Good location with parking. Easy walk into town or the other way to catch the ferry. Hotel was clean with friendly staff. Great selection and good quality breakfast.
was outstanding. Superior room fabulous but a shame it was the closest room to the main road
Breakfast is excellent Very friendly staff Good location ample free on site parking
Room a bit small
Everything, location, quality of accommodation, food, staff and the friendliness of both the owners, great local recommendations for restaurants (already booked some of those for our next stay in May)
nothing....perhaps a bit more sun!!
excellent, friendly, efficient staff. Very good breakfast
The staff and owners were very helpful and the hotel was nice.
The bed was a little uncomfortable it sloped to the middle.
Staff tried to sort shower immediately I reported it. Were unable to do so and gave us a free upgrade to compensate.
Shower would not produce any hot water.
Very friendly staff, good location, lovely room, quality breakfast, really nice owners... What more do we have to say? Perfect weekend as me and girlfriend got engaged
Location was excellent with decent car park. Room very clean. Breakfast nice. Staff friendly especially the lady at front desk and the young girls serving the breakfast.
Room was small and shower cubical very small, it would be difficult to have a good wash if you were on the larger size, we have a corner shower at home and chose the next size up - 10 cm really does make all the difference! Our room was at the back and there was a lot of banging and clanging on Sunday morning from approx 7 - 8.30 am which actually spoiled our stay because it was a weekend break away from a very busy work schedule and there's no need to make this much noise at that time on a Sunday morning, my neighbours don't start clanging until after 9 am on the weekends. I would only stay again if i could afford one of the larger front facing rooms, you expect some traffic noise but not clanging so early on a weekend and for so long, so don't choose a basic double because i guess these are the small rooms at the back unless you like to be up before 7 am every day!
We loved the room we had one of the luxury rooms we can't wait till the next time we can stay here x
There was nothing we didn't like at the fisherbeck
Comfortable room and very good breakfast.
Wi-fi intermittent. Room hot even with window open so air conditioning would have been good.
The Welcome and help by the young lady on Reception. The Parking Good breakfasts
We had a top floor room and that was a little difficult for us
Location is excellent, only a few minutes walk from the main bus stop and the 555 stops right outside the property. Breakfast was very good, staff was helpful. Nice day lounge for rainy weather reading. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed the service we received at breakfast from the waiting staff. The breakfast was of a very high standard with an option of vegetarian and also lighter options, such as, salmon and pouched eggs. The location was also good, just a short walk into Ambleside itself.
Parking lovely breakfast bar friendly staff room and bathroom accessories
I should have upgraded my room to overlooking the main road (frontage).
Loved the garden room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Wonderful breakfast. Had a good few days break.
Some guests had to double park as the hotel was full.
Location. Waitresses at breakfast were excellent.
The room was too small and smelled musty. Reception staff were unfriendly and unapproachable. We had disturbed sleep from a hot room, noisy guests, and outdoor noise. One night we didn't get to sleep until 4am because of the Lakeland 100/50 competitors going past our room loudly with no consideration. The room was too hot with no ventilation and no fan provided. The elderly male member of staff was surly and particularly unfriendly. Staff seemed overworked which affected their customer service and overall demeanour. This does not include the lovely waitresses at breakfast.The car park was way too small. The Decor was very outdated. We felt we were tolerated by staff and not welcomed. When checking out we weren't asked about our stay by the male member of staff and felt rushed to pay up. He seemed only interested in our money and moving the cars from the ridiculously packed car park. The WI-FI was poor as we could not receive it from our room. Overall would recommend avoiding staying here.
breakfast fantastic. Views fantastic. Owners fantastic
Room 1 shower very small
The staff were fantastic throughout and very attentive especially at breakfast. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel was very clean with good amenities.
Unfortunately the room we were given was quite small and the en-suite had a small shower enclosure (although it did have a decent shower head). That said, for a one night stay it was acceptable but we would not have liked to be in that room for a longer stay.
