I stayed here for 2 nights this week and thought the hotel was great. My room was on the front of the hotel and I found it a bit noisy in the morning but that would not put me off visiting again. The room was clean with tea and coffee facilities and it had a shower room. This was on... More

During our stay in the Lakes we decided to eat here one Sunday evening. The pub is situated on the very busy A591 so once you have parked your car be very careful of the traffic as you make your way to the front entrance. The road is extremely fast so just watch your step going in and out. The... More

Thank you very much for taking time to provide us with your feedback. I'm glad you have enjoyed the atmosphere of the Inn - we do try our best! We have a large private parking located at the property which means that you don't need to go anywhere near the busy road, I hope you have managed to find a... More

We stayed for one night at this lovely little pub. Plenty of car parking and greeted by a very friendly member of staff. We were shown to room 1 which was on the front and quite pleasant but on closer inspection the shower room was very small. I asked if we could have a room with a bigger bathroom and... More

While first impressions were really good as the rooms are nice and it's a nice quaint place I had a few issues which stopped me rating this any higher - there was no wifi despite it being advertised, my room was so hot that the 70mph winds outside and my open window didn't seem to make any difference so I...

Thank you very much for your honest feedback, I am very disappointed that the service you have received was not up to the standard expected. I would like to understand more about the extra charges on your bill - this is not something we do and I am really disappointed that an unexplained, additional charge has made it's way on... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights 2nd and 3rd of April. The room has everything you could need. Our room was at the rear with a great view of rolling hills and a field filled with sheep. A few nice personal touches through the room and we would stay here again. The staff are very friendly and approachable. They... More

Hello Paul, I'm really pleased to hear you have enjoyed your stay and found us to be friendly and approachable! Pulled pork is definitely one of my personal favourites as well, so it's always good to hear that others agree. We hope you'll be back in the Lakes in not too distant future! More

After a disastrous camping trip, found Travellers Rest on laterooms, expected a middle of the range inn / style hotel, which really didn't disappoint. Middle of the road, sums up our visit, Service from the staff was very scripted, clearly without any form of management on site, when issues did arise. Which tainted our stay. Firstly after showering we noticed... More

We returned here for the second year running when staying in Grasmere and this visit was just as good as last year. The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. Good pub surroundings and only a short walk from the village - well worth it.

I have previously reviewed The Travellers Rest Inn and after another recent visit, i felt compelled to just reinforce my past review. My family and i have never had any reason to complain or criticise and we always receive the warmest of welcomes. The staff are always polite and very friendly and in particular Michaela. Nothing is ever too much... More

I took my Mum here for an early Mother's Day treat on the Groupon Deal. Us and the dogs were greeted in the pub and helped upto our room which was at the back of the hotel looking out onto the countryside. The room was very clean and well presented and the bathroom was top notch too. They had complimentary... More

Spent one night at this quirky inn just outside Grasmere. Although on the main road to Windermere, the traffic noise didn't bother us. Most rooms overlook the road, but lovely views of the hills. Our room was simple but modern, clean and with good heating. Shower ensuite, plenty hot water. We ate our evening meal in the hotel bar by... More
