Guest reviews for Ambleside Lake House

4 out of 5
The top floor room had a lovely view of the lake and was pleasant and comfortable. The location was excellent for access to the lake, about a mile to Ambleside town. There wasn't a lounge, just the bedroom and the breakfast room. Breakfast was OK. It was very expensive for what is just a normal B&B albeit a nice clean one. The staff were fine, but they all seemed like students/itinerant people employed as a casual job, there was no sense of being welcomed by a family or dedicated team, it was somewhat impersonal in that regard.

Very pleasant experience. Comfortable room. Excellent breakfast. The only negative was the room was dark, even with all the lights on.
