Room was clean and modern with a really comfy bed and great shower. Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great. Bit further from town than we thought but not a problem. Would definitely stay here again.
Room could have been a little warmer and the tray that the tea and coffee was served on was completely naff for such a lovely modern room.
The reception, the restaurant, the lounge, the room, the food, and the staff were all excellent.
Nothing to dislike.
The reception bar & restaurant were just lovely and the breakfast was amazing.
The room was a little small not the best view but still comfy clean and warm after a day walking. The public areas made up for the lack of a view.
Pleasant, helpful and courteous staff, nothing was to much trouble and the room was lovely and clean, breakfast and food very good. It was a very lovely weekend.
The room was uncomfortably hot and we had the heating turned off, there was air con that we could have used but due to having asthma I do not like using air con.
picture of standard room is a garden room. Had to pay a supplement as we were originally offered a family room with small double and a single...not what we booked. Had to pay £20 per night extra!
Quiet convenient, very well situated.
The walkers breakfast was great recommend it and plenty of car park space even after being out loads of space when on you return
The late breakfast
Really pleased with the location of this hotel. Room was better than we expected and clean. Bed was a little too hard for us but we are spoilt at home with our mattress. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. The most outstanding part of our stay was the staff. Very polite helpful and professional and a credit to the hotel manager
We both really enjoyed our whole time spent in this hotel, the stylish decor to the food and of course the excellent staff also this hotel was spotless
Can't fault this hotel at all friendly clean welcoming rooms well laid out and comfy
Had a warm welcome friendly atmosphere rooms were exceptional value for money food excellent great location would defenatly return to this hotel in future
Location, friendly staff, very comfortable room and a hearty English breakfast.
Excellent location, close to the pier for the steamers and Ambleside only a short walk away. Food was great, especially loved the fact that breakfast was available till midday. Staff were fantastic and the rooms were well set out and comfy. Hope to visit again.
Very friendly and helpful staff, restaurant was amazing, lovely and clean room, great location
Only downside we had was being in a room (superior garden) that had a room above us and you could hear every footstep and when they ran their water. Didnt effect us too much except when we were in our room in the early afternoon, was a shame as everything else about our stay was excellent
Great location Very friendly hotel Food variety and quality excellent Nice and warm Very comfortable bed Great parking availability Friendly atmosphere in hotel One of the best hotels I have stayed in. I'll be back
No dislikes at all
Fantastic choices for breakfast. Cosy bar and good food. Friendly and helpful staff
Breakfast Very Helpful Staff
They delivered a newspaper to the room and charged for it. But I was never asked if I wanted one.
Rooms are always excellent, staff welcoming and always friendly and nothing too much trouble. Breakfasts are excellent and from 9 till 12, the dinners are always great. Will be stopping again
We were up graded from a superior garden room to the beautiful Sail Loft - which would be wonderful in the summer, drinking tea on the balcony over looking the lake. We'll go back in the summer. The food - breakfast, bar meals were excellent and great value and the staff couldn't do enough to please. Will certainly be back.
Nothing! The November weather - but hardly their fault!!
The staff, the food, the ambiance, the room, everything mostly.
Would have liked a bath as well as a shower in the room after a long day hiking.
The hotels location, facilities & excellent food.
The staff, the hotel, the food, everything was really good - we would go there again & the weather was perfect too which was a bonus.
There was nothing not to like about The Regent
'Queen sized' bed was very short, but then so is she I suppose...
