Room with a view
Stayed in room 4. The view over Lake Windermere was lovely. A brilliant location, just a short walk into Ambleside. Although no restaurant on site, we visited the Wateredge Inn for our evening meal and the food was very good. Totally relaxing short break - wished we could have stayed longer.

Consistenly good
Second time staying here having enjoyed it so much a coupel of years ago. Was in one of the external rooms rather than the main house which are decent enough if a little odd. Get more light let in through the shutters and the blind on the door than you would through a normal room. The blind also seemed ineffective at keeping in heat so you have to turn it on more than expected, though it was very cold outside when we stayed.

I highly recommend this Hotel. Only minor issue we had was the double beds in the basic room are really small and the pillows are uncomfortable. Other than that, an amazing stay.
