Stayed in room 1, booked the four poster for my girlfriend. Room delightful, facilities great. Sarah just the right host. Lovely breakfast and a great location. We would have expected more noise given we were in a town on a busy road but hardly noticed it.

we stayed in the king room (room 5) from Saturday to Monday. Geri Mick and Sarah are lovely people, very friendly but unobtrusive and made sure you had everything you needed. Lovely clean rooms, comfortable beds and great breakfasts. Will definitely be staying her again.

Lovely room on the top floor. Very comfortable. Traffic passing can be noisy as this establishment is on a major corner in Ambleside. I had breakfast in bed and it seemed no issues for the hosts who were very accommodating. A very friendly run bed and breakfast and good value for money.

This is a B&B in the centre of Ambleside with a friendly reception and great views from the room. However our "king size" room was quite small and the furniture didn't really fit. The mattress was way past it's best and in need of replacement. The en-suite shower room was small, I had to sit on the toilet at an... More

We stayed at Lacet House at the beginning and end of our Inn Way hiking tour of the Lake District. Geri and Mick could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and their daughter, Sarah, brightened our breakfasts.

This B&B would easily get 4 stars but for the traffic past your window. All traffic passing through Ambleside pass by this B&B via the adjacent roundabout . Windows have to be shut until after 10.00pm. Owners here are all first rate. Very friendly and helpful - especially Sarah who serves the very good breakfast in the mornings. The B&B... More
