The owners were very friendly & did all they could to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfast was very good & the room was kept clean
The Claremont is in a fantastic location just on the edge of Ambleside town centre, in easy reach of shops and restaurants. Your hosts Dave and Angie are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble. We were in room 6 which is a family room at the top of the house and thus was comfy and had a dab shower. Breakfasts are seriuosly good and piping hot. All in all this is the perfect place to stay.
Excellent breakfast. Helpful staff
Staff were very friendly, location was great, lots of places to eat nearby. Breakfast in the morning was lovely. An all round lovely stay.
Our hosts were wonderful, providing an excellent breakfast, and lots of helpful advice for our stay. We were able to leave our car in a nearby street with a parking permit for the whole time we were there. Good wi fi and mobile coverage.
It is on a very busy road, part of the one way system through Ambleside. The front bedroom had a bit of traffic noise but it didn't go on very late. It's hard to find anything really that we didn't like!
Great location and a good base for exploring the local area. Lovely owners - friendly, hospitable and helpful (they know the area very well and have great tips and ideas for things to see and do). Very well run business. Nice and clean. Excellent breakfasts.
Dave and Angela were absolutely lovely, nothing was too much trouble The rooms were lovely and clean and breakfast was very nice Would definitely recommend and stay again
Great location, Ambleside is a lovely little town and Claremont House is an easy 3-4 min walk to restaurants etc. the B&B was lovely an the rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. Wish I could've stayed another night at least.
Very friendly and like the deco
The couple running the B & B were friendly and helpful.
Parking can be quite a problem especially when you arrive and want to check in. Car parks were all full and you can only park for one hour on any street from10am to 6pm.
We booked this place at the last minute and so didn't exactly know what to expect. We were warmly greeted on arrival. Apologies were given for our room in that it was on the top floor but we didn't mind as it was the last one left. It was clean and cosy with a nice view of the rear of the property. The husband and wife team who run Claremont House were very friendly and helpful. There was free car parking available which is good in Ambleside. The freshly cooked breakfast was very good. We live I Australia and toured for 7 weeks staying in many different locations...this was one of the best and was a very reasonable price too . [Andy of Gosford, NSW, Australia]
I genuinely cannot think of anything I did not like about Claremont House. My wife Carolyn also is full of praise for the place.
Location of B&B Friendly chatty knowledgeable staff clean comfortable modern rooms
Easy to find. great room, very clean. Lovely couple. Friendly service. In the centre. Room very quiet.
The accommodation was of a high standard. The room and en-suite decorated to a very good standard, providing everything you need for your stay. The welcome was very warm and friendly and the breakfast was delicious with a good choice of food.
The location of our room was at the front of the house and because the weather was warm we needed the bedroom window open. This meant that because of the volume of traffic passing during the night and the noise it made, our sleep was broken.
3min to bus station, lovely town, nice room & delious breakfast.
The room for 4 people wasn't very big but the beds were comfortable
We had a lovely time. Fantastic family room with a lovely view. Ideal location. Breakfast was delicious. Great hospitality. Will defo return soon.
The host is very nice， and lend us some useful stuff——professional map！
Great location/ good breakfast.
Extremely accommodating couple who made us feel very welcome. Great local knowledge and recommendations of walks and restaurants. Great quality breakfast. Lovely rooms - spacious and well equipped. Nice touches such as wine glasses for personal use.
Good location to shops and restaurants Owners very welcoming and friendly, breakfast was very nice and we had a lot of choice. Family room was light and airy, well equipped and very clean.
With the windows open it was very noisy from the main road to the front.
Warm welcome Lovely decor Super shower Excellent breakfast (including veggie option) Really friendly and knowledgeable hosts Central location Visitor parking permit
Poor wifi reception on top floor Creaking floorboards
Friendly atmosphere. good size room and very clean. great breakfast and veggie option.
David provided excellent ideas on where to hike and even provided the maps, and where to grab a good lunch for hiking.
Check in was late (4 pm). Otherwise it was an excellent B&B.
