On a cold December Sunday, booking into the Red Lion was bliss. A cosy hotel with welcoming staff, a spacious room incorporating a seating area with a sofa and an armchair, snowy white linen on a super-comfy bed, a lovely view from the window, a four-course dinner professionally served.......I was in heaven. We were only there for dinner, bed and... More

We stayed early December 2014. Weather was quite old and a little wet, but the hotel was lovely and warm. The lounge area is particularly inviting, with cosy seating. Our room was spacious with good views over the hills and clean and comfortable. We can't fault this hotel and the welcome we were given, was really pleasant. The restaurant serves... More

Excellent 3 night break at the Red Lion Grassmere. Good food and friendly helpful staff, especially Julie who very quickly sorted a room switch when there was no hot water in our original room. Would certainly return and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel

Had a two night break here on the 26th and 27th November. Reception , bar and restaurant staff all very friendly and professional. Couldn't fault dinner and breakfast in the Courtyard Restaurant, really tasty,well presented and good value. However, our room (121) on the first floor looked tired and in need of attention e,g torn wallpaper right across the wall... More

It may be just a Best Western but I was really very impressed, from the great reception at booking in, through to an excellent room with a splendid view over the Lakeland fells, the friendly staff, the surprisingly good food, the cask beers etc. etc. and what a great location p.s. the room even had a spa bath

Great location in gorgeous village. Warm and cosy hotel. We had a large room at the top which was quiet and spacious. Only fault was the lack of water on Saturday and unable to get a bath. Very good breakfast but do not need the radio playing in the dining room - it was too loud and distracting.
