    Exceptional
    Stayed in a beautifully appointed Luxury Lake View room which we were very lucky to receive as an upgrade. A very comfortable and spacious room with lots of nice extras. This is a great quality hotel with very welcoming and professional staff in all areas of the hotel. Excellent standard of food and wine in the restaurant and at reasonable prices, topped-off with a really good quality breakfast. A pat on the back for everyone at the Waterhead Hotel! Highly recommended!!

    Arrived to be told we were not booked in ? Few anxious moments untill reception informed us she needed to see booking details . Showed them to her then she found our details as she had misunderstood m
    The bed was very uncomfortable and the room very hot . The hairdryer was broken , they did change it but only after ringing reception twice. Location is great .

    Weekend in Ambleside
    Very comfy bed, wide range & delicious breakfast, quiet.
    Lovely room, generally very friendly & helpful staff with good knowledge of the local area. Hotel was very clean & the room we stayed in was very comfy & had all we needed. The only issue was the lack of air conditioning as even without the heating on and the window open, the room was very hot. This said, I would highly recommend & go back again.

    Lovely hotel in Ambleside
    It's location, clean and comfortable rooms, excellent service especially from the restaurant staff
    We had a wonderful two night stay at the Waterhead in Ambleside. The setting of the hotel was modern and contemporary yet had a warm, cosy and traditional feel. The rooms were tastefully decorated, clean and very comfortable. The staff of the hotel were also very accommodating and did their best to make our stay comfortable. The location of the hotel is also superb as it faces the beautiful Lake Windmere and its stunning views. It is also right beside the Ambleside Pier and a very short walking distance to the lovely and quaint Ambleside town. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and hope to return again!

    Location, room, decor
    It was very good. The hotel is lovely. The only disappointment is that the WiFi didn't work for us. I wouldn't hesitate to come back to this hotel however.
