The hotel came recommended and lived up to our expectations and more. Thank you for the friendly support after our accident where we came off our motorbike on route to the hotel. Superb service and will re visit.

This hotel is in the most amazing location. The staff were very courteous, helpful and attentive. The food was also very good and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend staying here if you want to get away from it all.

Great hotel, great food with excellent service from staff (especially Jemma on reception). Have stayed at a few hotels/inns in the Lake District but will definitely be returning to this hotel again soon.

This I think is the best hotel I have been to in Grasmere and the views when you walk out the doors of the hotel are to die for. The staff are all amazing the way they go out of there way to look after you and the food in both the bar and restaurant are wonderful. I would have... More

Nice hotel / pub. Staff need a little more training in customer care & service etiquette . poor bar food. My concerns were raised with the manager & my issues were resolved. A new menu is being served

1st visit for about 40 years and wasn't disappointed. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, fabulous rooms with high quality furnishings and great show in my room. Delicious and varies breakfast - all hot food cooked to order (who would want a self-serve breakfast bar?). Friendly staff, plenty of parking. Lovely four day chillax.

We stayed just one night in a feature room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely with a new bathroom and a large Queen sized bed. We had breakfast and dinner and both were excellent. Good food and good service. Thankyou.

Have stayed here several times and this visit was possibly the best. A warm welcome on check in, complimentary Canales and process in room got our stay off to a welcoming start. An excellent evening meal from a well varied menu preceded a comfortable nights sleep and a good well cooked breakfast. All in all a most enjoyable experience. Thank... More
