Lovely two night stay. Breakfast very good.
They work very hard and thought has been given to everything you will need for a good holiday. The laminated maps that you can borrow just one example. Excellent stay. Thank you.
Just how peaceful our visit was we were give the head table for breakfast nice touch and it was a hassle free weekend. We got lost so the owners guidance meant we arrive with little stress. Superb
A little outside noise but location has to account for it not a problem when sleeping those blackout curtains were excellent
Breakfasts, Vicky and Paul (owners), Everything.
We did choose this on location and price, very competitive. Our room was a comfy double on top floor, 3 flights. Good views and nice big comfy bed! Nothing was to much trouble for owners Paul and Vicky. Nice home made treats to try and buy. Paul made an outstanding breakfast while Vicky really did make you feel at home. I would definitely stay here again as Ambelside was just up the hill and the boat over Lake Windermere was 15 min walk. You really will not go wrong staying here.
Had a lovely break at Elder Grove. Very comfortable room and a great breakfast. Would stay again, Ambleside is our favourite location at the Lakes and Elder Grove is in a very central position within the town.
Ambleside is a lovely town - hosts are welcoming.
Proximity to road, dusty, cramped room, old toilet facilities, musty smells, dog toys around, creeky floors.
Parking !!! Wifi Location
Amazing breakfast, really friendly staff, lovely cosy lounge, very nice honesty bar. We really enjoyed our stay and can't thank Paul and Vicky enough!
We had a front facing room and found the traffic a little noisy
Room, decor, food, every was just right for our anniversary weekend away
putting on weight as a result of the generous breakfast arrangements.
Very nice b & b. Nice room and comfortable bed. Beautiful breakfast with lots of choice, and in a lovely dining room.
Nothing not to like at all!
Lovely comfortable bed. Nice touches, such as home made jam, bread and chutneys. Fab breakfast. Would return and recommend
It's a minor gripe but a later breakfast would be good, though there is an option to have tea and toast at 9.30
clean modern rooms .excellent food and plenty of it. plus attention to detail ,
My mother and I came to travel in Ambleside, the location is very good indeed, very convenient and close to town centre, there is a pier to travel on the lake just 5 min walk from our place. The bed, duvet and the bed sheet were all brilliant! The most comfortable one I've ever slept! All things were excellent!
Great location, fantastic hosts and great breakfast.
Elder Grove was everything we could wish for in a break away, the owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpfull, the food was first raye and the four poster bed the icing on the cake. Would thoroughly recommend Elder Grove as a first rate establishment.
location room (very calm) our hosts were very helpful
wifi very weak shower system not optimum
Everything, the hosts were so welcoming and the place excellent. Location was good ans within easy walking of Ambleside. I would defininately recommend the Elder Grove
Warm friendly atmosphere
Location brilliant for Ambleside shops and restaurants. Generous breakfast with options and nice public areas in the guest house.
Parking is a bit tight for a large estate car but this is a minor point.
Clean Comfortable Excellent breakfast
Breakfast was superb, Vicki and Paul were great hosts who readily assisted and nothing was ever too much trouble for them.
Excellent breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely stay there again on next visit to Ambleside.
We had a couple of very good days staying at this B&B for the first time, Lakes Lodge up the road being full. But Elder Grove was really very good all round except for the traffic noise which wasn't fully resolved with closed windows.
Traffic noise at front of house
Friendly staff, good food and always happy to help.
