Good location and breakfast
Very small room
We had a funeral to attend but wasn't until midday and we didn't quite know what to in between time because of having to leave the room by 10am and he allowed us to stay over which I thought was really throughtful of him Very impressed
Greeting Breakfast Local knowledge of the owner Cosyness of the room
Comfy room, good breakfast and friendly host.
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
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.
