Superb hotel. The staff were without exception welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was spotless with lovely crisp white sheets. Use of the hot tub, sauna and pool was included and was very welcome at the end of a day's walking. Food was delicious and extremely well presented. We would definitely stay there again.

Having read the very clear sign outside saying that morning coffee was available and non-residents were very welcome we walked into the hotel. I asked where we could both be served with our coffees and was given a terse response by the receptionist...........refreshments were for residents only. What is going on here? This was not a good first impression of... More

Stayed here on a DBB deal. Top notch room, friendly and helpful staff. The food was delicious, the service was excellent special mention for Alex and James the barmen for providing imaginative cocktails and a convivial social atmosphere. Will definitely stay again.

What a lovely hotel this is! Right in the center of the village. We stayed in a junior suite and were not dissappointed. The room was a good size, comfortable with a good size bathroom. We even had a little balcony (though the weather was too wet to enjoy it) which gave extra light to the room. Without exception the... More

We have just had a 2 night break here with our friends and it was excellent, the rooms were very comfortable, we used the pool on the day we arrived, we had spent 2 hours in Windermere on our way there, but the weather then tuned but it was check in time which is why we used the pool. On... More

Had a two night stay here recently and found it fine but expensive for what we got. Twin room [ kids ] was quite large, clean and tidy. Our room really very small and a bit "tired looking" - enamel on bath was worn in one spot, wardrobes were old style white [ but off white ] with faded beading... More

My wife and I stayed here with our two young children recently during half term. Overall we had a nice time but there were a few gripes that made us thing the hotel is not good value for money compared to other places we have stayed. The staff were friendly but generally a bit slow taking orders for food/drink. We... More

We were sorry to read your review,i have investigated your complaint, i believe your children shared the ham salad starter hence the small portion. I can assure you we do not get anything from Farmfoods? whoever they are we only buy from good locally sourced suppliers. The only other complaint we had received that evening was regarding children screaming !... More

My wife and I have just returned from a three night stay at the Wordsworth Hotel. Although the weather was dreary, our stay was made all the more cheerful by the attention to detail by the hotel staff. We found all the staff to be courteous, polite and genuinely interested in our day to day plans. The room that we... More

We didn't stay here, we just called in for afternoon tea. No one even smiled, let alone greeted us. The two male bar staff were the most sullen and miserable we have ever encountered. Our order for two hot chocolates was greeted with "are you staying here?" no politeness, no thankyou or anything even civil, in fact we were made... More

Dear Carol, I can only apologize for the appalling service you received at the hotel. The two members of staff who totally let us down have received a final warning as to the future conduct. Please contact the hotel for a full refund. You can see from our other reviews this is not our normal standard of service. Iain Garside... More

We stayed here for one night on the spur of the moment whilst visiting Grasmere. We had a 'King Size Room' overlooking the village, on the second floor. The room was spacious and pleasant with a nice bathroom. All the staff were courteous. There is excellent room service. The atmosphere is relaxed but traditional 'English.' We thoroughly enjoyed our stay... More
