The Ryebeck Country House & Restaurant, Windermere
A wonderful place - and a great restaurant
The Ryebeck is simply a wonderful place. My wife and I arrived in the dark and were tired from our journey. The staff were very warm and helpful. The weather was not kind during our three night stay so, we actually ended up eating dinner three nights in the restaurant at the hotel and even had lunch one day. The restaurant was a wonderful surprise. The chef is adventurous and talented. I didn't see a lot rave reviews for the restaurant, so - allow me to add one. We had a "superior" room on a corner. Our view was over the woods but it was October and the leaves were changing so that was still a lovely view. The room was large and decorated very nicely with windows on two sides. In better weather the terrace offers a view of the lake, but the hotel is not on the lake per se. We did have one complaint. The hotel is about a mile or so from Bownes-on-Windemere down a pretty but dark lane. When approaching the hotel at night it is VERY hard to spot it before you pass it AND the sign for the hotel is oddly placed i.e. it is not by the actual driveway for the hotel so... my wife and I usually passed it the first time. There is no good place to turnaround and I was reluctant to make a three point turn on a narrow, hilly lane in the dark for fear someone was smash into me in the night.

Food is Great but that is it
No Wi-Fi in the rooms only in the lobby area. Cable options are very limited so don't expect much on TV if you watch that at night. The hot water in the showers is very spotty. Sometimes it works and others times it is very cold. We had a remote control issue that could not get resolved. Breakfast and dinners are excellent. Too far to walk to the down town area. Rooms are small. Our least favorite of hotels in our two weeks in the UK.

True country manor overlooking lake
This country manor 2 miles outside Windermere is a real gem. Outstanding food both at breakfast and dinner. Quite a beautiful setting. Manor is luxurious. Our room was a bit small, but price was quite fair. Helpful staff. You should have GPS as it is out of town.

Only a couple of things set it down really was the terrible shower. Another thing was the really soft bed.

Very Good8.0
Great restaurant, friendly staff. Needs updating.
Lovely old country house hotel near Bowness Windermere. Welcoming and friendly staff. Lovely lake views from the lounge and dining room, also I believe some bedrooms. We spent three nights midweek in early November, we had lovely weather and found this hotel perfectly positioned for us to enjoy the beauty of the Lake District. Disappointed with our room overall. It was very small and the bathroom was old and cramped with no ventilation and an extractor that didn’t do the job. Although our room was serviced daily, the carpet had not been vacuumed properly and felt ‘dirty’ to walk on. I think that the original description on your website gave us a false impression of the room we booked.
