I stayed in this hotel with my partner for 2 nights in July, Grassmere is a beautiful part of the Lake District and this hotel compliments the place. The breakfast was really good with a buffet serving pastries, drinks and cereal and a menu to choose from for cooked breakfasts such as kippers any eggs royale. We dined in the... More

As we were staying elsewhere, in Grasmere, I booked us in for Afternoon Tea to celebrate our anniversary. (NB Pre-booking is advised not least because it's cheaper!) We have to say that, through out, the staff were very friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us. As vegetarians afternoon tea can, occasionally cause problems eg 'Do you eat fish?' Or... More

This hotel is beautiful. The staff are all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We went for one night, dinner bed and breakfast. The evening meal was fantastic and the breakfast was also very good. The only thing I would say is the room was extremely warm and the plumbing was noisy but everything else certainly out weighed...

Stayed here for the third time in 4 years. Hotel looked a little tired and have seen it cleaner. Food in restaurant excellent. Breakfasts and drinks service not as good as we expected. Still a good place to go, but unless service improves I think the other grasmere hotels will overtake it for value.

My husband I stayed here on 26th July for one night as part of our anniversary celebrations. We had found the hotel via living social and had purchased a voucher for dinner, bed and breakfast. Usually with these kinds of deal you would expect some kind of compromise, either with the quality of accommodation or the service provided to you.... More
