We attended a friends wedding here in November. The location is amazing, the food was superb and the staff were very friendly & professional. The only thing that let it down was the room which had not been refurbished so it was looking "tired". I believe that they are in the middle of refurbishing all of the rooms so once... More

Went here for a long weekend, also booked the taster menu for our first evening. On arrival they had lost the details of our meal booking, they did manage to 'fit us in' although not overly friendly with it. The room itself was good, spacious with a good layout and bed was comfy. The hotel restaurant was busy and service... More

My husband booked a surprise 50th birthday treat for me at the Wordsworth Hotel and all I can say is it was amazing. On arrival a lovely lady called Sue took us up to the Wordsworth Wilson Suite which was breathtaking with views of the garden and surrounding mountain views to die for. We ate in the Signature restaurant which... More

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary as part of a deal we got online. The area the hotel is set in speaks for itself. The hotel is lovely if you like old quirky hotels that have been done up to a high standard but still posses those quirky qualities. The food was first class. Staff were lovely. Would go back.

This hotel really could be wonderful, but although we were on a "special" which was supposedly around half price,we experienced quite a few niggling defiecencies .Reception on arrival was lovely and Susan and the young gentleman could not have been more welcoming. Further visits to reception were a let down in as much as the other young lady could have... More

We booked a night here for my daughters birthday, travelling all of 16 miles for the occasion. There were four of us, we were given room 7, the Woodrow Wilson suite. This was a stunningly beautiful room overlooking the fells and the extensive hotel gardens. Our other room was room 14, with a lovely sitting area overlooking the front of... More

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
