Just returned from a lovely week in Ambleside Lake District staying in a wonderful holiday cottage so felt the need to write a review! The cottage is in a great location - walking distance to all amenities, shops, restaurants etc, close to Lake Windermere. The cottage was immaculate, tastefully renovated and fully equipped with more than everything you need in...

We arrived at 8pm on a Friday and was pleasantly surprised that we could park the ok (they have 4 separate parking places at the back of the hotel as an overflow). Room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent and the evening meal was good and reasonably priced (you can get a three course table d'hote for £23)....

Having only previously had lunch at the hotel it turned out to be very much as we expected. The food was excellently presented and wholesome. The room with a balcony overlooking Ambleside was a bit on the small side but very well appointed with a large bed. The hotel appears to be in the midst of a complete refurbishment with...

Nice hotel in prime location at top of the main road. All very nice, room, food, staff, BUT parking was a nightmare. Car park much too small for the hotel and if you have a large car, forget it. Our bedroom was right on the front so the view of Ambleside was great ( see photos). Handy to travel to...

We also had a balcony area with fell views which would have been lovely with if it hadn't rained! This hotel has a large pool gym and spa in the basement which...

As soon as we arrived we were made very welcome. Our room had a balcony which was an added treat. Lovely room and very clean. We eat in the restaurant in the evening which was pleasant but not brilliant. My husband had a problem with his main course but it was dealt with efficiently .
