We have stayed several times at this lovely hotel whose staff offer a warm welcome and outstanding service. On our recent visit the pleasant atmosphere remained unchanged but unfortunately the dinner menu since our last visit has become arty in the extreme. This is no place for the hearty appetite. Someone needs to reintroduce the chef to vegetables, especially the... More

We stayed at this hotel last week. The hotel was very nice about a mile out of town. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, we were in the annex as we had our dog with us which was a bit disappointing. The breakfast was freshly cooked and very tasty. We had dinner one evening which was lovely, although a... More

We recently stayed at this lovely hotel for an overnight break. We had a dinner, bed and breakfast deal which was amazing value. Could not say enough good things about our experience. From a cream tea with Prosecco to canapé's and the 3 course meal, the food was exceptional. Our room was just the standard one but was a good... More

I was happy with the hitel and location. The staff were very good and food was not too shoddy. Only downside was I found the food a bit 'try hard'. I eat at alot of nice restaurants and some of the flavours were nearly there but not quite. All in all we have a nice time here. It could have... More

We redeemed a voucher that we got bought as a Christmas present that included dinner, bed and breakfast at The Ryebeck recently. Our standard room was small but perfectly adequate for an overnight stay although the Ryebeck seems to suffer the same issue as hundreds of other hotels around the world – appalling water pressure in the shower !

This is the first time we have visited since the name change (previously Frayer Garden). The hotel now looks more up to date. Whilst the changes to the decor in the dining room room are lovely, the one big mistake is that the tables are no longer placed to make the most of the gorgeous views of the lake for... More

Superb location in a lovely setting overlooking Lake Windermere and only a 10 mins walk downhill walk to Bowness. The staff, although young, are very attentive without being 'over friendly'. The room was immaculate with everything you need for a short break. The food was simply amazing, sourced locally and presented to a very high standard (both Evening Meal &... More

Room was great. Food was lovely and the home made breads delicious. Can't understand the people moaning about the amount of food. It was lovely not having overfilled plates. The venison was beautifully cooked. The dining room overlooks the lake. The garden has lovely outlooks and the staff were all very friendly. Loved it.

The room was large and clean, with a good-sized bathroom. The only caveat was the enormous built in bedroom drawer/dressing table unit - it was hideous and really detracted from the proportions of the room. Staff were lovely. Food at dinner was brilliant. Breakfast was fine but the quality didn't compare to that of the dinner. The hotel is quite... More

Stayed here 3/4th April after our lovely friends bought an overnight stay for us as our wedding gift and it was gorgeous. Staff were really friendly and efficient. Room was lovely, we had a ground floor room with gorgeous view over the lake ( although I expect once the trees are covered in leaves the view won't be so good... More
