Positive Reviews

Location couldn't be better

So much lies within a five or ten-minute walk from this guest house: even the northern shore of Windermere can be reached in less than half-an-hour Unbeatable.

Good dining and drinking options on the doorstep

Being a 'room-only' accommodation means there aren't any dining options or self-catering facilities within the building itself However, this is not a problem as Ambleside Central is nestled between the 'Tarantella' Italian restaurant and The Lily pub, both of which serve up plenty in the way of food, drink and socialising.

Rooms are a good size

If you're worried that your bedroom will be a pokey little affair because that's so often the way things are with room-only bookings then relax: the guest rooms at Ambleside Central are really very spacious indeed.

Negative Reviews

Bar is a bit noisy

As well as being a highly favoured watering hole in its own right, The Lily pub is known for being a popular live music venue Suffice to say, staying within earshot of a lively pub like this might not be the best option if you're someone who likes to get an early night.

Free parking isn't close by

In fact, it's about the best part of 500 metres away Still, it is free.

Walls between guest rooms are very thin

If the bar doesn't disturb you then there's always your neighbours: you WILL hear them!
