Score from 32 reviews Good
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...!
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.
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.
The hotel is very central, with easy access to all amenities in Ambleside. Despite this, Church Street seems very quiet, with little or no noise to disturb us during the night. Breakfast was very good too. Dorothy, our hostess, was very friendly and helpful. There are countless walks in and around Ambleside, to suit all ages and abilities. We stayed local, managing three walks in the two days we were there. Wonderful views, and you never know what is around the next corner. We visited Matthews Bistro on one evening, and the food and wine were very good. The waiter appeared very knowledgeable about the wine list, and his choice for us was excellent, rounding off an excellent meal. If the red cabbage is on the menu, ORDER IT!!
The bathroom was very small, a tight squeeze when showering or using the toilet! We would have liked two packets of biscuits in the room (one each), not just one.
Excellent breakfast. Room and en suite spotless.
More drawer space would have been useful. En suite was very small.
Great Location. Great Breakfasts Friendly staff ( 12th to 19th July 2014 )
1.Attic accommodation. 2.Very narrow staircase to access the 2nd floor attic room with suitcases. 3.Dissapointing restricted ceiling height in attic room #7 4.Very restricted ventilation due to small attic window. 5.Lack of private parking immediately adjacent to B & B
Location and helpfulness of staff
We enjoyed our too brief stay at Hillsdale which is perfectly situated and has it's own parking very close by - a big bonus! Very comfortable facilities and great choice at breakfast. Dorothy, who was in charge during our stay while the owners were away, is a great hostess, welcoming and friendly.
Location, cleanliness, good breakfast, quiet and comfortable!
Room very small.
The hotel very nice Lindsey and George very nice would definetly stay there again and would also recommend it to family and friends
George was very helpful & breakfast was superb.
Very good breakfasts Friendliness of the hosts
Wet weather on last day
Immaculate room; delicious breakfasts; excellent location
Comfort, cleanliness and breakfast.
Traffic noise early on market day.
Friendly hosts, beautiful rooms, scrummy breakfast, perfect location for walking weekend.
Going back to work!
Enjoyed wholesome well-cooked breakfast. Comfortable dining area and an excellent choice of cereals. Our room had a large wall-mounted TV and a selection of drinking glasses.
Room very small and room for only one chair to sit and relax. En suite bathroom was well supplied with luxury soaps and towels but unfortunately the shower water pressure was weak.
