My wife and I stayed at The Ryebeck hotel from 23/04/17 - 25/04/17. Upon arrival the check in was handled in a warm and professional manner. Our room was immaculate, the bathroom was spotless and sported fluffy pristine white towels, together with the usual bathroom accessories. Breakfast was varied and cooked to a high standard, with all the ingredients being...

We were very excited to meet our grown kids for a week away from the press of city careers. We wanted it to be special, luxurious, and a bit extravagant-- but we're US professors and therefore on a budget. The Ryebeck delivered on all of these criteria and then some A few examples: I did perhaps the most touristy thing...

Four of us visited for Sunday Lunch and we felt it was exceptionally good. We all had something different to eat, roast Galloway Beef, Saltmarsh Lamb, Chicken and Monkfish accompanied by vegetables with all the trimmings, plus a choice of size of Yorkshire Pudding, and we all agreed that everything we chose was really excellent. We also had very good...

This was a special family dinner, for four. Sensitive, attentive staff in adequate numbers. A keg beer, quite heavy, and served cold, is really worth a try: it's just like a real ale, and very tasty; it goes by the name of something like "5 Star". Excellent a-la-carte menu and imaginative wine list. Shared cold starters are becoming popular world-wide,...

I went on my own for a short break to the Rybeck. It is a lovely house in beautiful grounds with views of the lake. The staff were friendly but unfortunately my stay was spoilt by various problems in the bedrooms. I was in a single room on the first floor at the front of the house. There were 2...

We stayed overnight here with dinner and breakfast included in the deal and had a superb experience. Arriving slightly later than expected due to a lengthy walk, we were speedily checked in and offered a dinner slot at 7pm, which was perfect for us. The room was quiet, clean and kitted out with all that we required. The bathroom had...

This hotel is a real gem. Our weekend away was a gift from a friend and what a special treat. The location of the hotel is great, near to the centre of Bowness and Ambleside. The real star is the view from the gardens. We were lucky enough to have wonderful weather and spent most of the afternoon with a...
