This was booked by my partner as a birthday surprise on 20th March through secret escapes but he has found out since it is slightly cheaper to book direct with the hotel. We stayed in room 21 which was a lovely clean modern room and had a beautiful view of the lake, although I think in summer the trees would... More

This was a return visit to this hotel as the the last one was brilliant in every respect. Unfortunately this experience was far from satisfactory, The staff as previous were excellent and the rooms spotless, beds comfy and a warm welcome from reception. Since our last visit the chef has changed, the previous chef produced meals of excellent quality and... More

Lovely peaceful hotel overlooking lake Windermere. Comfortable sitting rooms and warm welcome. The tasting menu and its accompanying wines was delicious - a real treat. My only reservation was being expected to stay in our room until the appointed dinner hour which would have been fine if in a superior room but ours was small and had only 1 chair.... More

Booked overnight dinner, bed and breakfast break with secret escapes. From the second we arrived, we were made to feel welcome, all the staff are very attentive and professional. The room was a lake view, although not on the shore we were treated to a view of the hotel garden, Windermere and the fells beyond. The room was very well... More

My partner Tom treated me to Sunday lunch at Ryebeck today. The hotel has a luxurious feel and the staff treat you very well. the food choice was limited but fantastic. we would recommend the Salt Cod starter and the Roast beef dinner. Great location with views down to the lake. Only suggestion to hotel, to have more uplifting background... More

Just returned from a short visit to the hotel and area. Chose the hotel using Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Location was just what we wanted, quiet with beautiful views (although you could walk into Bowness). We chose one of the superior rooms to ensure we got the view over Windermere. Upon arrival the reception staff were great with... More

I booked a nights stay en route to Scotland via booking.com for £116 which included a three course dinner and cooked breakfast. On arrival we were taken to our room which was cosy but clean and well stocked with tea, coffee and toiletries. It also had direct access to the garden as it was on the ground floor. Dinner was...

Stayed overnight with friends on DBB basis and really cannot fault this hotel. Wonderful location and building, decorated to a high standard with a tasteful mix of traditional and contemporary styles. Superb service from the moment we arrived by every member of staff. We had the tasting menu with wine, go for it, very accomplished food at a very reasonable... More
