    The staff were all extremely friendly ,helpful, knowledgeable and attentive, always ready to help or advise. The hotel is in a lovely location just across the road from the lake , about a 15 min walk to Ambleside town shops & 5 mins to a large garden centre. The ferry to Bowness was just across the road. The hotel was very clean & warm. Would definitely stay there again

    Relaxing atmosphere. We found the staff friendly and willing to help with any problems. We were all made comfortable even the dog.i

    I would have preferred a separate shower . There were a lot of steps
