We stayed here in February 2015. We found numerous items not up to the standard we expected. 1) Bathroom ceiling fan really noisy and needed replacing, and was so clogged with dust that it didn't extract anything anyway. With no bathroom window and the fan linked to the light switch we had to endure the racket. Concerned it would wake... More

I stayed at the hotel Last week with my son (5) and dog. Yet again staff are wonderful and more than willing to help. We had a lovely room and ate in the conservatory the first evening after a wander around the village and a trip to chesters by the the river. Food was lovely. Breakfast the next morning was... More

Just has yet another great break at the Red Lion Hotel, Grasmere. It is completely peerless when it comes to location, friendly staff and great food. The views are fantastic whether you overlook the pretty Grasmere village or the stunning fells. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for the staff who are both warm and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious.... More

Unfortunately the Red Llion doesn't meet its potential. The location is fantastic and the staff were wonderful. We had the Coleridge room, what a view, not stayed in many places that could beat that view. However, someone forgot to put it any sound insulation between our room and the one next door. It was obviously an attic room that had... More

Stayed at Grasmere Red Lion for my daughter's hen party. The hotel was surprisingly nicer than I thought and really good value for the price. Another daughter arrived as a surprise with her friend and baby and needed a room at short notice and the hotel did really well in finding a lovely room at a good price with no... More

We went to Grasmere for two nights as the final part of a week in the lakes, having spent the three previous nights in Keswick. When we arrived we were disappointed to say the least. The carpet in the middle of the room had split and worn away. There was a gap of about 15 cm between the end corner... More

This was our second visit to the Red Lion. Perfect location, attentive friendly staff. Currently undergoing refurbishment but this did not affect our stay. Good bedrooms, nice white bed linen. Bathrooms need a bit of an upgrade. Good breakfast. Poor parking. Would definitely stay again.

This was our 4th stay and as on all previous occasions we found the accommodation to be more than satisfactory and the staff to be friendly and helpful. The current renovations were being carried out without disruption in fact I think we probably disturbed the painters more than they disrupted us. Although car parking was more restricted than usual we... More

We visited the hotel to watch olly Murs tribute it was a great night the hotel lounge was very busy. Great night had by all, we also visited the pub inside the hotel we didn't eat there but it was very busy with plenty of walkers having food. Another bonus dogs are allowed too .
