“Gorgeous hotel.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Stayed for just one night but will definitely be back. Immaculate hotel with lots of character. Helpful staff and amazing food. The restaurant is expensive and we didn't eat in there but the meal we had via room service was gorgeous and reasonably priced. Breakfast was also extremely good. When my husband explained he couldn't eat bread, a member of staff immediately brought him some gluten free toast without him even asking. A great night away and the location is lovely, right by the lake.

Not my first visit to the Lake District, but I wanted a quality hotel with views away from the commercialism of Windermere, with excellent food. Rampsbeck more than lived up to expectations. Yes, accommodation is a little pricey, but: the service was attentive, friendly and with the right balance of respect with informality. Food was superb and we complimented the chefs when we left on some fantastic creations. Some reviewers may complain that they didn't leave the table feeling stuffed full, well, we always left feeling really content but not uncomfortable and the variety of dishes and creativity was worthy of top London restaurants. Even the Amuse Bouches and Canapés had style and creativity to spare. The furnishings may not be to everyone's taste, but our room - Silver Crag - was amazing. Not only the view over Ullswater with balcony, but the bathroom was to die for and this Country House Hotel has had both serious money and serious attention to quality applied to its upgrade of all fittings, furnishings and decoration. No flakey paint, tarnished taps, frayed carpets or over-used bed linen here. The gardens were lovely to walk through and the views over Ullswater were stunning at all times of day and night.

So, not everything's perfect: they haven't cracked WiFi coverage in the hotel, the background instrumental music in lounges and restaurant was sometimes a little formal and unimaginative, it is on the pricey side - but you know that before you book.

We tried dinner at the Sharrow Bay over the water one evening and for quality of food, service and hotel amenities Rampsbeck wins by a Country House mile. We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: Silver Crag and the two adjacent rooms on the 1st floor are the ones to go for. Take the Continental...

We stayed for two days on our way to Scotland. Room was lovely and spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable and we had a nice view from our window.
Food was good if a bit overpriced. We enjoyed our meal in the dinning room and the second evenings' meal in the bar.
The staff were friendly and helpful. A lift would be helpful for luggage but staff did offer to carry bags for you up the stairs.
Breakfast was good.
We stayed in various hotels on our break and this was the most expensive and although it was the best place we stayed we did discuss whether it was twice as good as some of the places we stayed as it was twice the price. I would happily recommend it and if feeling flush return !

We certainly are becoming a very popular choice for travellers to break up their journey, ten minutes from the motorway and you are in a totally different world !

Four stars because of the very pleasant staff, comfortable public areas and a spacious room with nice views, spotlessly clean. The food at dinner was not to our taste turnip soup poured over a raw egg yolk didn' t do it for me and we found the rest of the food cold and at times bland but beautifully.presented. After being out walking all day we really enjoyed high tea which could have been even more aesthetically pleasing if the table had been laid with a cloth. The hotel itself has a really pleasant calm energy to it. Lovely gardens with easy access to the lake.

When I arrived at this hotel I had a slight doubt because I have been to a lot of this older places that as a hotel just aren't up to scratch and just uncared for.

This one couldn't be more different, the rooms were fantastic especially those over looking the lake. I stayed here as part of a wedding group which meant the hotel was full. This did not dilute the level of service at all. The staff were all very attentive.

The food was very good whether dinner or breakfast. The whole place just felt very relaxed in a high quality environment.

This hotel is only 10 mins from the M6 but if feels like it could be miles away.

Dear On the piste,
Many thanks for all of your lovely words posted on Trip Advisor.
It is very gratifying to read reviews such as your that reflect all the work, love and pride that goes into the Rampsbeck from not only our owners but the fantastic team here.
As you so rightly say, we really could be many miles away from the hustle and bustle of our local town of Penrith and the busy motorway, Indeed, a ten minute journey and you really could be in a different land.
Thank you again for your lovely comments,
Sonya

My wife and I spent 4 night in this wonderful hotel. The Staff is very friendly
the location is perfect.
however, I gave it 4/5 because of three reasons only:
- The food choices is limited
- No bag carrying staff( the Reception staff will help but you have to do it yourself)
- Price is little High

Room Tip: White Knott is recommended
