Lovely sized room overlooking the lake, very clean and very friendly hard working staff. There are some great walks that you start from the hotel which is good. Grasmere village is about 10 mins walk away and there are some fab restaurants and bars there. Spar and saunas are great. Really good choice at breakfast, I opted for the fish... More

We have visited this hotel twice in the last year & it is fabulous. The rooms are well furnished & decorated and a good size too!. Nice spa & wonderful setting on the lake shore. What makes this hotel special for us is that you can get good quality rooms & facilities plus take the dog. Our dog loves the... More

Just returned from a two night stay. The hotel is across the road from Dove Cottage and overlooks Grasmere Lake. It is also a relatively short walk into Grasmere village. First impressions were that the reception area was a little stark for my liking but it was very modern and very clean. The room was on the small side but... More

Came for afternoon tea today (16 August 2014) looked lovely on the website. Not good. Dry sandwiches and dry scones which we're replaced with more of the same, not impressed, wouldn't come back. Staff very apologetic chief needs a lesson on how to make fresh fluffy scones.

We spent the most relaxing 3 days of a 6 week European adventure at this hotel. It is ideally located in the most relaxed atmosphere- 'Peter' rabbits on the lawn of the hotel each night and a gaggle of geese feeding on the lawns first thing each morning - sensational. Our room overlooked the lake and was a spacious yet... More

Our recent stay at The Daffodil was for a friends wedding. The setting for this hotel is very nice, just a hop away from the lake and quiet enough. As a venue it has good facilities, nice rooms and is generally clean & tidy. For weddings it has a large function room, but my only observation would be that it... More

Arrived to a beautiful location looking forward to a luxury break given the rate paid. Rooms were very small for the price. We got a room with slanting ceiling facing the air conditioning units which was not only highly priced but also noisy at night. When we spoke to staff and told them it was our anniversary and that it... More

The last time I stayed at the hotel was in 1983 when it was the Prince of Wales. The special occasion being our honeymoon. It was a 'prestigious' hotel in those days but hats off to the Harwood & Brady families for a wonderful transformation. The hotel is totally refurbed and more bedrooms, rooms added. A lovely building. Check in... More

A beautiful location for a hotel and a great standard throughout. It is unfortunate that during our stay foul mouthed and rowdy wedding guests did their best to keep everyone awake and trash the ground floor and outside area. The next morning the ground floor and grounds were still in an atrocious state and had not been fully returned to... More
