A friend of mine recommended this hotel to us as we go the lakes regularly and he promised that we would not go anywhere else after trying it. He was not wrong. We arrived early and left the car and went off walking. Took the wrong road back and missed afternoon tea by 5 minutes but the receptionist told us... More

The Hotel is a fabulous place for a short break and visiting the Lakes. The Chef is one of the best and the food is out of this world. Well worth a visit. There are plenty of offers but we would stay if there weren't any. Planning another visit real soon

Nice room with a patio area & views of the lake. Homemade cookies in the room & that bath house toiletries were a nice touch. Only gripe was it was 2 beds pushed together which I hate 😁. The food was amazing & actually really filling despite the small looking portions. Staff were very friendly & helpful. I would definitely... More

After seeing an offer on one of the deal sites for £139, we rang up to see if we could use this on the bank holiday. They said there is an extra charge but we have an executive room with Lake view available for £199 with your meals. So we had a look online and the executive rooms looked nice... More

We stayed here a couple of yrs ago when the hotel was updated and loved it, especially the food, which was amazing. We decided to stay again , the hotel is still lovely, great location, room nice, lovely clean white towels and bed linen with some good products in the bathroom. We had done a really tough, hilly and long... More

We have just spent a night at the ryebeck. It has a lovely feel to it with a great location, about 1 mile walk down to the boats. We stopped in the cottage apartments which is separate from the hotel. The rooms are spacious with a great shower. Breakfast was very nice with a good selection. I would recommend this... More

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

Had a lovely 3 night break to celebrate a milestone birthday very recently. Room and decor very pleasant and clean. Quality bathroom and fittings. Cosy and quiet. Very welcoming on arrival. Has just the small hotel feel we were looking for. Staff all very friendly and helpful. The evening food was of the 'haute/nouvelle cuisine' variety and we loved it.... More
