4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Having visited this area and The Red Lion several times we were sure of a good welcome and were not disappointed. It was a real bonus to have exceptional weather so full use was made of the new patio area to the side of the hotel. This has been developed at the expense of car parking, an issue which occasionally... More

Once again we spent three splendid nights at the Red Lion. It is now being renovated and when finished will be delightful. Although under new ownership the staff remain and are as charming and helpful as on previous visits. Our dogs enjoy the luxury of the Red Lion and first class walks and will undoubtedly return. The atmosphere is superb... More

Choose a different hotel Booked through Booking.com - noted price was room only and expected to pay for breakfast if taken. At checkout the bill was prepared as having had breakfast - at £10 per person. When questioned staff explained it was booking.com's fault as they "choose" what to advertise. I challenged this and said this is what the hotel... More

This is my second visit to the Red Lion. Again, the hotel was excellent. Bed, room, bar and lounge all welcoming. My hotel of choice in that lovely part of The Lake District. A small distance from some of the greatest mountains in the world.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights with my parents & 12 week old son. The room I stayed in 211 had recently been renovated & was decorated to a very high standard, the staff were very accommodating & last minute they provided us with a travel cot. There were renovations taking place but they did not disrupt us... More

The car parking is limited and to be honest a complete nightmare even if you manage to get a space. It is very restrictive and I was amazed that my car wasn't damaged The location is excellent in the beautiful village of Grasmere. The rooms and leisure facilities were good but dated. The food and all round service was also... More

We had a very good short break at this hotel last week. Our room was spacious and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was very good. An added bonus were the swimming pool and the gym. We shall certainly be returning.

Currently staying here, last orders 10.50pm, all the staff have locked up and gone home. No night porter on site, lets hope there are no emergencies. Public areas very tired, ripped furniture, steam room out of service, swimming pool cold. £150 a night very dissapointing, we will not be returning.

Our stay at the Red Lion was a strange mixture of good and bad. It was not helped by the cold weather and icy winds; on our arrival there was no heating in the room and the bathroom window had been left open. We went to reception and the service was superb, as indeed it was throughout our stay. I... More
