We have just returned from the Wordsworth Hotel and although parts of the hotel seem to be in need of a bit of T.L.C,there are other parts that more than make up for this. The food was excellent and the staff made us feel really welcome. A special word of thanks to a young waiter called Daniel,who served us at... More

We booked a 2 nights stay at The Wordsworth hotel as a birthday treat for my wife. We have stayed at the Wordsworth hotel before and always enjoy the friendly atmosphere and staff. The rooms are ok bit tight for space. We used the pool and spa which were very good. On the second night we had dinner in the... More

We booked a 2 night stay in a superior room (more expensive) for a birthday celebration. At the time of booking I asked if the room was spacious and was informed it was a lovely spacious room. Parking is at the rear of the hotel so you have to walk through the hotel to the front reception area. The corridors... More

My husband took me to the Wordsworth for a birthday treat. We arrived at 2pm and were told the room wouldn't be ready until three, although the website says 2pm. It wasn't a problem tho, we enjoyed a coffee in the bar and went for a walk whilst we waited. We were then taken to our room which was decorated... More

I last stayed at this hotel in 1984 and it didn't feel as though anything had changed... My "classic" double room was pokey and extremely dated with sparse facilities. The public areas are better but also looking dated and drab. In years gone by this was a great hotel and its a shadow of its former self and needs an... More

Can't say anything wrong ! Great hotel, would recommend to everyone who is planning to go to Lake District, nice staff, nice looking rooms, small but good spa and delicious breakfast ! Just a little bit expensive dinners but that is not really important ... good location as well.

A lovely hotel in a lovely village. Very friendly staff in this top class hotel with wonderful food served in a very nice restaurant; really good menu choice and nicely presented. Our room/bathroom had recently been upgraded to a very high standard with lovely soft furnishings. Nice Lounges and Conservatory overlooking lovely private gardens & lawns.

Second time I have stayed here, hotel great, staff friendly and helpful. We ate in the hotel one of the evenings, food fantastic; my only disappointment was that I couldn't eat it all!! Bedroom comfortable, but a bit hot and it was difficult to open the window, also if I stayed again I would ask not to be put in... More

I stayed in this hotel for a conference and I was particularly impressed at how well they handled my (long list of) allergies. Although they didn't plan ahead at all despite having over a month's warning, they did deal with my allergies considerably better than I've ever experienced before. They were extremely careful (no anaphylactic reaction anyway!) including changing the... More

Could hear the lift till late and the room was red hot even with the radiators turned off and the windows wide open. The bed had had its day it went to sleep with you. It was like going back 30 years in... More
