The room was spacious, modern and clean. A restaurant was onsite, and the hotel is adjacent to Ambleside pier where you can catch the ferry. The service was excellent, with polite staff. Overall, I would certainly stay at the Regent again and recommend it for anyone visiting Lake Windermere and the national park.
