This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in! We were greeted by a very friendly reception team, I enjoyed a seamless spa treatment from Anna and Kasia, one of the best treatments and overall spa experiences I have ever had. The room was very comfortable with all the extras you would expect to find. Great breakfast,... More

Words cannot describe the fabulous day that we shared with our guests at our wedding on 23rd May at the Daffodil Hotel in a Grasmere!! We chose the venue for the top quality accommodation and lovely surrounding countryside but this is completely surpassed by the service from all the staff from the moment you check in to the moment you...

We stayed at this hotel for one night, we had booked a standard room but decided to upgrade when we got to the hotel and saw the views, we stayed in a senior suite and the room was of a good standard. Views were spectacular looking out over the lake and the hills and the room was very spacious (massive... More

Stayed two nights at the end of August. Billed as a four star and I'd say it more or less occupies that rating well. The rooms are nice though the decoration is perhaps a bit plain and safe. Brilliant beds, great night's sleep, decent sized bath too. Breakfast is good, plenty of choice and essentially all you can eat. Service... More

We had our wedding reception at the Daffodil in August, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The function room is spacious and smart with stunning views of the lake through big french windows which allow guests to mill on the terrace by the lake. The staff (and Ashleigh the wedding coordinator in particular) were hugely helpful, both in the... More

Fantastic hotel, beautiful setting, views and amazing food! Highly recommended! We used the spa pool while we stayed here for one night which was modern, very clean and had a beautifully calm ambience. However, please note that the spa pool area is not open late into the evening every night. There was also a spacious hotel car park. The rooms... More

Fantastic hotel in a fabulous location. The rooms were spacious. We were there for a family wedding and the whole event was superb. The hotel overlooks the lake and there is a lovely walk around the whole lake that ends in the village. Most of the staff were excellent but a few were very poor in terms of service and... More

This hotel is lovely. We stayed in a Valley View room, which had a lovely superking sized bed which was very comfortable. We had a corner room which had 2x double doors which over looked Grasmere which was perfect. The spa was quiet when we used it. We didn't get any treatments but we used the hydrotherapy pool and sauna/steam... More

Visited for a family dinner...food terrible. Steak was tough and very fatty. Waited forever for main course then they got I wrong. Complained and then they got the desserts wrong too! Very poor communication between front of house and kitchen. Manager apologies were less than genuine and superficial. Will never return!
