This hotel is situated in the perfect location for visiting Ambleside. You can walk to most places or catch the local bus. The hotel staff are very friendly and welcoming. The hotel was everything we wanted and more. The food was excellent. I cannot find a fault and would definitely return to this hotel.

We love this hotel! Every member of staff is so helpful and polite. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with everything you need . We loved the fact that we had a bath as well as a separate shower and there was plenty of hot water. Also, the robes and slippers were useful to use for the pool area . The restaurant was excellent - menus were changed daily for the evening meal and were cooked and presented beautifully. Plenty of choice for breakfast too . I wish I was still there now.
