Our fourth stay with Peter and Ruth at the Ambleside, as per usual we were warmly welcomed and the room was faultless and the breakfast amazing. We can't recommend the Ambleside enough.....perfect. We will be returning again next year.

Stayed March 2014

My husband and I have just returned from a short break in Stratford where we stayed a couple of nights at this lovely guest house which is just a short walk from the centre of the town. On arrival we were welcomed warmly by the owner, Ruth, who showed us to our room. The room was exceptionally clean and well appointed and everything you could possibly need was provided, from the shower gel and face wipes in the en suite bathroom to the mints in the bedroom. As the evenings were quite cold, it was really nice to return to our lovely warm room, make a welcome cup of tea and settle down. Completing a form with your breakfast requirements the previous evening, ensures you get exactly what you want, cooked how you want it, which is great. The breakfasts are excellent and beautifully cooked by Peter. Ruth and Peter are excellent hosts and we would definitely recommend this Guest House and hope to return before too long.

Always a pleasure to stay with Peter and Ruth at this lovely Guest House in an ideal location for all there is to do in Stratford. Only a few minutes walk from everything. Impeccable, clean, comfortable, warm and welcoming, excellent breakfast with lots of choice, and always the helpful and courteous advice and tips from the owners to enhance your stay. I'll be back!

Ambleside Guest House is a charming place to stay very near the main parts of town. It is newly refurbished and everything is done with a lovely, graceful atmosphere. Ruth and Peter treated us very kindly, seeing to all our needs and giving advice when needed. The rooms are cozy and well-appointed and the dining room and breakfast a pleasant way to start the day. I wouldn't mind moving in for quite some time. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: I only saw our room on the top floor (second), but it was spacious for such guest houses and charmin...

I really can't fault this place - great location just five minutes' walk from the centre of Stratford, on a surprisingly quiet road, and with free off-street parking. Our room (7) was at the top of the house, and was comfortable, clean and quiet, with a very nice bathroom, and our English breakfast was freshly cooked and very tasty. Peter and Ruth, the proprietors, were very friendly, hospitable and knowledgable. I'd happily stay here again.

Three of us spent a delightful four days at the Ambleside. In spite of cold, wet, rainy weather, we had a lovely place to return to and friendly, helpful hosts in Peter and Ruth, who went out of their way to make us comfortable and give us advice and tips for our stay. Breakfast was outstanding, fresh and made to order. Highly recommended!

This is beyond far the most delightful B&B we have ever encountered. The hospitality of Peter and Ruth was truly excellent. Our room was very comfortable, clean and warm and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. The B&B is within easy reach of the town centre and of all the Shakespeare Homes. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future. Thank you for such a pleasant few days.
