Reviewed 15 October 2012

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights earlier in the year and were very impressed. the location is central Ambleside yet the noise of the town is unknown and we stayed in one of the outer lodges which was quite good. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was large too.
Breakfast was a wide range of cooked or cold foods and very filling!
After our walks/shopping we were in the pool and gym area and loved the outdoor heated hot tub especially as it was freezing cold in March and raining it still felt nice once in it!! the sauna and steam room was a fabulous cleanser for the two days.
The bar area on the evening was very chilled with a fire place (if i remember correctly) and prices were decent.
I would definitely recommend here as the staff were friendly, rooms were clean and the facilities were fabulous in a perfect location. I would return here for a special occasion.

Room Tip: Try and get a outer lodge at the back of the hotel!!

One year since my last visit to the "Sally" and my previous review.
The hotel is as ever, comfortable, welcoming & professionally run.
A big change has been the addition of two new lounges with the Bar area refurnished,making relaxing even more so.
A new entrance has been created enabling residents staying in the lodges to gain quick access to the main Hotel, no more long walks in the rain!
Can only continue to recommend this fine establishment!

Room Tip: The rooms facing over Ambleside with a view of Loughrigg are the best!

Stayed here for 2 nights B&B in one of the double lodge rooms, the room was very nice and comfortable and well furnished.Unfortunately we forgot our swimming gear otherwise we would have taken advantage of the excellent swimming pool.The bar and lounge area was a lovely for having a drink or relaxing with a good book.The breakfast was first class with everything on offer you could ever wish for and cooked to perfection.

Room Tip: As we have only stayed in one of the lodge rooms cannot comment on the rooms in the Hotel itself but...

We stayed at the end of September for my wifes birthday & had a superb time. The hotel is centrally located & all the lakes are just a short drive.
Our room was superb, and clean with a stunning bathroom!
Super pool & leisure facilities(Check out the outdoor hot tub) as is the adjoining spa.
The food is mainly locally sourced and is excellent, it is very easy to see why the breakfast in particular has won awards.
The staff are very attentive & helpful & cannot do enough for you.
We cannot wait to return.

Great Staff, lovely rooms and good breakfasts. Perhaps not the most picturesque views but we chose the location for central Ambleside over being in the middle of nowhere and cannot fault a thing. Well Done

My family and I were put up here after I completed the 24 Peak Challenge in June.

We were given a fantastic family room, which was huge and more than adequately accommodated a 2 year old (travel cot) , 5 year old and two weary parents.

There was no fuss when turning up caked in many miles worth of mud and other lake district lovelies, but rather a warm welcome given.

Breakfast was good, with the nippers well catered for and even given colouring pencils and activities by the staff to make the parents breakfast more enjoyable still.

Would love to stay here as a family again.
