After a trying a few others on our frequent visits up to this part of Lakes, Smallwood is now our B&B of choice. Comfortable well presented and clean rooms, a warm welcome and what's more a car park right in the centre of Ambleside. The breakfasts are great, and although they might start a little late if you need to be out the door early, just ask and they will make sure the cold options are available. They even helped us out when we'd been let down by another establishment in a different part of the Lakes and needed some last minute accomodation on a busy weekend. And finally, keep this bit to yourself, passes to the Salutation Hotel's Spa, Gym and Pool; which is the best part of that hotel and for less money than staying there...what's not to like! The prices are bang on par for Ambleside, but what you're garanteed is somewhere that earns the price with service rather than just exploiting their location.
