What a great find! Conveniently located with a short walk into town. We stayed in one of the renovated rooms to the front of the hotel which was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Supplied with filter coffee, a range of teas, hot chocolate and homemade shortbread biscuits which were replenished daily. Nothing was too much trouble for Anna, Sandra, Greg... More

The hotel is situated in a beautiful spot, just outside Windermere town centre. The seating area outside the dining room has a beautiful view of the lake. We couldn't get over how quiet it was - so peaceful. The room was lovely and clean. The one let down was the bed. It felt like it was two beds pushed together... More

I initially visited the Ryebeck back in March this year with my partner, we booked through the Living Social website. The stay included a two night stay, bed and breakfast and dinner. We stayed in the "Jolly Good Room", very clean and modern with a lovely patio which had a lovely sun trap. The food was amazing and the drink... More

We have just returned from a one night stay taken as a overnight bed and breakfast with dinner deal from one of the deal sites. The hotel is in a lovely setting overlooking the lake about 5 mins drive outside Bowness- unless there is another route of which we were unaware ,I wouldn't risk walking into Bowness via the main...

We first stayed at the Ryebeck in February. This visit was booked last minute through one of those web sites, so my niggle about the room is our fault for not looking at the hotel web site. Our room was at the top of the stairs on the right. It had a standard double bed (I have a 6 foot... More

Me and my husband had a wonderful 3 nights here at The Ryebeck. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special by every staff member and nothing was too much trouble.

My husband and I stayed at The Ryebeck as we were attending a wedding at The Linthwaite House Hotel and did not want to pay the extortionate prices of the Linthwaite for 2 nights.

Brilliant hotel, lovely room, exceptional staff and very tasty food. Good value for money. The hotel is very clean, very quiet and would definitely visit again. The hotel is brilliant for couples and we had a very relaxing few days.

The place itself didn't do much for me or my husband, but the grounds were beautiful, the staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. We brought our dog, and he very much enjoyed running about the grounds while we watched the sunset. The rooms weren't much unfortunately, so that was a disappointment. Quite small, a bit musty smelling,... More
