location great to both Ambleside and lake

Posted Jun 14, 2016
Pros: location and breakfast
Cons: room cleanliness and house keeping.
Location: shopping at ambleside and lake and ferry is only 10 mins walk away. cycling in this area is wonderful, the hard knott pass is only a few miles away.
location was great to both Ambleside and lake Windermere hotel main building is clean impressive and has lots of character, our only issue was the room (Loughrigg) it wasnt cleaned prior to us staying, the bed linen was left from the previous stay. Very disappointing but once hotel were told about this they did remedy it quickly. Breakfast was of the highest class highly recommended. we would go and stay here again as the location is great.

Total comfort in a large, warm, room

Posted Nov 8, 2015
I had just driven for 3 hrs with my Dad, and needed a break - the staff were so welcoming and accommodating, asking if there was anything else I would like. The room was huge, nice view, and felt like a place I could cuddle up in and unwind - loads of cushions and big pillows on the bed, two armchairs; tea coffee, hot chocolate, a bottle of water and good biscuits all ready to enjoy - and at the end of my short corridor was a small lounge with all the latest magazines to borrow. So, rested and hungry after an autumnal short walk into Ambleside, it was time to eat! You'll not be disappointed ! The meal was well presented well cooked, interesting and delicious -lived up to the Rothay Manors enviable reputation. Gorgeous! I was quite happy to leave my 92yr old Dad there, on a painting holiday, knowing he would be well looked after - and he was!

Tucked away in attractive garden surroundings close to the center of Ambleside, Rothay Manor offers very comfortable and well equipped rooms with fine restaurant and good food. Excellent for quiet pampered stay in the Lake District.

It's dated and old fashioned....

Posted Aug 28, 2015
Staff are fantastic, very friendly welcome and free car parking. Set in really attractive grounds and just a short walk to town centre. Breakfast was generous and service excellent. The room felt damp and was dated. But it was clean and a good size. Beds comfortable, good TV channels and excellent wifi. Cost, we stayed bank holiday week and with limited availability we had very little options - if you attribute the nightly cost to the experience then it's way way over priced. Out of season it's probably good value. Overall - for a last minute getaway we overpaid, but it's adequate for a night or 2.
