We booked a room for one night only to break up a journey to Glasgow. We had been to Tweedies Bar (next door) before so knew that we would at least have a nice few pints of beer. The hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Grasmere and Tweedies Bar is right next door. Our room (4) could have... More

Absolutely fabulous stay at Dale Lodge Hotel. Couldn't have had a better stay. Food absolutely amazing, James the chef does a fantastic job. Alex is a very competent bar manager. Would definately come back time and time again. The Grasmere Guzzler is on weekend of 6th September will certainly be back again.

We had a great stay; the room we got was fantastic; greatly appointed and tastefully decorated with a good view of the lawns. Lovely having a beer at the tweedies bar; good food. Convenient location for a touring holiday into the lake district. Secure parking and outlook. Staff helpful, and quite, peaceful location.

Right in the middle of Grasmere, Plenty of parking, Nice rooms but a little disappointed with the evening meal. Problem is I compare all meals to the Oakbank Hotel which on 3 occasions provide the best meal I have had at any hotel! - Breakfast was very nice though! Nice bar with plenty of real ales.

We stayed here from the 10th august to the 13th and this was by far one of the best hotels we've stayed in. The rooms were comfortable and tidy, very clean and had everything you needed in them. Everything was very clean around the hotel. The staff were lovely and very friendly, they couldn't do enough for you. The food... More

We have stayed in Grasmere many many times and this is the first time at Dale Lodge. Beautiful building stepped in history - The downstairs communal areas are furnished/decorated in keeping with the Georgian period. The staff were all very helpful, the room was on the small side but had a great view of the gardens. Very clean and again... More

The staff made our visit very enjoyable. Very friendly and helpful - they changed our room for one with a bigger double bed on request and made us very welcome. Nice grounds which we used during a mini heatwave and ate at the pub at the back of the hotel - good food and big portions. Wifi and packed lunches... More

Stayed here on 28/7/14 - 30/7/14 in the Mews rooms (outside hotel). It was beautiful, the first thing that I liked about it was there is a hot tub you can use outside (shared), seating area and the room was modern, well presented, clean, cosy and it smelt so lovely. Plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits provided every... More

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed it. The hotel is beautiful, set in a really pretty garden. We were given an accessible room which was lovely and spacious. We were made to feel instantly welcome, the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice - a cold buffet with hot breakfast made to order which was delicious... More
