We had two nights B&B here and also had dinner on our first evening. The hotel is located about 10 mins walk from the centre of Ambleside in a quiet situation in its own grounds. Having pre-warned them of my non-dairy requirements they made every effort to accommodate this, both at breakfast and in every course of dinner. The choice...

My wife & I had an a la carte lunch & it was the best lunch we have ever eaten. All the courses were so delicious that we ended up wiping our plates with the home made bread to mop up any remaining gravy & sauces. As well as the fabulous starter & main course the extras treats they provided...

Room comfortable, clean and cosy. Nice size bed. Very pleasant staff. Tried the taster menu in restaurant and it was superb. Lovely cocktails too especially the Rothay Bramble. Oh and excellent breakfast, we'd love to visit again.

Just spent a couple of nights at this hotel with my husband, kids and our dog, cannot rate it highly enough. Our suite was one of the nicest I have stayed in and the food was exceptional- we ate from the more informal bar/ lounge menu which was perfect with children. The staff work so hard and all were extremely...

I visited for afternoon tea with 2 friends. Friendly staff, great selection of loose leaf teas and delicious savouries, cakes and scones. The mini lemon meringue pies and macaroons were especially good. Will definitely come back!

Choice of teas extensive, presented in a tea box so you can look and smell the teas before ordering. Lovely coffee also available. Very pleasant waitress brought the beautifully​ presented cake...

A warm welcome, friendly and efficient staff, beautiful dining room and lounge with excellent food. Bedrooms clean, large, warm and comfortable, though not as modern as downstairs.Would stay again- ten minutes walk into Ambleside, car park and annexes for guests with dogs.

We had arranged afternoon tea as a surprise for family. The staff who served us were beyond helpful and polite, they couldn't do enough for us! The afternoon tea itself was wonderfully delicious and the atmosphere was extremely relaxing. Beautifully presented and a lovely treat! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an afternoon treat.

From the outside this hotel looks like a fairly standard Lake District pleasant hotel. Inside the not imposing front door is a pleasant little reception next to a lovely bar area and two lounges. The reception service was friendly and efficient and our room was very spacious - as well as the bedroom there was an attached small area with...
