    “We have stayed in this apartment a couple of times previously.”

    The location is great for shops/restaurant and walks. However this time we felt a little let down by the cleanliness especially the bathroom. It was obvious that around the taps, shower and toilet they had not been cleaned in some time properly due to the build up of black mould. I spent my Friday afternoon giving it a good clean with the antibacterial spray I bought with me as I couldn’t leave it like that for the next person and the smell was getting worse as the week went on.

    The location is great for shops/restaurant and walks. However this time we felt a little let down by the cleanliness especially the bathroom. It was obvious that around the taps, shower and toilet they had not been cleaned in some time properly due to the build up of black mould. I spent my Friday afternoon giving it a good clean with the antibacterial spray I bought with me as I couldn’t leave it like that for the next person and the smell was getting worse as the week went on. The mould on the ceiling was bad enough and definitely needs attending too, at least decorated. I understand the room becomes damp but there should not have been the build up of mould in those areas if cleaned properly. Check in and out times are now earlier/later which I thought was to allow extra cleaning due to Covid but it is evident that extra time is not being spent. I will have to think twice before staying here again especially with the price increase next year.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
