4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

On arrival the welcome was very nice and warm. Our room was satisfactory although the double bed was 2 singles pushed together. The spa area was nice and enough for a pleasant stay. Our complaint was the evening meal. We booked a table for 8.30pm but we were served our main course at 10.15pm and it is no joke we... More

My wife and I spend 4 nights at the Wordsworth hotel with our 4 month old baby, and we would recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel itself it lovely, well maintained gardens and clean throughout. Our room was a good size, with a modern clean bathroom and nice toiletries that were replaced daily. There is a sauna and swimming... More

We stayed here in January this year for one night and found the hotel to be amazing. We were welcomed in on a cold snowy day by a roaring open fire in the main reception. We had afternoon tea in the hotel restaurant and it was amazing! Far too much food for two people. The breakfast was delicious and we... More

Never disappointed here. The food and accommodation 1st class. The only thing which let our break down was the dreadful weather , it just rained continually. The Hotel couldn't not be blamed for that! The staff were fine and very helpful. Excellent value on a Travelzoo deal.

We visited on a two night midweek Travel Zoo deal. Very good value but we were disappointed that the restaurant on both nights and at breakfast had items on the menu that weren't available, this left the menu limited. The food we did have was excellent but would have liked a full choice. The Dove Bistro was overbooked on the... More

This hotel is situated in the centre of the village and although on the main road, the village is remarkably quiet. It provides easy access to other nearby places - Windermere, Ambleside etc. Also convenient for the famous 'Gingerbread ' shop next door. I recommend a walk around Grasmere lake - very pleasant and easy walking. The Wordsworth itself is... More

We stayed here on a mid week break in May 2015. Couldn't fault the hotel, the service was first class and dinner and breakfast were excellent. The hotel is situated in the centre of Grasmere so convenient for everything. The room was spotless and well equipped and the staff are helpful and friendly.

This hotel is a bit tired and in need of refurb but a lot has already been done and the service and evening food is very good. Breakfast lacks the quality of the evening meal but is still to a fair standard. The location is good and staff very friendly and you got the feeling that they cared about comfort... More

A thoroughly enjoyable weekend break. The guestroom - a Garden room was well appointed, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Whilst the menu in the Signature Restaurant may not be to everyone's taste it was special as was the service from restaurant staff especially Daniel who went that extra mile to ensure we had a good experience. With one exception all... More
