We visited the badger bar yesterday, an unexpected day off work led to us visiting Grasmere for a day out. We previously read reviews on trip advisor, which all seemed very positive so we thought we would give it a go. There were quite a few customers in at the time we were which were all given the option to... More

Stayed in the Rothay room for two nights, and had a great time. The new shower room is lovely, although the shower pressure is a bit limited. The room is really comfortable and has a fantastic terrace. The main bed is only standard double width, so was a little bit tighter than we'd have liked, however. The best part of... More

We've just returned from a fantastic 3 night break in Ambleside in the Lake District. We stayed at the Glen Rothay hotel, a place we stayed at about three years ago but it's now got a new owner and the bedrooms have been re- furnished to a very high standard. We originally booked for two nights but rather than face... More

We couldn't have asked for a better location for our 2 night stay - although we wished we had stayed longer! Footpaths and trails started right by the hotel, with a choice of easy (for us townies!) and more challenging routes. The 555 bus stops 100 yards away - great for a trip into Ambleside or Grasmere without the car... More

My husband, daughter and I have just returned from the Glen Rothay. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay. We had the Windermere room which was great for us as a family as it has a separate single room within the main room. Everything was clean including the bathroom and the room had lovely french windows which opened out and... More

We decided to pay the Badger Bar a visit for an evening meal before driving home. My husband ordered the ploughman's platter, but unfortunately, he was informed that the salad was only available at lunchtime. However, the chef advised that he was more than happy to prepare one anyway for my husband. It was beautifuly presented and a generous portion... More
