As well as a warm welcome, our room had both a seating and a sleeping area, giving us ample space to relax. The location was very convenient with the bonus of off - road parking. Tasty breakfast options,too.
Value for money and a great breakfast.
Nothing, I have stayed before and will again.
We really enjoyed our stay, the breakfast was lovely and so were the couple who owned the Walmer. We will definitely be staying again if we visit Ambleside again.
Nothing to like here.
Appears to be good value - until you see the room. The single room bed touched the wall at both ends, literally tiny box room. The en-suite is dark, cramped, unpleasant. Parking is on a very steep and narrow back yard - getting blocked in is inevitable. I was shown another slightly larger room and told it would cost extra. Even though I said the room is tiny and I could not stay, this landlord said he will charge the full rate for the full length of my booking. The Walmart have an unusual policy on deposits and cancellations - basically they want your money. In the event I found a room at a lovely hotel up the road in a spacious country garden setting for the same price - the rooms there were spacious, clean, and the en-suite beautiful as nice as anywhere I've stayed at any price. The breakfast was hot, freshly cooked and tasty. I won't give the name of the alternative place I found as you'll think I'm advertising for them... But my advice is keep looking and DO NOT book or pay in advance for the Walmar. As you can tell I'm angry and disappointed with my experience of the Walmar. But it was more than made up for by the friendly and comfortable country hotel I found just up the road towards Windermere.
..waking up to an excellent breakfast,I had a full Cumbrian breakfast ,along with toast and marmalade,a fresh orange juice and freshly made coffee,huge selection of cereals and fruit plus sauces etc ... Lovely couple that own the Walmart ...Thoroughly enjoyed my weekend stay here..
I have nothing to write in this section.
Warm, comfortable and well located.
lovely stay. Malcolm (i think that was his name) the host was very lovely and accommodating, allowed me to check in early when i called in to ask about car park, and breakfast is listed at 0800hrs but i had to leave by 0815 so he made me breakfast early. bed was comfy, room warm, shower great, breakfast FANTASTIC. would stay here again.
car park a bit hard to find, but if you call ahead the host can explain it to you, then it is easy :)
Extremely comfortable bed, very clean room, lovely breakfast and friendly staff.
Shower could've been hotter
We have always stopped at the Walmar Hotel when we visit the Lakes, and have done so many times over the past ten years, and each time we've been very satisfied with both the hotel and the couple who run it. You get an ample breakfast to start your day off with and the hotel is always warm when you return at night, whatever the weather.
Friendly service and walking distance to town and lake.
Internet constantly dropped out. Had to go into town to make onwards connections and travel plans.
Excellent breakfast taking advantage of some wonderful local produce!
Nice friendly staff, breakfast area was well set out really clean and spacious, really good powerful showers, beds extremely comfy
Excelent service, very friendly and helpful hosts, great breakfast and unbeatable location in central Lake District.
The location was fantastic and the breakfasts were lovely.
The rooms were a bit small, kept bashing my elbow on the shelf in the bathroom when trying to do my hair.
Great location, friendly and helpful owners, fantastic breakfast and clean facilities. Will definitely return!
Very welcoming couple always smiling great location
Bed very firm would have liked a blanket as I slept on top of very thick quilt due to firmness of bed,still an enjoyable stay
location in center of ambleside, wifi easy to follow instruction folder. bed comfy nice to see them using locally supplied products teabags, soap etc, free carparking! quailty of breakfast hot water
carparking a bit of a headache if you park first having to wait for others to move so you can get out. strict time of breakfast only half an hour no flexability
Bit dated, Expensive for facilities but suppose that is the rate in that area
Bed was too hard and pillows not too comfy.
Bed comfy Breakfast excellent and plentiful Hosts kind and helpful Great shower Excellent location Only small, so very personal.
Having to leave!
Spotless everywhere floor to celing. Lovely host and hostess who are there all the time and do everything themselves. You can trust their impeccable standards and perfect breakfast, made to your own liking. Bedroom perfect with classy,crisp clean linen and well maintained décor throughout the building. Not one negative point. Thank you so much!
Wi fi a bit iffy...
I was looking for a cheap deal for 3 nights in the Lake District. The Walmar offered a very good deal, the room was small but that's what I booked, but importantly it was warm, clean & the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was very nice, nothing to complain about at all.
Friendly and homely atmosphere
Lovely friendly hosts,perfect breakfast and a lovely room we stayed in&great parking facilities,overall a lovely experience will definatly stay again.
