Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 February 2009

We have just got back from a three night break. This was our second visit.

We picked room 9 again because of the view of the hills covered in snow, just where

we like it. Laura and Anna who served and cooked breakfast respectivly, are such nice girls as are their parents they make you so welcome. We really like the large car park.
Also the lovely lounge to relax in. Also it is only a few minutes walk into the town.

Hotel in great location with plenty of off road parking. Our room (16) was very big with a king sized sleigh bed and a single one too. Facilities within the room were fantastic-Flat screen TV with DVD player, facilities to make hot drinks, bottled water on arrival and plenty of storage and floor space- even enough room for our dog's bed! Bathroom small but with great facilities including a jaccuzzi bath, shower and complimentary toiletries.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. They even provided us with plates and cutlery for our take-away, after arriving late on Friday night! Food standards were high and service with a smile( fresh fruit salad, grapefruit, prunes etc... yoghurts and cereals followed by toast and cooked breakfast or several alternatives including veggie).

The family will even serve snacks and sandwiches between 2-5pm and drinks in the evening- wine, champagne, beer and selected spirits, up until 8.30pm. The residents lounge is large, comfortable and has a real fire- which was lovely on a cold afternoon.

Would highly recommend staying here and will definitely return in the future.

We stayed at the Rothay-Garth Hotel four nights in October, 2008. We had their "luxury" room, #5. The family who own and operate the place are so kind and attentive that you feel right at home immediately.
The luxury room we had was very comfortable and quiet, with an excellent bed and nice bathroom. It was not quite as large as I had expected, but that was a very minor inconvenience. Breakfast was good and served to order between 8 and 9:15 in an attractive dining room. The hotel is within easy walking distance of everything in Ambleside. The hosts gave us good recommendations for restaurants each night that we were there.
Ambleside is a town devoted to tourism. Nearly every building is a hotel/B&B/guest house or restaurant/cafe/pub. There are several accommodations named Rothay-thisorthat, so be alert if you want the Rothay-Garth Hotel.
The hotel has private parking and a warm, friendly public sitting room.
We very much enjoyed our stay there and would certainly return again if in the Lakes District. I was particularly pleased with the attention to details to make everything comfortable and attractive.
