We visited here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Everything was just perfect. The room was lovely. The staff brilliant nothing was too much trouble. The cooked breakfast was a great way to setup for a day sightseeing. We also ate in the restaurant which was equally good. Would recommend and we will definitely be coming back..

Stayed in room 4, advertised as a garden room which is a little optimistic for what was essentially a patio in a car park/bin area... However, the room itself was absolutely lovely: spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, and a modern bathroom with a great shower and bath. The main hotel looks just as smart - but for us, the service and... More

The room here number 5, here is superb and beautifully updated overall but it does need some minor touch ups. It's still not a finished product although they say it's only minor work but there's more than we were led to believe. Particularly at the front of the building in the common areas and you have to go across the... More

The Little Inn has recently been refurbished and is wonderful! We had a room which was on the ground floor with patio doors and a view over the village green. Very clean and spacious. Breakfast was across the road in the hotel where staff were very helpful and friendly. Having breakfast in the bright conservatory was a lovely start to... More

We decided to head to Grasmere for a couple of days during the week and settled on booking the supreme double room with balcony at the little inn at Grasmere. Formally the Ash cottage hotel and now an annex of the Red lion across the road. The room was spectacular, very well appointed, spacious and very comfortable. Due to renovations... More

No issues with room, it was comfortable and good. It would nice to know renovations taking place and we had to check in at the Best Western Red Lion and take breakfast there, it does seem that it is going to be part of the best western. Breakfast whilst sufficient was a little disappointing when they advertise Cumberland sausage and... More

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

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.

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.
