Spent three nights at Rothay Garth and I cannot recommend it enough. Got a lovely welcome from Laura, room was perfect, breakfast was amazing and the owners were so helpful. Real bonus having a car park too in the centre of Ambleside. Thank you so much, we hope to go back some day!

My daughter & I spent 3 nights at Rothay Garth early November. It was cold, grey & wet outside, but the wonderful welcome we received more than made up for the dreary weather. We were met by very warm & friendly staff who made us feel really at home immediately. Our room was small, but perfectly adequate, clean & comfortable....

The welcome we received was exceptional and the hotel is in a lovely location. Accommodation is good and was very warm and cosy. My only issue was the breakfast which despite advance notice didn't really cater for vegans. We were given child-like portions for the cooked meal compared to meat eaters. Maybe veggie sausage/tofu would be useful additions to make...

Lovely guest house with parking, friendly hosts and super breakfast to keep you going up the fells. Our room was spotlessly clean and although small very comfortable. There is a large lounge if you want to escape and have some quite time with a good book. The staff are very helpful and extremely courteous. would recommend no problem.

Excellent location, plenty of parking, great breakfast, welcoming friendly hosts and a very nice lounge which means you can relax in comfy chairs rather than be confined to a bedroom as most B&B`s offer. The room was a tad small, but the lounge made up for this.

The shower was blocked with hair and we were told that it has not been cleaned all season but would only take few moments to clean!! also it was so hot in breakfast room. when ordering breakfast we didn't always get what we ordered.

Close to all the pubs/restaurants etc. Breakfast - fresh fruit bowl is good, Cooked breakfast was standard level - good but nothing...

Clean and comfortable rooms, delicous breakfast, owners/staff very friendly and acommodating. Great location, near hiking. Convienient to many destinations in the Lake District. Much prefer Ambleside rather than Windemere. Quiet rooms. Could use a bit of updating decor. WiFi not available in all rooms. Best WiFi in comon areas and lounge.
