My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Ryebeck for one night Friday gone. It was an impromptu break just to recharge our batteries, and it certainly did that. We stay in various hotels throughout the year mostly always in this area of Cumbria, I think we usually get about 6 short stays in within most years.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Ryebeck for 3 nights last week (mid-week) and had a lovely stay. Our room (11) was excellent, really relaxing decor, quiet, jacuzzi bath and amazing lake views. We didn't want to leave! The meals were quite simply - gorgeous! Dining was a total treat, canapes in the study and 4 courses in the... More

The staff here are brilliant and all very friendly and there is an amazing restaurant. Other reviews suggested there was not a lot to eat, but we had 3 teenage boys with us and once you have had an aperitif, amuse bouche, starter, main and desert, I defy you to not be full! You have to try the chocolate and... More

Just had a great short break at this hotel. The location is beautiful,. The hotel is a nicely decorated country house over looking the lake, it is a very relaxing place. The staff were very friendly. The dinner was truly wonderful, this has to have been one of the best meals I have ever had, genuinely fine dining.

We made the Ryebeck out first two night stay away from home with our 5 week old son. Our first night was the evening before our friends' wedding (reception at the hotel the following evening) and upon arrival we asked if we could put some expressed milk in the fridge. This was done without hesitation and with a smile. From... More

We just stayed for the 2 night tasty deal. This included 2X4 course meal, breakfast, afternoon tea and prosecco on arrival, some of which we were not even expecting, and a room upgrade for £370 For me the real highlight was the food, the chef is exceptional. I had the tuna on a rock starter, which was one of the... More

We stayed in a room overlooking the entrance. We had no view of the lake. The room was clean with nice touches like home baking on arrival. The shower had poor water pressure but given its rural location, is perhaps understandable. The dinner was exceptional, the chef or chefs clearly know what they are doing. All courses were excellent, in... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice size room with powerful shower and view of the landscaped gardens. First class food, best I've had. Relaxing lounge, bar prices a little pricey. Would definitely return.

We stayed at the Ryebeck over the last weekend for our daughter's wedding. The hotel building and grounds are beautifully designed and maintained, being stylish and comfortable, particularly the bedrooms. The food is spectacularly good, even when serving to 70+ people, however my highest praise goes to the staff who were without exception, superb. Nothing was too much trouble and... More
