We stayed at The Rampsbeck on the way home from Edinburgh. We have stayed there before and it has been completely refurbished over the past five years and it's beautiful with wonderful views overlooking Ullswater. Our room was decorated to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. We had dinner in the restaurant which serves nouvelle cuisine, and it... More

Beautiful rooms with all the extras you would expect from a 4*, complimentary fruit and water on arrival. Very comfy bed. I would definitely recommend dining in the restaurant, slightly on the pricey side but absolutely worth it, wonderful tastes, very attentive staff. My only fault would be the atmosphere in the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired, too... More

Great hotel it was like stepping back in time. THE Place was beautiful inside and out . The food was great and the service was good. Two slight problems, we thought it was on the lake it isn't . Second it was beautiful and peaceful until one family arrived with screaming kids who decided to run around all the rooms... More

We just came back from a long weekend stay at the Rampsbeck, and couldn't have enjoyed it more. We stayed in the 'Ullswater' room-spacious, beautifully furnished and decorated, comfortable bed, huge bathroom with jetted tub and a wonderful lake view. We were out and busy all day, and it was a real treat to return to this lovely haven every... More

We have just returned from a four night stay at the Rampsbeck and we will definitely return. On arrival we were shown to our room which, being on the top floor, had a very limited view so we chose to upgrade to a suite. It was worth every penny of the extra cost as it was enormous with a lovely... More

We stayed here whilst participating in the World Marmalade Festival at nearby Dalemain House. We chose it based on its good ratings and proximity to Dalemain House. Initial appearances not too encouraging, the setting overlooking the lake is lovely but the exterior is a bit forbidding and perhaps a little bit in need of a lick of paint. However, once... More

we have stayed here several times and again this month, everything about the place is superb. A lovely setting, bedrooms are fresh and spacious, the public areas has a lovely feel about them and the food is superb, both for dinner and breakfast.

Once again our return to Rampsbeck could not be faulted. The warm welcome, the amazing staff, the general ambience all go to make a stay here a very enjoyable experience. The food is cooked to perfection and interesting and the views, even in the rain are ever changing. A wonderful special hotel not to be missed.
