Stayed for 2 nights in a Club class room including breakfast. The check in was quick and efficient, the room was a large front facing double with a balcony. It was very clean, tea/coffee, bathrobes and slippers provided, fridge, safe, and plenty of hanging and storage space. The breakfast was served to the table, lots of choice and was hot really well presented and very tasty. We didn't have any other meals in the hotel, and didn't have time to try out the pool and gym, but we will be back.! Only 1 small negative comment, the car parking was a tad confusing, we didn't know all of the bays belonged to the hotel this could be made clearer with signage.
The hotel has lovely views of the lake. The facilities are up-to-date. It is well situated in the Lakes District relative to various places to visit and ease of travel to other ares of the Lakes (e.g., good bus service).
It was one of the cheapest options we found on expedia, but was a great place. The food was very good, the host is super friendly and nice.
Only downside is that it could be a bit warm, but a provided fan did the trick, and it is off of a busy trip so could be noisier than you are use to.
Room was clean and comfortable. Bed was comfy with crisp clean linen and plenty of pillows. Ensuite bathroom was equipped with a shower offering very hot water. As this is a room only hotel there is no reception so you get a key for the front door.
The hotel is in a perfect location close to many walking routes and hills around Ambleside. We didn't need to use the car for two days. Free parking is available off-site. The town offers restaurants and pubs for all tastes. Some are quite pricey though. Overall we had a great stay in a beautiful location.
The immediate friendliness and professionalism of the hotel's owners was apparent the moment I arrived with my needs and requirments dealt with, within minutes. I was settled in and comfortable before I knew it.
Much appreciated, especially the generously delivered local knowledge about the town of Ambleside itself.
Enjoyed our stay at Macdonalds Swan Hotel.We were in room 33 and the view was lovely.The room was very comfortable,clean and catering for your every need.It's our second stay at this hotel and couldn't fault it, but would like to have seen a smile or made to feel more comfortable by one of the waiters.he acted very professional but could have been a little more welcoming.
Had an absolutely amazing time at this hotel; my only regret would be I only stayed there for 1 night. I booked out a Superior Room, which for me was one of the Garden Rooms - I have no idea if all Superior Rooms are Garden Rooms, so something to indicate this would be useful perhaps. The Garden Rooms are also set back off the road, so it's lovely and peaceful.
Staff were brilliant, the room was simply amazing (with it's own private terrace) and the location of this hotel is perfect. Easy to walk into Ambleside from there, only about 10 minutes.
Didn't eat in the restaurant, though it looked very nice when I walked through it.
Also purchased room service for breakfast and late checkout. These are available, though chargeable, but definately worth it - so look out for them when you checkin.
