We have just spent 4 night's here. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful , and the breakfast well cooked and prompt. Our room 5 was a little small although clean, ( so would book a larger room next time ) The only complaint we had was, our room was at the rear of the hotel and we were... More

The hotel is just 10 minutes walk into Ambleside town-centre. On-site parking, with a public car-park next door. Nice looking building, lovely garden, clean, well maintained. Checked-in at 3pm - staff very friendly. The room (7) was on the top floor, was quite large, very clean, comfy bed, lovely bathroom (inc. air-spar bath) and a nice mountain view from a... More

Stayed for one night, garden double room was really lovely. Children had family room with grandma which was also nice with stunning views Location is great , in between lake and town,a short walk to each. Parking out the front , not to the side or you might get a ticket ! Friendly and helpful staff , awesome breakfast !

I also wanted to mention how fantastic the owner was helping me when my car broke down. The hotel itself is very well kept, the rooms are nice and clean with great... More

Staying at Fisherbeck for the past 3 days has been a great experience and pleasure. From the moment we checked in Mr & Mrs Lane and their staff couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Given us so much help and attention to help us have a great time in the Lake District. They have advised on walks drawing us... More

Great position on the outskirts of Ambleside, short walk into town, easy to park the car, clean rooms, good food and welcome, good base for walks, great shower. Ideally we are used to a bigger bed but we were so tired after long walks it didnt matter.

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
