We had the tasting menu (dinner) with wine selection and each and every dish was perfection. The chef came out to explain a few of them which was great. A lovely way to spend a couple of hours. You won't be disappointed and I would recommend it again and again and again!

The hotel is lovely, but not all that prepossessing from the outside, with a battered, bulging, plant holder as you turn to turn in to the front door. But once you go in, all changes! A lovely warm professional welcome from really friendly staff (and from Bailey (the dog)), excellent facilities, two lovely reception rooms where you take pre-dinner drinks.... More

The young lady on reception was welcoming, professional and knowledgeable, she showed us through to the lounge and took our order, the young manager Craig who served us our Afternoon tea was most pleasant and a really credit...

We were struggling to find a restaurant in Ambleside for dinner, and by chance Rothay Manor had a table in its fine dining restaurant. From the greeting when we walked through the door with our coats being taken to be hung to the petit four with our coffee everything was fantastic!! We both had 3 courses, cumbrian crab & smoked...

Lovely location (with free parking), we had a delicious Sunday Lunch, very high quality food, locally sourced with friendly and very attentive staff. The food was well-presented and price was within the range of what i would expect to pay for a quality dining experience in the Lakes. Looking forward to returning and trying Afternoon Tea
