Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at Norwood House over the New Year period. Ideal location, lovely room (room 7), free parking, quality breakfast, great value and lovely host. We have stayed at many Ambleside Hotels and B&B’s over the years and this is right up there with the best. We hope to return there very soon.

My sister and I traveled to ambelside for our yearly trip. We chose Norwood house as it had parking. The owners were lovely and knew the area so well so we got a little less lost when on our walks. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and plenty to keep you going till lunchtime, they had good options for vegetarian (my sister and I are veggies). The room was lovely and the place was easy access to everywhere. I heartily recommend it we had a lovely time. Thank you Norwood House for looking after us.

We have just returned from a short break at Norwood House one of the best B&B,s we have stayed in. We stayed in room 7 which is light and spacious with a large bathroom, comfy beds and pillows. It's on the top floor so maybe not for anyone with mobility issues but fine for us. Breakfast is good and the service excellent. The owners are so welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Parking is a 2 minute walk away.

We absolutely loved our stay here. The room was spacious, clean and comfy. Although there was no breakfast available during our stay (we knew this when booking) there was a lovely café just a minute walk away which did great food. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful 😊👌 I stayed three nights under the fabulously warm and friendly hosting of Keith and Wendy. A few days getaway, studying, running and hiking amongst the Lakeland beauty, leaving and returning daily to the snug, comfy bedroom, wonderfully prepared by Howie, with Keith's scrumptious breakfasts and Wendy's beautifully warm and informative hosting throughout. Simply the Best and an absolute must for anyone who wants to truly enjoy the Lakeland walks and hospitality at its best 😊❤👌🍻

I stayed here on my recent trip to the lakes. The B&B is in great location of Ambleside very short walk from the buses and the local town. I was made to feel very welcome. Breakfast was excellent had very wide choice for cereal breakfast was made fresh we great quality products. They where happy you have any style of cooked breakfast with extra top ups of tea and toast I was happy with what I had. Breakfast from 830 till 9 which is great as not up really early but early enough for good breakfast so can enjoy whole day exploring. The owners so very friendly and welcoming. My room was lovely had my own sink and toilet did share shower though. Bed was comfortable and sheets where very clean. Will definitely recommend to stay here when in Ambleside.

Lovely warm and welcoming accommodation. Well kept and clean, hosts are extremely friendly and helpful, from always making the time to say hello, remembering what you have for breakfast and giving suggestions on things to do. Location is great for things to do in Ambleside and a short walk to Lake Windermere.
