An absolutely gorgeous hotel, beautiful room and peaceful surroundings along with some of the most beautiful food I've had. Staff were lovely, attentive and welcoming. Cannot wait to return here very soon.

We stayed here for two nights last weekend and were thrilled with the attentive staf and the delicious food. We stayed in a ground floor room as we had our dog with us, she was welcome in the lounge area and we could leave her in our room whilst we ate. The room was very clean and beautifully presented.

We have stayed in this hotel many times. It is always a delight. The staff are always charming, friendly and helpful. The food is wonderful. The bedrooms are comfortable (ours was not very large but that didn't matter at all) with lovely beds and bedding and the toiletries provided along with the huge bath sheets in the ensuite are great....

We stayed at The Ryebeck to celebrate my fiancés 30th birthday. The hotel is great, our room looked out over the lake with some beautiful views. Liked the bath tea bag which is perfect after a days walking. Only reason we haven't given full marks is that the service could be improved upon. Our room wasn't ready and a few...

My husband and I have stayed at the Ryebeck a few times and we had our wedding reception there, in June 2016. We returned this February for a two night stay with our labrador, Ruby and had a lovely time in this comfortable hotel with friendly staff and a beautiful view. As we expected, the food was fantastic. Over the...

From the outset we were made very welcome and it was clear that nothing would be too much trouble. The meal in the restaurant in the evening was of the highest quality, with friendly and helpful waiters. The English breakfast in the morning was delicious.

This is a very pretty hotel with far reaching views over its own grounds and Windermere (the lake not the town) Every one of the staff was lovely, breakfast was delicious and beautifully served and the rooms were immaculate. We enjoyed reading in the bar and drawing rooms and watching the birds through the windows. Thanks to you all
