“Midweek break”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

We have just returned home from a midweek break in Ambleside. We have stayed at this B&B before and returned as the last visit was so good. Gwen and Reg are so helpful and friendly, the accommodation is immaculate and breakfast was excellent. Reg was very knowledgable about walking and gave good advice. Each time we visit we are never let down.

We have just returned from 5 enjoyable days in Ambleside staying at Amboseli Lodge. We received a very warm welcome from Reg and Gwen and were delighted with our room, tastefully and newly decorated to a very high standard and spotless in all areas. Plus large very soft and fluffy towels. Breakfast was delicious each day including fresh fruit salad and a wide choice of dishes. Gwen and Reg were both there to say goodbye. Perfect hosts.

From the moment we were greeted at the door by our hosts Reg and Gwen with a welcoming cup of tea and biscuits, we felt totally at home. Our modern double en-suite room was comfortable, equipped with everything you could need, and was immaculate. The full English breakfasts cooked by Reg and served by Gwen (together with the occasional song) were superb and set us up for the day! Nothing was too much trouble, they even dried and aired our wet anoraks! The Amboseli Lodge is situated in a lovely location close to the centre of Ambleside and all it has to offer, and it makes an ideal base for any stay in the Lakes. The convenient and free parking was a bonus. We have found a real gem and will definitely return for our future stays in the Lakes.

We have just returned from a weekend in Ambleside and stayed in this B and B. It was lovely, very clean and the owners really friendly. Two minutes from the centre of Ambleside and free parking. Breakfast was very nice too.

This is a great B&B in picturesque Ambelside on Lake Windermere. Right in the town centre and 10 minutes walk from the Lake and ferry terminal. Our visit was short but this town is gorgeous with it's slate buildings and surrounding natural beauty. Friendly and informative staff and comfy room with great breakfast.

Reviewed 29 September 2013

Just arrived home after an absolutely amazing weekend in the stunning lake district.
The weekend started perfectly when we arrived at Amboseli and were greeted by Gwens ever smiling face.
We arrived slightly early (about 10.30AM) after a very good drive from Lincoln and our room was not quite ready (Which was not a problem to us as we didn't expect to be at that time) but that didn't stop Gwen and Reg making us feel very welcome, showing us our room and offering us a cuppa.
We left the car in the free parking spaces provided at the rear of the property and went off for a walk round town.
When we returned, we found the room to be absolutely immaculate, tea and coffee in the room and a bathroom with shower AND bath!!!!...Why don't all B&B's do this? There is nothing better after a long walk than a nice relaxing bath.
Breakfast was extensive and lovely and they were happy to provide as much as you wanted.
I don't think we could have found a fault with the room, breakfast or the hosts if we spent a month there!!
Reg and Gwen are a lovely happy couple who will ensure that all their guests are made to feel welcome and well looked after.
Thank you both very much.
Hope to see both again in the future
