What a fabulous guest house this is !!.We stayed here with family to celebrate a golden wedding and we couldn't have made a better choice. Peter and Ruth were fantastic hosts and went out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly, even as far as to ring restaurant without our knowledge to make sure everything was in order.

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we were unable to stay on our chosen date. Nevertheless I would like to express my gratitude towards the owners of Ambleside for their patience, understanding and kindness over the past few weeks concerning the unfortunate events that conspired against us. They were also able to resell our room,at extremely short notice, so... More

The breakfast dining room was especially pretty set in the bay window facing the street. The plantings the dooryard were neat and pretty, pansies, I think. Parking behind the house was a tight squeeze, but we were able to walk almost everywhere, including to the theatre. Hosts were very professional in their services.

Comfortable spacious room, quiet and cozy. Lots of breakfast options, all delicious. The owners took extra effort to provide information about available tours and good restaurants in the area. Great location - easy walk into town and to Holy Trinity which has a lovely Evensong service. As a solo traveler, I felt well cared for and so appreciated all the... More

Immaculate room - comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Perfect location (including parking) - a variety of excellent restaurants, town centre and river all within walking distance. The best breakfast ever, cooked to perfection. Peter and Ruth make you very welcome. You arrive as guests and leave as friends.

Wonderful stay with helpful and friendly hosts. The rooms were very clean and tidy, tea making facilities in room. Car parking space was a big bonus. Only negative was they only had showers no bath which would have been nice after a day of walking. The location for the town centre is superb, less than a 10 minute walk and... More

We only stayed here for 1 night but would have been happy to stay longer. It's ideally situated near the town centre and has private parking at the back of the house. Everywhere in the town is within easy walking distance. Our room was spotlessly clean and we enjoyed a good breakfast. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would... More
