George and lindsay are the perfect hosts, nothing is to much trouble for them. They made us feel at home. George's knowledge of the local area is tremendous.

George... What a great host
Could improve wireless easily these days... Not that you spend much time on a computer in the Lakes
Everything. Lovely spotless rooms,good toiletries,warm and comfortable. Breakfasts really are first class. Great area to stay with lots of good places of interest and restaurants.
Both Lyndsey and George were the perfect hosts : friendly , informative and helpful . Suggesting places to go to visit on the wet days. Recommending best places to eat , best shops for mountain kit , best low /high walks and routes. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit , would certainly go back to Hillsdale.
Absolutely made our weekend. Lovely and friendly,very clean with lots of little extras!
Perfect hosts, extremely welcoming and couldn't have done more for us. The room was lovely, views over the hills to the rear of the property. Bathroom was great, very cosy, couldn't fault it. Breakfast was excellent. Special parking spaces, which was a real bonus. Overall a perfect stay, highly recommended. Thanks!
Couldn't fault Hillsdale
We appreciated the Friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts and also the help we received carrying our luggage up and down the stairs upon our arrival and departure. The breakfasts gave us lots of energy for touring about and we found the B&B well situated to take the local buses to Hawkshead, Hill Top Farm (Mountain Goat connects with the local bus) and Grasmere. Thank you for our enjoyable stay in Ambleside!
The staff were friendly and helpful; they helped us navigate the one-way system. Parking wasn't a problem, even though we were right at the centre of Ambleside. The breakfast was nicely cooked, and the dining room was clean and the decor modern and pleasant. The room (we had room 8) was clean and comfortable. The small en-suite was clean (no mould), and the shower was nice and hot. Best of all, the bed was lovely and comfortable, there were 4 pillows already on the bed, and we had a good night's sleep.
Breakfast finished a bit earlier than I would have liked ie 9.15am. Check-out was at 10am, again, a bit earlier than I would have liked, but they did give us an extra 45 minutes when asked.
Great B&B. Very clean. Very well located. Lovely staff.
The parking car could only be parked outside for one hour max, but there was a secure parking compound fairly close by
Everything. One of the few places we've stayed that we couldn't fault.
Friendly and welcoming owners , clean , great breakfast and secure parking . Central location in Ambleside . Nice comfy bed would definitely go again..
Small bathroom in our room but well appointed and new with nice toiletries.
Close to bus,walks,town. Knowledgeable hosts. Good breakfast and helpful instructions for parking.
Room was quite small and outdoor wrought iron table and chairs placed in the room were not comfortable. Could easily be replaced with more comfortable alternative.
pleasant host, central location for getting about. secure parking
