Unique Experience.

Posted 30-May-2017
Pros: Its querky uniqueness, and the staff were brilliant.
Location: Perfect location close to all amenities in Ambelside on Lake Windemere.
We felt like we had been transported to a Swiss Alpine resort. The Food was excellent ,we chose the Steak on Hot Stones and finished the cooking process to our own liking at our table whilst looking out at the magnificent views surrounding the Hotel. The Staff were great and we even joined them at a local nearby pub to watch a brilliant guitarist. We had a wonderful stay and to anyone reading this brief, we would say,get yourself there !!!!

Staff were pleasant and more than helpful. Restaurant looked nice but we ate at a different restaurant in Ambleside. Room felt a little small and tired. The bathroom could also have done with a better clean. Didn't feel like we got value for money and disappointing as we booked due to other good reviews.

Quirky hotel

Posted 25-May-2017
Pros: It was in a nice position in Ambleside,
Cons: Maybe a little more attention to the On Suite
Location: We only stayed in Ambleside for one night but we took in the local sites and visited the garden centre, will visit again and hopefully be able to book
On arrival the bar man was very friendly and helpful, told us about the area and nice places to eat, obviously recommending they Log House which we opted for, the food was excellent and the staff were lovely and friendly, a little on the expensive side but worth it.

Unusual property in busy Lake District town

Posted 11-Apr-2017
Pros: Unusual Scandinavian character.
Cons: More choice for breakfast including fruit, pastries, hams, yoghurts.
Location: Great location just back from the lake and central for many attractions in the Lake District.
We were attracted by this unusual property. for a 2 night stay. Our room was at the rear so we did not hear the busy road outside. Parking (we were given a permit) was across the road. The room was comfortable and equipped with all facilities including wi-fi and was accessed via a separate entrance. Both breakfast and dinner were enjoyable meals.

Nice hotel but overpriced

Posted 03-Apr-2017
It was noisy when we wanted to sleep as the down stairs is a pub, nice pub though with nice (but overpriced) food. You'd hear neighbours. The bed was bouncy and uncomfortable for us. It's got a nice shower though. We enjoyed the dinner and beer outside the pub and the next day's breakfast. It must be a well-known pub as there was a high footfall on Saturday night.

Thank you for the review, however it would have been helpful for us if you had pointed out your issues at the time of departure as we do not like to see our guests dissatisfied. I am afraid that Saturdays in the Lake District is a popular day for all local businesses.

Easy walking distance to Ambleside centre

Posted 26-Mar-2017 on Ebookers
Cons: Clarity on timing of breakfast, I was told 9.00am which was late for me but when I went to take my case down at 8.30 people were already eating.
Perfect location for overnight stay when visiting Ambleside. Welcoming staff, perfect that they provide parking across the road (give you a voucher rather than having to pay and display). Room comfortable, clean if a little warm but 'Lofty" explained this and what to do.

Friendly hotel with excellent food.

Posted 18-Mar-2017
Everyone at this small hotel was very friendly and helpful, making our stay enjoyable. The building style is quite unique, location is walking distance close to Ambleside and the edge of lake Windermere. Really excellent evening meal, drinks and breakfast. Have eaten here a few times and would definitely recommend and go again.
