About this Hotel

We would like to welcome you to Rothay Manor Hotel in Ambleside, an exceptional Regency-style country house hotel dating from 1825. Our luxurious bedrooms are perfect for relaxing in while you enjoy a quiet break in the Lake District countryside, and our onsite restaurant is well known as being one of the best in the town. We have beautifully landscaped gardens that you can relax in during the summer, and as we're less than half a mile from Lake Windermere and just a short stroll from Ambleside town centre we're perfectly placed. We have finished the hotel with hand-picked antiques, giving it the feel of a private home. Guests can choose from a selection of themed breaks including Lake District Heritage, Scrabble, Bridge, Gardening, Painting, Antiques, Music and Walking. All are supervised by approved guides / tutors and include talks, discussions, trips out and practical work.

Rothay Manor Hotel is recommended by many, and has received several awards. We've been listed Good hotel Guide in every edition, for 35 years and have 1 AA red rosette. Short Breaks are offered all year round, with discounted rates available from November - March. At Christmas and New Year the hotel offers traditional House Parties with a 3-night 'Festive Gap' break between the 2. At Rothay Manor, dining is treated as an experience to be savoured to the full and the hotel has a longstanding reputation for fine dining. The menu is varied and meals are prepared and served to the highest of standards with flair and imagination.
