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
Owners were very welcoming & knew the area well. They were only to happy to honour our extra requests & breakfast was tasty!
Ensuite was very compact but still clean & functioned well. No wifi in the room which was would have been useful.
George was so very helpful with providing advice on the local area. The room was very comfortable with the best instant hot chocolate. Bed was comfy, lovely towels. Lovely breakfast was cooked fresh and tasty. The best service.
Pillows were too hard for me. It was warm so had to keep the window open but that meant a lot of noise from the busy road below with constant trucks/buses/cars/pedestrians. Was not happy that when paying there was a 2% credit card surcharge we were not made aware of by booking.com but George was reasonable and waived the fee. Any additional fees should be itemised when making a booking - all the other T&Cs are there.
Lovely hosts, lovely room it was a lovely stay
No mini fridge in room
Very friendly and helpful. George always willing to make suggestions for things to do and places to go. Lindsey's breakfasts keep you going for the whole day. Delicious. Rooms spotless and very comfortable. Located on one of Amblesides quieter one way roads but centrally located and has secure parking available, just a short walk across the park. Thanks for a great weekend. Paul and Anchy
Cannot think of anything negative to say - other than regret not finding this place sooner...!
Had a fab 2 night stay here with my partner. There's lots of restaurants and pubs withing walking distance. And just a 10 min drive to the beautiful Bowness on Windermere. Hillsdale owners were so friendly and helpful and the cooked breakfast was a dream! Room is spotlessly clean and has everything you need! For the ladies, the most important hair dryer is also provided! As well as tea and coffee facilities, ironing board/iron. Bed was really comfortable too. Will definitely return here in our next trip to Ambleside.
Stayed 2 nights. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Location was very good with lots of restaurants close-by Breakfasts were excellent. Would definately go again and would recommend friends.
Friendliness of staff, good breakfast. Good local restaurant
Rooms a bit cramped.
We went as a group of 4 people and from the very start till the very end everything was perfect (except the weather !) George was very helpful and answered all our enquiries, the breakfast was lovely and was made to order. The rooms were very cosy & clean and it was really nice to get biscuits and free coffee/tea/hot chocolate in the room. Overall I recommend this little place. The owner is very helpful and made our stay pleasant & comfortable.
Our toilet was a little bit small for my boyfriend who was 6'2 tall, other than that no complaints at all.
Wonderful stay and really comfortable and easy. Huge thanks to the wonderful Dorothy! Ken G
My husband and I stayed here with our daughter and her fiancé, our room was lovely and a very spacious bathroom although our daughter said their room had quite a small bathroom, very clean and fantastic breakfast and hosts very helpful.
With the exception of our daughters rather small bathroom everything else was superb
Stayed for two nights for my girlfriends birthday, George was super friendly and helpful with local advice and recommendations plus the location was in the heart of Ambleside. Definitely visit again.
George and Lindsay made us so welcome, and the Accomodation was immaculate. Breakfast was delicious and the owners were very knowledgeable about the area. Would definitely reccomend.
Cooked breakfast, type of soap in shower, tidying of the room during the day, warm welcome, little extras like providing weather report and drying boots
Wifi not working unfortunately
Excellent filling breakfast with a wide range of choice. Comfortable bed. Great location and staff.
VERY small bathroom. Shower plug hole was blocked and looked like it had been for some time. This made the basin slippy and dangerous. I informed the owner upon checkout and he said he would see to it straight away. In fairness, he had just returned that day from 3 weeks holiday so he would've been completely unaware of the problem, the cleaners should've picked up on it though
Stayed for a weekend and staff were very friendly and breakfast was lovely and made fresh, the hillsdale is also very near the bus stop as well.
Loved the cleanliness and comfortable feel. Excellent breakfast.
Shower function was a bit poor in the top room, however this is being picky.
