Awful service average food...staff are arrogant....best part of this place was the beer garden in the sun! Missing 3 meals off an order then bringing them out late and trying to charge us for them. Telling us its theft! Not if it's bad customer service.

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

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

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

We booked this hotel for one night, as our preferred hotel was full. On the day we were to arrive we read some very negative views on this hotel. However our fears were soon laid aside as our room was small but clean and recently decorated. The staff were pleasant at breakfast and we could not fault the food. The... More
