A 5-minute walk from Ambleside and a mile from Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in England, this charming guest house was originally 2 separate Victorian cottages.
Score from 85 reviews Exceptional
Owners were great, lovely 4 poster bed, comfortable room, on the main street but no noticeable noise. Perfect position for exploring the town and surrounding countryside.
The location. Close to the town and lake windermere The breakfast was very good. Nice idea t0 supply an extention lead for extra items we had A very nice freindly and personal feel to the establishment. The tea and coffee were of very good quality. Not just a coffee sachet. I would highly recommend this to anyone
Nothing to deslike. Just one of the rooms, we had 2, did not have any tisues in it
Large room bath not just shower Environmental policy and use of local products. Option of filter coffee or instant in room Well decorated throughout
Welcoming hosts Location Facilities Drying facilities Breakfast
Excellent food powerful showers clean and comfortable place to rest your weary bones after a day in the fells
Front bedroom's a bit noisy with traffic noise
The comfort of the room was good. The cleanliness was good. Facilities and breakfast was very good with good choice.
Parking facilities good have been a bit bigger, it was a bit tight. Also things like carpets on the stairs etc was a bit worn.
Staff were very helpful and gave advice on local restaurants and walks. The hotel was clean and had everything you would need for a short stay.
Our room smelled slightly damp which was off putting but we kept the window open which helped.
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
