As guests my wife and i had heard good things about this hotel prior to it changing ownership. Good points were the food but thats about it folks'.....We found it a challange to understand any of the staff as all seamed to be from abroad. They weren't attentive one bit and at one point were noticed to be snearing at... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times because of its wonderful friendly service, superb food, comfortable accommodation and views to die for, looking out onto Grasmere and the surrounding fells. Our latest visit did not nothing to change our opinion. However, new visitors should be aware that the hotel has recently changed hands and is now called The Grand... More

Stayed here for 1 night in room 16 from 13th to 14th March 2015. We arrived at 1 pm and were greeted when we arrived by a very pleasant and helpful member of staff on the reception, although our room was not ready yet she made us feel very welcome. So we decided to have a look around Grasmere and... More

We have just returned from another visit to this superb hotel. It was just as enjoyable as in October. The staff are excellent, warm and friendly and very well trained. We have stayed in 3 different rooms, all within the main hotel, and each was nicely decorated and comfortable. The food is delicious and we particularly like the light, well... More

We stayed here again for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. We stayed in room 21, which is a lovely big room with separate bedroom and seating area. Food was excellent as always, as was the service. The only thing that I would change is the shower, it only really dribbled water out and the bath is quite short.... More

The staff worked as a team, if there was a table to be cleared then the... More

We have recently spent 2 nights at The Gold Rill and would highly recommend this hotel. From our arrival to leaving, the staff were all very pleasant and polite ( well trained in customer care) even though it was obvious that English was not necessarily their first language. The hotel is warm, inviting and comfortable. the bedroom was small, but... More

We really enjoy every visit and regard this as our home from home in 'The Lakes' for our short breaks. We have previously visited other hotels in the the same area but as soon as... More

we booked this hotel because of its location. It is situated on the edge of the village, but with easy walking to all of the amenities. The hotel is clean and very comfortable. The staff although generally young, were very polite and attentive, excellent service in the bar and restaurant. There was adequate choice of food from the set menu,... More
