This is an ideal hotel for anybody. The food was lovely and it's literally 2 minutes walk from the town centre. We'd certainly stay here again, for longer than 2 nights as there is so much to do
The guest house was within walking distance of the town centre. Quality of breakfast was excellent. Lovely view from the room which was very clean & tidy. Owner and Staff friendly, helpful and welcoming making it a 'home from home'.
Location excellent. Shops and pubs 2 min walk away. The Lake 10 min walk away. Spotlessly clean and friendly owner.
Creaking floorboards from guests moving above you. But within the character of the house so did not mind very much.
road could be noisy but not a problem
The breakfast is on of the best ive ever had
Excellent location Wonderful breakfast beautifully cooked Congenial host
Nothing to dislike
Great location, Great breakfast, Nice room. Clean
Thought was a little expensive
Location, breakfast, parking. this was a relaxed holiday. With a walk or two included. Plenty of places to eat or have tea. Weather was better than expected or predicted for the time of year.
Very friendly. Excellent advice on local walks. Very kind when my wife was feeling ill. The room was big, light and comfortable.
no hot water after a wet day
Accomodation was in bungalow behind hotel so it was very quiet and private. Bathroom was very clean and modern
We both found several hairs on the pillows which made us feel very unsure about the freshness of the bed linen. The bungalow was very cold(August Lake weather) with no possibility of switching on heating even for 10 minutes at the end of the day.
The Ferndale Lodge was fantastically situated for the shops and restaurants in Ambleside. The accommodation was very clean, and the breakfast freshly cooked.
great staff excellent location good value breakfast was excellent would recommend a stay at Ferndale lodge
Excellent advice on walks and central location
Over a 5 night stay the floor was not vacuumed and with all the walking there was a need.
position of ferndale lodge and value for money
we went when it was very hot,the room was south facing.A fan would have been very welcome.
Location, comfortable room ,good food,friendly staff
the b/b the friendly landlord & staff the food the town
being on top floor but that is down to health & age the weather
The location, very close to the village centre and a short walk from the lake, and with private parking was excellent. Room was of good size and clean upon arrival. Good choice for breakfast which you order the night before. Owner/manager was very friendly and helpful.
The rooms overlooking the street can be noisy because of traffic. No lift. Rooms were not thoroughly vacuumed and cleaned every morning. Breakfast service was a bit slow.
Clean room, very well organised B&B, great breakfast with lots of choice, comfy bed, lots of storage space, excellent location.
Absolutely miniscule shower and bathroom - fine for us but anyone larger would have a major problem, smokey smell in reception area.
Excellent location, staff and breakfast. The room was beautifully clean and exactly what we expected for a weekend away.
Shower could be a little more powerful. Sadly we had a rainy weekend which meant wet clothes.. The heating in the room didn't work to help dry out the clothes.
The cleaness of the room, the effectiveness of the facilities in the room
don't supply shampoo and shower gel
The privacy of being located in the rear cottage with our small dog was ideal
It would have been nice if guesthouse was licensed
convenient location, pleasant room, good breakfast, OK car park
Friendly staff, nice breakfast - at least if you came early enough for the berries.
Our room needed vacuuming at the end of our stay, it did not seem to happen, even if the rest of the cleaning was fine.
Great location! Lovely breakfast and friendly staff. No need for a car once you get there as it's 5 minutes walk from the Pier.
The people in the room above us making lots of noise until the early hours of the morning!
