My brother and I stayed at the rothay garden last January. We both enjoyed this first class hotel. We had room 1 and room 2. Really lovely rooms. With fantastic food. Lovely staff. And to top it all the superb village of grasmere. We both enjoyed it so much we are going again in January 2015. It was like home... More

Just stayed for 2 nights and have to say this hotel is over priced, I am quite happy to pay a premium for a premium hotel, but I don't expect to see mould around the bath top seals, patio lights held together with cardboard and duct tape, and various patches of crumbly décor. In addition to this, as we were... More

My partner & I have just returned from a weekend break at this beautiful hotel. I had recieved a red letter day voucher & decided on the rothay garden as it was small, picturesque & had a spa. From the minute we arrived at reception we had a friendly welcome & shown to our room. The room was spotless &... More

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of November as a belated birthday treat for my husband. If only we could have stayed longer. Our room was great with a small balcony facing the river. Lovely comfy bed, plenty of space in the room generally. The staff were all really helpful and always cheerful. We booked for the dinner,... More

I wished to take my wife to the Lake District for a birthday treat and, after reading numerous reviews, decided on the Rothay Garden Hotel at Grasmere. Well, you know what it's like, you read all these great reviews, arrive with huge expectations and are ultimately disappointed. Not this time. Everything about our stay, from the courteous and attentive staff,... More

What can I say, we stayed for 4 nights from the 17th of November to enjoy the special food and wine break that the Rothay Garden Hotel offers. My comment: I NEED TO MARRY THE CHEF! if he's already married he needs to get divorced! I am only jesting of course but the food is that good. I measure food... More

Enjoyed yet another fantastic break at Rothay garden. Stayed in one of the suites (on promotion rate) but the service was exceptional as normal. The owner and his team are dedicated to the hotel and cannot do enough for guests. The meals were all to a really high standard and offered a menu with treats worthy of a luxury break.... More

We haven't stayed at this hotel for a few years... Why? We were delighted with the transformation. Chris Caars and his team have made it a delight. We wanted a few days relaxing with good food and good wine. We got that in abundance. We usually avoid hotel spas, ..not this one, it is delightful. The spa bath has two... More

We have been staying at the Rothay Garden for over twenty years and have enjoyed the way it has changed and developed. Less changes nowadays but we still enjoy ourselves. High points are the choice of wines, the restaurant and the spa. Even if a number of the staff are Romanian they have not just landed and other members of... More
