Riverside B&B in Ambleside, the Lake District, found itself last week in the comfortable #4 spot on Tripadvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards. And no wonder with its distinct personal charm and magnificent natural surroundings. While it’s true that Riverside B&B is nestled in the unmatched beauty of the Lake District, judging by the reviews, its guests attribute its success to far more than location.
Warm Hospitality = Happy Guests!
Although the bed and breakfast, a large Victorian country house just outside the town of Ambleside, boasts its own apparent beauties and charms, what happy reviewers consistently emphasize (and with a 99% approval rating most are happy!) is the warm hospitality offered at Riverside. A significant number of reviews mention the owners by name and express a sincere delight in the service and warm welcome provided. They also make special mention of the delicious breakfasts, with freshly baked bread as a favorite personal touch. What’s more, fresh and locally grown foods make an appealing addition to the breakfast table.
Extra Touches Bring Guests Back
Apart from the warm welcome and the tasty food, Riverside is one comfy place to stay and relax. After a long day of hiking in the Lake District, the bed and breakfast offers large, nicely decorated and clean rooms, a hot bath in a full size tub, and a guest lounge complete with fireplace, ambient lighting and a large selection of books, magazines and local information guides. The convivial owners, Brenda and Dave, look after their guests and provide an ideal place for the kind of relaxation that compliments a satisfying day’s adventure in the surrounding Lake District.
Many of the reviewers on Tripadvisor are returning customers, and they are coming back to Riverside again and again to experience its warm, welcoming, and comfortable atmosphere. There are no gimmicks here, just honest and friendly comfort.
