Booked to stay after seeing a deal on booking.com in October. Got a superb deal of around £69 per night. Was given a gorgeous room in Ash cottage hotel. Room was spacious, VERY comfortable, king size bed. Bathroom was small but no different to a cosy ensuite. Dinner in the main hotel was outstanding and restaurant staff were super sweet... More

Slightly disappointing as when booking this hotel all the information on the website suggested that this was a stand alone sister hotel of the Red Lion with its own bar etc. On arrival we were temporarily stumped when we found the place locked up and in darkness. Although there were no signs to advise us we worked out to go... More

Ate dinner at the Ashcroft Hotel frequently during our stay in Grasmere. The food was excellent! The waiters, Daniel and Adam, were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for them despite the fact that they Were so busy. The food cooked by Ian was amazing as well. Will definitely be back!

We stayed here last weekend. Ash Cottage is now an annexe of the Red Lion. It offers bar meals; breakfast or the other hotel restaurant is over the road - which you may have to wait to cross at busy moments. Parking is a big problem. The hotel has about half the parking spaces to bedrooms and the car parks... More

Great quality food served by friendly helpful staff. Fantastic lunches with tasty baguette sandwiches! The coronation chicken was delicious. Efficient service, great location! hotel currently under refurbishment as its recently changed ownership. The outside area is great also, a real sun trap.

Took the family here again for an evening meal. Never dissapoints. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and arrived quickly and with a smile. The layout and decor of this restaurant is a real plus as it is well spaced out which is a bonus when you have two small children that need entertaining.

Found by chance - they don't advertise on the web, yet. Really friendly staff. Accommodation a bit 'eclectic', eg no bedside lights, yet. But wonderful room, lovely comfortable bed and the best breakfast we've had for very long time.
