My wife and I have just returned from a stay at the Wordsworth, to celebrate her 50th birthday. I booked by phone and explained the celebration and requested flowers and champagne in the room for our arrival. We arrived early and were informed the room wasn't quite ready, but would be worth the wait. We wandered round the village for... More

Just spent a couple of nights at the Wordsworth.....our second visit. The hotel has a lovely setting in the heart of Grasmere, surrounded by beautiful fells. The reception area with the Christmas tree and the blazing fire was most welcoming. The Staff were most helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. As for the food......my wife found her pheasant dish... More

Bedroom We stayed in room 11 - this is a lovely room, but there could be improvements: there needs to be some heating guidelines for when you are in the room. The toilet brush was broken. Gluten free biscuits were not served in the bedroom - we could not eat the ones provided. Meals We ate in the signature restaurant... More

Birthday treat for wife. Ideal location, attentive staff. The hotel is situated in the centre of Grasmere (unlike Daffodil). Rooms comfortable and the restaurant gorgeous though expensive. The highlight of the visit was our walk up to Alcock Tarn when we saw a red squirrel in the woods up behind the Church on the ascent.

Living in cumbria we have so many wonderful hotels on our doorstep but the Wordsworth is one of the best we have stayed in. From arrival to departure the staff went over and above to make us feel welcome. We were upgraded and had a huge room with the cleanest shiny bathroom with a whirlpool bath. The bed was comfortable... More

our fifth stay at The Wordsworth Hotel....our ultimate "chill out" break. As always, we cannot fault it. The staff, the rooms, the restaurant, all perfect. So relaxing, comfortable and friendly. The staff are always on hand for any requirements. We shall return, of course!

We arrived at the WORDSWORTH in a monsoon in mid December, but from then on our stay was brilliant. The hotel is warm, welcoming, and cosy. Our room was spotless and the bathroom something to behold. We had booked through Travelzoo a 'Tranquil Hotel stay with 4 course dinner.' and extras which included a cream tea, canapees before dinner, full... More

It was an exhilarating anniversary weekend at the Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere. Our anniversary being in February, it rained the entire time, but that didn't put a damper on the experience of being in a beautiful place imbued with rich history and charm. The hotel gave a boutique feel - always my preference over anything larger - and a warm... More

Went to this hotel for our pre-Christmas break. Since our last visit some of the staff have left and now the hotel is populated with cheerful and pleasant people. Very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The food was excellent with good sized portions and interesting flavours. The bedroom was clean and tidy with a modern under floor heated... More
