Stayed for just one night 7 March, our third visit. As good as ever. Dinner delightful, if anything even better than last time. We were in Hallin, lovely room, very comfy. Breakfast excellent. We will return.

We have stayed here on an annual basis for around five years and have reported on the quality of Rampsbeck. Last week's stay proved to be even better than in the past. The place from our point of view is now close to perfection. If you want spas, swimming pools and gymnasiums you probably won't agree. But if you are looking for top quality rooms, spacious public rooms, food that now really is top class then look no further. All this in the most fabulousl lakeside position set in beautifully kept gardens. Rampsbeck is run in an understated but highly efficient manner by very friendly staff. It's only ten minutes from junction 40 of the M6 but feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle of modern life. We cannot praise it too much.

Room Tip: The superior rooms overlooking the lake are fabulous with outstanding views. Also the half board opt...

Dear JohnWHuddersfield,
Many thanks to you for taking the time and trouble to post your third review on Trip Advisor .
I am delighted to read that your annual visits to us just keep on getting better and better [And closer to perfection !! ], we do make changes at Ramsbeck but these changes are for guest's benefits and your kind words do reflect this, thank you.
It's interesting that you stay in different rooms / cottages when you visit, I personally think this is a great idea and one that I do recommend to guests when they book with us, all of our 19 rooms are individually decorated and all have different views etc and sometimes it is good to try various rooms so that you can reach your favourite one.
We are, as you rightly state only ten minutes from the M6 and hustle and bustle of Penrith town but yet when you are sat in our gardens or on your balcony and look around you at the stunning scenery that fact is really hard to believe. I have said in the past we are so lucky to have the view we do from our "office window " !!
Thank you once again for all of your kind comments, we look forward to welcoming you both back next year,
Kindest regards
Sonya

I have visited the Rampsbeck annually for the last 7 years. Purpose of visit has always been to relax with friends and it has never disappointed. Setting is spectacular the rooms with views of Ullswater are stunning. First class dining experience. Tried to book again this year - but I am afraid the secret is out - it was fully booked.

Room Tip: Suites overlooking the lake are spectacular

What a shame that you couldn't book with us for your preferred date but just between me and you we do have availability for lots of other dates - and some fantastic Special Break prices to match - but as I said keep that one quiet !!!
Hopefully we shall see you in the not too distant future,

On 23rd December my wife and held our wedding reception at the Rampsbeck Hotel. On what was an horrendous day weather wise, gale force winds and torrential rain, The Rampsbeck Hotel provided the most stunning and special venue we could ever have asked for. From the moment we arrived the night before to the time we departed every single aspect of our wedding was made truly special. The staff, food and bedrooms were outstanding in every single way. When we walked in soaking wet through after our ceremony Monica said to us both "The house is yours now" and it truly did feel like our own special house for 24 hours. Every single one of our guests without exception commented their amazing experiences of The Rampsbeck Hotel, For all the staff, in particualr Sonya, Monica, Adrian and Michelle nothing, and we mean nothing, was too much trouble. Ben the head chef, produced the most amazing wedding breakfast topped off with some amazing wine, port and cheese and being infront of the fires in the amazing rooms the hotel has to offer was a perfect way to spend our winter wedding with close family and friends

We will always look back on our wedding day as the most amazing day of our lives, made special by the amazing Rampsbeck Hotel and all of its people. We feel so lucky we found this place 5 hours away from our home and we will be back year upon year. We thank you all.

Tara and David

Stayed for one night for my husbands 40th birthday. Wonderful helpful staff who couldn't do enough to help. Food at dinner not really to my liking but I think that's personal taste not because there was anything wrong with it. Breakfast was fabulous. Beautiful hotel we loved it.

The first thing to hit me when we entered the hotel room was how fresh it smelled as we walked in. Nothing overpowering. Just a nice fresh smell as though everything had been through the washing machine.

The room was very large with a sitting area and bathroom around 2.5 x 4m. All finishes seemed to be thick and felt luxurious.

Dinner was a little bit of a let down, however, nonetheless tasty. Our wish to ensure all food was thoroughly cooked for safety during pregnancy was taken on aboard. So much so that the chef said we my wife should not eat a certain dish due to the raw egg content.

All in all a very relaxing stay in a nice setting with very accommodating and friendly hotel staff.

Dear AW_LK,
Thank you for posting a review on Trip Advisor, we do appreciate it.
As is the norm your review has been passed onto the team who are delighted by your comments.
We have a brilliant House keeping team led by Nina. Many of our team have been with us for quite some time now and work diligently to ensure all the bedrooms and public rooms are up to, if not exceeding the standard expected. They are, and rightly so, very proud of their department within the hotel.
Chef is very happy to discuss any dining requirements to ensure full enjoyment of any meal, please do just ask any member of the team.
Many thanks once again for all of your kind words,
Kind regards
Sonya
