    • Perfect Place to Stay- Vegan Friendly

      Reviewed 26 September 2019

      Lovely friendly people who could not have done anything more to make us feel welcome and well looked after. Our room was clean and very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The breakfast was great- vegetarian and vegan options happily catered for. When we visit the Lake District again, this is where we will stay.

    • Fantastic Place to Stay

      A great place to stay. Lovely people, excellent size rooms. Fantastic breakfast, very clean, great location, comfy beds and very good price. Thoroughly recommend staying here. An allocated parking space was made available. When we stayed the owners were away but the couple running in their absence were lovely. Short walk to the falls and 2 mins from the very centre of Ambleside. Great location. Gluten free breakfast made available. Quiet hotel, so nice sleep had.

      Stayed from September 15th for 4 nights, was greeted on arrival by John the stand in host for the duration who was very welcoming and informative, Our room on the top floor and was not over large with a small double bed and had the disadvantage of sloping ceilings in bedroom and bathroom which resulted in two or three bumps on the head. Overall was quite clean and warm with a bottle of radox on hand in the bathroom to soak those aching limbs!!! Breakfast was superb , if you didnt want a full english every day you just leave a note the night before on what you require. There isnt a sitting room apart from a two seater in the breakfast room. The Norwood is ideally situated for all the very good restaurants and drinking establishments near by and a very good bus service is just a two minute walk to the stop. All in all would recommend you check exactly which room you would be getting before committing.

      We visited Norwood house in May for the late bank holiday, when we arrived the hosts were welcoming and helpful. The room we stayed in felt really homely. Breakfast was lovely, I would definitely stay here again!

    • Lovely Guest House

      Reviewed 24 August 2019

      Wendy and Keith were lovely hosts that take a genuine interest in their guests. The room we stayed in was spacious and very comfortable, the bed especially so. The breakfast area is restful and very well presented. My poached egg was perfect and the croissants, omg theyre delicious and from what I could tell, the full breakfasts other diners had, also looked perfectly cooked, they certainly smelled yummy. The guest house is superbly located for all amenities and we will definitely be back to stay here if we are fortunate enough to come back to the Lakes. Thank you, our stay may have been short but it was definitely memorable.
