- Huge room - Comfy Bed - Breakfast Choices
- Tight, steep & narrow driveway
We enjoyed our stay. The staff was always ready to help.
The whole atmosphere and the friendliness of the Staff was great
I think it was a little overpriced and particularly the evening dinner
The staff were amazing and friendly. The breakfast is just superb and the meal that we had ordered up to the room one night was brilliant. Absolutely loved our stay there - we didn't want to leave!
We stayed in room 1,an amazing room with lovely views. They have a room menu with meals/snacks/wine available. We had supper delivered to our room (chicken korma, rice and nan bread)at 9pm at a very small cost. The staff could not do enough to make our stay special. The full English breakfast was great. would defiantly recommend The Lake House and Ambleside.
Great location 3 mins walk from Waterhead & 10 mins walk from Ambleside along the road. Nice steeply sloping garden with a bench in a shelter to sit in. Stayed in "The Hideaway", 4 little flats in an outbuilding, 2 of which shared a small private courtyard - very nice for a family. Excellent breakfast sausages!
Great position, view from breakfast room over the lake. Even though our room was on the top floor, it was comfortable and spacious. Beds really comfortable!
Lovely views, quiet room, excellent breakfast, location ideal for exploring the lakes, able to leave the car at the hotel.
Wifi reception ok outside the room but not inside. Lounge comfortable when needing to use ipad.
Well positioned overlooking Lake Windermere and within comfortable walking distance of central Ambleside. Good places to eat and drink both across the road from the hotel and in Ambleside itself. Very comfortable rooms, good breakfast, safe parking and little noise at night.....which is a plus point.
The rooms, the breakfast especially the cumberland sausage, the location so close to the lake
Large quiet room and comfortable bed
Was expecting more of a view of the lake and the entrance driveway is on a busy road
Nice view, very near to the lake. Kind staff.
very hard to find the place when just arrive, no host at night.
Large bedroom and bathroom, Nice breakfast Good location Value for money
No air conditioning,
Location...the breakfast and room were superior to most
It's position is ideal; close to the lake, restaurants and village centre. Room was really nice and the staff were really helpful. Breakfast was good and so was the evening meal options.
The milk in the room made drinks taste awful. Ended up buying some coffee sachets.
Excellent for access to Lake Windemere and a short walk into Ambleside.
Lovely, comfortable and clean room. Beautiful views across the lake. Friendly and helpful staff.
Lack of full length mirror in room.
- Staff very helpful and friendly - Rooms very clean - Great location - Very nice breakfast
Lovely guest house in a perfect location. Breakfast was very good and the room was comfortable with a stunning view over Lake Windermere.
No real complaints but just a few slight niggles. The shower in our room was a bit shabby and kept sliding down the fixture. It was also impossible to adjust the angle of the shower head, so if you had the shower on full power it would just shower the entire bathroom. Wifi is not available in the rooms, only in the lounge area and this was a real nuisance as mobile coverage is quite poor in the area.
Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff
Bed, breakfast, friendly helpfull staff.
