We were in room 3 - cosy and the bed was so comfy. Nice locally sourced toiletries and underfloor heating in the bathroom.
Breakfast was really good - so much to choose from. I'm veggie and they had lots of options including veggie sausages which was great. Christine was very attentive to any dietary requirements which was great.
The location is fab - walking distance to everywhere in the centre of Ambleside. We enjoyed sitting in the evening sun out the front of the Salutation Hotel, good Italian food at Tarantella and good Thai food at Jintana. The Lily had a great atmosphere as well as modern rustic decor. We didn't eat there but the food looked really nice and it was always packed. There was often live music too.
We took Teddy on a walk up Castle Cragg - fun! :)
Thank you for a lovely stay Christine!
