Ambleside has always been a great holiday destination, combining a bustling pretty town centre with great little cafes and shops, and it is surrounded by simply beautiful countryside. Pretty Rothay Manor is just a ten minute walk from the action but surrounded by landscaped gardens. There’s a country house feel to the place with just 16 bedrooms and three suites while the restaurant specialises in local food so expect breakfasts of bacon and Cumberland sausage from a producer in Ambleside, evening supper fish from Morecombe and Fleetwood and game from the fields of Cartmel and Holker Hall. Traditional Afternoon Tea is served every day between 1200 and 1700. Guests get free use of Salutation Health Club and Spa which is just ten minutes' walk from the hotel.

Rothay Manor Hotel is part of the following Travel Ideas:

Ten Historic Hotels in the Lake District by Adrian Mourby

"This country house takes its name from the River Rothay, which was named the Red River by Viking settlers. The manor was built in 1823 as a private residence for a successful Liverpool merchant who wanted somewhere healthy and impressive to lodge his family. Much of the original Regency design can still be discerned. Since the 1960s the hotel has been owned and managed by the Nixon family."

Review of Rothay Manor Hotel

Posted on by Pamela JCustomer stayed on Jun 2014

An excellent buffet style afternoon tea. There was a large selection of sandwiches on both brown and white bread full of tasty fillings. Cakes were aplenty, delicious and mouth-watering. The house tea was smooth and thirst-quenching. All this set in such a relaxing surroundings.

Posted on by Vivienne LCustomer stayed on Jun 2014

We really enjoy staying at this hotel. The staff make you feel welcome and at ease. Nothing is too much trouble. Bedrooms are comfortable and attractive if not at the cutting edge of interior design! The food served in the restaurant is excellent. It is beautifully presented and full of flavour. It is a relaxing and comfortable place to take a break.

We visited the hotel for afternoon tea on November 2nd. Excellent range of sandwiches/savouries followed by cakes and scones. Wide range of teas. Courteous and polite service in a very comfortable drawing room. A safe haven in the thunderstorm.

Posted on by Pamela BCustomer stayed on Sep 2013

Warm, comfy, wonderful food, friendly and family run. Rothay Manor Hotel is still a firm favourite of ours. There is good disabled access and facilities. Also their superb afternoon high tea, which is a must at £15.00 per head. This hotel, although quite near to the town of Ambleside, is quiet, relaxing and welcoming. We shall be back!
The Fairfield Suite has an additional small bedroom for families, and is spacious and comfortable.

Staff very attentive, nothing left to chance. Delicious food, hot, varied. Breakfast all you could wish for, very well cooked, all catered for. Excellent home made marmalade, jam, petit fours and canapés served at dinner. Beds very comfortable, en-suite very good.

Review of Rothay Manor Hotel

Posted on by Janet TCustomer stayed on Jul 2012

This is a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. Our bedroom was large and comfortable and better than we expected. The staff not only go out of their way to make sure that you have everything you need but they do it with a smile. We booked for dinner, bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed, the choice and quality of the food is consistently high. Lovely touches, for example, canapés in the lounge before dinner and coffee with a plate of chocolates and fudge served afterwards, make this hotel stand out.

Review of Rothay Manor Hotel

Posted on by Jean DCustomer stayed on Jun 2012

Staff were friendly and attentive (without being fawning). Food was out of this world. We weren't served anything we didn't enjoy. The shower in the room was the best out of all the hotels we've stayed in. The room was clean, comfortable and well furnished.
