We spent a long weekend at the Ryebeck recently, and found it the perfect retreat for a relaxing weekend break or more... The hotel couldn't be better placed, situated on a hillside overlooking Lake Windermere at Bowness. Once a country house, the Ryebeck has been sympathetically decorated in keeping with the building, keeping its charm whilst also providing a comfortable... More

Stayed here overnight when we climbed Scafell Pike. We stayed in one of the cottage rooms because we had our dog. The room was clean and very nice, with a massive comfortable bed and some nice touches like a jar of biscuits and filter coffee. The food in the restaurant was of a very high standard, although the choice was... More

We stayed here as part of a dinner, bed and breakfast passage. Not our usual type of hotel but I would highly recommend it. We had a lake view room which did give us a view in the distance. The room was comfortable and the provision of some free toiletries for the wife added a pleasant touch. The staff were... More

Our stay at the Ryebeck was faultless. The hotel is beautifully clean and well furnished and all the staff were friendly, helpful and so polite!!! We quickly developed a soft spot for our young waiter Jonathan......what a lovely young man. The food was just fab and definitely to our taste. Our Lake View Room was small but again very clean...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Ryebeck !! The hotel is perched a top of a hill looking down on Lake Windermere. There are pretty outdoor sitting areas and gardens all around the hotel. We enjoyed several meals there including afternoon tea, breakfast, and dinner. The food was delicious and well presented !!! The dining room is... More

We stayed for two nights on a DBB deal with a half bottle of champagne in the room on arrival and a goody bag of bath delights. We had a lakeview room which was rather small as was the bathroom and it was very basic so we were a bit dissappointed. However the view was lovely. I thought they were... More

We stayed for two nights on a DBB deal. The hotel was lovely with a beautiful garden terrace where you can sit and enjoy the view. There was a comfortable lounge and a cosy bar area. As we were on a discount deal we did not expect a large lake view room! The standard double room was an adequate size... More

We stayed 1 night on a dinner , bed and breakfast deal which turned out to be good value. Lake views were a sight of water through the trees but nice nevertheless. The room was decently sized with a jacuzzi bath. The menu was restricted but not a fault for that and 2 items were unavailable. The food was beautifully... More
