Overall a very nice place, and the one or two issues I had were responded too well. Very nice setting, public areas well set out, clean, and room was very good. My one issue was the ground floor room I had was next to a kitchen walk way, but the manager told me this was being changed, so fair enough,...

We have been to the Ryebeck six times. From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel special. Nothing disappoints, the hotels position is excellent, just 15-20 mins walk into Bowness. The ambiance is just welcoming, the rooms comfortable, with big beds, and super bathrooms. But the food!!!! well it is amazing. You feel like you are on Masterchef....

We had a fantastic meal just before Christmas, the staff were all very friendly and most helpful. The hotel is a good mix of traditional comfortable lounge and a dining room with a fantastic view of the beautiful surroundings.

Dinner was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat although...

A lovely, dog friendly retreat for New Year's Eve! Very friendly and profession staff, good location and beautiful views. Roughly a 20 minute walk from the centre of bowness and set in it's own grounds so still a quiet spot.
