Amboseli Lodge
Ranked #1 of 102 Ambleside B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We stayed at Amboseli Lodge for two nights late July. We had stayed there on two other occasions and decided to take the three rooms for a family reunion. Gwen and Reg are so friendly, they are more like family to us. We were met by Gwen greeting us with her happy smile, followed by a cup of Tea and Biscuit for the six of us. All Rooms were presented in spotless condition each with En Suite which were clean and bright with bath and shower. Rooms are all spacious and comfortable just perfect in every way with a Tea and Coffee tray. The Breakfast Room is lovely and airy where you can sit and enjoy the view of parkland opposite as you have your breakfast. Breakfast included a good array of cereals, fresh fruit and juices, yogurt and of course the typical English Breakfast.

Highly recommended for a wonderful stay, close to all the Lake attractions and local Ambleside restaurants.

We were met by the lovely Gwen hugging us like she normally does, cup of Tea and Biscuit was well appreciated after our journey. Our Room was Loughrigg was on the front of the house, lovely view of Loughrigg and the park, Our Room was Clean, Spacious and Comfortable just perfect in every way, Tea and Coffee tray, and En Suite which was Clean and Bright, bath and shower. The Breakfast Room is lovely and airy were you can sit and watch the world go by as you have your breakfast also lovely views. A wide selection of Cereals, Fresh Fruit, Yoghurt, Fruit Juices. My Husband had the Full English, Toast, Tea. I had a Bacon Sandwich, Cereal, and Toast. Amboseli is very central to the Centre where you will find Pubs Shops and Restaurants. The Park is right over the Road also. Bus Stop is just round the corner to. Can highly Recommend Amboseli Lodge. Thank you Reg and Gwen for a lovely Weekend see you both soon.

We recently spent three nights in this very comfortable B&B in a great location in a delightful town. Hosts Gwen and Reg could not be more accommodating and enjoyable to be around. The room was spotless, and their garden really a great place to relax after a day of exploring the beautiful Lake District.

Room Tip: The two rooms at the front of the B&B get a lot of afternoon sun which can make the room too war...

After 2 weeks of 4* B&B's which varied in standard and quality, we arrived at Amboseli Lodge with no great expectations. How wrong we were. Greeted by Gwen with a lovely cup of tea we were shown to our rooms which were spotless, modern and above all homely. Nothing had been spared to ensure guests comfort. Parking problems in Ambleside earlier in the day were quickly resolved and Gwen and Reg could not have been better or more helpful hosts. The breakfasts were to die for (especially the fruit salad).
There was nothing we would have wished to improve upon and we will certainly be back.

Great welcome from gwen and reg who could not have made us feel more at home, with lovely cup of tea on arrival. Room spotless, inviting, attractive. Decor bang up to date, really nice and well thought out. Some really nice touches like the magic mirror in the bathroom which came on via sensor and de misted for shaving. Wicked! Bath room up to date, clean, spotless. Even though room was at front on road, with double glazing was very quiet. Parking great. Access to town was spot on and to all the lovely walks close by. Breakfast was perfect, reg is great with eggs and rest of ingredients top quality and excellently cooked. Best peter and georgie x

We have stayed at the Amboseli Lodge on numerous occasions, and would not go anywhere else. Both Gwen & Reg make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive. All the bedrooms are absolutely spotless, and the breakfasts are first class too..... Truly a home from home...
