Friendly proprietor, excellent bedroom, good breakfast.
Breakfast Location Friendly and knowledgable owner
One or two plug sockets in need of repair
Great breakfast s
Lack of good parking
The breakfast was superb, beautifully cooked. The room was comfortable and immaculately clean. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The central location was excellent.
No off street parking
Alan, our host, was absolutely lovely and our room was really clean and comfortable. It had a wonderful view out of the window and breakfast every morning was just right the amount and all freshly made. Couldn't have asked for better and would highly recommend to anyone else looking for a central base for exploring the Lake District.
Fantastic view from bedroom window. Very good breakfast . Owner very welcoming and helpful.
Lack of information about area in room eg. emergency numbers ,local GP ,pharmacy etc . Restaurants and pubs . Needs new background music at breakfast .Three boyzone tracks on a loop not good every morning .
Comfortable beds, clean room, excellent breakfast, good shower
Restricted time for breakfast (8.30-9), same two songs on a loop played every morning at breakfast, negative attitude of b&b owner
Brilliant breakfasts cooked to order. Lovely room tastefully decorated.
Noise from being on the main road.
A lovely b&b with a wonderfully helpful and friendly owner, Allan. Great location, beautiful room and excellent breakfast. Would definitely stay again.
Nothing to dislike.
Good food. Good place. Nice hosts
A bit cold at night
Was a very lovely place to stay. Even thought it was not close to were I want to see with some help I did get to see what I wanted to see. People where very helpful.
The B&B is in an excellent situation having great walks within a short distance and the local pubs and resturants only minutes away.
Although staff were aware that the TV remote did not work and the shower door jammed they did nothing about it only suggested that we use the buttons that were on top of the wall mounted TV and when using the shower push the door with your foot.
Loved the room decor, very friendly host, ideal location. Would definitely stay again!!
Everything! Alan was lovely from the minute we arrived and made us feel very relaxed. The room was very comfortable & clean. The breakfasts were amazing! Proper home cooked food! Coffee was amazing also! Would definitely stay again!

Welcoming and friendly. My single room and ensuite were decorated in a modern, relaxing style. warm room, plenty of hot water for showers and a hairdryer. Breakfast was delicious with a choice of hot dishes as well as cereals, juice, toast, fruit and yogurts. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Rysdale and would highly recommend it to others
