The default breakfast service didn't start until 08.30 which may be a problem if you are looking for an early start (business, long fell-walk etc.). However, the staff were able to accommodate me and serve me breakfast a little earlier for which I was very grateful.
A great location a few minutes walk from the centre of Ambleside. Excellent, professional breakfast service. Clean and comfortable room with a smart en-suite. Good wifi in room. Good on-site parking. Good value. Attentive staff.

My only comment we had a garden room 10. We have stayed here before but this time the bed was wobbly and needs looking at . Also just a suggestion as the garden rooms are so big and have king size beds wouldn't it be a good idea to have super king or 2 twins that can be made into a super king or just left as twin beds? Average size is fine in a king size bed but over 6 foot superking would be better .
This is our second visit . Warm welcome the staff are excellent. The breakfast wonderful and location ideal .

Room slightly compact but very comfortable.
Nice welcome with a pot of tea. Immaculate decor. Excellent breakfast, well thought out menu. Wonderful view of the Coniston fells. Price.

traffic outside the bedroom and an office opposite, the window has no lace curtains so you must draw the night curtains to change.

Great location with ample parking, with a short stroll into Ambleside. Staff friendly and accommodating, great breakfast.

As a couple with an infant child I found the facility lacking in terms of pushchair access. It was rather difficult. Two of us had to literally lift either ends of the pushchair whenever we were leaving the facility and coming back. The television in the room is extremely tiny and as we went in November and the time was really cold it would seem as if the heater is turned on and off at a certain time. We woke up at about 5 am freezing and the baby was also shivering. I also didn't like along the parking area as there were bits of junk along the side and the internal entrance could do with an update.
We loved the bathroom and the bed was really comfortable. It was clean, the staff was friendly and at breakfast they could not have been more attentive. The variety there was also very good with a special compliment on the rum butter.

Leaving to come home!!
Everyone was so friendly and nothing was a bother to them. The young lady on reception when we arrived even helped carry our luggage to our room. The waitresses at breakfast were so attentive. They did everything but eat our breakfast!!! Decor in hotel was beautiful - a lot of thought gone into it.

The only fault I can find with it was the wifi in our room was not as good as we would have liked.
The Hotel was centrally located which was ideal for us as we liked to go out into Ambleside in the evenings. The staff were freindly and polite at all times, the food was excellent. The room was clean, tidy and very well furnished. The bathroom was excellent with shower and bath. All round extremely pleased and would definitley go back again.

Everything. We have been going to the Fisherbeck for many years which is testimony to how much we like it. Perfectly placed for access to the Lake District. Very comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast. Staff always pleased to see us and very helpful. Have absolutely no criticisms whatsoever.

Nothing it was all good.
This is a quality establishment. From the greeting with a cup of coffee, to the gourmet breakfast of excellent local fare, to the beautifully appointed rooms, to the fine common areas - not forgetting the excellent attention of the host & his staff - we totally enjoyed a relaxing, first rate stay at the Fisherbeck
