My partner and I stayed at the Daffodil hotel from 6-8 September on a superb
2night special offer. When we arrived we were pleased to see how nice the
hotel looked, the reception area is huge and all so new and modern. We were
given a free room upgrade on arrival to a Fell view room which was lovely.
The bedroom was large and had been decorated/furnished to a very high
standard. The bed was super king and has to be one of the comfiest we've
slept in, including the pillows! A kettle is provided in the bedroom with an
assortment of hot drinks and biscuits. The bathroom again, was done to a
very high standard with a separate shower and bath, including a nice mirror
which lit up and Molten Brown toiletries which was a nice touch.
The SPA is fabulous, I would highly recommend spending time in there, the
spa pool is huge, with several hydrotherapy jets, it was bliss! The steam
room is the largest I've ever been in and again it's all been finished to a
The restaurant is located on the first floor, with beautiful
views overlooking the fells and lake, we had breakfast on both mornings,
which was really good with a large selection of cooked food as well as
continental. We had an evening meal on our second night and it was
delicious, very good menu and all at a reasonable price. We had drinks in
the hotel bar on both nights which was nice but could do with some more
tables as we had to wait for a seat on the Friday evening.
I have to mention the restaurant and bar manager, Swabnil, he was so helpful and pleasant,always a smile on his face, we had a few conversations with him about the hotel and he really does care about the running of the hotel. He always spoke so positive, he's a credit to
the Daffodil and we enjoyed our conversations with him, thank you!
The hotel is located just on the edge of Grasmere village so it's within a
five minute stroll into the village. Grasmere is a lovely place with a good
selection of little shops, restaurants and bars, and of course nice scenery!
I would recommend Tweddies bar, good food and a nice atmosphere. We had a
great stay at the Daffodil hotel, I wish it well for the future and hope to
