This is a very warm/cosy and friendly hotel. The staff were helpful and gave every assistance when requested. I enjoyed the food and the comfort of the lounge and the conservatory. The leisure facilities were very inviting and I had a very enjoyable swim in the lovely warm pool.

The room was clean warm and quiet. We had the last one on the corridor which reduced the noise. Communal areas are smart and inviting, and staff... More

Stayed for one night in February. Hotel was generally very good, nice room, good food and service. Wonderfull location in centre of Grasmere and our room had great view.Only drawback is the insufficient parking spaces although we were lucky and got one.Wi-Fi needs boosted.
