“So welcoming”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A big thank you to Gwen & Reg for making our special weekend so lovely. With your warm hospitality, superb all round facilities, superb breakfast and general helpfulness it was perfect.
A great location to explore this part of the lakes, I don't think you could find a better b & b in Ambleside.
Highly recommended.
Dean & Rebecca.

We spent two nights at Ambosel lodge it is the second time and I can't speak highly enough about it. Gwen and Reg are the perfect host and the quality of everything is excellent. We will definitely be going back.

Amboseli Lodge is a great little B&B in a great location. Gwen and Reg are a friendly and outgoing couple and the quality of both the breakfast and the room are fantastic. We stayed in the Fairfield room: it had excellent views of the hills, was quiet, roomy, cozy and had probably one of the best beds we have ever slept in! Highly recommended!

We stayed at Amboseli Lodge for the Weekend we have visited here many times and we still absolutely love it. Gwen and Reg are so lovely the perfect hosts they treat us like part of the family. We r met by the lovely Gwen at the door lovely smile when she saw us and Reg also. Lovely cup of tea after our drive and the yummy chocolate biscuit. Our Room was on the front of the house Loughrigg was Clean, Spacious and Comfortable. En Suite Bathroom was also Clean and Spacious. Breakfast was Delicious I had my usual Bacon Sandwich, Cereal, Toast and Fruit Juice. There is a selection of Cereals, Fresh Fruit, Yoghurt and Fruit Juices to choose from. My husband had the Full Cooked Breakfast well done Reg. Amboseli is very close to the park (over the road) Restaurants and Pubs very close by. Thank you Gwen and Reg lovely to see you both see you in August.

We are regulars at this lovely B&B in Ambleside, but this is the first time we have stayed in early February. As usual everything was perfect, with Gwen and Reg greeting us like old friends. We were the only guests, as this was their first weekend of the year, and the weather was terrible - snow, rain, sleet and gales, but as usual the welcome was warm and nothing was too much trouble. At the risk of repeating ourselves the room was immaculately clean and breakfast was perfect. There were just a couple of extra touches which knowing Gwen and Reg shouldn't really be surprising but we feel they should be mentioned. A new innovation is a small 'library' of books from which you are welcome to take, replacing with one of your own. Also we came in on the afternoon of a particularly wet day absolutely soaking. Our hosts were there to take our coats and dry them, and Gwen brought us cups of hot chocolate to our room. We don't want to give the impression that they do this all the time (they do offer a drying service), as perhaps when they are full they would be too busy, but just wanted to say a big thank you for the care given free of charge over and above what you would normally expect.

Great location very conveniently situated All the best for 2014

Room Tip: We have been in all rooms and always spotless
