This is the 3rd year that I have stayed at Amboseli Lodge and I have booked again for next year. What better recommendation could you have.
Every room is a delight and absolutely immaculate. The breakfasts really set you up for the day and Reg and Gwen give you such a warm welcome. Everything that you could possibly want to make your stay perfect in this most beautiful part of the world.

Had a lovely stay here for three nights, just after Easter. Good room, lovely breakfast and Gwen and Reg took great care of us. The location is convenient for the centre of Ambleside, and there are some good walks practically from the doorstep. Really couldn't have been happier, and would thoroughly recommend Amboseli Lodge.

Have just had a short break in Ambleside and chose to stay at this bed and breakfast. I must stress that the accommodation is super clean, very comfortable with all one could wish for. Gwen and Reg are both very friendly and make you feel most welcome. As mentioned in other reviews, nothing is too much trouble and they really try to make the experience a very enjoyable one. I would not hesitate to recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone. Will definitely stay again. Also ideally situated in the middle of the village. The Collett family.

As a regular business traveller I can honestly say the accommodation and hospitality Reg & Gwen provide is second to none. A very warm welcome, an immaculate comfortable bedroom, spotless bathroom with plenty of towels and hot water and a breakfast to sustain you in the hills all day. My first stay at Amboseli, definitely not my last!!

We had a really great stay in a super B&B with the Gwen and Reg Show to keep us entertained.
With my poorly knee,Gwen and Reg kept my cold compresses coming out of their freezer.
Ambosili Lodge is perfect,one of the best we have stayed in.
The area is beautiful and we were able to use the local bus service to visit Bowness and Coniston(on a day pass,great value) as my walking ability was restricted.
We will be back!

Room Tip: Wansfell nice and peaceful

We have been staying at Amboseli Lodge for many years and the experience has never been less than perfect. Reg & Gwen are fantastic hosts - friendly, very welcoming, nothing too much trouble especially after a day on the hills - gear dried and aired if weather inclement. Breakfasts are hearty, freshly prepared and lots of choice depending on your requirements. Rooms are fabulous and always warm, fresh, clean, well stocked with toiletries etc and regularly upgraded and decorated. And their location is ideal to park your car, relax, explore the locality and never touch it again until you need to drive home.
100% in every respect in my opinion..........cannot be faulted.

........... because everything about it is just so perfect! Beautifully appointed, lovely rooms, great breakfasts, and the best B&B hosts (Gwen and Reg) we've ever encountered in our many years of visiting here and there - and, believe me, few of our travel experiences have been as good as this one.

It's all been said, really, and we're just adding some more icing to the cake. A great place, well positioned for Ambleside's many bars and restaurants, and, of course, lovely walking too. Unfortunately, the weather during our stay (20-24 February 2012) was utterly dire - but it made coming back to Amboseli Lodge after traipsing around in the rain all day all the more fabulous!

Well done, Gwen and Reg - keep up the excellent work.

Bob and Yvonne.

Room Tip: We had "Wansfell", a lovely room whcih looks out onto the beautiful garden. Very quiet, no...
