We visited for afternoon tea on Saturday afternoon. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and eager to help without being intrusive. When booking, I was not 100% sure about numbers, but they were flexible and patient. They were brilliant about my allergies and served my food completely separate to the rest of the group. The cakes and sandwiches were delicious.... More

We stayed in the Waterside room for two nights. What a magnificent room with lake views. It was positively baronial with its large four poster bed and ample seating area. The bathroom was spacious and the water piping hot. We couldn't fault the accommodation! As for the restaurant, the Head Chef, Ben Wilkinson, needs to be congratulated on his exquisite... More

I visited the Rampsbeck Hotel for afternoon tea as a birthday treat for my mum. The hotel was quiet although I was informed it was fully booked. We sat in the window overlooking the car park and were promptly served by very friendly staff. The sandwiches were fresh and delicious. Scones and cream were warm and the cakes were very... More

Just returned from a 2 night "gourmet" deal stay. I cannot fault this hotel. It is a large Georgian building with its own lake frontage and grounds. There are huge lounges with comfy sofas overlooking the lake and the dining room has picture windows also overlooking the lake and the Martindale fells. The 5 course gourmet meals were the best...

We've found the ideal stay for a quiet break in the Lakes. Superb food, lovely rooms and wonderful views. The staff really want you to have a peaceful, enjoyable time and work really hard to make sure you do. The hotel itself is totally unspoilt and the gardens are beautiful. You can choose a bar type menu or indulge yourself... More

We went here for afternoon tea. It was fresh, delicious and beautifully served. We were made to feel so welcome and afterwards we went for a stroll to the lake. They have their own private access to Ullswater.

My wife was looking forward to the baked rice pudding which unfortunately wasnt on the menu last night. Hey presto our waitress and the chef conjured one up for her. Our tv wasnt working well at all last... More

The hotel is beautifully located on the banks of the lake, with great views even from the garden. It is a short distance from Pooley Bridge from where you can take the steamer ride. The rooms are comfortable, even though one of our rooms was very small. But the staff changed our room without any fuss. The staff are very... More
