Ambleside Guest House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2012

We enjoyed our stay at Ambleside. As others have said the rooms are clean, comfortable and cozy. As for parking, we had rented an Audi that needed a bit more room than the slot allotted for us. Peter allowed us to park in front of his car which gave us the room we needed. We enjoyed our breakfasts immensely. And, the location is wonderful for walking about the city. Peter and Ruth gave us good suggestions on places to see and things to do, particularly important as we did not have the best weather.

Stayed: May 2012, travelled as a couple

Friendly, clean, helpful and a superb breakfast to boot! Would thoroughly recommend the Ambleside to anyone wishing to stay in the area.

Extremely clean and comfortable, well-equipped rooms, good breakfast, b and b run with military-style precision.
However the inflexible approach of the hosts detracted from what should have been an enjoyable and relaxing weekend
The host was overzealous to the point of rudeness about the parking arrangements.
The latest time for breakfast is 8.45, but because other guests had requested this time, a curt note was left out in the hall, stating, "No more orders for 8.45"
Had the hosts been more flexible they might have realised that people might prefer a slightly later time for breakfast, especially on a Sunday and tried to accommodate their guests' wishes better.
Unfortunately one of our party suffered a bereavement and had to leave suddenly, one night earlier than she had planned. While we understood it would not have been possible to relet her room at such short notice, a small refund to reflect her not requiring breakfast would have been reasonable and a gesture of good will. We were told in no uncertain terms there would be no reduction.
It was disappointing that such pristine accommodation was not matched by the same standard of customer care.
Also, beware of the cancellation policy which requires two weeks' notice.

Having discovered the Ambleside two years ago after bad experiences elsewhere, I can only say that there cannot be a better guest house than this. Rooms beautiful and spotlessly clean, great attention paid to detail and owners Peter and Ruth are the most wonderful hosts. Their sole aim appears to make all guests feel welcome and important. The breakfast served is excellent and the location and car parking facilities are much appreciated as I have a mobility problem. Whilst I want to praise this B&B as it deserves I would be very upset if its popularity made it difficult for me to return...selfish yes, but when you discover a gem you want to keep it to yourself !!!!I

Very comfortable and spotlessly clean B&B. Excellent breakfast, although having to order it the night before gave me a little pause for thought. It's the small touches that move it from good to great (eg make up wipes available in the bathroom). Very conveniently placed for the station and town centre and quiet too despite being on a fairly busy road. The owners went out of their way to help, even going up to our room to check when my friend thought she had lost her purse and phoned them (and yes it was there).

Room Tip: Top floor room was particularly spacious and quiet being on the back of the house.

This is a great B&B with the most friendly and helpful owners you could wish for. The Ambleside Guest House is spotlessly clean and located just a few minutes walk from the centre of town. I highly recommend this place and will (hopefully) be staying there again the next time I'm in Stratford.

We were staying in Stratfrord Upon Avon for the half Marathon and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The location was very central, giving us easy access to all the key attractions and close to rail station. Peter and Ruth go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be, providing immaculate rooms and a wonderful breakfast made to your specific requests (Best scrambled egg on toast ever!). Would recommend to anyone for a wonderful stay in Stratford! Will be staying again in the near future. Many thanks Amie and Rebecca
