Massive thanks to all the wonderful staff at the Wordsworth hotel, and an extra special mention to Laura, who made our wedding weekend absolutely amazing. Laura was there for us from first thing in the morning, until last thing in the evening. The food was outstanding, everybody commented on how nice it was. Catalan and Rachael again looked after the... More

Just returned from a weekend break. I booked this for myself and my boyfriend fairly last minute. There wasn't much availability left in Grasmere so booked this hotel and then felt a little apprehensive due to a few mixed reviews on here. Well I need not have worried, the hotel was perfect for our stay. On arrival, we were shown... More

The hotel is in beautiful grounds. It is very dated and desperately in need of a refurbishment. In places the wallpaper is ripped and so are the leather sofas. What was most shocking was the spa. Absolutely tiny changing rooms, people were queuing as there are only 2 curtained areas. Most of the lockers didn't work and it was dirty.... More

We stayed here for three nights on the 17th-20th August. We had a bed and breakfast deal. The breakfast was amazing, hotel staff were friendly, hotel was clean, we had a garden/fell view room which was lovely. However, we did have an issue with the room in that it was sooooo hot! Even with the air conditioning, window open and... More

We visted Wordsworth Hotel for a wedding, the wedding itself was lovely! I would give 5 stars for the beautiful garden and view. However for the price the rooms were a bit disappointing. Other family members had no sleep because of how hot it was, which wasn't helped by the window in one room that didn't open. When we ordered... More

Stayed for three nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. Having been before several times we had been sent an excellent offer. The room had a village view and was excellent. Bed as big as a football field, a superb bathroom. Everything was clean and as we expected. The food in the Signature restaurant was superb; both breakfast where the choice... More

Spa facilities are quite small and getting ready for a revamp. There were no gowns available and the hot pool had no drinking water facilities. The massage was excellent though and the therapist lovely and helpful. We booked afternoon tea which was very tasty and presented well but the bar staff were very unhelpful and unfriendly. Our daughter did not... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are sorry to hear you won't be visiting again. Robes and slippers for the spa days are available at the spa itself. Whilst we would have been happy to offer the prosecco to another adult, and we would have been happy to organise an alternative for your daughter, had... More

We dropped in on the off chance while visiting a very busy Grasmere, and were welcomed into a very welcoming and comfortable lounge overlooking beautiful gardens, even with our little dog in tow. The afternoon tea although quite expensive was delicious and very filling, and service was polite but not intrusive. Overall would highly recommend if you are in Grasmere... More

A lovely hotel in a perfect location: we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a superior room which was fantastic. The drinks from the hotel were very nice and not too expensive: breakfast was delicious with a varied choice-service was also excellent. We popped over the road to Tweedie's Bar for something to eat and a few drinks. The... More

Forget the walking, chill and just relax, admire the views then when it gets to much the pool and sauna will take you to that tranquil place you need to be. Yes a great place to explore the middle lakes could be a bonus, but not for us this time. The staff were very good and no problems with any... More
