We stayed at the Red Lion in Grasmere for 2 nights at the end of May.
On arrival we were helped to find a parking space and checked in by a very polite receptionist, nothing was to much trouble, I asked for an iron and ironing board and it was deliverd to our room promptly. On the reception desk there is a folder with leaflets of plenty of walks around Grasmere village and beyond, we did the walk around the lake it was absolutely beautiful.
The rooms were nicely decorated although ours was a little on the small side (although our friends were on the top floor and had a much larger room) but our spa bath more than made up for it!
We ate in the hotel restaurant on the second night we did'nt know what to expect after reading previous reviews but I can honestly say it was delicious, good food, good wine along with very good service in pleasant surroundings.
Breakfast was also very good (and the hottest ever!), again very good service, good selection of fruit, cereal, bread etc and a hearty full english, plus other choices as the mood takes you.
We had a lovely time at the Grasmere Red Lion and would definitely stay there again without hesitation.
