Amboseli Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 March 2011

When we booked our weekend in the Lakes we didn't even consider looking at any other accommodation as we stayed here for a week last year and found it the best B & B we have stayed in. Our opinion has not changed. The location is ideal in the centre of Ambleside with a lovely view over the park and fells. Our room was immaculate and extremely comfortable with a full size en suite bathroom. Gwen and Reg are lovely hosts and make you feel so welcome. Thank you both for a lovely weekend.

3rd time we have stopped this year since finding this bed and breakfast. Hotel is spotlessly clean, hosts are very friendly, beds are comfortable, breakfasts are excellent, wet walking boots dried overnight. What more do you need? Highly recommended.

You are welcomed so warmly and given tea and coffee brought to your room. The breakfast menu is excellent with plenty to choose from. The rooms are warm and cosy and the beds are heavenly All the rooms have everything one could need.
The location is excellent for walking into the town with plenty of excellent pubs and restaurants and shops. It also has an excellent bus service if you want to leave your car in their private parking area.
I'm just looking forward to my next visit to Amboseli Lodge.

As usual our stay here was brilliant. Been going here for the past 8 years and wont stay anywhere else in the lake district.The room are all fantastic and very clean(have stayed in all of then) .
Gwen and Reg are very welcoming and always have a cup of tea ready for our arrival There is a good car park at the back of the guest house.
The breakfast is to die for, very good choice and plenty of it.
The location is ideal for both walking and travelling round the lake district.
The veiws from the bedrooms are beautifull and when we were there in December the tops were covered in snow and we even watched a deer from out room.
There is nothing to dislike about this B&B and Gwen and Reg are the best
Will be back next year

Before we arrived we had both e mail and phone messages about the arrangements for arrival.
On arrival the room was spotless, left on the bed was a choice of breakfast options to fill out. There was plenty of choice.
The location was close to all the amenities, there was also parking at the rear of the guest house.
The attention to detail and frendliness of the proprioters was excellent.
Breakfast was also excellent.
There was nothing about our stay we dissliked.

This was our first visit to Amboseli Lodge and it certainly won't be our last. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Our room (Fairfield) was really lovely, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast made with locally sourced produce was delicious with lots of choice and a lovely bowl of fresh fruit. Gwen and Reg are a lovely couple, very friendly and helpful and we hope to see them again soon.
Thank you both very much for a wonderful stay.
