Stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding. The hotel is set in lovely grounds in a lovely area. A very quintessential hotel and location that reminds you how beautiful England is (especially when you live in a city). The rooms was lovely and spacious and very nicely decorated. The bathroom was also spotless. The staff were helpful and nothing... More

My mum and dad stayed here last year and raved about it, so for her 70th we sent them back and now wish we hadn't. What a waste of money. I booked and made it clear they were not to be charged and that it was birthday gift & the girl took down all my details and made notes (or... More

When I read reviews I sometimes wonder if I'm on the same planet as my fellow reviewers! Having written over 50 reviews, there are occasions I have to remind myself that everyone's expectations are different. Ok then. We booked the Wordsworth Hotel for a small intimate wedding for our daughter and from our initial contact right through to the day... More

From the moment we contacted the hotel we knew we had made the right choice. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. We felt at ease and relaxed as soon as we walked into the hotel. The position of the hotel in the centre of Grasmere is perfect! The restaurant is excellent and the service is fantastic. We will definitely return.

This hotel is dog-friendly, but if like me you don't have a dog, then you should look for a clean, un-smelly, dog-free room elsewhere. I don't think that it exists in this establishment - that lives on its reputation of its name and so-called link to Wordsworth (which it maybe has none?). The food at night is reasonable but the...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking your time for writhing this review, although I am very surprised about your statements.

A friend of ours got married here and we stayed at the venue overnight, we do believe everybody was charged the same amount and different size & quality of rooms were shared out equally to the guests. I think we were given one of the poorer rooms. It was small, cramped and tired looking. The beds were unconftable and we... More

We Booked our Wedding over a year ago and when we arrived on the 24th July this year, the hospitality from the staff was second to none. The room we stayed in was spectacular with amazing views of the mountains in the background. The acres of the hotel was just amazing and as we had such wonderful weather we got... More

Stayed at this hotel for three days first week in August, 2014. Stunning area complimented by this first class hotel. Hotel layout, staff attitudes, food, standard of rooms and public areas, grounds of hotel, etc, etc: all first class. As stated, I have never given a venue full marks previously, however, The Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere deserves this accolade. Well... More

We booked this hotel last minute so we knew it would not be the best room in the hotel. However the courtyard room had the fire escape in front of the only window and then a courtyard no bigger than 4m square. The room was extremely hot, very small, the light over the fire escape shone into the room all... More

Had a relatively impromptu stay at The Wordsworth. Booked directly with the hotel, which was effortless. Upon arrival, check-in service was quick and efficient and our room was available earlier than expected. The room was superb, beautifully furnished with amazing views of the mountains and gardens, and a really large comfortable bed. Had champagne afternoon tea served in the bar... More
