We absolutely loved it here and definitely want to go back. We're a young couple and were worried that there may be some snobbery towards us but the staff were lovely (we arrived New Year's Day so their warm welcome was even more appreciated). We ordered room service late on a cold night and they were still so chirpy then....

The guest house is very well laid out and the breakfast offering is very tasty and very filling.

I stayed here whilst on a business trip and was thoroughly delighted with the choice of hotel. Everything about Lake House is faultless, from staff, breakfast, room and cleanliness. I will return someday soon but on a pleasure trip, so as to enjoy more of the local area. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

The first thing is that the staff are lovely and went out of their way to be helpful! Our room was big, very clean and with a fantastic power shower. The location is great and a short walk (10 mins) into the centre of Ambleside.
