We have just returned for a two night stay here for my Birthday. Fantastic location- 5 minute walk to the town or the Waterside. Staff were friendly and the rooms were spotless. Decor in the room was gorgeous and so pretty. Also loved the fancy goodies- such as shampoo, shower gels, soaps- very chic. Breakfast was delicious and the waiting... More

We stayed here last week for the first time and can assure you we will be back. Sadly our holiday started with a car crash on the way up to them and the concern and kindness we received from Gill and Reheanne was most welcome. The hotel itself is ideally situated just on the outskirts of the town, a short... More

Stayed in one of the garden rooms which was spacious and with a lovely bathroom. It would have been nice to have had a couple of hooks on which to hang wet coats and a mat of some sort to wipe shoes on but apart from that everything was fine. The staff were efficient and attentive especially during the breakfast... More

The hosts are so hospitable and helpful. Ray and Gillian make you feel as if you are coming home. The Fisherbeck is spotless -- I saw staff cleaning high corners and crannies every day. My room had every amenity I could wish for, and the shower was particularly comforting. The breakfast is delicious -- my eggs were cooked to perfection... More

We recently stayed at The Fisherbeck for 2 nights and cannot praise the hotel and staff enough for the exceedingly high standard of service throughout our stay. The hotel is excellently located with a 5 minute stroll to Ambleside center where there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from. We stayed in a room with a small... More

Nothing wrong with that, of course, but compared to some of the B&Bs we've stayed in during our journey around the UK there is a loss of that personal touch, e.g. you will be welcomed by... More
