We visited the Rothay Garden for a Saturday and Sunday stay to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We were in room 6 a Riverside suite. The room was a decent size with a huge bed. Nice modern decor. Modern shower room (no bath). Very nice toiletries. There were double doors that opened out into a small seating area and then big sliding patio doors that opened out into a small slate chipped area over looking a very pretty river with a fabulous backdrop of snow capped hills and fields. Nice bottled water and very nice chocolates were also provided. The usual tea tray with biscuits etc. there were also fluffy bathrobes and slippers to use if you chose to use the spa, which was gorgeous. A small covered walkway took you to the ultra modern and immaculately kept spa with a hydro pool, sauna, aromatherapy room and amazing heated tiled beds. Only a few people seemed to use the facility. We spent more than an hour each evening of our stay and it made it feel a very luxurious experience. We booked dinner for the first evening and it was a very high standard with four courses plus coffee and petit fours. At £40 per head this was not cheap but it was worth it for the standard of the food and presentation. My husband did sent his main course back as it was too cold to enjoy, and it was completely replaced, but there was no apology which was a bit surprising. Very extensive and comprehensive wine list. Breakfast was also very nice with an excellent choice of well cooked food. The kedgeree was lovely. The second evening we decided to eat at another hotel in Grasmere ( the Worsworth) and on balance we felt the food was better and slightly less expensive, but we were happy to be staying at the Rothay Garden.
We had a lovely stay and were blessed with glorious winter sunshine which made the Lake District experience at its best. I would stay at the RG again and would recommend it.
