We were staying at The Quaysiders which is yards away from The Regent and were given a promotional flier for a steak night that included a bottle of wine for two people for a total cost of £27.
At this price you could be excused for thinking it would be a just OK evening but our experience was so very different.
From our initial contact when booking in person to us leaving the hotel the overall quality in every respect was faultless.
A warm, friendly greeting on arrival, our coats taken and hung a pre-dinner drink in a comfortable cosy lounge and lovely crisp linen on our table.
The service was excellent we both had a starter, the salmon being especially good, the steak was a generous portion and of very good quality, cooked to perfection and the presentation was delightful.
In addition the French red merlot wine included with the meal, there was a white chardonay alternative, was smooth and mellow and also of good quality.
After our meal we had coffee in the bar.
A really enjoyable dining experience, all for £41. Can you beat that? We think not and have booked to return this evening for dinner.

Had a couple of nights at the regent first time experiencing steak night, superb value for money. Quality of wine offered in the deal excellent. The steak nights are a Monday & Thursday well worth the money.

Room Tip: Try room 25good lake view

Just back from our first two night stay at The Regent. It was a great experience from start to finish with all the staff and management being professional and happy to chat.

Our room (Garden Room) was first class, very quiet and generously sized. No issues with wi-fi even though these rooms are a short walk from the main building.

The presentation of the hotel public rooms is exceptional, difficult to understand why it only has 3 stars - it deserves more.

Breakfast was amazing, best choice we have ever come across and piping hot and cooked to perfection. We ate in one night, enjoying the 'steak night' deal. Food quality was excellent and even the bottle of wine that came with the meal was of a very good standard.

We look forward to staying again and were not suprised to talk to so many returning guests - why go anywhere else in Ambleside!

Well done to everyone there.

Had a mid week break to celebrate my birthday with friends, the hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly, the rooms spotlessly clean and comfortable and the food was delicious, a very dog friendly hotel, I will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: All rooms good mine was a single big enough for two my friends were in the courtyard doggy room big enough for them and two dogs

We grabbed a 2 night weekday break bed and breakfast, we picked accommodation due to taking our wee dog.
Hotel welcome friendly on arrival.. We had room service as weather took nasty turn and we decided to chill here.. I ordered blade of beef which I have to say was nothing short of a disaster, tough chewy not at all braised for hours. One of worst cuts I've ever been served..
Second morning woke up at 730 and room next door being sanded! 730.... rang reception and they did go and make it stop however not a lay in that one expected.
This hotel has lots of older couples who seem to return.
I can only assume it's due to be familiar.
Sadly it's one I won't be coming back too.
Bed are comfortable, i would have enjoyed a lay in as that's what breaks are for!
Breakfast - states well known for a scrambled eggs... one of my favourites..lacked seasoning.
Famous for what? Return no!

Dear Chefshep, Thank you for your review. I can only apologise again for a series of errors during your over night stay. It appears that what could have happened did happen to you and these things sometime are beyond reason or explanation. We have already reimbursed you for dinner and our maintenance man will send you a voucher for your disturbance. Again I am deeply sorry. Andrew . The Regent Hotel
