Situated in the heart of the picturesque Lake District National Park, Glen Rothay is opposite Rydal Water and a 20-minute bus ride from the scenic town of Windermere.
Score from 76 reviews Very good
A 5-minute walk from Ambleside and a mile from Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in England, this charming guest house was originally 2 separate Victorian cottages.
Score from 74 reviews Exceptional
Looking out across the beautiful Lake District, family-run Meadowbank bed and breakfast is just 5 minutes’ walk from Ambleside’s charming centre.
Score from 79 reviews Excellent
The traditional Grey Walls hotel is located in the centre of beautiful Windermere and a 5-minute drive from the Lake District National Park and Lake Windermere.
Score from 288 reviews Good
Proprietors were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was excellent. Parking onsite is good. Location is beautiful and there is lots to do in the area.
Hotel is in need of a touch of TLC. Decor is dated and bed is squeaky We paid for an ensuite, yet our bathroom was separate from our room and only accessible via the hallway, we weren't provided with a key to lock it, allowing other guests to use it. I wouldn't want to stay here more than one night. No WIFI.
No heating in bathroom in superior twin room. No extracter fan in bathroom either.
Views of the lake Breakfast
Bed was uncomfortable
The spaciousness of the garden suite

Location Friendliness of staff/owners
Bathroom absolutely tiny Curtains and window cushions dirty Price
Spotless, welcoming bit of lakes luxury, warm and inviting, great central location

bed and not havin en suite.
There was nothing to dislike
Snug lounge with log fire. Location. Friendliness of staff
En suite was small and tired looking
Central location for the Lakes made an ideal choice
Difficulty of access for an old person - we managed!
Location for walking
Noisy road and beds pretty solid but comfortable apart from that
Very pleasant and helpful owners. Excellent breakfast served in vey nice dining room.
Our particular room is due for refurbishment, which should be happening soon.
The kindly owner.
The hotel being situated on a very busy road.
The noise from the busy road outside. Misleading photo on the hotel website of the dining room set for dinner which they don't serve. It is a B & B, not a hotel.
Staff / owners could not be more helpful or friendly Free bottles of mineral water given when you go for a walk! Very nice breakfast Lovely atmosphere
The hotel is in the perfect location to access Windermere, Grasmere and Ambleside with a bus stop directly outside. Set in beautiful surroundings you have access to the hotel gardens. Breakfast was included and was lovely - choice of cereals etc or full english alongside juices, tea or coffee. Plenty of tea and coffee making facilities in the room that were fully stocked upon arrival. Very friendly staff!
Possibly the friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever encountered in a B&B
The house feels ever so slightly dated but it is being updated.
Couldn't sleep as traffic noise so bad. Shower room was no bigger than a broom cupboard (no space to even hang a towel) so could not shower.
The care taken to make sure we enjoyed our stay.
The people were very helpful the place was clean the food was good
Friendly welcome on arrival and at breakfast. Lovely breakfast. Beautiful garden. Riverside location. Very convenient for visitingto Wordsworth 's house. Old world atmosphere.
The bedrrom was very small.It should have been let as a single room. also the bedroom was on a corner so 2 outside walls walls and windows were very close to main road..-so the noise of passing traffic was disruptive which allied to an uncomfortable mattress did not make for a good nights sleep. Shame, as the place has lots of character.and friendly staff.
the overnight stay lived up to expectations.
Can't think of anything. By the way - avoid solid food at The Badger across the road.
The breakfast was excellent, beautifully cooked and presented. Buffet table was also a delight. Location is out of this world, and pub down the road had badgers who came to feed!
Bedroom was small and the shower also. Understand refurbishment us in hand and is overdue.
