Took advantage of DBB offer on a Sunday night-1/2 bottle champagne waiting in room on arrival. Pleasantly sited within easy walking distance of Bowness-either down the hill and along the lakeside walk or on the main road. Large, landscaped gardens overlooking the Lake with big terrace and plenty of seating-perfect for a late afternoon glass of champagne! Very well kept... More

Lovely luxury hotel with a superb restaurant and an inspired and brilliant chef. The hotel is perfect and the restaurant is as good as any high end London restaurant run by any of the "celebrity" chefs.

Our second stay since it's name changed from the Fayrer Garden. The gardens are perfect for a peaceful stroll with plenty of sitting out areas. While rooms are not the biggest we've encountered ours was tastefully decorated, clean with a good shower-only bathroom, a lake view, and the expected range of tea making/toiletries etc. The staff know what is required...

We have just come back from a three nights stay at the Rybeck, this hotel was the perfect place for myself, my partner and our dog. We stayed in the cottage within the grounds of the hotel which was a comfortable well equipped room, very clean and furnished to a good standard. There is good car parking with ample space... More

This was perfect in every way. Lovely location, plenty space to walk, sit and reflect in the midst of magnificent views. Accommodation perfect. Food - fine dining at its very best - a wonderful surprise. Good service. Close proximity to attractions. Fabulous experience! We went on a special mini-break offer, at a discounted price, otherwise we could probably not have... More

One night stay in a superior room (12). Very comfortable, lovely views. Good location walked down to Hawkshead ferry (50p) each, visited Hill Top. Dinner was very good although our breakfast order got mislaid, waiting a long time and had to ask where it was! Staff very friendly. Still as good as Fayrer Garden and would go again!

I had a very pleasant stay at the Ryebeck. I was a solo traveller. In spite of the number of hotels in the area, most do not have single rooms. The Ryebeck does (two of them I believe). Mine was very comfortable. A nice touch was the provision of a jar of cookies and DIY fresh coffee in the hospitality... More
