Perfect for us, all of the staff couldn't do enough to help no matter what we needed, the location for us was perfect, close enough to walk in to the centre and quiet enough to get to sleep after been out on the fells, felt welcoming and comfortable. Little things like been able to stay parked after checking out was... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review, it is much appreciated. We are indeed fortunate to be so well located, just about half way between the lake and the shops, and a good sized car park in Ambleside is a real bonus. We do hope it won't be too long before we can welcome you... More

Great value, lovely and clean, excellent location to Ambleside (5 minuet walk). The room we stayed in was a family room it was plenty big enough for my wife and I and our two children. We enjoyed the morning view over the fells. Breakfast was perfect with excellence service. I would highly recommend the Fisherbeck and I would gladly stay... More

A few months ago my wife and I had a few days in the Fisherbeck and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was clean and tastefully decorated. The location was perfect- we could easily get to ambleside, windemere and other pretty villages in the area. The gave us a pass to use the spa, swimingpool etc at the nearby Langdale Hotel. This...

My wife and I stayed for one night on a pre-Christmas visit. Our room was tidy and presentable and had tea, coffee and a decent-sized kettle (and biscuits!) provided ... and the breakfast was second-to-none! We come to the Lake District in the late Autumn regularly and we will definitely stay here again ... for a longer stay next time!

An excellent hotel in a great location with plenty of onsite parking. The quality of breakfast was also excellent with a varied selection. All the staff were polite and attentive at all times. Only a short walk required into the town for many great pubs/restaurants..

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. The hotel contacted us before our stay to see if we wanted twin beds (as advertised on site) or as a super king, the extra large bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic and we tried many of the options over the three days including pancakes and smoked haddock.... More

Stayed in a garden room which was modern, clean and spacious, toiletries were not replaced i.e. shampoo and foam bath which were used on same day arrival. Breakfast was good but would have liked more mushrooms, one very small mushroom was placed on plate (why bother?) would have liked more, if I requested more would the request have been granted?

Hubby and I stayed at The Fisherbeck for a lovely quick break in Ambleside. The Fisherbeck is in a great location; the ferry terminal on Windermere and the centre of Ambleside with shops and restaurants are both a short 5 minute walk. It conveniently has a good sized car park giving you the opportunity to leave the car and go... More
