We usually love Dale Lodge and have booked our wedding here next year. That said, I'm afraid I was disappointed with this stay. We stayed in the mews suite as we like the use of the hot tub, which was fine. Each day we ordered breakfast in our room, for a supplement. Each day it was wrong. One day I... More

Centrally located with plenty of parking Dale Lodge is a great place to stay in Grasmere. Facilities are good and breakfast plentiful and tasty. Tweedies bar is joined on offering good meals and a great selection of real ale. Friendly staff made our stay enjoyable and we will look forward to a return visit.

We got married at the Dale Lodge in November 2014 after discovering this gem of a hotel the year before. The hotel was the perfect setting for our day from the roaring fires in all of the reception rooms to the country pub feel of Tweedies where we held our reception. We want to give special thanks to Craig who... More

We stayed here again and received a warm welcome from Gillian on arrival. We like the homely feel of the hotel. We chose an executive room and apart from a very slow filling toilet we were delighted with the room. We ate each night in tweedies and thoroughly enjoyed our feel (and drink) in this hostelry/restaurant. A seperaste review was... More

This trip was a good deal through My Waitrose and we were not disappointed. The weather was kind for this time of year and the hotel proved to be a good venue. The welcoming "winter warmer" was an excellent start to our stay, especially as it was served in front of a warming log fire! The room was comfortable, Tweedies... More

Booked a night in this Hotel and was so pleased with the room (17), service, breakfast and food at the bar we stayed a second night. An issue with a leak into the room during a storm was "eventually" sorted out by the Hotel manager so because of that I would stay again and recommend to friends and family.

Fantastic views, fantastic food and fantastic service. Stayed at No1 The Mews and it was ideal for a couple as was the fact the other three Mews were empty so we had the hot tub to ourselves. The experience was even better as it was snowing at the time! Get there soon, if only to try the lamb at Tweedies.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in January and it couldn't have been a better place to stay. We booked through "secret escapes" although would probably go direct to the hotel if we stayed again. Only booked a basic room but were given an upgrade at no extra cost which really did help to make our stay extra special. Tweedies, the... More
