Having stayed twice before we worried that new ownership would have altered the hotel. But happy to say the staff were as pleasant as ever, food even better. So here's hoping this contines in this peaceful spot. Even in the seeming absence of any manager everything functioned like clockwork. We will certainly return.

Another visit to what is now the Grand at Grasmere Country House Hotel. Grand is certainly an appropriate title - grand location, grand scenery, grand hospitality and grand friendly staff. With refurbishment in progress it can only get more grand. let's hope the prices don't get too grand. Looking forward to developments.

Just returned from a two night stay at The Grand. We were given room 8 one of the newly refurbished rooms. The bed was new that day!! It was our first stay and we have already booked to return in October. The staff were welcoming, warm and helpful at all times. The food was fantastic and the service excellent. The... More

Having stayed before and loved it we had an expectation of how things used to be...good points are that the views are still stunning and the breakfast was excellent as is the location BUT we were not informed of the change of ownership or that the pool was closed untill next year,not major points in themselves however given that in...

We got there at night, exhausted, with no previous booking in the middle of August... they were full, but managed to get us a cozy little room and some dinner when the kitchen was closed. Really enjoyed staying there, all guests were locals and very friendly with us being foreigners and all. Breakfast was great, very British, abundant and assorted,... More

This was our 5th visit. We like the way things happen at this hotel. It is under new ownership so I think we will need to visit again in a few months to see if things have remained so, (with suitable improvements ) The renovations can only be good - look forward to seeing room 21 after the refit. This... More

Check in was quick and we were offered help with our luggage which we didn't require.we were allocated room 6which was a bit small but spotlessly clean with fresh white bedding . The bathroom was...

We have been visiting this hotel for over 20 years. There is a change of ownership but no change in the wonderful staff or excellent food as in previous visits. However wine choice is different, now pricey and not as good. On a more trivial note, I do think the name change is daft, this is not a resort hotel,... More

This hotel is tired and resembles an old peoples home. We struggled to find it because we had booked under the old name and they hadn't informed us of the change. The rooms are apparently being refurbished by the new owners but ours was dismal and in need of brightening. We had to walk through the dining room with cases... More

My room was small but very clean, well appointed and nicely decorated. The bathroom was very clean and modern. The service is outstanding and the food is excellent. The area has excellent outdoor activities, most notable walking. The views are exceptional.
