Score from 436 reviews Superb
Breakfast was lovely
Room was smaller than expected and hated the fact it was up so many stairs
Great host, excellent breakfast, lots of choice and nice quality, very accommodating and a great location for exploring Ambleside and the Lakes. Gorgeous views. Good quality toiletries and spotlessly clean.
No wi fi in room (though to be expected perhaps given the location), slightly small bed for two and not the roomiest bathroom. Not personally a fan of down bedding as lots of people have allergies and I don't find down pillows comfortable. But additional pillows were quickly provided on request. Parking limited but the host was very helpful in providing parking permits.
Really nice location and well kept B&B
Can be difficult to park
Excellent fresh food for breakfast
Would have liked the breakfast to continue a little later , otherwise it was a excellent stay. Highly recommended!
Very friendly staff and delicious breakfast. Rooms and bathroom were spotless too. Ambleside is a lovely town which is ideal for exploring the national park as it's centrally located.
Parking is limited around the guesthouse. This was the only problem we had there.
Welcoming, very comfortable
Location and the room was very spacious
Value for money. Too expensive
the room was very comfortable and clean. Gorgeous breakfast very very friendly welcoming staff i would definately stay again 10/10
only thing i missed (but its just me) was a mug in the room for my morning cuppa !!
We loved to stay with Rysdale Guesthouse, and Allan and his wife were very kindly and helped us with places to go. Free parking and wifi. We can just recommend to have your next stay at Rysdale Guesthouse.
Friendly proprietor, excellent bedroom, good breakfast.
Breakfast Location Friendly and knowledgable owner
One or two plug sockets in need of repair
Great breakfast s
Lack of good parking
The breakfast was superb, beautifully cooked. The room was comfortable and immaculately clean. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The central location was excellent.
No off street parking
Alan, our host, was absolutely lovely and our room was really clean and comfortable. It had a wonderful view out of the window and breakfast every morning was just right the amount and all freshly made. Couldn't have asked for better and would highly recommend to anyone else looking for a central base for exploring the Lake District.
Fantastic view from bedroom window. Very good breakfast . Owner very welcoming and helpful.
Lack of information about area in room eg. emergency numbers ,local GP ,pharmacy etc . Restaurants and pubs . Needs new background music at breakfast .Three boyzone tracks on a loop not good every morning .
Comfortable beds, clean room, excellent breakfast, good shower
Restricted time for breakfast (8.30-9), same two songs on a loop played every morning at breakfast, negative attitude of b&b owner
Brilliant breakfasts cooked to order. Lovely room tastefully decorated.
Noise from being on the main road.
A lovely b&b with a wonderfully helpful and friendly owner, Allan. Great location, beautiful room and excellent breakfast. Would definitely stay again.
Nothing to dislike.
Good food. Good place. Nice hosts
A bit cold at night
Was a very lovely place to stay. Even thought it was not close to were I want to see with some help I did get to see what I wanted to see. People where very helpful.
The B&B is in an excellent situation having great walks within a short distance and the local pubs and resturants only minutes away.
Although staff were aware that the TV remote did not work and the shower door jammed they did nothing about it only suggested that we use the buttons that were on top of the wall mounted TV and when using the shower push the door with your foot.
Loved the room decor, very friendly host, ideal location. Would definitely stay again!!
Everything! Alan was lovely from the minute we arrived and made us feel very relaxed. The room was very comfortable & clean. The breakfasts were amazing! Proper home cooked food! Coffee was amazing also! Would definitely stay again!
That we had to come home.
Alan was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble-VERY entertaining and always had useful info of area and directions.Lovely and quiet and a brilliant location and base to travel from.Will definately be staying there again!-BREAKFASTS were wonderful- thankyou Dianne- The house was welcoming and tastefully decorated to match the period-have obviously worked really hard to create a great Guesthouse.
Cant think of anything negative to say.
