Just stayed for one night at Hillsdale, such a lovely stay! Nice rooms and tasty breakfast, excellent location, but our favourite part was the brilliant customer service from George & Lindsey. We were greeted very warmly by Lindsey and George had some great tips for walks nearby, he knew just what we were looking for! Free parking and wifi also a plus - definitely worth every penny. Will be back as soon as we can!

This was the first time we stayed at Hillsdale and we cannot recommend this highly enough. From the time we arrived George was amazing he showed us where the private parking was and stored our luggage for us until the room was ready. When we returned our luggage had been taken to the room. George was so informative about where to eat, bus timetables & plenty of other information that we would need. The breakfasts were amazing thanks to Lindsey! The accommodation is first class & plenty of towels,tea coffee in the room brilliant.We will definitely be returning to Hillsdale as George & Lindsey helped to make our holiday thank you so much ,

Room Tip: Room 8 lovely king size bed and at the rear of the property so very quiet

It is always a pleasure to read that you will be returning to stay at Hillsdale some time in the future. That alone lets us know we must be doing something right! So pleased that you enjoyed the breakfasts and that you found George to be a fund of information on where to go and what to do whilst in Ambleside. It is a lovely area to visit isn't it? We really are spoilt for choice when it comes to wonderful walks, views, lakes and places to eat and drink!
Thank you again for writing this brilliant review on here. G & L

Excellent welcome by George and Lindsay and superb breakfast - a real home from home feeling. Secure car parking spaces provided a short distance away. Can't recommend highly enough. Ambleside is a great base for touring The Lakes with some great restaurants close by for your evening meals.

We have stayed here a couple of times now and can't recommend Hillsdale highly enough. The accommodation is first rate, George and Lindsay set high standards and work hard to achieve them. The rooms are modern and tasteful, the bed and pillows extremely comfortable. The breakfast has something for everyone from traditional English breakfast, vegetarian option or delicious pancakes. George and Lindsay are so helpful and can point you in the right direction if you want local walks, somewhere to eat and drink, they do everything to make your stay everything you want it to be. We will definitely be back next year to satisfy our Lake District fix

Booked this last minute and glad we did,As soon as you walk in you are made to feel welcome by George.The room was very clean and well decorated and a good size for Ambleside and you get wine glasses in the room unlike some places shower room was a high spec and clean with good water pressure not always possible in the lakes.Breakfast was made with fresh produce and well cooked the Full English was very filling.You also get a parking space a short walk from B&B big bonus for Ambleside. We only stayed for 1 night as we try to get to Ambleside once a month for a break but think you could stay a full week and not feel it was to long.Thank you for a nice stay.

Room Tip: The top floor was very quit didn't think anyone else was staying until breakfast the following morning

What a brilliant and comprehensive review from you....and you only stayed with us one night. `Thank you so much for all the lovely comments you have made on here. We are really pleased to see that you appreciated the strong water pressure in the shower. We had that work done last winter and we are so pleased with the results. So nice to know that you found our breakfasts so nice too.
glad you had a nice stay here at Hillsdale - It would be lovely to see you another time when you are in Ambleside.
