I booked this guest house on the day I planned to travel to Ambleside. I was desperately seeking somewhere on the busiest aug bank holiday in the lakes and it had to be dog friendly. From my initial call to this hotel I was met with warm and knowledgeable enthusiasm.
My only reason for not giving 5 stars across the board is that compared to other boutique hotels I have stayed in, the styling is a little tiny bit 'frumpy' but everywhere was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Though no hairdryer in the room this was offered to me on arrival.
This guest house has a modern and luxurious feel and so I think some of the detail you find in, for example, du vin hotels wouldn't be out of place here - water as well as tea and coffee, good toiletries. For that I would score 5 stars for all. However, this guest house is worth choosing purely for the customer service - impeccable.
Breakfast was continental only which is made very clear when booking and offered a good selection for all from the muesli crew to the meat and cheese munchers. Personally, I went for pastries!
Properly dog friendly with dog bowls in the room, wooden floors in my pet friendly room.
A great stay!
