We stayed at the Rothay Manor for the first time. We have passed it many times on visits to the Lakes over many years.
We received a really friendly welcome and were shown to our room (room 1) which was fabulous. Huge, beautifully designed and decorated, immaculately clean with all the things you would need. Our room overlooked the garden and was extremely quiet at night. The one and only fault we can mention was that the shower wasnt very powerful. Only a minor complaint.
The bar and lounge areas are lovely and comfortable and again beautifully designed. Nice areas to relax in before and after your meal in the evening. The food was delicious with a lovely choice of dishes. The quality and quantity excellent. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient. Breakfast was excellent too.
The Hotel is in a nice position. A relatively short walk along the river and through a park leads into Ambleside centre. Or an even shorter walk via the main road. You are only a short drive away from Elterwater and the Langdales. Ambleside is an ideal place to stay for visiting many parts of the Lakes. Grasmere, Windermere, Coniston, Hawkshead. Keswick, and our favourite Buttermere are a little further. Fantastic scenery.
It was nice to see people staying here of different aged groups. The Hotel also feels quite spacious and the dining areas and lounge areas are extremely comfortable. Our last stay at a Hotel in the Lakes was so warm it spoilt our stay.
We really enjoyed our weekend break and can't wait to return.
