My first visit to The Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere. I took advantage of their special offer with 25 per cent off . A great package that also included their 4 course meal in their signature restuarant. All in all, a very cosy clean hotel with friendly staff who see to your every need. Food served both at breakfast and on... More

Many thanks for your feedback. By way of an update The Wordsworth Hotel changed ownership in January and investment is already underway to address a few of the points you have highlighted.

The hotel is situated in the centre of Grasmere and has plenty of parking, which is needed, as Grasmere's parking areas are limited. Our room (15) was spacious and luxurious with a modern, contemporary bathroom. It was at the front of the hotel and overlooked the village. The food was local and fresh and I would recommend the Signature restaurant's... More

Having just spent 3 days at this hotel, the food, staff and accommodation was superb. We ate in the Signature restaurant and The Dove Bistro. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the ale in the bistro. Food in both restaurants was excellent. Weather was sleet and snow but that did not stop us looking around. Grasmere is quite small but full of... More

We felt like we were personal guests at a New Year house party. They got everything right from the mulled wine and mince pie on arrival, afternoon tea every afternoon, cocktails and canapes every evening, and the food was spectacular from the 5 course tasting evening onwards. When we walked in to the room for the New Years Eve celebration... More
