Our drive took much longer than expected but the hotel staff were very reassuring that all would be fine when we arrived. It was. They upgraded us to a beautiful room with a view of the lake. Dinner was simply outstanding. Service was also excellent. We slept well, had a walk by the lake, then a great breakfast. Everything we... More

My husband and I have recently spent 4 nights at The Ryebeck and had a wonderful time. We stayed in a ground floor room at our request and we weren't disappointed. We had a small patio with garden furniture so were able to sit outside in the sunshine. Both dinner and breakfast were amazing, the food was presented beautifully and... More

After spending a week in the countryside of the lake district it was nice to finish up in this lovely hotel. We were traveling with our very large giant Schnauser, the room was perfect with senior door onto the patio, but still very nicely furnished and comfortable for us. Food was amazing, staff very polite, friendly but still efficient and... More

We had a great night away at the Ryebeck. Beautiful room with a lovely large bathroom. We had a dinner, bed and breakfast deal which also had free use of a nearby hotel's spa facilities and a trip on one of the Windermere cruises. Such a good offer! The food was very, very nice. We could have whatever we wanted... More

My husband an I have just spent a night at The Ryebeck, wish it was longer! Checked in a little before 2pm, and as our room wasn't quite ready we were invited to have tea on the terrace. We were shown the bar and lounge area, and the dining room, before we went out onto the terrace, which has a... More

We had a nice stay; really enjoyed the view, lake-front room and breakfast. Nice that we could book for just one night on a weekend. Friendly staff. Would have been nice to have local maps and restaurant suggestions handy ... We eventually got the info we needed, but it was from scratch.

Really nice stay with husband and baby. Great service from check in to check out and really appreciated the European lady who checked us in, even bringing the high chair outside for us so we could feed baby dinner alfresco! Wifi doesn't work in the rooms and the room, despite being upgraded, was still one of the smallest rooms we... More
