I stayed at the hotel in April 2017 with my husband. We loved the style of the place, it looked like it had been recently refurbed. It's in a great location, we didn't need to get in the car once all weekend, everything you need on your doorstep. A highlight for us was the breakfast, it was a good range...

Great hotel with wonderful staff. Stayed in a double club room. Furnished and decorated very modern and smart. Great view on balcony. Food looked great but we didn't eat here. Bar area very comfortable and reasonably priced. Would 100% come back again.

We ended up here for one night over the Easter weekend by default.We were moved from the little inn over the road because the place was so disgusting.People seem to mixing up where they have stayed, as the photos shown in the reviews are the refurbished inn at Grasmere, when the little inn is supposed to be getting all bathrooms...

The hotel was lovely, more so if you are a dog lover as there were plenty of them staying in the hotel. Our room was really comfortable and quiet, rather warm though.The food was good , but a shame the specials menu was not changed daily as the choice was slightly limited.The location is great next to Grasmere lake and...

Stayed here after a long walk and enjoyed the spa and our comfortable bed. The hotel was cozy and we were well looked after. My only gripe was the food in the restaurant which was mediocre and not the comfort food we needed after all that exercise.

We stayed at the inn at Grasmere for three nights recently. We were checked in by a young lady who stopped half way through checking us in to have a conversation with some builders- for which we received no apology. Our room was nice, obviously refurbished and had enough room for us and our two dogs. The hotel is very...

My husband and I had a very rare child free weekend away for Easter. I chose very carefully where we were staying as we needed time to relax. We arrived and had nowhere to park and were told that parking is limited so had to pay to park in the village car park. The internet was down and unfortunately my...

Hotel is in a great position, in a lovely village. The hotel is adequate but very impersonal with not very friendly staff. Food is just ok and drinks are expensive. They allow dogs but if you take one it seems you get a room that has not been refurbished. The room was dated with a very cramped bathroom.

The recently refurbished superior room was excellent value, very spacious and comfortable. During our stay we didn't use the restaurant and only had one drink in the lounge. This was primarily due to the presence of dogs in the public areas. The only reference on the website to the hotel accommodating dogs is on the tariff page - which we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For a taste of luxury in the glorious heart of lakeland. Set deep in the heart of Wordsworth country, our privately owned Lake District Hotel, traditionally an historic inn playing host to travellers for centuries, offers you a warm, genuinely hospitable welcome that makes you feel instantly at ease and at home as soon as you step through the door. Idyllically situated right in the centre of Grasmere, with magnificent views of the hills all around, you can enjoy being part of village life one minute and the next, be miles away, with just the fresh Lakeland air and glorious open countryside for company. Here, life is beautiful. As you would expect from the long traditions, our service is friendly and attentive, the atmosphere relaxed and easy where you can enjoy a board game or two in the air-conditioned lounge area or browse the papers, while from the conservatory you can gaze at the ever-changing Lake District landscape. At our luxury Lakeland Hotel we provide you with all you could wish for - richly furnished, beautifully appointed bedrooms, an excellent choice of food, a gorgeous indoor heated pool with spa bath, steam room, sauna and fitness room. For centuries the hotel has been a haven for travellers, with tasty fare, great ales and warm hospitality. Today we pride ourselves in offering traditional food in harmony with modern cooking. Enjoy a cosy and relaxing atmosphere in the snug Lamb Inn with a pint of hand-pulled traditional beer and a tasty bar meal to satisfy even the heartiest of appetites. Dine in splendor in our 1769 Restaurant with our table d'hote dinner menu offered every evening, where the menu is depicted by the seasons and the fresh produce available. Our Chef will cater for any dietary requirements and is always happy to cook your favourite dishes (with a little notice of course). The Easedale Bar, The Glass House Conservatory and Helvellyn Lounge offer a comfortable spot to watch the world go by, enjoy a scrumptious snack at lunchtime or a spot of afternoon tea. We provide you with all you could wish for. Richly furnished, beautifully appointed rooms in which to unwind, most with sparkling spa baths to ease tired limbs after a wonderful day's walk. And friendly service to bring you a refreshment, while you drink in the Lakeland panorama. All rooms have en-suite facilities, television with satellite channels, wi-fi, CD player, ipod docking station, a welcome refreshment tray, direct dial telephone, hairdryer and trouser press. Our Club rooms feature separate comfy seating areas with television, bathrobes, slippers, complimentary bottled water and daily newspaper. The view from these rooms is of the village and the lush green fields beyond. Some of our rooms enjoy small balconies where you can sit and enjoy a relaxing drink, read a book or simply take in the view. ... more   less
