Stayed here for one night and found it to be as good as all the reviews said. Perfect hosts, super clean rooms and lots of hot water in a good size shower. Tea tray great and a quiet room.
The owner got us a car parking space at the back FOC and were very helpful.
Right in the centre of this Lake district tourist town. The dining room is spotless and a quality breakfast is served piping hot with lots of toast and good coffee.
This is a period property with lots of character and we loved our stay. Will stay here when we again visit Ambleside.

Room Tip: Room 6 is to the front and side. We had a little traffic noise and someone walking back from pub abo...

We enjoyed a lovely stay at this very friendly and spotlessly clean B&B. Good breakfast with veggie option. We had 6" of snow outside during our stay, so having Plenty of hot water and a very warm room to return to was great. A short walk away from places to eat and the cinema which is perfect after a long walk in the day.

The B & B was located ideally for everything we needed, the room was lovely and clean and the owners was very pleasant, we had a really enjoyable stay. Although the room was small, it was spotless and had a modern en suite bathroom.
The only negatives were (a) there was no milk for tea/coffee (very minor I know) and (b) every time we used the toilet I am sure we woke the other guests, as it was very loud when flushed.
Breakfast was very good and the service was excellent.
I would recommend this B & B for a short break to anyone.

Stayed here overnight on way home from Scotland. Good size bedroom, bathroom perhaps a little small but adequate, all lovely and clean.

Warm & pleasant welcome. Breakfasts very good and plenty of food.

All in all a good choice and would stay again

Room Tip: Our room was at the front, possibly No 4 and was quiet even though had windows wide open at night

We stayed at this B & B overnight to tour the Lakes area. It was in a perfect location to walk around the village, close to everything you would want to see. The bedroom was not large, but very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The bedroom was on the 4th floor, but the owner helped bring our bags to our room. The English breakfast was very good and plenty of everything. It was served in a very pleasing dining area. The owners, Sue & Ray Savage, were very pleasant, talking with them was an enjoyable experience. We were sorry we could stay such a short time. We do recommend it to otheres.

Room Tip: If stair climbing is a problem be sure to discuss what floor the room will be on.
