We stayed in one of the hideaway rooms and it was simply perfect.
Very welcoming, great breakfast and with lovely views. I recommend as a base for a lake district jaunt.
Fantastic B&B, very friendly staff and really helpful. Great location and superb views. Breakfast was delicious and set you up for the day.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. I would recommend Lake House to friends. I would definitely go back.
The Hideaway room was lovely with a great en-suite, breakfast was excellent and served in a comfortable well appointed dining room. Staff were friendly & very helpful.
Choice at breakfast was good,size of room also and the bathroom was very clean with a fast filling bath.
Can't think of anything to dislike.
Great location very comfortable accommodation and an excellent breakfast outstanding
love the location of the hotel located near the Waterhead pier with an ease to access to Ambleside town centre and Windermere, plus the condition of the room (size, facilities, etc.) were decent.
Cannot really think of it, especially when the sun was out on the second day of stay, could'nt be any better!
Excellent location right on the lake Short distance to Ambleside town Nice restaurants and pubs near by
No shower in ensuite. No privacy glass in bathroom. Small portions for breakfast.
Location was ideal, a 2 minute walk to the pier to catch a boat across Windermere, not too far from nearby Ambleside village or Bowness. We were put in the 'Hideaway' room which was very warm, comfy, spacious and clean! It even came with underfloor heating in the bathroom which we weren't expecting
Although the bed was a good size, it wasn't the comfiest. Only downside whatsoever.
Style of building. Speed of service (particularly breakfast). Advice on local walks and dinner options.
Nothing comes to mind!
Location Friendly staff Nice breakfast
No proper shower Heating made a noise all night, kept us awake!!
Location and good breakfast
Room was freezing on arrival staff were called to fix the issue. Took a very long time to warm up. Not the cleanest, DVD player couldn't be worked with the remote. Just a bit disappointing overall.
Excellent staff, very good breakfast and ideal combination of this and the Regent hotel where full dining facilities are available
Hotel entrance a little difficult
We specifically booked The Lake House so that we could have a view of the lakes. Instead we got a back room overlooking the courtyard.
I've reserved a room for 2 adults and a child in the booking.com, but did not appear on the reservation with the Lake House, I ended up paying £20 more per day for 1 child.
good quality tasty hot breakfast served to you lovely view from our room and from the dining room had two great meals at sister hotel, The Regent, next door, although it's only a short walk into Ambleside with a great choice of places to eat
The staff were very thoughtful, changed our room to avoid some strong smells of joinery repair without prompting. Comfortable and a good association with the Regent Hotel nearby for evening meals
It needs wifi in the rooms!
Peaceful, comfortable and a room with a view.
We would have liked a proper shower not a hand shower connected to the bath. But it did not detract from an excellent stay.
the view from the lounge. opportunity to watch videos the I newspaper
lack of dining facilities
Quiet, well ordered, spacious, charming, and lovely staff, great food freshly cooked to order.
All staff were very polite & attentive. Room was clean & nicely furnished, with excellent bathroom facility. Had evening meal at sister hotel, The Regent, which was excellent.
Minor issue in bathroom, door stopper situated in wrong place, causing door not to open fully, stayed in room 8
The standard of our room for the price and the wonderful view of the lake. The staff were really friendly to.
The steep driveway leading up to the hotel may cause some drivers to struggle and the parking was a little tight.
Very welcoming, friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable, spacious rooms. The tasty breakfasts. The location for walking, sports activities, the lake and the hotel location relative to the town ( approx. 10 / 15 minutes on foot ).
I don't like dogs being allowed into the hotel and guest rooms - put them in a kennel or elsewhere.
Excellent location with fine view of Lake Windemere. Food excellent although it would have been nice if evening meals were available.
We had to go to a "sister" hotel to have dinner which could be inconvenient especially in bad weather
