Rothay Garden Hotel
Ranked #5 of 14 Hotels in Grasmere
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Having previously commented on the Rothay Garden some years ago, I thought I would revisit after the recent improvements made to the hotel especially the spa and upgraded dining facilities.
It is easy when you have previously thoughroughly enjoyed weekend breaks as a group, to return and attempt to be a bit critical, especially if standards have slipped in any small area, but this is impossible at the Rothay Garden.
A process of continuous improvement in the facilities on offer eg the new spa, the quality of service from the staff in the restaurant to the excellently prepared and cooked food at dinner and also breakfast, combined to make our weekend stay absolutely superb in every way.
The new spa is a first rate addition to the hotel. After a day on the fells to be able to relax in the spa pool with views of the mountains, followed by glass of sauvignon on the terrace and a sublime dining experience, comes highly recommended.
Negatives - None.I really cannot fault the place, The different category of rooms can be confusing. All rooms are different and individual. It may pay to consult the hotel before booking to ensure that needs are met.

We stayed at the Rothay Garden for 2 nights at the end of July and were thoroughly impressed. The room was very comfortable, clean and well presented with excellent amenities & even came with complementary robes & slippers for when the time came to head over to the spa for some serious chillaxing! The spa had a sauna, steam room, spa-pool, hot-beds and rain showers - perfect for soaking those tired muscles after a day on the fells. Speaking of fells...the "Fell Walker" breakfast is large enough to fill even those with the largest appetites, everything we tried on the menu was very tasty.

Overall, would highly recommend as a great place for a quiet getaway & we can't wait for our next trip!

Room Tip: Rydal room was spacious and would suit a couple.

We booked a one night stay from a Groupon offer to the Rothay Garden as we have stayed there previously and really enjoyed it. It is the only hotel we have ever been back to. The lady who I booked it with had an attitude and I felt that as it was an offer she wasn't interested , I nearly didn't bother. That aside the room was nice with a river view but the bed was very hard and uncomfortable. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the staff and service were very good. We didn't go into the spa this time but on our previous visit we did and it was very enjoyable. The hotel is very nice and I would like to go again next year as a little treat.

Room Tip: We stayed both times at the rear of the hotel with a river view but the rooms at the front overlooki...

We stayed two nights at the Rothay Garden last week and were both extremely impressed!
Our riverside suite was immaculate and had doors that opened onto the bank of the river.
The food in the restraunt was lovely and the service superb.
We really enjoyed the spa and the fantastic views through the floor to ceiling windows.
The staff were very efficient and helpful.
The attention to detail throughout the hotel showed the care and thought that had gone into every little thing.
A Very enjoyable couple of days.

this is a good hotel for short stays and is situated on the edge of Grasmere Village. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Dinner in the restaurant was very good.
Our room was at the back of the hotel with a very small terrace and a nice view over the river.
The room was on the small side but fine for a 1/2 night stay. The room was a little dark due to the interior decoration.
We would visit this hotel again.

Our third and most recent stay at Rothay Garden did not diappoint. We tried the newly refurbished Garden Suite on the recommendation of hotel staff.
The suite was spacious and had a lovely outdoor patio overlooking the gardens and spa. It's a close call to choose a favourite between this and the loft suite. Just a shame the bathroom wasn't as good (no tv in bath etc). The spa was very close and easy to access through the covered walkway. We didn't have any problems with the spa being too busy and had it to ourselves most of the afternoon!
We visited the nearby Tweedy's bar in the village in the afternoon before returning for dinner at Rothay which was fantastic as always. Breakfast was served to our room the next morning - equally delicious! Looking to book up and go again soon!

We booked into this hotel for our honeymoon but unfortunately had to put it back a day at the very last minute. The receptionist went out of her way to be helpful and not only allowed us to change the dates but even upgraded us when she found we had just married. The Garden Suite was lovely and the spa pool must have the best views in the country, directly overlooking the fells. We particularly want to mention Patrick who was welcoming and attentive. All in all, a beautiful hotel in a beautiful village
