The location was central with a good size car park. Staff were really friendly too. The hotel also had a shuttle bus service to the lake.
The room we stayed in did not have a dressing table mirror, my wife needed to straighten her hair near an electrical socket.
We was attending a wedding at a near by hotel and the location was right in the town centre so we could walk round the village the day after. The lodge we clean and the breakfast was good. We had a really nice dinner and drink in the bar. We would recommend this hotel.
There was nothing not to like. The only thing I would mention was that the doors slammed behind you instead of closing slowly which would be better for the children's safety.
Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly.
No residents bar, tried to get a coffee at 11.05 on the Friday night after a 7hour journey and told the bar was closed. Told we could not swap fried for poached eggs at breakfast as it was ' health and safety' would also have been nice if cooked breakfast was included with the price.
spacious family room that would easily sleep 2 adults and 2 children Busy pub downstairs with lots people eating making it a good atmosphere ,although we did not eat there ( very busy due to turning on of the xmas lights ) food looked good and the staff were great .
Shower was a bit iffy running hot and cold without warning
staff were excellent and food was great something different each night we ate in. Marks quiz night a must and Julie & Natalie couldn,t have been more helpful will be back next year when weather is better thanks again to you all x
It's town centre location and parking are great. Rooms are spacious. The Innkeepers Team were only too willing to help.
The central location means noise from traffic and other bars.
Staff were very helpful, rooms clean, tidy and well specced. Bar has a great atmosphere and an excellent range of drinks, backed up by good wholesome pub food. All in all, we would happily stay again.
Breakfast not the best, due to a staff mix up
Friendly, helpful staff, excellent room, spacious for a family room in a central location. Lovely clean towels every day!
Advertised as WiFi which there was down in the pub but not in room 7. May have been because it was on the second floor but misdescribed as being all round.
we both love the lakes come rain or shine, the cosy bars, the walks everything. we normally stay in bowness but thought we have a change this time so glad we did. can't wait to go back. the people are so friendly everyone lets on.
lack of restaurants which is a big problem i think. not being able to walk in and get a table for 2 or we had to book. we tried to get in to a Tai restaurant on the Saturday but was told it was fully booked and this was at 6'oclock when the place was empty.. so come on Ambleside more restaurants.
Location and staff excellent. Rooms comfortable and clean
lovely clean room excellent location would recommend and return
The hotel was central and it was possible to book for a one night stay whereas many other hotels insist on a 2 or 3 night stay over the weekend. Parking was available in the hotel carpark.
The central location meant that the street outside was noisy throughout the night. The room was too hot but having the window open meant it was too noisy to sleep. The room was small. It was difficult to get the wifi to work. The breakfast was very basic with not enough fruit. The croissant was poor quality and there was no option of a cooked breakfast.
The pub is in a prime location in the centre of Ambleside . The staff were very polite and helpful . The food was excellent and very reasonably priced , the rooms we stayed in were spacious and clean . It is a very busy pub but spacious, the staff reserved a table for us as requested and we didn't feel overcrowded !! We will definitely be returning soon
Room was great, TV was good, view were nice, and considering it was over a busy pub it was quiet.
The food in the pub was average. Breakfast was boring. Could have had fresh coffee rather than packets! Shower wasnt powerful at all!
Good spot to stay in Ambleside, central to everything. Staff friendly, the room was lovely and would sat again.
Breakfast - only option was instant coffee, and the water for that was only warm not hot. Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but if, like me, you are a coffee head in a morning a bit disappointing.
The staff couldn't do enough & even though accommodation over the pub noise was minimal. Family room very spacious & comfortable. Perfect location for sightseeing & chill out
Comfortable, clean, modern room. We had a problem with the shower in the first room we were allocated but the staff quickly organised another room for us. Excellent food served in the bar.
We didn't like the fact that the bread and croissants weren't covered at breakfast as there were a couple of flies about.
Parking by room and being in the middle of Ambleside
Unable to open window to get fresh air. Understand this is going to be dealt with in due course.
Accommodation Food Staff Location Value for money
Not applicable Maybe parking could have been more convenient. ....
Ever thing was first class the room was spotless the food was lovely the staff made you feel very welcom will defiantly stay again
excellent location rooms clean and adequate
staff need taking in hand and one person should be appointed as housekeeper. ran out of marmalade and water for breakfast. only choice of fruit was oranges
The family room was spacious and newly decorated to a high standard. The bathroom again was newly fitted and spotless. Flat screen TV great for the kids. Comfortable and modern pull out sofa. Terrific central location. Great pub atmosphere and really good food reasonably priced food.
Can't really fault it.
Very clean, friendly staff,comfortable large bedroom and free car parking.
Location, bar food, room gorgeous, friendly staff
kept having to ask for food to be topped up at breakfast, only 2 items seemed to be put out at a time i.e. croissants, the continental breakfast was included but considering the room price the hotel should offer a full english without the additional 6.95 cost
