The Regent Hotel is well worth looking at for a stay in the central Lakes area at Ambleside. The hotel has recently been renovated and is to a high standard. The layout is interesting with a mixture of some rooms in the main building, some in an annexe across a small courtyard and the Garden Rooms separate from the main building. The staff and service were very good. The breakfast menu was excellent with a good choice of food, including a vegetarian option of the Full English cooked breakfast. Dinner in the restaurant was of good quality and reasonable price. There was a pleasant atmosphere to the bar area and free WiFi available in the lounge/ bar area. The midweek special offers are worth looking out for and my wife and I stayed for 4 nights in a Garden Room "Superior Room" with free parking away from the road immediately outside our room. This was a cosy and quiet location to the rear of the hotel. We really enjoyed the stay.
The location at Waterhead, in Ambleside is ideal for exploring the central Lakes area by car, simply walking from the hotel to some great low and intermediate walks on Loughrigg Fell, Wansdale Fell and to nearby Grasmere or enjoying a cruise down Lake Windermere on the steamers that dock less than 100 yards from the hotel. We can recommend both the hotel and the location.
