“Lovely and friendly”
Reviewed 3 March 2014 via mobile

My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night stay in this lovely b&b. This was our first trip to the lakes and we will definitely be back! Our room was very clean (a little on the small side, room 2) but we didn't mind. The breakfasts were lovely served 8.30 - 9.30 and you can choose virtually anything! Chris and Jane the owners were very friendly and Julie was great too. I would definitely recommend this b&b if you are looking for a nice break in Ambleside close to all amenities. Fab!

I checked the Brantfell out on Tripadvisor before we booked and the positive reviews sold it to me....its located in a great place within walking distance of everything you would need...and as it says it is dog friendly....but if you didnt have dogs then thats great to....Jane and Chris were wonderful hosts....whatever you needed they would get for you...they are so welcoming and warm people and at breakfast you could have whatever and as much as you wanted...from localy sourced food for the full english...fresh fruit...kippers or eggs benedict...We had a great time the rooms are spotless and modern.....will definitely be staying there again...Thanks..x

2 great nights at the Brantfell. Stayed in room No1 which is quiet small but very comfortable with everything we needed and very clean. Breakfast is amazing and nothing is to much trouble for the owners who are very friendly. We've stayed in other hotels in Ambleside but this is the best so far.

We had room 3 which was spacious, clean and had a fantastic view over the park to the fells beyond. Having 3 windows to view the Scenery from the room was unusual but a major asset to the general feel about the place.
Nothing was too much bother for the hosts who seemed to be most organised and helpful. Breakfasts were served in a lovely relaxing environment, again with open views over to the fells. Tasty Cumbrian Fayre was on offer all sourced locally and all tasting lovely.
An honesty bar and a guest living room was situated at the rear of the breakfasting room adding to the good amenities on offer.
All in all a great b and b.

My husband, sister and her partner recently stayed here between Christmas and new year. Everything was great, the room was clean, warm and comfortable. We stayed in room 2 and my sister stayed in room 3 which was the superior room with a view. We liked it so much that we've booked again....in room 3 :-)
The breakfasts were so nice, fresh fruit and muesli, yogurt, fresh bread, then cooked breakfast of your choice.
The owners are really lovely, and genuinely friendly, so is Julie, always smiley and friendly.
Looking forward to going back there!

Immediately on arrival you are made to feel welcome. Comfortable rooms, ideally situated in the town and a breakfast to die for. What more do you want, because I suspect Chris and Jane would try their very best to provide it, if they don't already?

Room Tip: I think there are only six rooms, all are comfortable but the two at the front, 3 & 6 are much b...

On arrival all Eight of us were made to feel like part of a family.
Fantastic rooms, Wonderful staff, Great honesty bar, Breakfast like no other ever. you can have any amount of any item cooked as you require and I dare say if it was not on the menu but in their own fridge you could have it.
Marvelous position in Ambleside with Parking.
We will be back. Thank You.
