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.

Good access, free parking, central location.
Breakfast too early - narrow time gap! Our room on main road hence very noisy traffic at night.
Friendly welcome. On-site parking. Close to town centre. Fell views.
Some herbal teas in room would be welcome for those who don't drink tea/coffee. Shower room could do with extra shelf for toiletries etc & towel rail.
Second visit and would certainly book again when next we go to the Lake District. Centrally located, easy walk for all the amenities shops, pubs and a variety of food outlets catering for all tastes. Always a wonderful welcome from Ann & Paul who have vast knowledge of the area, great breakfasts, clean and comfortable rooms creating a pleasant,relaxing atmoshere
Nothing not to like
Everything about it!
The hosts were very friendl, they certainly make you feel at home. The breakfast was very tasty!
Excellent B&B. Perfect location. Owners were friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
We enjoyed our stay at Wordsworths Guest House very much. We couldn't find anything to grumble about as it was one of the best places we have stayed in on our Lake District holidays.
The owner, Anna was really lovely and welcoming. The room was very clean and always warm. The location was excellent. On departure, we were offered help with our cases to the car. Warm and friendly atmosphere. We were offered help with walks that we enjoyed. Tea, coffee and biscuits were replenished daily. Food offered for breakfast was excellent.
The parking was pretty tight, not a tarmacked parking area. Then had to park at the back of the property, then walk up the garden path. The room did not have proper en-suite facilities. Just about room to have a shower and toilet in En-suite area, then walk into the bedroom to wash your hands! There was only one Mirror in the room, located over the sink. No actual dressing table with room to put personal items. Beds very uncomfortable. No tissues in room or replenishment of toiletries. Barely anywhere to put anything, other than a wardrobe, bedside table, or table that housed the television. You only have an hour to get down to Breakfast 8-9am!!!
Everything, host very welcoming, room spotless and breakfast excellent.
Friendly reception on arrival, room spotless, well furnished & excellent views. Parking too which is not always available in Ambleside. Cannot fault, would definitely visit again.
Nothing to report
A bit pricey, for a B&B. Have stayed in good hotels for less.
Lovely accommodation, lovely breakfast, the owner Anna was really lovely and friendly, and really helpful.
Very obliging and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast, very comfortable and clean. Close enough to all facilities to leave the car in the ample car park as parking in Ambleside is a nightmare.
Having to leave
Charming and cute B&B. Very clean and welcoming.Warm on a cold and wet day.
everything , central ,good private parking , Anna and Paul have everything spot on.
Lovely breakfast, though would have appreciated Weetabix option! Very comfortable, no creaky bed or floors, underfloor heating in shower room welcome.
Yappy dogs whenever you came in from the car park, and signs of dogs on the lawn! I'm not a dog lover!
Very clean and friendly
Everything, very friendly, warm welcome.
A warm, friendly welcome from Anna, light airy room with ample facilities and a good hearty breakfast. All in all an excellent stay!!!
The pillows could have been a little softer, but that is a personal preference which would not prevent a further stay in the future.
Spotless and great value for money
