I've now stayed at this hotel twice and both times really enjoyed it - great long weekend getaway from work and for some peace and quiet! We requested a garden room as this was well worth it as they are very quiet with lots of space and some chairs to sit outside. The bed is comfortable and the room is... More

What a nice place to stay. Clean and quality accommodation that you will remember with pleasure. Decent sized rooms with a comfortable bed well presented and the room overlooking the hills beyond the road a pleasure to wake up to (you have to ask for this type of room). There are some nice touches here also such as no mobile... More

My wife and I booked this hotel for an overnight stopover having read good reviews. The girls on reception were friendly and helpful, offering a complimentary coffee on arrival. The room was clean and comfortable with tea, coffee and a bottle of water provided. The shower room was compact but perfectly adequate and very clean, which for us is totally... More

We recently stayed at the Fisherbeck hotel for the first time. We found the staff extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very confortable, clean with a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was superb. We will definitely be staying here in future. An extremely well run and friendly hotel.

This was our second visit after a 6+ year gap. The hotel was as well kept and smart, just as we remembered it. The staff are excellent; polite and helpful. The ample car park is a bonus and very easy to find. We had a very comfortable room with a whirlpool bath/ shower en-suite. The choice at breakfast-time is extensive... More

We stopped here as we had booked Zeferellis restaurant in Ambleside for a birthday. We had a garden view room which was a lovely room ensure with a small seating area outside of the patio door onto the garden. The room wasn't actually in the building as such and was really pleasant. I had read previous reviews about the management... More

This is a very nice hotel (or B&B depending on your opinion). The rooms are very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and accommodating; they were particularly helpful with setting up a surprise for my friend's birthday. The lounge area is really nice with excellent views across to the Coniston fells, a perfect place to relax with a beer... More

We checked in and were given complimentary coffees in the lovely lounge at the front of the property. Our rooms were clean, warm and had lots of nice touches ie: bottled water,... More

This was our second stay and again there was nothing to fault. Accommodation, food and staff make this one of the best hotels. On site parking make it an ideal location to walk in to Ambleside or to drive in to other parts of the Lakes.
