so, Mrs NMSE and i are planning a trip to the lakes next month. we reckon ambleside as a base, central, good choice of restaurants, quick to get to from yorkshire. baby sitters are sorted out, and since we dont get to do this very often these days, we'd like to stay somewhere a bit nicer than the youth hostel...

so looking for recommendations for a nice B&B or guesthouse, nothing too fancy, but comfortable and centrally placed. there is so much choice, not sure where to start, though a quick google found this place:

has anyone stayed there? was it ok? any other suggestions for alternatives...?

thanks folks!

Before we moved up to Cumbria we stayed at Amboseli Lodge when we did long weekends. Not been for a few years, but a quick Google shows Gwen and her husband are still running it. Therey're a really nice couple, and the rooms are spotlessly clean. There's also off street parking in the back yard.

I stayed there once (Easdale-Ambleside) its a superb BnB, in fact definitely the best Ive stayed at.
Owners are very friendly and helpful, breakfast was excellent, rooms kitted out with locally made furniture.

In reply to no_more_scotch_eggs: we use one of the many apartments/cottages at Kirkstone cottages, great place in a great location and when you take into consideration the cost of eating out every night etc the price is comparable to B and B ( and its 1 minute from the golden rule!)
