The bed was quite hard and didn't provide the most comfortable nights sleep.
a mix of modern and traditional with good food. Residents can reserve a table for dinner which I would recommend as dining is busy. Nice breakfast.

The staff could not have been more helpful and cheerful. From checking in to checking out all the staff bar gave excellent service with a smile. We ate at the hotel both nights and the food was excellent. It was also nice not to be ripped off with the wine which unfortunately made us drink more!

There wasn't anything at all not to like, the only thing that was a bit confusing was breakfast, it included continental which was ok, if you wanted a small cooked breakfast you had to pay £3.95 which my husband did, it was ok
Everything was great from getting there to sadly leaving. It was packed out both nights we stayed there. We also had food the two nights we were there which both times was excellent, even though they were extremely busy we didn't have to wait long for our meals

This was the 3rd time staying in Ambleside but the 1st with young children and the accommodation was perfect. The room was lovely and the staff ever so friendly. Would definitely stay here again. With or without the children with us. Thank you for a lovely stay.

16 March 2015
The room was beautiful but the main double bed's mattress was not very comfortable we could feel the springs on our back & woke with aches :( The kids didn't mind it (much lighter) & my hubby & I slept on the sofa bed 2nd night which was very comfortable compared to the bed!
Centrally located for shops/restaurants & beautiful lakeshore, very clean & spacious family room with excellent en-suite facilities with plenty of clean towels. Plenty of closet space/hangers. Nice window alcove dining area with great tea/coffee facilities. Considering located above a very busy pub noise was minimal & very quiet after 11pm when pub closes. Delicious breakfast with plenty of drink refills, family staff & comfy chairs especially around the open fire very cosy! Great parking facilities too. All in all a fantastic stay & brilliant price which included breakfast; we will be returning in the future.

We could hear lots of noise from the street with drunks late at night.
It didn't feel like a chain hotel but was full of character. Staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Brilliant staff - had a room ready early for all of our family to use to get ready for a family wedding - really helpful providing a taxi firm with a big enough car to fit us all in. Rooms are decorated lovely and my sister's bathroom was huge! Will defiantly be going back.

Only problem is the beds may be too firm for some people although I did like it my wife was less impressed.
Tue staff were really helpful and nice, they couldn't do enough for us and really made our trip! Rooms were really well presented and clean.

Busy road outside in the morning, is on the loop road through town. Perhaps the council could put in some traffic calming features to slow them down?
