“A Must Stay Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2008

From Robert Iley
By far one of the most friendliest B&Bs I have stayed at at the Lake district. The people who run the hotel are very helpful and seem very knowledgeable about the area. George is a keen walker and knows the area well. So if you want to walk a great distance or just a small amble he will be able to help and they can supply you with maps if needed. The hotel is very clean and the rooms decor looks new.The breakfast is excellent and very filling. They can also tell you where you can go for the best meals in the village. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you can come and go as you please. We always go to this B&B now because George and Ann are very friendly people and make you so welcome, I would definitely recommend this hotel to other holiday makers and serious fell walkers.

You'll receive a warm welcome from friendly hosts George and Ann. The rooms are beautifully decorated, impeccably clean and well stocked with goodies for refuelling after a long day out walking. Top marks for scrumptious breakfasts served with smiles and morning cheer, creating a really warm and relaxed atmosphere. Hillsdale is perfectly situated for restaurants, pubs and shops in Ambleside, but also as an ideal base for longer walks around the lakes as there is free parking for guests! An absolute bonus has to be the free health club passes, what better way to ease those aching muscles after hill climbing, than a soak in a jacuzzi or an outdoor hot tub (!!! quite an experience in winter).

Come to Hillsdale for a relaxing get away, a homely and warm atmosphere, eat good food, meet great people and soak up the delights of the Lake District....what more can i say its perfect which is why we keep going back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
This charming Visit Britain 4*Bed and Breakfast property, with free off-road parking for each room, is conveniently situated in Ambleside town centre in the very heart of the English Lake District, Wainwright's Walking Country. The beautiful waters of Windermere, Rydal and Grasmere are within easy walking distance as are the historic homes of Wordsworth, Ruskin and Beatrix Potter. Each room has been individually styled - as the B&B has been created from an original Lakeland Stone townhouse, so typical of Ambleside, no room is the same shape or size, but we hope that each one is as comfortable, attractive and pleasing as the next! All rooms have either a double or king sized bed, newly refurbished en-suite shower room and flat screen TV. Hospitality trays, hairdryers, wine glasses and corkscrew come as standard. Free wi-fi is available. Prices include a selection of breakfast choices. ... more   less
