Except for problems with the TV, (break-up of the pictures, then 'No signal' and no radio either), I found my room and the shower clean and comfortable.
friendliness of staff, location very clean , comfortable bed and pillows
very nice clean bathroom but not ensuite
size of room, comfort,
right on the main road ( noise ) very close to late bars and clubs would suit younger clubbers.
The room had been decorated and fitted out to a good standard. It was in an ideal location. The shower was a good size. The room was large. Free wifi (although we didn't use it).
The shower room was not cleaned during our 4 night stay. There were no toiletries available apart from hand soap. The information in the room said that beds would be made between 10.30 and 2pm and one day our bed was not made even though we had vacated the room well before 2pm. There were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room only a vending machine located on the landing of one of the floors. It was very noisy within the accommodation. Noise carried between rooms through the doors. Over four nights we slept well and quietly just once. On two nights we were awaken by guests banging on a bedroom door and shouting to the occupants to turn the television down. On another night we were awaken by loudly banging doors. Automaticly closing doors banged loudly. There was also noise from the busy road at the front of the building. Parking was quite a distance away which was a little inconvenient. The room was advertised as having a seating area whereas in fact there was only one chair in it. To summarise, this accommodation was over priced, and really only offered a nice room and good location for the price; no breakfast, no proper servicing of the room, no toiletries, no tea and coffee making facilities and it was noisy. I would not stay there again.
Great location, free parking, friendly and helpful staff, nicely decorated room, Nice shower, nice bedding, loved the coffee machine!
Rooms are close to one another and if u get unlucky can mean noisy neighbours..
We stayed three nights at Ambleside central. It is not really a hotel, but consists of rooms with the basic facillities, where you could come back to, for a night's rest after a tiring day out. Staying in during day time would have been boring. Ambleside Central is truly centrally located in this little town where there are a number of good restaurants/ food outlets in the neighbourhood. Since we mainly focused on seeing the country side, climbing the Loughrigg Fell and Cruising on the Windermere Lake, this was an ideal location for us. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall we were happy with our stay.
The rooms are rather small and not sound proof. Noise from the restaurant's back quarters/ neighbouring rooms would have been a problem, had we not been sound sleepers.
The location was fantastic and rooms of a very high standard, we are walkers so the location of the lake and walks was very handy also. I would recommend to all to stay away from the Churchills bar across the road as the bouncers tried to provoke my husband into hitting him, he did not though. All in all the ambleside was excellent.
You can come and go as you please, own door and key.
It was clean and very well presented. The location was ideal, as was the resturant that serves lovely Italian food
The only small negative was the coffee machine in the hall, I would have taken a travel kettle had I known.
Not much! A hole in the wall, up three flights of stairs. You ask about "the hotel". It is not a hotel. The proprietors say "we are not a hotel" when we asked for soap!!! I thought I was booking a bed and breakfast but no breakfast. Definately the low point of our visit to the UK.
The room was very pleasant. Very clean and pracitable. I would recommend the Ambleside Central to others
24 hour access to the hotel
parking was a bit of a problem and we were not aware there was no reception or staff on site. However checking in was reasonably trouble free you have to go to the italian restaurant next door. 3 of the rooms were the same price but 1 of these was quite substantially smaller than the other 2 so really should have been cheaper!
pretty good location
lack of facilities in the room. the bed was very uncomfortable and the car park was quite a walk from the hotel very inconveinient. no room service
Good Italian resturant below the hotel owned by the same people, friendly service and excellent Italian food......an excellent change to the usual 'chain Italian' experience!
With the resturant below it would be great if they would offer breakfast to guests, the only negative about the hotel.
The guest house is in the centre of square.
Very small room, no view, nothing just only guest house room. Reservation for car park takes about 15-20 mins walk. Not very helpful staff.
