Lovely hotel. Amazing food, staff very helpful, room spacious. The breakfast was one of the best I've tried, the best black pudding. It was freezing but would love to come and see the grounds more in the summer :)

I cant commend this hotel enough. We travelled up to celebrate my wife's birthday with a couple of friends and the hotel staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, particularly the general manager, his deputy and the lady on accounts who had to divide our bar bill between our rooms! The hotel itself is very elegant without been over... More

Superb service throughout. The staff went over and above what would be expected. Room was spot on, clean and quiet. Food was excellent, both dinner and breakfast (breakfast was not a buffet - so far more relaxing).

Amazing view from our room. We had dinner with wine, few cocktails, breakfast in the morning then Sunday dinner in the afternoon and it was all amazing. The staff are all really friendly and helpful. We have been a few times now and every time I would say it gets a bit better.

New chef at is excellent. We have dined at most of the notes Cumbrian restaurants and Rybeck beats them all! We have stayed several times previously and it just gets better each visit. We are looking forward to returning later this month.

Attentive staff who provide excellent customer service and pride themselves on attention to detail. The icing on the cake is the most MAGNIFICENT food it was the best I have ever... More
