Just returned from this lovely hotel. Owners very pleasant and nothing is to much trouble. Sittuated in the lovely village of Ambleside with wonderful views. My only gripe was the shower in our room, it was tiny. But apart from that would highly recommend staying here.

We had an excellent stay here. We arrived 4 hours early but our room was ready for us. It was exceptionally clean and well furnished. We had a lovely little patio on which to sit in the sunshine and watch the world go by. The breakfast menu was to drool over and, staying two nights, we could really indulge ourselves... More

Stayed at The Fisherbeck Sunday through to Thursday room 10. This must be the best B&B in Ambleside, it has the friendliest staff, nothing too much trouble, the breakfast is to die for with so many choices it could take you a while to make your mind up and the rooms must be the cleanest and best presented in the...

First thing I have to mention here is the 'HUB' Ambleside. This is the tourist information centre. They will do a search for the accommodation you require for 4pds, then ring the one that suits you best and book you in. Well after going in and out of every accommodation we could see looking for a triple room for ourselves... More

The Lanes have a formula for running their business. Quality, attention to detail and service, at a level one rarely encounters these days. We had a garden room over three beautifully sunny days and made full use of it's outside seating location facing the Fell. The decor, facilities and furnishing of the suite is first class and immaculately cleaned. Breakfast... More

We decided on a weekend in The Lake District. The budget wasn't limitless, but I'm firmly in the camp of " no point going if the accommodation isn't at least comparable to what you have at home, preferably better!" Due to circumstances we were booking at what is short notice for us, about a week before our trip. We narrowed... 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
