It can be quite difficult to find a room which is truly wheelchair accessible however this hotel has one. It's a boutique type hotel which is beautifully decorated. The grounds are lovely and staff helpful and attentive. We ate in the main restaurant in the evening and it was a good meal. The breakfast was filling and had a great... More

Our third time at Dale Lodge and it never fails to disappoint us. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly - big thanks to Craig who was fantastic as always. The hotel is decorated in a lovely style and has everything you need after a long day walking. The Mews have the hot tub which is always empty, warm and... More

Firstly I must say that we did not stay here and to be fair I believe for that it has some good reviews for that. However we booked here for dinner on a Sunday night and therefore we chose the restaurant and not the bar. We should not have bothered as the menu in the restaurant was evidently the same... More

Impressive hotel in gorgeous location. Although in the very centre of Grasmere, you feel out of the hustle and bustle. Reception rooms are beautifully decorated and feel like a real special hotel. The bedrooms we stayed in, however, were very small and not in keeping with rest of hotel. They were 'ok' for two nights but wouldn't like to have... More

We have just returned from a family birthday weekend at The Dale Lodge. We have had a fantastic weekend, the hotel is beautiful set in lovely grounds with lots of parking spaces too!! Which is always a bonus. It is a beautiful hotel with many character features. The staff have been fantastic and nothing we have asked has been too... More

My girlfriend and I have found ourselves using The Dale Lodge as a yard stick, against which any other hotel we stay in is measured. This hotel is frankly the definition of comfort and hospitality. The building has a central situation within the town and the character of a stately home with a finely groomed gardens. Great care and attention... More

An old-fashioned, comfortable, friendly hotel with a splendid restaurant attached (Tweedies). Its location at the heart of the Lake District is ideal, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The menu (range and quality) far exceeded any expectations, and each course was outstanding. The only negatives (which will not effect most holiday makers) is that the rooms do not have... More

Room was lovely, the smell of Molten Brown adds a touch of class to the room. Staff were friendly and helpful. Tweedies bar had 2 of my favourite drinks, Anchor Steam and The Botanist gin, which are rare to find. Perfect for a quiet getaway and for those that love the beautiful scenery of the English countryside.

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.
