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

When staying for a week or more in an area I always look for self-catering options. I was very happy to find Woodside Cottage on the grounds of the Fisherbeck Hotel in Ambleside. It is a lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath (1 en-suite) apartment/flat with all the cooking & laundry options needed within the flat. The interior was nicely thought... More

We were really looking forward to our weekend away due to a very busy work schedule, i booked a standard double not planning to be in the room that much but was surprised by how small the room was, although maybe that's what you get in a prime location in Ambleside for £89 a night. The shower cubical was really... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
WELCOME TO THE FISHERBECK. When you are away from home you want to be comfortable, so why not relax on our luxury leather sofas, enjoy a glass of wine, cool beer, cappuccino or latte, perhaps with a little something from our light bite menu. And then sleep easy in one of our individually designed bedrooms, some with fantastic views, balcony, spa bath or king size bed.If you are looking for a truly hearty well cooked breakfast, for several years we have been the recipients of the Good Breakfast Award. We make our own muesli, granola, breakfast muffins and rum butter. Eggs are collected direct from the farm for absolute freshness. Award winning bacon, sausage and black pudding are sourced locally and our smoked haddock and salmon are some of the finest in the north of England, all cooked for you personally. If you want to be well located with really great views of Loughrigg Fell and onwards to the Langdale Pikes, an easy stroll to shops, restaurants and the lake, we really are perfectly located in Ambleside right in the heart of The Lake District. Our 18 bedrooms are all en-suite and three feature balconies overlooking magnificent Lakeland views opposite. Supremely comfortable, the rooms are equipped with all the facilities you need for a luxurious stay in the heart of this most beautiful area. Our sheltered garden provides a tranquill place to relax and admire the glorious panoramic view of the Langdale Pikes, Wansfell and Loughrigg Fell. ... more   less
