“Deleightful B&B”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We stayed at Claremont House for 2 nights, for a couple of days walking in the hills. It had been recommended to us by friends.

We found it to have: modern bathrooms, lovely bright rooms and to be spotlessly clean throughout, It was also quiet and central to town.

The owners (Dave and Angela) were really friendly, helpful and shared their considerable local knowledge.

Strongly recommended.

We stayed two nights at Claremont House Guest House after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The house is well positioned in Ambleside, close to a multitude of shops and restaurants as well as some lovely pubs. Parking outside wasn't a problem for us and, although we couldn't get right outside on our second night, we were only a short walk away. Parking requires a disc permit which our host Dave was keen to give us to avoid any problems.
The guest house is lovely and cosy. From the minute you walk in the door you get the warm welcome from Dave and Angie and the warmth from the central heating.
We stayed in Room 3 which was nicely decorated in an orange theme. Nice art work on the wall behind the bed and mirrors a-plenty. The double bed was dressed with crisp white linen. Furniture in the room consisted of a pine chest of drawers, two bedside lockers and a comfy chair. There was also a fitted wardrobe. A kettle and a good supply of tea and coffee was also in the room....as well as some nice biscuits too!
There is a small en-suite bathroom with a lovely shower as well as a sink and toilet. The bathroom is small but beautifully clean and modern - it has a gorgeous mirror on the wall with LED lights around the edge, operated by infra-red - I want one of these for our house!
Breakfast is served between 8.30 and 9.30 and is SO worth getting up for. There is a great selection of cereals, fruit juice, grapefruit etc. This is followed by a delicious cooked breakfast. Beautiful, locally sourced, produce - bacon, sausage, mushrooms, egg, black pudding, beans, toast....absolutely gorgeous and a great way to start the day.
Angie and Dave are there to advise of local restaurants, walks, ....just about anything in the area really. Very knowledgeable and keen to help.
The Claremont is a gem - we will be back very soon and will be spreading the word amongst our friends - the place to stay in Ambleside.

My husband and I have just spent valentines weekend at Claremont House and loved every minute of it. Owners Dave and Angie are wonderful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us to make our stay thoroughly enjoyable.
Leading up to our and during our stay they were really helpful answering some questions via email and giving us lots of useful recommendations and information. Thank you!!!!!!
Breakfasts were superb and the room was lovely, bright and spotlessly clean. The location is great too as Ambleside is right on your doorstep.
I would highly recommend this Guest house to anyone travelling to Ambleside and we will defiantly be heading back soon!!!

We stayed for 1 night between Christmas and New Year. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfy. We had room 3 at the back overlooking the school . We managed to park on the street with a disc and we were asked by their daughter who greeted us if we had one. She told us about the parking in the school playground which we also used earlier on in the day. The breakfast was lovely and very filling for the day ahead. If in Ambleside again we would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Room 3 is very quiet as it is at the back of the house

We were en-route to Scotland and needed a nice, not-too-expensive B&B for a one-night stop-over to break up the journey. We picked this B&B after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and as usual they were right. Its a lovely B&B with friendly and helpful hosts.

Great location in the centre of Ambleside - no issues with parking as some have mentioned. Our was very clean with plenty of space and included an en-suite shower room with toilet (and no musty/damp smell that you sometimes get with these).

Would definitely recommend and will stay in the future if/when we return with the kids (there were family rooms available although we didn't view them).
