly, atmosphere, great breakfast. Perfect location.
10 June 2014
The decor could do with an overhaul and our carpet was a bit old and worn.
The cooked breakfast is excellent. The little extras are a nice touch; a bit of brandy by the bedside and a little sewing kit. Having a little fridge in the room was a great bonus.

We had the Windermere room with the 4 poster bed. The room was dingy with not much natural light and the en-suite shower room was way too small and cramped.
Alan was extremely helpful and informative. Breakfast was great and deserved the award that they have won for it. Location is fabulous,being only 5 minutes walk from Lake Windermere and 10 minutes from the centre of Ambleside. Great value for money.

Nothing really disappointed us. The price is a bit steep but in retrospect worth for what you're getting.
Staff are very friendly and hard-working. Location is ideal: just 10min walk from Ambleside centre and also good base to start walking/hiking from. Breakfast is absolutely gorgeous, the options/choices as well as the quantity and quality of the food are excellent. Beds are comfortable and big. Room was very spacious and comfortable. 24h access to accommodation.

There was an odour of cigarette smoke in the hallway coming from the private part of the B&B, which is a little surprising when booking a non-smoking place to stay.
Friendly and welcoming, they were very accommodating when we arrived later than check-in time on the Friday evening. Lovely breakfast with lots of options including very nice smoked salmon and eggs! Thanks!

The staff were friendly and knowledgable, and the room was very comfortable. An excellent guest house which I thoroughly recommend. Jon
