“Sheer Class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

We stayed three nights last weekend, our Nephew had his wedding celebration on the Saturday, but we stayed Friday Saturday & Sunday.
The views of the lake and gardens are outstanding, in both rain and shine. The fine dining never disappointed but the Ace in the pack are the staff, unobtrusive, elegant and understated. I have stayed in far more expensive places, with ego's and star recommendations to match - they could all learn something from Rampsbeck.

Room Tip: Try Martindale or Ullswater

We had our wedding last Saturday - and it was wonderful from start to finish. The food and overall service was excellent and all our guests thought the same too. An unforgettable day. Rooms were immaculate. Location is stunning at the side of lake ullswater.We cannot thank them enough for making everything go like clockwork.

Room Tip: we stayed in silver crag - the bridal suite - stunning

This is a wonderful place.
The hotel is beautifully decorated. The staff are friendly and seem happy in their work, this really adds to the relaxed atmosphere.
We stayed 2 nights to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and enjoyed excellent food. The dinner menu changed each night.
The setting by the Lake is stunning but the gardens are also very beautiful. The gardener must be congratulated. Not a weed to be seen!
The attention to detail was evident everywhere you looked around the hotel.

Cost, not the cheapest but it does represent excellent value for money because of the very high standards set in all areas. We are already thinking of another visit.
I think this is my new favourite hotel!

Room Tip: A Lake view.

Spent one night in this splendid hotel which was very traditional. The welcome was very warm and we were given a tour and brief history of the estate. We declined the Al a Carte dinner and had a very enjoyable bar meal that was well presented although a little top heavy on price.
Breakfast not a buffet but ordered at the table which proved a little slow. The room was well appointed but as a booking.com special we were allocated the smallest room but it was very comfortable and the bathroom was recently renovated and very nicely finished.
My only complaint which is a basic requirement in this day and age is INTERNET, it was non-existent anywhere in the Hotel. I complained and was told to sit in a specific chair in the lounge for the best reception!!!!!!! Even that failed. Sorry but no internet no return visit.

Room Tip: Wherever you can find internet!

I brought my partner here on the 24 July to celebrate his birthday.
We tend to favour country house hotels in the area and had recently retuned to Sharrow Bay after it went down in our estimations...fabulous now.

We had been to the Rampsbeck twice last year and really enjoyed so were looking forward to our lunch.
We left Hungry !

Food is very artistically presented and delicious.
Starter gorgeous but tiny ...more room for the main course we thought !
Main course was a small piece of Pollock with minuscule cauliflower florets and No potatoes ! All delicious but not enough food for a rabbit !
Pudding more substantive ...probably as we had eaten our way through two bread baskets and the waitress noticed.
Disappointing !

The setting is beautiful.
The Staff are excellent...attentive without being intrusive.

Come Monsieur Chef...Feed your customers !

Gorgeous hotel in fantastic surroundings. Friendly staff. We had stayed in a superior standard room which had a super comfy bed. Nice wee touches in the room like fresh fruit. Didn't have dinner in hotel as we weren't looking for a 5 course dinner on this occasion and was slightly disappointed by the lack of choice on the bar menu. Would definitely stay here again.
