Great location and lovely rooms. B&B owner is very helpful
Great food Flexible, helpful staff Jack Russell Terriers are lovely
Shower could be hotter
Anna and Paul were excellent hosts throughout our 4 night stay. Always on hand with helpful tips, suggestions and information. Breakfast was very good and our room (which was the largest - no.6) was comfortable and tastefully decorated. The underfloor heating in the bathroom was an added bonus. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this guest house and would stay there should we return to Ambleside.
Very impressed! Great family run guest house. Anna was extremely helpful, accommodating the needs for my older friend. The guesthouse was spotlessly clean and offered packed lunch and clothes drying services, cycle storage and i believe you can borrow bikes. The guesthouse is in a great location with nice views. Plenty of great hiking/cycling trails, shopping and great eating places just 5 mins walk away. Easy access to Windermere, Penrith etc...Plenty of buses for non drivers. I'm looking forward to my next stay here at the Wordsworth Guesthouse.
Location and amenity
Lovely decor, thoughtful and informative staff, extremely comfy bed
Unfortunately the wifi didn't work in our room and the shower head wasn't clean.
Comfort,parking, Welcome, food, closeness to eating places and tour buses. Left alone but advice always on hand. Paul's your man if you want fishing, Annas smile wakes you up at breakfast What's not to like. Highly recommended.
Had to leave to soon.
very friendly,very helpful, food excellent
single room just a bit small
The very British countryside living with lots of space, lovely meadows, countryside, old buildings and palaces and lakes with beautiful views and comfortable walking trials planned for everyone.
We enjoyed our stay, the breakfasts were excellent and served without delay. Nice view from our (rear) bedroom window.
en suite a little small.
Central location, free parking, excellent hospitality, nothing was too much trouble, will definitely look to stay again in the future
Could not be faulted in any way. Comfort, food, cleanliness, friendly.
Very clean with friendly owners, good hearty breakfast and lovely little welcoming touches! Great location, I would highly recommend and I have stayed in many hotels and guest houses.
Breakfast could have been extended to a little later, but hey it makes you get up and out into the gorgeous countryside!
Hosts are wonderful and atmosphere is really warm and welcoming. Close to all shops in Ambleside. Great breakfast.
Solo room is small but that is to be expected.
We enjoyed our stay in Ambleside very much. Our hosts were lovely and gave us excellent recommendations for walks suited to our level (including where to stop for cream tea along the way) each day.
Owners were friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to see.
The room we were in on the top floor was a very awkward configuration with the sink not in the bathroom, but across the room from the bathroom (or another one in the second room). There was no place to put towels in the bathroom, only in the second room.
Cleanliness and friendly hosts.
The staff, the other guests, the food, the location, the car parking.
Most enjoyable stay in a wonderfull guest house. Great location, Excellent breakfast, Even had my favourite scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Very friendly and helpfull in providing information on all aspects of the area. Supplied us with two great walks with outstanding views of Rydal and Grasemere. Would definatly recommend.
the people,the food,accomadation and the parking
Comfortable; well located (even though it faced on to a main road through Ambleside, traffic noise was not an issue) nice decor; friendly proprietors.
Access to/from car park was challenging; instructions in room on how to operate heating and shower etc would have been helpful; no tissues and limited toiletries with no replenishment for the second day of our stay.
Clean well decorated rooms, very comfortable bed. Home from home.
Friendly staff, very clean house, good breakfast. The whole house incl our rooms were nicely decorated.
The room at the top of the building, 2 flights of stairs up, not so good, when you are older or have a mobility problem. The bathroom was small, no washhand bassin in there, which was in the bedroom. TV very small.
the owner was very helpful and friendly. Position in town OK.
The single room was very small but got used to it when settled in.
