The hotel is refurbished and is clean and in a great location. Staff were friendly and attentive with a good standard of service. Parking can be tricky but there is a pay car park not far from the hotel and is not overly expensive. Room was comfortable but a few minor lack of attention to detail, broken fitment in shower...

We only stayed here for one night and to be honest I literally expected a bed and a breakfast and I was very pleasantly surprised. My better half booked this and I was thinking cheap and cheerful you know? We hiked all day in the lakes and were tired just looking for a hot shower, hot meal and bed. The...

A wonderful little place - quintessentially English cottage style and stunning decor - feels like luxury for a very reasonable price. It belongs to the red lion across the road which has a pub, cosy lounge with fire and a restaurant. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Lovely hot shower and comfy bed - an excellent base for walks in the...

We stayed at The little Inn formerly Ash Cottage part of The Inn at Grasmere over the road (formerly The Red Lion). The accommodation was nice clean and comfortable with a good breakfast provided in the main building. Parking could be a little hit or miss as there are not that many spaces to be had. Staff were good, We...

We had a lovely stay and would definitely stay again. I didn't give 5☆ rating as there was a hidden £10 per night charge for our dog (not mentioned when booked on booking.com) and although the freezing temperatures were be beyond anyone's control, our room (which was spacious, clean, comfortable with lovely views) was really rather cold. Luckily the staff...

Annex to the main hotel, in centre of Grasmere, nice size, well decorated room with view of the fells. Only drawback, the bed was too firm for our old bones after walking in the area. Staff were very sympathetic and moved us to the main hotel for the second night. Nothing wrong with the bed, just down to our preference.

Stayed here with our border terrier of 3 and a half years and it was a really relaxing stay. Not worried about leaving him on his own as he was with us during breakfast and during our pub meal during our full 2 night stay. No need to put him in the car or leave him in the room, a...

We stayed in the Balcony room. The Room was fabulous, spotlessly clean and views over the green. There were two downsides with the Little Inn. Firstly breakfast was served in the Inn at Grasmere (where you have to check in on arrival). In bad weather this would be a bit of a problem. The biggest problem is parking. Don't expect...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Little Inn at Grasmere, sister of the Grasmere Red Lion Hotel. Set in the Heart of Grasmere, The Little Inn at Grasmere Hotel enjoys the most outstanding & breath-taking views of the ever changing surrounding landscapes. We offer superior accommodation & full use of all of our sister Hotel, the Grasmere Red Lion Hotel's, facilities directly opposite. The Little Inn is the perfect local to be able to explore nature's outstanding beauty & central to the rest of the Lake District. Grasmere is Cumbria's most popular Village and the The Little Inn at Grasmere Hotel is set in the centre, bringing you into a haven of peace & tranquillity. Dine as the fancy takes you... our Courtyard Restaurant serves the pick of the Lake District Larder. For local ales and tasty bar meals nip next door to the snug Lamb Inn, our traditional village pub, the only one in the village. The Glass House conservatory bar, café & restaurant provides great food with beautiful views, or enjoy our traditional bar meals from The Little Inn itself. You will be spoilt for choice. At our luxury Lakeland hotel we provide you with all you could wish for, richly furnished, beautifully appointed rooms in which to unwind, two large outdoor seating areas to relax after a wonderful day's walk and friendly service to bring you refreshment while you drink in the Lakeland panorama. Boasting a gorgeous indoor heated pool, enjoy a morning dip before breakfast or a gentle early evening swim, between hiking the great outdoors and sitting down to dinner. If on the other hand your visit is of a business nature, we offer you the space and time to think in a completely fresh setting. Here at the Ash Cottage Hotel & Grasmere Red Lion Hotel you can get away from the everyday routine and enjoy a different view of conferencing. ... more   less
