We stayed here early January as it was bought for us for a present. The room was nice and bed really comfy. The shower was struggling with water pressure but I believe it's due for an update this winter. The lounge was lovely to relax and have a drink. There is no bar in the hotel but the staff offer...

We booked our 2 night stay through Travelzoo and upgraded to an Executive Room which normally costs from £145 per night so we thought we had got a bargain at £190 for 2 nights including breakfast. Reasons not to stay 1. On arrival met by a grumpy man whose manner was colder than the weather (he turned out to be... More

Lovely location, shame about the unprofessional and shambolic approach. We booked a 'premier' room, with nothing premier about it. It was freezing, damp and smelled of mould. The windows are ill-fitting and the radiator is too small, should have been a big clue when you see not one but TWO extra fan heaters! There had been a mistake on our... More

Went here last minute into the executive room. Was really nice and relaxing. Very pleasent receptionist greeted us on arrival. Got our room at a discount aswell. Grasmere itself is a beautiful place with windermere just down the road. We had a meal in a restaurant in windermere so never got chance to try the tweedies bar. We had breakfast... More

V helpful staff who tried to make our stay as good as possible. We used the lounge with the log fire for our day meetings and ate in... More

We love this hotel. It's all you want for a relaxing weekend. The bedrooms are warm and comfy with large beds and plenty of pillows. Bathroom has everything you need. The lounge has a fantastic fire and huge sofas to sink into. We particularly recommend the Tweedies restaurant / bar for great food, wines and beers. Staff are lovely and... More

We stayed as a family of 4 for 2 nights at Dale Lodge in early December. Our short holiday in the Lakes was superb, due in part to the hotel we'd chosen. Attracted by a reduced rate online, we had no idea what to expect and I must say we were happily surprised when we arrived. We had a large... More
