  • Relaxing Hideaway

    We have just returned from 2 nights away in Ambleside. We will definately be returning here. We took our 2 dogs and had one of the hideaway rooms. This was perfect for us all. The room was spotless and modern. I really couldn't fault it. The staff were amazing. We were greeted by John who couldn't do enough to help. He offered to take our bags to our room and provided us with so much information which was invaluable. All staff work so hard and are so friendly, helpful and polite. They work so hard and their efforts show! Breakfast was fantastic. We had a full cooked breakfast which was cooked perfectly and set us up until dinner time. (With a cake break in between) We will definitely be returning! Thank you all!

  • Weekend away

    Just returned from a two night stay, hotel is situated perfectly for exploring Ambleside and the surrounding areas. Hotel is lovely and clean and staff and fantastic, so polite and friendly. We stayed in a double room (no2) which is right opposite reception, we were a little apprehensive about the room at first, as we anticipated lots of noise but it wasn't too much of a problem. Breakfast is delicious and you can take a dvd into your room to watch from their collection. We had a local takeaway delivered to us too which was nice as we just wanted to relax one night. Overall lovely hotel and would stay again.

  • A Top Place To Stay

    As part of my wife's retirement gifts her boss paid for two nights for us the Lake House, in Ambleside. We loved the experience! It is 0.2 miles from the centre of Ambleside. Our room was spotless, well-appointed and had everything we needed for our two days away. There is ample parking (a bonus in Ambleside) The staff were polite, friendly and very helpful. We had breakfast there. Between us we sampled four different breakfasts. All were quality produce. There is a wide range of hot and cold breakfasts. It was our first stay at the Lake House. It definitely won't be our last. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed!

  • The Lovely Lake House

    We have just got back from 3 fabulous nights at The Lake House. From the minute we arrived to the second we left, everything about this hotel was fantastic. Every member of staff was helpful and friendly and they are all a credit to the place. Our room, number 10 on the top floor was great and had a view out over the lake to die for! Each morning we woke up and looked out to a different view as we seemed to experience all four seasons during our stay. The bed was very comfortable and the room cleaned every day, the whole hotel was spotless. The dvd collection in reception was a nice touch, particularly as one night we wanted to stay in and relax after a day exploring the area in the sunshine. We enjoyed the breakfasts very much, cooked fresh to order - the scrambled egg is particularly good! Waking up to snow this morning, I had secretly hoped to be snowed in totally so we would be able to stay longer! We most certainly will be back.


    We usually stay in Windermere or Bowness when we go to The Lakes however this time we decided to stay in Ambleside. We stayed at The Lake House and we weren't disappointed. On arrival we were greeted with a big warm friendly smile by John. He was extremely friendly, very professional and very helpful. He showed us to our room and even offered to carry our suitcase. We stayed in one of the Hideaway rooms just behind the main building. The room was very light, airy and warm. The room was beautiful, large and spotlessly clean. The beds are the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in away from home. Breakfast was fantastic. Plenty of cereals, fruit. yoghurts and seeds. There was a choice of juices:- orange, apple and cranberry as well as iced water. We had the full breakfast both mornings which was cooked to perfection. The dining room had stunning views of the lake. The Hotel has a lovely warm. cosy atmosphere and the staff are fantastic. They made us feel like part of the family. There is a car park on site for all residents. The local is great as you are just across the road from the Pier for the Boat across to Bowness and only a couple of minutes drive from the Town Centre. We have already recommended this Hotel to friends, family and work colleges. We will definitely be back it felt like home from home. Thank you all for a great weekend, A special thank you to John for all his help, recommendations and lovely welcoming smile. We give this Hotel and staff full marks all round.

  • Brilliant Stay

    Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a long weekend as part of my birthday celebrations in October 2017 and on the day of departure we did not want to leave this lovely place. We stayed in one of the Hideaway Rooms and it was gorgeous - incredibly spacious, airy and beautiful. The room was exceptionally clean, the staff were lovely and the location of the guest house was great. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend anyone to stay here.

  • Lovely place.

    Just had a lovely 2 night stay here. We were very impressed from the start of the stay to checking out. The staff couldn't do enough for us and made us feel very welcome. The room we had was well presented and the bed was comfortable. Short stroll into ambleside so car was parked up for 2 days in their car park. Highly recommended.

  • Wonderful place

    We stayed for 2 nights in December. Fab location as 10 min walk to Ambleside and less than a minute to the lake. Rooms were really clean, staff really friendly and the breakfasts amazing! Bed so comfy and can't fault this place, will definitely stay again. We had no issues with parking etc.
