Loved our stay at the Regent earlier this year. Great location and top service make it a ideal choice for a trip away! The breakfast in the morning was particularly good too!

The food is superb, the staff great and so helpful, we will certainly be returning. It helps that the hotel has a car park as Ambleside is so busy.

Over priced and over the top, more quality than quantity, but sadly not too much quality to make up for the lack of quantity.

A special offer each night tempted us to eat here. Tasty food and exceptional value. We ate here a couple of times when staying at the hotel and really enjoyed the food and the relaxed ambience of the bar and lounge.
