We booked Dale Lodge in advance and paid a £50 deposit for an executive room. When we arrived at Dale Lodge to check in, our room had been allocated to to another guest. NOT the best start to a weekend break after driving for 2.5 hours. We also had our dog with us. The executive room is a dog friendly... More

We chose to stay here after enjoying a meal in tweedies bar a few years ago. The downstairs of the hotel is very nice, traditional but cosy with a lovely dining/sitting area. The bedroom on the other hand was poor, very small with gaudy decor and the heat in the room was unbearable. There was a fan but unfortunatly it... More

Just 5miles out of Ambleside is the picturesque village of Grasmere, the Dale Lodge is just perfect for this area, lovely gardens and comfortable welcoming rooms with big windows that give it lots of light. Our room (7) was very comfortable, we could of spent a week here easily. The pub adjoining the hotel has a fine selection of beers... More

We quite simply love coming here. I have been a regular visitor to the Lake District since 1978 and I found the Dale Lodge by accident a few years ago and try to visit a couple of times a year. I have never had a complaint to make about the rooms, the service or the food all have always been... More

About the room - well the bed was very comfortable and so were the pillows, very clean, very quiet at back of hotel (but no... More

I booked this stay a few months ago as I knew we needed something to lift us from a stressful 6months at work.. I liked what I'd read & booked us into The Mews Suite thinking they sounded a great idea. I wasn't wrong. Lovely to be away from the main hotel yet still being looked after by staff. My... More

From the second we arrived and greeted by Craig till the moment we left we had a most amazing time. We arrived for our friends weddings. The wedding was so well coordinated. The food was 5 star. The staff all of them were fantastic. The registrar gave such a wonderful service. The bride herself was treated like royalty. The room... More

I travelled to Grasmere with my boyfriend for a quick, overnight research trip. We arrived much earlier than check in but the extremely polite and welcoming staff were happy to allow me to park outside the hotel until the check in time. Our room was very clean and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was luxurious and offered Molton Brown toiletries. We... More
