This guesthouse looks well kept from the outside as you enter. We were met by the proprietor who checked us in and gave us a running commentary of what we could and could not do while we stayed in his guesthouse. Our room was nicely large enough for a comfortable stay. Well decorated, with clean linen and a clean bathroom.... More

We really enjoyed our fab family room, which was ideal for the 3 of us (#16), great management and staff, breakfast is just amazing with lovely service and care. We have already made sure that our friends and family know about this gem of a hotel in Ambleside. Far enough from the centre of town to be quiet, but close... More

This location is indeed perfect for the town and the Lake. The breakfast was good and the staff polite. However, the lounge was definitely designed for older (retired) people. Our room was clean and comfy but very small.

I stayed at The Fisherbeck for 2 nights Aug 29/30, and was very happy, with the welcome from all the staff, and Raymond & Gill the owners. The hotel has a great location 5 minutes walk from Ambleside town. The reception lounge, and breakfast room share a fabulous window view onto the mountains. I could have spent the whole weekend...

Excellent hotel all round. It was our 12 week old baby boy's first mini break so we were looking forward to taking him to the Lakes for five days. The Fisherbeck was ideal. We had room 14 which was one of the out door rooms which was ideal for a young family. Very comfortable and spacious. Rare off street parking... More

Beautiful grounds and stunning views over the fells. Really friendly staff. This B&B has lots to offer, the choice for breakfast was great, something for everyone, it isn't served too early either. They do snacks and packed lunches and bar drinks in the lovely lounge. The bus stop is right outside for getting around and it's perfect distance for walking... More

Excellent room and facilities. Clean and modern everything you would want. Staff friendly and polite. We chose room 4 very quiet and no stairs. Breakfast was served efficiently and had excellent choice. The walk to the center of Ambleside is only a couple of minutes and is all flat walking. Definitely better then the hotels in the town center. Will... More
