Stayed with friends on a voucher - 2 nights bed and breakfast and one evening meal. Great value. On checking in we had a slight problem as we had requested twin beds and our 2 rooms both had doubles, This was corrected without any fuss and we were upgraded to delightful 2nd floor rooms which were spacious and comfortable.

My wife and myself were recent guests at a wedding held at the Wordsworth. Although we hadn't stopped there overnight, having opted for a hotel nearby, we were more than impressed with the facilities. Upon arrival we were immediately offered drinks but the ever attentive staff, and took the opportunity to visit the beautiful reception rooms based on the ground... More

We were at this hotel for a wedding. The hotel is clean,comfortable with stunning grounds. The staff are polite,helpful and accommodating. The ceremony was held in the grounds under a metal arch, it needed a coat of paint. The food was plentiful, well cooked and presented. Four had steak off the children's menu, three were good and one inedible. The... More

My daughter's wedding was held at The Wordsworth Hotel and Spa in Grasmere in early July and we had exclusive use of the hotel and grounds for 24 hours which was fantastic. The hotel is built in a traditional Lakeland stye and has an ambience of days gone by in some of the public rooms and areas but with contemporarily... More

I stayed here on 12.7.14 for 1 night. Room was lovely with en-suite (number 9) and I liked the added touch of fresh glass bottled water and Grasmere's on ginger biscuit! Pool, jacuzzi and sauna was lovely and breakfast was yummy! Staff = A* I would definitely stay here again!

This traditional Lakeland hotel is in central Grasmere which is great for walks from the doorstep and plenty of eateries. There's also a large complimentary car park which is really handy. We stopped for one night and paid £139 for a small twin which overlooked the car park. Although the room had tea and coffee making facilities there was no... More

We stayed for two nights mid week at the Wordsworth Hotel with our small dog this week and had a most peaceful and relaxing break in beautiful Grasmere. We stayed in room 40 which is at the back of the hotel - not much of a view but very easily accessed for anyone with mobility issues. We could park our... More

Our 2 night break was booked by our family as an anniversary gift. The reception staff were very welcoming and we found a complimentary bottle of wine in our room. All the staff were friendly but not intrusive and nothing was too much trouble. Food in the main restaurant was excellent. Our room was comfortable with a huge bed. We... More
