We stayed here for two nights. The room was comfortable ,service good but food was disappointing on our first night much better on the second. This is not a cheap hotel so one would expect perfect service. I asked if the scallops were supposed to be cold and the waiter said that he would ask the chef. I am still... More

The Rothay, is a fairly slick operation, and the restaurant is outstanding. Can any breakfast be better than the fell walkers breakfast? It is well situated very close to Grasmere and has a tidy little spa. The overall feeling is one of tranquility and in my view it has that little something which distinguishes it from other hotels of this... More

This hotel is not actually sited in Grasmere, but it is only a short distance upriver to the north of the village (presumably in Broadgate), with adequate car-parking provision and an immaculate south-facing garden. Our room was on the first floor, overlooking the garden and had a roof terrace with table and chairs. The bathroom was a good size ;... More

I booked a 2 night Bed Breakfast and Evening Meal via an offer on Travelzoo. Although we had a long drive for 2 nights, it was absolutely worth it. The staff were really friendly and more than accommodating. Our room had a balcony which overlooked the river at the back of the hotel. The room was comfortable, and modern with... More

We have just returned from a one night stay at this hotel where we stayed in a Langdale room. Having stayed in many hotels in the Lakes this is by far my favourite. The hotel itself is beautiful and modern with a cosy relaxed feel to it and gorgeous gardens. Staff are all very friendly and polite (having read previous... More

Nice lounge area, and lovely restaurant. food was excellent, good wine choice, not too expensive. very nice breakfast. As we only booked a few days before our trip , we got a good deal on a... More

Stunning setting and a lovely hotel. Loved the spa and the balcony in the room. Even though it was cold outside the balcony was quite sheltered so we could use it. Food was lovely too, although I thought the restaurant looked a little dated. Such an unfriendly place though. The lady checking us in was polite but totally unsmiling. The... More

Just returned from a lovely four day break in Grasmere. The Rothay Garden Hotel had been recommended by friends and we were very impressed. Rooms sumptuous, food first rate and staff polite, professional and friendly. Spa was impressive and gardens well maintained. Will certainly return.

We have stayed at the Rothay Garden hotel many times in previous years and decided to try it again since the refurbishment, so we booked to stay in the Garden Suite in March. It was a beautiful suite, spotlessly clean. The staff in Reception and the rest of the hotel were very welcoming and helpful. What excellent standard the hotel... More
