The hotel is ideally located in the centre of Ambleside. We were in a 'lodge' behind the main building, which was accessed through a couple of doors. The room itself consisted of a large bedroom with doors to a balcony overlooking a stream /waterfall, which would have been lovely in summer (but was a bit damp to use in late October). The bathroom was clean and tidy, the shower had a good flow, but tended to splash on to the floor a bit due to a small partition. Wasn't an issue other than making the floor a bit slippy. Car park was busy, but always got a spot - you have to negotiate the rising bollards and use an exit code - drive up to the bollard when you arrive and it automatically retracts into the ground. You get the exit code from reception. Breakfast was the highlight of the stay - excellent staff who took very precise notes of what cooked food we wanted and delivered it quickly and without fuss. Good selection of fruit, yoghurt and other buffet based foods too. Would certainly stay here again.

This eco-friendly hotel is located in Ambleside (Lake District), close to Armitt Museum and Gallery, Rydal Mount, and …More
It has extensive facilities, a good WiFi connection. A good size swimming pool, (no time to use) with a first class restaurant serving a good chose of styles on 'hot plates' including an extensive Breakfast selection. A late serving Coffe Shop which is useful if your arrive back late, a safe 10 minute walk to Patterdale Chuch for your Saturday Night musical interests. During the warm weather our Top bedroom was very hot during the night with no breeze to cool it down, the following morning I found 'Fans' were available!!. We enjoyed the lake side views, mountains and the lake steamer passing by, just a short distance down the road from the hotel, I noticed 'Electric car charging spaces' at the jetty. We had to park with approval by the staff in the disabled parking space at the Glenridding Hotel as all other spaces in the (3?) parking areas were full.
Slightly difficult to find. Would recommend G.P.S. coordinates be included now with all listings.
A very nice, modern hotel set in wonderful gardens. We could see Lake Windermere from our room.
Approx 10 min walk from the hotel takes you down to the lake front and all the activity around the docks. Another 5 minutes of walking takes you to the high street and wonderful little shops and eateries.
The staff in the hotel were very helpful. The hotel was very clean and well maintained.
stayed at this hotel in December and it was beautiful and warm throughout our stay. Enjoyed the Jacuzzi bath after a long walk, a nice surprise. The pool area was very pleasant.
All the waiting staff were very on the ball and the breakfasts and evening meals very enjoyable.
Lovely comfortable lounges.
