Fantastic location on the waterfront. Easy to walk into Ambleside town as well as catch a bus to wherever you want to go in the Lake District. The staff were friendly. The downside was only having 2 toilets and 1 shower on the floor which meant had to wait in line. There was never soap in the soap dispenser in the toilet. I also didn't like the fact that the doors had to be manually locked as people could easily forget to lock the door behind them. However, overall value for money.

great place right next to the lake, great views and perfect location, staff are really helpful with directions and suggestions for walks.
Great location. Should provide separate luggage locker for each person. Need to improve wifi connection and make it free to use.
