Booked in here to overnight after Day 3 of my Coast to Coast walk. Check-in was easy. All staff were friendly/helpful. The food at dinner [steak and kidney pudding] was superb. The bedroom was perfectly adequate for an "inn with rooms" with a good shower. The radiators in the bedroom are always on [but turned down to zero] so if... More

Having stayed here for three nights and explored Grasmere we found this Inn to be a great find. Very friendly staff from behind the bar to waitress and cleaners (very clean). If u don't mind a short 15 min walk into the village or the closeness to a road then this is a must place to stay in wonderful Grasmere!!!

Passed here many times over the past 10-15 years and never even thought to stop even though it look great from outside. Went on holiday this year and wondered why the hang we hadn't stopped before now. Setting was truly authentic and so welcoming. Menu whilst not as vast as we've seen in other places still had you pondering what... More

The Inn is located just outside Grasmere just by the road yet still manages to give an impression of authenticity and cosiness. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The kitchen/restaurant is popular and good. One thing I have to mention is that since it is an old building, some of the doorways are a bit low. This is definitely... More

We wanted somewhere to rest our weary heads during a active weekend, and The Travellers was ideal. Situated just outside Grasmere it was near all the attractions in the lakes. We arrived late afternoon and were quickly checked in, Room small but big enough for what we wanted. Nice comfy bed and good sized bathroom with powerful shower. Road was... More

Was ok but not as special as other places we have stayed. Food was good and convenient location for getting around. The road was noisy and did spoil the peace a little, we had a room at the back to try and avoid the noise of the road but with a side window too we could hear it - it... More

We stayed two nights and found the staff friendly and welcoming, and our room at the back was comfortable with views over the hills and no traffic noise. For us, it was an excellent location as we planned our walks straight from the door. Both evening meals were tasty, and there were some good local beers. The only small disappointment... More

Stopped here for a meal on 1st July 15. Fantastic steak menu and fantastic beer selection. The staff were very courteous especially the barman who was very busy but had time to recommend the beers and food. Fantastic views from outside

Room 5 spacious with superb huge shower ( no baths at inn) and comfy if low king bed. Décor ornate and faded fake rococo not to our taste, but room bright and airy. Location quiet ruralish despite being on main road lovely views and cattle/sheep out the back. Maybe 20 to 30 mins walk to Grasmere. Food varies first night... More

Dear frequantlyflyerSeaford, Thank you for taking time to review our Inn.
