While some areas of this hotel feel like they've looked the same for 40 years, the suite we stayed had a contemporary design that was almost gaudy in its modern mix of purple and silver. But the room was spacious and luxurious, and the general amenities like the conservatory sitting area and spa/pool, were very pleasant. We got an excellent... More

Hotel beautifully appointed in centre of Grasmere. Staff very friendly, polite and attentive, breakfast plentiful with numerous choices to suite most tastes. The accommodation left a little to be desired in our particular room 26 although decor was good the room had been updated with a new LED main light which did not totally switch off leaving the sadly room...

We booked a short stay at the Wordsworth Hotel for our 50th wedding anniversary, we had stayed at a couple of the hotels in Grasmere over the years but this one was by far the best. On arrival the reception staff were polite and friendly, our room was not quite ready so we had a pot of tea in the... More

We were up-graded from an executive room to a junior suite on arrival and were shown up (no help with the baggage) to a very large room overlooking the front of the hotel. There were the various amenities you would expect including TV/DVD, tea/coffee making facilities etc. The bathroom was modern and clean, but the furnishings in the room were... More

I have been coming to the Wordsworth Hotel for more than twenty years. We were married there seven years ago and this break, with our four year old daughte,r was an anniversary treat. We were very disappointed and are unlikely to return despite the sentimental attachment. What's good about it? It was well maintained, clean and the pool was excellent... More

We stayed at the Wordsworth for two nights to celebrate my 60th birthday in August. The hotel had ample parking and the hotel was clean and staff very pleasant, courteous and friendly at all times. We stayed on a deal which included a classic room with a two course bistro meal one night and a meal in the Signature restaurant... More

We came here for a weekend based on two nights accommodation for two with breakfast and evening meal. One night in the signature restaurant and one night in the bistro restaurant. We also received a bottle of prosecco in the room on arrival. The room was small but clean and comfortable. Both restaurants were good but we favoured the slightly... More

Spent a couple of days at this lovely hotel. Great location by Grasmere lake in the village. Perfect for exploring the Lake District. Friendly staff made the short stay very special. The restaurant was very nice too serving a high quality breakfast and dinner. Nice to have a pool and spa. Will visit again.

My wife and I have just come back from a weekend in this hotel. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great which didn't help with the overall experience but my main point is on the staff (not very helpful or friendly) and a very small room. We booked a superior room, which turned out to be a room with a village view,... More

We have previously stayed in Grasmere at The Daffodil Hotel and Spa. We've always admired the Wordsworth as it has a prime location in the centre of Grasmere and lovely looking gardens. This break was booked though Off Peak Luxury and was a 2 night break at the hotel in a standard room, with dinner in both of the hotel's... More
