Room 14 was excellent and spotlessly clean as was bath/shower room. All very modern and warm too. Breakfast staff happy, smiley and very polite. Thank you Ray once again for the champers for our anniversary!

We booked this hotel via Go Lakes, don't, do it direct with the hotel as they do specials but only direct. Pay more and stay in a front room not the slightly cheaper rear rooms as we were woken every morning by Jackdaws which nest in the eaves and over the road, not to mention the bin lorry which empties...

House has been modernised to provide real quality accomodatiion for up to six adults. We have no negative comments and will be returning. Even the potential "Ambleside issue" of car parking had been addressed.

Stayed for one night, good value for money and priced competitively. Good location near centre, set back off the road so very quiet. Stayed in Room 1, was lovely and clean, all amenities needed including hairdryer. Breakfast included with the price which was 2 courses! We were stuffed, but would set you up for the day. Fabulous stay, was recommended... More

Thank you very much indeed for taking the time to write your review and so very pleased that you had an enjoyable stay. Perhaps if you have the opportunity to visit the Lake District in the future you might stay just a little longer. We would certainly look forward to welcoming you back to The Fisherbeck. Kind regards Gillian Lane More
