This hotel was lovely, friendly staff and ideally situated in the middle of the Lake District.

We have become to expect this at Grasmere Red Lion. Friendly, caring, professional staff. Quality room. Top notch Breakfast and service to prepare for the day's walking. Central location and a wide variety of walks from the hotel front door.
