The hotel was in a fantastic location 5 mins from town (walking) and 5 mins from the lake (walking). Stayed in room 7 which came with... More

We stayed in the Fisherbeck for two nights on our first trip to the Lakes, based on reviews here on TripAdvisor. We are so pleased that we did. The location was great - halfway between the lake and the town, and the staff were friendly and helpful. They gave us great directions also for our drive up to Scotland. If... More

We stayed over a bank holiday weekend and found the hotel owners to be very friendly. The accommodation was very clean and well kept. The breakfast was superb with a different "special" every day and the staff were very helpful and eager to please. We discovered on our return home that we had left a phone charger in the room...

Great location for exploring the Lakes. The Fisherbeck is friendly, clean, great value for money and in easy walking distance to Ambleside with all its shops and eateries. No need to use the car at night. Staff were extremely accommodating. We even ordered snacks when too tired to go out to eat. Highly recommended.

We stayed in The Fisherbeck recently for the Windermere Marathon, for anyone considering this in the future the location is excellent and only around a mile from the start line. The service we received in the hotel was polite and friendly from start to finish. The room was great, with some nice touches such as complementary biscuits and shower gel... More

First time at The Fisherbeck. We chose this on the basis of TA reviews and we're not disappointed. The place is well located with fine views of Langdale Pikes yet only a short stroll from the centre of Ambleside. Staff were friendly and attentive. Particularly at breakfast where the table service was impeccable. Great choice of breakfast with "specials" each... More

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
