We had a one night stay here and it was one of the worst nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel. The room was incredibly hot even though we turned the radiator off, a car alarm went off at least six times during the night. I called reception at 3.30am to ask if anything was being done about...

My husband treated me to a weekend away for my 30th birthday at The Wordsworth. It was our first stay in Grasmere as we usually go to Bowness. Grasmere was very quiet at this time of year with lots of places closed for the whole of January. So it was a good job the hotel had so much to offer.... More

We held our wedding at the Wordsworth 13 years ago and celebrated our anniversary weekend there every year, up until last year. Due to illness, we could not go, which at the time felt so sad and a break in tradition. However, I realised the sadness was literally the break in tradition and not going to The Wordsworth as such.... More

We stayed for 3 nights halfway through January. In terms of our room, I was a little disappointed in our "upgrade" to a village view. We overlooked the village, but being on the top floor and only source of natural light being virtual skylights, as a short person I couldn't see out of them without climbing on a chair. We... More

Just returned from an impromptu last minute stay at The Wordsworth Hotel. Fantastic. The service from receptionist to bar staff to restaurant staff was excellent. The decor and atmosphere in the hotel is fabulous, lots of space to be on your own, space too to chat and socialise. The spa facilities are excellent. Lovely pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The breakfast...

To see off 2014, and welcome in the New Year, my partner and I stayed at the Grasmere. For 3 nights we enjoyed some of the best service we have experienced. A truly welcoming atmosphered awaited us every morning, and upon our return from our walks during the day. The celebrations for NYE were fantastic, and although the DJ was... More

It was a Xmas present from the children for myself and wife to go and have an overnight break, cannot fault it, rooms were excellent facilities, pool, jacuzzi, bar and the quality of the service was second to none, weather was typical winter Lakeland! so the roaring fire and a couple of Brandy's to settle you down went well, arrived...

We stayed at the Wordsworth for their Christmas package. We didn't enjoy it. Most of the clients were "of a certain age" whose appetites have generally become smaller. Portions at the Wordsworth were far too large. I hate to waste food but there was no way I could finish their meals. The 'entertainment' over Christmas was not to our taste... More

This hotel is such a find! The rooms are beautifully appointed and stylish. The staff are remarkable, I've never met a whole staff who are friendly and so competent; they couldn't do enough to make one's stay memorable. The food was superb - 5star!! We had a magnificent room, with four-poster bed, at the back of the hotel, so lovely... More
