Score from 270 reviews Excellent
Our bedroom had a fabulous view. Crow How provide leaflets about local walks of varying length, and it is possible to walk from the door. Very friendly and helpful proprietor who recommended places to eat.
Breakfasts good but not stunning (would have liked vegetarian sausages and better bread). However, gluten free bread much appreciated.
John greeted us with a warm welcome and personally showed us the workings of the room 4 with jacuzzi. The room was tastefully decorated and bathroom was stunning looking pristine in every way. Will we be going back...MOST DEFINITELY... Thanks for a very memorable stay.
Nothing at all but take a torch if dining in town on dark nights as the roadway up is shared with a farm
A well appointed and clean hotel, with fascinating features in a most beautiful if not remote edge of town, It suited us down tot he ground.
everything location was perfect. Room was perfect. Staff perfect Breakfast perfect All in all PERFECT
no complaints at all
The comfort of the guest house and friendliness of the owner. Ambleside is only a short walk. There is a drying room for those caught out in rain.If your looking for beautiful countryside,immaculate accommodation and friendly hosts look no further than Crow How Guest House. It's perfectly situated ten minutes walk from Ambleside. Rooms are spacious and well appointed with room to relax. Excellent breakfast made with locally sourced ingredients (sausage is excellent). The host are friendly and occomodating which provides a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We will certainly go again
Nothing at all.
everything. room was big, bathroom was brand new, breakfast was delicious, staff was great, there is free internet, dvd player and a big selection of dvds and the location is amazing. close enough to town that you can walk, but far enough so there is silence and a great view of countryside.
Breakfast very good quality Nice and friendly Good parking Very clean
Nice to be upgraded, lovely grounds and not to far to walk to town centre
Location was fabulous, spotlessly clean, warm, comfy, great TV and lovely bathroom.
Did not cater for gluten free, although disappointing it would not stop me from returning.
- Great Location - Great Family Run B&B - Highly Recommended if you want to stay in Ambleside
- Wifi was not reliable
It was a great place to spend new year and my sixtieth birthday.lovely and clean and no problem parking and within easy walking distance in to the town centre.
everything ,,,, cannot recomend it enough
Excellent facilities, food, staff, location, everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Crow How to anyone.
Loved the spa bath in the premier room. Well worth the extra money.
Didn't like the dog that chased us down the road at night time coming back in.
Excellent all round,recommend.
The location - just out of the centre but walkable. It was so quiet, peaceful and lovely. Also the owner was extremely friendly and helped us out by lending us his wife's walking shoes and offering good walking routes.
Lovely location, very nice and clean room, superb breakfast. Perfect place for chillax.
The service was second to none. Room extremely clean, spacious and warm. Food excellent. Location fantastic
Bnice and quiet, very convenient to ambleside
Our stay at Crow How was the highlight of our time in the Lake District. The well-appointed rooms, friendly staff, excellent breakfasts, and superior location make this a must-visit site for us on our next trip to the region. What a delightful change from the soulless travel chains and well-known hotels!
this is a wonderful country house guest house. the beautiful building is idyllically located with a wonderful garden. the rooms are excellent, clean and spacious. our bathroom had a whirlpool bath as well as a shower and everything was finished to a very high standard. the choice of breakfast was good and very very nice. a fifteen minute walk into ambleside ensures you dont have to worry about parking. there are plenty of walks around the area some of which are supplied in direction form in the guest pack to use at your leisure. little touches like that are what gives crow how that something extra. i would find it difficult to suggest anything that could be done to make our stay better. it was perfect and we will certainly be back next year.
there was nothing we did not like about crow how
Large bedroom. Wonderful views of country side. Fabulous en suite. Quality accommodation.
Lovely accommodation, spotlessly clean, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms with a relaxing lounge Drying room for clothes and boots when the weather is inclement. Breakfasts were very good with a good choice of menu. Location ideal, with fantastic walks nearby
Great location for walking and near enough to Ambleside for food & drink.
Dark at night need a torch.
This is a top quality location
