    Amazing house, beautifully restored with excellent taste keeping all the period style. Sue is a wonderful host and made us feel most welcome. Room comfortable, spacious and very clean, great bed and modern en- suite. Choose the mid-range rooms or suites as these have the fabulous views. Breakfast excellent and cooked to order loads of choice and all locally sourced. We hope it won't be long before we can come back and enjoy this wonderful place.

    Nanny Brow offered luxury along with comfort at an affordable price, We have travelled a lot over the years, abroad and in this country, and we can truly say this hotel is up with the best of them. The staff were extremely friendly , nothing too much trouble, and the decor and cleanliness in all the rooms was excellent. The service and food at breakfast was superb. We cannot fault a single thing and can not wait to recommend this hotel!!!

    Excellent quality Bed and Breakfast, if you like quality stay there, the owners have obviously spent a fortune renovating the building, quality furnishings, facilities, superb breakfast, attention to detail everywhere, as and when we return to the Lakes we won't even look at other options.Views are superb, friendly service, although not cheap by b&b standards, you get what you pay for and Nanny Brow was excellent value for money for us. My advice, pay a little extra, its well worth it.

    Stunning views from our room. Very quiet, peaceful location only a short drive away from Ambleside town. The building has been recently renovated and is tasteful and very comfortable. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

    It would have been better if check in was an hour earlier and checkout an hour later.

    A beautiful hotel finished to the highest of standards, with much attention to detail. Lovely location, lovely views and a lovely warm welcome from sue the owner andmark the manager. Nothing was too much to ask for even chilling our own wine in their fridge!! Breakfast was excellent. I believe this will be a top hotel in the lake district when people discover it has re-opened after 8 years. The new owner puts her heart and soul into this hotel and it shows! A perfect stay

    A wonderful place. Staff excellent, helpful and friendly.Breakfast brilliant and with a huge choice despite the small size of the B&B. The room we stayed in was true luxury with wonderful views of the lakeland fells thrown in. Bathroom was enormous and well stocked. All in all somewhere wonderful to stay in The Lakes. Don`t be put off by the B&B tag either as rooms are of international hotel standard run by a real family. Well done Nanny Brow.

    We made a last minute decision to stay here and I'm so glad that we did. The house and grounds were just perfect and we felt at home from the minute we arrived. We genuinely can't find a bad word to say about this place. The food is sourced locally and was beautifully prepared and presented. Peter, Mark and Emma couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend a stay at Nanny Brow.

    The location, close to routes to all parts of Lake District and evening dining facilities of Ambleside. The excellent suite and 'in house' facilities, together with wonderful morning vistas across countryside. Friendly attitude of owners.

    We enjoyed an excellent stay at Nanny Brow. Location was ideal, within minutes from Ambleside. Very high standard of accommodation, superb breakfast and staff were friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The owners were equally accommodating and very friendly and helpful. Nice touch was home made cakes left in your room each afternoon. Highly recommended as a venue for relaxtion and as a base for visiting surrounding areas. Room was large with views over countryside and mountains, large bathroom with two basins and double shower. Nanny Brow is a place to revisit -often, if time allows!

    The breakfast was excellent and the location brilliant unfortunately, the owners failed to even consider apologising or making a valid explanation other than to suggest it hasn't happened before and usually the fan goes off after 10 mins. Very very poor we are expwerienced travellers and have ben all around the Lakes

    The bathroom fan stayed on and interrupted our sleep after 40 minutes I had to phone to complain and was advised it usually goes off after 10 mins and given I was 6' tall I only had to press the override switch above the door for it to go off which, I didn't know about. I wasn't there to carry out maintenance. An explanation and apology would have been more helpful! The introduction was a cold greeting by the owner's and this ended the same in the night by her response to phoning about the fan- she was clearly unimpressed. We paid £210 for one night and will never go there again!

    the room with a view. comfort. quiet.

    very short window for breakfast 8-830am. seems designed around the staff rather than the customer. upside is it makes sure you get out of bed in the morning and get going.

    the wonderful peaceful location - views beautiful and rooms in the hotel part a delight - breakfast excellent - walks straight outside the front door

    looking forward to new bar and restaurant being finished then could have cosy meal

    This place is a gem. The proprietors are friendly, efficient, and very knowledgeable about the walking opportunities in the area, where to shop for walking equipment and are able to recommend places to eat. The views are stunning, decor and facilities amazing and quality of breakfasts delicious and locally sourced. We loved our room and the lovingly restored building that is clearly a passion for the owners. We will definately return in the near future and are already booked into their other property in the Cotswolds, as we can be assured of quality of service and amenities. We wish them luck in their continuing restoration of Nanny Brow.

    There was nothing to criticise about our stay.

    The owners made us feel at home, every little wish was taken care of graciously. It waslittle extras that made the difference, large bottles of toiletries which were filled daily, breakfast to suit our needs, a chat when we came 'home', information on how to make the best of our days whether sunny or overcast. The dog to wag its tail as we arrived, the stunning views - too many positives to mention

    Perhaps it was stretching it to walk in for dinner in the evening so we took the car which meant that one of us didnt drink.
