We spent the weekend after valentines here and thoroughly enjoyed it. It rained all weekend so we spent more time than we normally would have in the hotel, but it wasn't a problem. The staff are fantastic, they are naturally friendly, attentive to the right degree and very well trained. The hotel itself is in great condition and seems to have been refurbished recently. Our 'valley view' room was a good size, immaculately clean and did have a lovely view. Little touches in the room were good too: great shower, local teas and biscuits and (always a winner for me) plug sockets next to the bed. My only slight gripe is that the food is good but not great, which it should be for the price. But I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We have just returned from a 2 night break at the Daffodil and after many years of visits to the Lakes, staying in hotels, apartments and cottages we have found the ideal base. I remember the building as a tired, shabby hotel in days gone by, but the change that has now taken place is remarkable. Step inside to a modern, impressive hotel with all the luxuries you could wish for. From the first welcome in reception to the restaurant staff you realise you are in a family owned hotel who care about you. My husband has walking difficulties and needs 16 hour a day oxygen so finding somewhere that can help us with these issues and also provide a break for me is something we strive to find. At the Daffodil, all our needs were handled with such care and attention, it put other hotels in the shade. Our room was large with a full length window view to the lake. The bathroom had a huge bath and a separate shower. The bed was enormous and so comfortable. The food was excellent, with very good service - if a little pricey. But we have to pay to have all the other bonus points! Sitting on the terrace, watching the sun go down over the fells with a glass of wine was just magic. Thank you - we will be back!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake or the vale of Grasmere have super views.

Just back home after a lovely couple of days staying at this lovely hotel located just outside the village of a Grasmere. We stayed in a superior lake view room and I just wish I could wake up to that view every morning. Room was spotless, hotel very quiet at night, bed very comfortable - no complaints.

We spent valentines at the Daffodil and was very impressed with the hotel and spa. The bed was the biggest bed i have ever slept in. The shower was great. Grasmere is only a short walk away with some nice coffee shops etc. The lake view was very impressive (shame it was raining) would be very nice summer. Food was ok

Stayed here for a Thursday Friday visit was greeted by a friendly helpful receptionist who was very informative. We had lake view room which had lovely views out over the Lake to the fell beyond the room was comfortable warm and well furnished with some nice touches like water and excellent coffee not instant the spa was great but book ahead and our treatment s were veery good breakfast although buffet was fantastic even the eggs which are usually rubbery were fine and the quality of the ingredients like bacon and sausage very high. Parking plentiful and an easy walk to Grasmere or up onto the Fells so you don't have to travel to walk anywhere very enjoyable

Room Tip: Lake view best
