A wonderful experience, starting with cream tea and proseco, in the lounge with magnificent views of garden and lake Windermere. Room was elegant, warm and spacious. The evening started with canopes whilst browsing the menu. The whole meal had our taste buds dancing and the presentation was a joy to behold. The staff were very professional friendly. Can't wait to... More

Our two night stay at the Ryebeck was most enjoyable. The Lake View room was well appointed with a very comfortable bed and good quality oak furniture. The patio doors facing the large garden and the Lake proved most convenient as did the patio table and chairs for our use. The staff we met at the Hotel were all friendly... More

The Ryebeck is a beautifully located hotel with good quality rooms. The views and the grounds are top class. My only problem with the hotel was the evening meal. Yes the food was well presented and of good quality, but the food presented was not what I expected from the menu description. The Rabbit & Langoustine seemed to have a... More

We stayed here for one night on a Living Social voucher, value of the deal was great, afternoon tea with glass of bubbles, 3 course meal and full English. We didn't stay in the main hotel but a few rooms off to the side which was nice and had a view of the garden. It was absolutely pouring but didn't... More

Stayed at the Rybeck on 12th April, for my husbands 60th birthday. We went on a Sunday and was able to take advantage of a great offer, one night's bed, breakfast and dinner, with a cream tea on arrival. We had not had lunch, so we ordered afternoon tea for one, to go with the scones and tea. Absolutely deicious... More

Myself and my husband have just arrived back from our honeymoon to the ryebeck. We had an amazing time. On arrival we were told that our room had been upgraded, and it was to the best room in the hotel, it had amazing views of the lake, the food was outstanding. Staff were very attentive. Our stay was very memorable.

I had booked a two night stay for my partners birthday and had advised the hotel of this way ahead of our visit. I had thought that the Ryebeck might have taken this into consideration and acknowledged this in some small way but they didn't. Oh we'll not the end of the world as on arrival the hotel looked beautiful... More

Had the taster menu - not only stunning to look at but flavours and combinations to die for! Can't stress how good the food was. Lovely touches like complimentary canopies before dinner. A relaxing bar... More
