                                  The location was superb with wonderful views of Lake Windermere (despite the rather rainy weather we had !). Our room was of a good size and reasonably well furnished.

                                  Whilst on the whole the stay was just about satisfactory it was spoilt somewhat by the inconsistency of the quality of food we ate during the evenings, some of which had to be returned.There was also one breakfast time where the service (in terms of receiving the food following the order) was extremely slow and there was a general atmosphere of a number of disgruntled customers.

                                  We found Wateredge Inn very comfortable and ideally situated as a base for a Lake District holiday. The staff were very helpful, efficient and friendly. The wonderful view from the dining area and waterfront was very special. Although very well patronised, especially at weekends, noise was never a problem.

                                  Being on the lakeside was superb! The weather co-operated beautifully! Close to Ambleside meant we could wander there if we wanted. Very close to the tourist boat trips.

                                  Would have preferred a proper restaurant - we were celebrating our Pearl Wedding Anniversary and would've liked a special meal - bar meal was ok.

                                  Excellent location. Extremely comfortable rooms with fantastic views. The staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast will keep you going until dinnertime. One of the best I've stayed in the Lakes and I would thoroughly recommend it.

                                  The location on the edge of Lake Windermere and the views from the hotel. The studio room was spacious and comfortable and although bordering the main road, the traffic noise did not disturb unduly. The public rooms were attractive and clean and the restaurant meals were good, if a little expensive. The proximity of boat services on the lake was extemely good and there was plentiful information available about local activities. The staff were generally friendly and helpful.

                                  We had intended to use buses to travel around the area rather than use our car. Unfortunately, the duty manager was unable to give us much information and did not know where the nearest bus stop to the hotel was (it was 50 yards away)! The bus services were unreliable and expensive but good when they did turn up. Space was extremely tight in the hotel car park and we didn't dare to use our car in case there was no space when we returned. The policy of allowing non-residents to use the hotel services, particularly the restaurant, meant that the hotel became uncomfortably full at times, although some facility was made for residents. The mess left by the geese on the lawns in front of the hotel by the lakeside was revolting and required great care when walking there.

                                  Clean comfortable room with view over the lake. Ideal base for fell walking. Easy stroll into Ambleside.

                                  Bar/restaurant packed with day trippers on fine days. Food was (Wetherspoons) standard bar meals, and vastly over-priced for the quality on offer.

                                  Hotel is right by the side of the lake. Lovely views while eating in the restaurant. Not far to walk to Ambleside and 100 metres to the boats that go around the lake.

                                  The female singer was great she was a lovely person who encouraged the audience to participate really well. The location was fantastic by the side of the lake and all facilities were just what we were looking for.

                                  The car park was jam packed solid when we arrived which was quite inconvenient as we arrived around 8pm hungry and tired after a very warm journey, then had to park and move it later. Other than that nothing to report.

                                  The locality, at the edge of Windermere, great views from the dining room and gardens. Very easy to leave the car for the duration of the holiday and walk into Ambleside. Easy access for many long hiking walks. Next to Windermere ferries for alternative hikes. For a lovely meal walk into Ambleside and try the 'Dodds Restaurant' it's excellent with great food and wine.

                                  The bedrooms are directly onto the main Ambleside through road, however, traffic did stop during the evening to enable a nights sleep re-starting again approx 6am.

                                  The view was spectacular. Good choice for breakfast and dinner menu. Also good beer . very handy for the cruise boats on the lake. Very enjoyable weekend.

                                  The wicker settee in the room was not very comfortable .not sure about allowing dogs in bedrooms?

                                  The location and setting were great.

                                  It is so popular with visitors that residents have to compete for choice locations by the water edge service in the restaurant is impacted by how busy the staff are. The food was simple but tasty. It's not a venue for quiet getaway, the idealic setting is spoilt by the crowds.

                                  Very comfortable bright room. View overlooking lake windemere. Food was excellent with lovely dining room again overlooking lake and garden. Plenty of other rooms to relax in with fires.
