My husband and I had a wonderful stay in the Wordsworth Hotel. Our room was large and very comfortable, king size bed, very clean and warm. The pool, spa and sauna facilities were perfect after a chilly and unfortunately rainy few days in the Lakes. All the staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good, but it was the evening...

Hotel was very pleasant, charming hotel, although the beds were very firm! All the staff were very attentive and friendly, however there was some confusion with our food orders, which I put down to the them being mostly new. The advertised gym wasn't there anymore and the surround to the swimming pool was very slippery. What couldn't be faulted, however,... More

Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail from the staff was noticeable. The food was excellent and enjoyed by all and was all served and cleared promptly. The rooms are all lovely from the 'classic'... More

Eggs Benedict for breakfast took... More

Hotel location is perfect in the center of Grasmere village and the room I was upgraded to was terrific with comfy king sized bed and 2 massive windows with beautiful views over the mountains and gardens. My room deal included afternoon tea and scones, delicious! Pre-dinner bubbly and canapes and a wonderful 4 course dinner. The only slight disappointment was... More

We visited over New Year and stayed on a 3 night break (sorry I'm late with the review). This was our third visit to the Wordsworth and it exceded everything that had gone before (if that was possible!) We enjoyed the hospitality of the owner, who made a point of greeting and mingling with guests throughout the whole stay, dining... More

A return visit to the Wordsworth and equally pleased again with all aspects of our stay. Every member of staff we met was friendly, pleasant, knowledgeable and the level of service we received was excellent.
