Even on a business trip it's always nice to have one off the beaten path stay. And for an American this place had lots of character, a warm welcome and friendly staff. We also booked the winter break special from the McDonald Hotels website with 10.00 credit. What a fantastic offer. Breakfast was delicious and we had dinner in the bar each night. Our room was clean and comfortable with a most beautiful view. After spending several rainy days touring there was a warm welcoming fire and sitting area. It was the perfect way to end an overseas business trip. Now if only we could return during a warmer (yet not crowded) time of year. I would recommend The Swan and Grasmere as a destination for all my friends and family. Thank you for making us feel at home.
