Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review.

We seem to have ticked all the boxes so thanks also for being so complimentary.

I do have a current theory though that this fabulous weather is making every stay here in the Lake District just that little bit better!!!!

I do hope we will be able to welcome you back if you are ever planning a return trip to Ambleside.

Kind regards

Gillian Lane

A weekend walking in the Lake District. Stayed at the Fisherbeck for two nights. Very good accommodation, great breakfast, and short walk into town for bars & restaurants. Car parking on the road wasn't a problem and Fisherbeck gave me a parking disc. My room was a single, which was small but perfectly comfortable.

Stayed: July 2013, travelled solo

So very glad you had a good weekend away walking in the Lake District.

Our single room was refurbished last year and although not a large room it is a great favourite with our loan travelers who appreciate having a very good sized full en-suite bathroom.

Hope we'll see you again if you are heading this way.

Kind regards

Cracking Hotel in a spot on location with spotless modern room & bathroom.
We found the staff very friendly & attentive. Discovered a nice birthday suprise of Champagne when returned to room. Lovely breakfast with great choice.
Will defenitely return.

Room Tip: Garden rooms & first floor rooms with balconies. Spa bath/shower bathrooms of good size.

Thank you very much indeed for writing your review and we so pleased that you had an enjoyable time away for your birthday.

So glad you enjoyed our breakfasts and that the staff were helpful. We will pass your comments along to them. I know they really appreciate the fact that people think they are doing a great job. We certainly couldn't manage without them.

Enjoy this fabulous summer.

We looked forward to this holiday for a whole year and had another wonderful stay with Ray and Gillian and were certainly not disappointed! We arrived on 6th July and spent 2 incredible weeks relaxing at this lovely hotel, enjoying its comfort and beautiful surroundings. We were greeted with some bubbly on arrival, a lovely gesture! Room 2 has wonderful views from its balcony and is superbly presented throughout with a luxurious bathroom. Breakfast is always a delight, with some lovely 'breakfast specials' and attention to every detail by the great staff team. We absolutely adore holidaying in Cumbria and have booked this wonderful hotel again for another 2 weeks next year - can't wait!!

I think that the most incredible thing about your 2 week stay with us this year was the quite unreal hot weather that we had and my memories of you are watching you sit, quite often in the shade reading away for hours on end and being totally relaxed. That is exactly what a holiday should be all about, interspersed with activities as and when you feel inclined, and the Lake District certainly has plenty of activities to choose from.

It will be lovely to see you back again next year, trying out Woodside Cottage.

Have a great year and make the most of this weather while it lasts. It's been a very long time since we had it so good. Here's hoping for 2014.

All the very best to you both.

Gill & Ray

This is a property which thinks its a hotel, but in fact it's a pretentious bed and breakfast. We would not recommend it to anyone who is used to hotel accommodation. There is no help with luggage when you book in and very little attention to guest requirements.

Thank you very much indeed for writing your review.

I have learnt over the many years we have been here at The Fisherbeck that we don't please everybody all the time despite our best efforts. Our front of house staff are trained to ask everybody who checks in if they would like assistance with their luggage and I would say that this is done almost always so I do pass on my most sincere apologies if you slipped through the net. It will certainly be a subject we will address at our next training meeting.

Your comments have been noted and action will be taken.
Thank you again.
Kind regards
Gillian Lane
