We recently made a return visit to the Riverside B&B in Ambleside. It continues to enjoy numerous accolades because Dave and Brenda excel at what they do. On this occasion we had driven eight hours from the north of Skye to reach there and it was such a pleasure to arrive. Dave and Brenda maintain their home with dedication but it is the human touch that really distinguishes them. They really do make all their guests feel welcome.
The breakfast is delicious and the choices are varied; the candles in the hall and lounge are pretty in the evening light; the local high quality toiletries and preserves etc are very much enjoyed! The room where we stayed has two windows overlooking the garden and the river. It is most comfortable and relaxing. We hope to return as the Riverside is conspicuously superior accommodation and Dave and Brenda are such lovely people!
