The Red Lion is a relaxing place to be and in January gives you the option of staying indoors if you need to. My room was decorated in a contemporary style and had everything I needed; it was warm too. The cooked breakfast is excellent, so was the service. I ate in the bar on a couple of occasions and...

Stayed here overnight in January. We chose this hotel as they allow dogs. It is very easy to find as I found Grasmere isn't very big (apart form the walks) . We had a pleasant check in , but no parking .We had to unload as much as we could then find a parking place . You can park in... More

This lakeland hotel is situated in the centre of grasmere, it's rated 3 star, but it's more a 4 star standard, it's very much like a Marriott hotel. It's smart inside with a rich warm decor with a lovely lounge area, the rooms are large in size with a very good standard of accommodation. The hotel has wifi, a swimming... More

This is our fifth visit to The Red Lion and we wouldn't have gone again if we didn't enjoy and get what we require. A warm very friendly reception, very good local food for the evening meal in the restaurant and excellent breakfast. The local lamb was succulent one night and guinea fowl as a starter another night along with... More

Another friendly welcome from all the staff at this 'family feel' hotel. As regular visitors we enjoy a great rest, good food, comfortable surroundings in a perfect setting. The manager, Chris, heads a friendly and helpful team, nothing is too much trouble for them and it is the real reason we return time and again.

We tried the Red Lion for a winter weekend after a ten year break and found the food in particular was just average. The restaurant evening meals were less haute cuisine, more pub grub. Breakfast fine- but no brown sauce- just the flat reply "we haven't got any!". The service both in the dining room and at reception was efficient... More

A super hotel in the heart of Grasmere with superb walks and views within easy distance. We had a standard double room, which had plenty of storage facilities, was very warm and very comfortable. Some of the furnishings in the hotel and room look a little weary. The food was excellent with a cooked to order breakfast and five course... More
