This is a new hotel (only open for three weeks when I visited with my partner) so there are still a few things needing attention - and which they are entirely open about, so for that reason I didn't find that a negative, they positively welcomed (asked for) feedback on everything, and did it in person rather than box ticking questionnaires. So that tells you the sort of people who are staffing the place - genuinely wanting to have satisfied guests. And we were indeed very well satisfied. Stayed in a room overlooking the lake, with a small balcony, and the view was stunning. Inside, the room was large and well equipped and as comfortable as any I've stayed in, including others at more than twice the price. The grounds are still in the process of being landscaped, but they are so big that unless you're hard to please that isn't likely to affect your stay. The food in the restaurant has a lot of locally sourced ingredients and traditional dishes, is well cooked and served up by pleasant people who are up for as much or as little conversation as you want to have. And the ambience of the restaurant, like the rest of the place, is well designed and congenial. The only thing we didn't try out was the spa facility, but that looks to be as impressive as the rest of it. Grasmere village centre is a short walk from the hotel (five minutes or so), and that is one of the less commercialized places in the lake district. Overall, a great venue: I can confidently say that we'll be back - and it won't be long before we are.
