Reviewed 21 November 2013

With only a 5min walk to Ambleside centre, the Lyndale guest house is perfecly placed for local amenities and a peaceful night.
The guest house has character and proprietor Alison has ensured a unique style to the rooms as we have stayed several times now and experienced different rooms.
If you book into Lyndale you will leave very satisfied.

Enjoyed my stay here yet again, can't recommend it enough to dog owners, Alison is full of tips on how to navigate Ambleside's bars and restaurants with a pooch in tow.

Family rooms are very spacious, and the breakfasts are pretty good too.

We stayed for 3 nights with 2 kids in the family room, which was very nice, not very big, but good enough. the hosts are very kind, breakfast is nice and quiet. with good english breakfast dishes. location is also very convenient, not in mid town, but 10 minute walk to the centre of everything, and 5 minute walk to the lake , boats etc.
parking is given to a 100m parking lot nearby but you can use your permit also for parking in 2 other central parking in the town center (Rydal road, and Lake road), as well as Windermere, and other towns which saves a lot of money (you cant park on the streets, but need to pay otherwise).
overall, lovely stay.

Room Tip: not suitable for people with disabilities (stairs) and walk with suitcases

Just spent two nights at this very nice guest house. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and made our short stay very enjoyable. We used this as a base as we were visiting Ambleside to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary and fancied doing a bit of fell walking. Would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1 which was adequate

Had a bad start to our stay at lyndale with hostess making a lot of fuss about us arriving late though she was Pre-informed. Then she made a whole scene in the night over our toddlers though the hotel website clearly allowed them free with the booking. Rooms were comfortable and the place is located close enough to the main lake area. Hostess made further scenes on any of our requests, overall she had a fairly bad attitude. She clearly is unsuitable for the hospitality profession. Wouldn't recommend this place.

A very nice place. The room was immaculate and the service was with a smile. We would definitely stay again! The breakfast was also good and the location is great. It's a 2-3 minute stroll to the lake and similar to the shops in Ambleside.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the top rooms with a nice view

This guest house is a real credit to Alison, the hard work and care she has put into it has made Lyndale a really lovely place to stay. We have just come back from a 2 night stay feeling absolutely relaxed and rejuvinated. The beds and pillows are wonderfully comfortable, our room was at the front but was still really quiet. The room temperature was perfect despite it snowing outside. Alisons fabulous full english breakfast would set even the hungriest person up for a full days walking. This isn't a modern minimalist hotel where the heart has been riped out, the decor is really lovely, Lyndale has a very homely feel and is only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside. We will definitely go back again.
