    Not so Spartan after all


    This place has recently been done up and compared to my distant memories of it it is a big, big improvement. They serve breakfast from 7 and will provide a packed breakfast if you need to leave earlier. the rooms are a good size and, if you are lucky, the views over the lake are fantastic.

    They also have a bar and it is only 10 minutes walk away from ambleside centre and 10 minutes by cab from kendal

    Unique Quality: Great view, nice location and you don't have to wash your own pots after breakfast any more!

    Directions: Just off the A591, coming from the M6 it is just before you hit ambleside centre

    YHA with a view


    We haven't stayed here because we usually visit with our caravan. If we did want to stop at a budget place, this would be at the top of our list.

    There is a cafeteria with alcohol licence, pleasant lobby and an assortment of rooms with different room sizes available, or the traditional dorm. You can check out availability on the web, but it does get booked up solid for months at a time, so don't just turn up and hope for the best.

    Unique Quality: The hotel has great views over Lake Windermere and a big Lake front-side location.

    Directions: On the main Windermere to Ambleside road, turn off left just before entering the main town.
