This was our first visit to the Ryebeck, after we'd decided to take up a special online deal which included afternoon tea, breakfast and dinner. It really is a lovely spot, retaining a certain old school charm even though it's undergone recent modernising refurbishments. Our rooms were very comfortable and well furnished, with modern bathrooms, tea/coffee making facilities and flatscreen TVs. We enjoyed tea, delicious homemade scones and prosecco on the spacious balcony overlooking the lawns and the lake itself. The four course dinner in the light and airy dining room was excellent, with fresh locally sourced ingredients. The level of service is worthy of special mention: all the staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, making it an even more memorable stay. The hotel is clearly well managed, from the selection and training of staff, to the imaginative menu and excellent food, to the immaculately maintained - and extensive - lawns, shrubs and flower beds. Walking into Bowness takes about 20 minutes on the high road, whilst the more attractive lakeside path will take about 30 minutes to reach the main harbour area. A taxi back is less than £5. Highly recommended - we'll certainly be back.
