Park House Guest House
Ranked #60 of 102 Ambleside B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2012

This was our third stay at Park House made very welcome as usual by Paul & Diane.
Room lovely and spotlessly clean. Food great.Free car parking space included. Excellent stay as always. Would not hesitate to recommend this b&b to anybody else that is looking to stay in Ambleside. Good location for evening meals and the shops and this won't be our last stay at Park house.

I have very mixed feelings about this b&b. We were greeted by the lady owner, Dianne, she seemed very muddled, did not offer to help us with our bags. Her partner is however very attentive and makes you feel very welcome. The breakfast was OK, however not consistent, one day it came with black pudding the other it did not. We were sat next to another couple who were staying at the B&B and it was very uncomfortable as we were right next to them! The room was small but cosy however the shower was ridiculously small, and don't expect to feel clean whilst you are there because the water pressure is almost non existent.

I have also noticed that Dianne leaves rather rude comments when she doesn't get the reviews she thinks she should just because you have a silver award it doesn't make your b&b perfect and it certainly does not mean you are a welcoming hostess!

Was fairly clean in the b&b but the bathroom floor and sink were dirty. It seems a shame really that this lady cant accept anything less than a perfect review.

We have just recently spent 3 days at this friendly B&B. Our room was quiet, comfortable and as everyone else already wrote several times, very clean. The selection for breakfast was good but it would have been nice to have some sweeter options too such as croissant or brioche. However, this is just a personal preference, everything we had was delicious. It is worth mentioning that the building is situated right next to a one-way system road with double yellow lines and no private or public parking in the vicinity of the building. We would recommend to call the owners a few minutes before arrival so they can get the keys ready for the lock for the private parking place which is situated on the other side of the bowling green just a few minutes walk away from the B&B. It is actually very convenient not to have any car parking nearby as one cannot hear the slamming of the car doors at any time. We would certainly recommend this B&B if you would like to stay in Ambleside.

Room Tip: If you can, ask for room No1 (en-siutte with shower) as it is facing to the side of the building and...

Chose Park House largely due to the reviews on here; but think next time would choose to pay more for either hotel or self-catering. A B&B has to be pretty special - perhaps boutique! - to get a rave review from me. Positives of Park House are it is spotlessly clean, the hosts are friendly, and the young man who served at breakfast very pleasant and polite. Breakfast is ok (although a very narrow half hour window for it!). The bread could be better (home made even?!?) and I am never a fan of sauce sachets - use bottles, it looks nicer, is easier and better for the environment! Fresh grapefruit would be nicer than tinned, tables would be nicer with tablecloths on. Oh and the strawberry (?) plug in air freshener in the hallway was rather sickly smelling. The room (4) was tiny; closet doors did not close properly and the shower room was tiny; could barely turn around in there! Water pressure was non-existent, although the hosts did acknowledge this and offered a £10 discount on the stay to their credit. One last comment - the location on a corner of the main route into Ambleside meant it was rather noisy with traffic noise - not really an 'escape to the country'! Wouldn't stay again.

This is a lovely b&b that is right in the centre of Ambleside. The breakfast was delicious and suitable for all palates and appetites. The house was sparklingly clean throughout. The hosts were friendly and helpful without being "in your face." My single room was small but comfortable and well-appointed. I really recommend this guesthouse.
