    Excellent lounge

    Staff overworked and harassed so made mistakes.

  • Couple

    Location was brilliant. Situated in the heart of Grasmere.

    The room décor was out of date and scruffy looking. The room wasn't cleaned from the previous stay and when we complained we got sent to another room which was a single so we could refresh up for a friends wedding evening party at a near by hotel, again this room was also not made up from the previous stay. We did not check into our hotel room until 7.15pm. I've since complained to the hotel and not even had a reply. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Nice check in staff! Great room they upgraded us

    Nothing really - just a little attitude from the lady when I checked out, which was in contrast to the lady when I checked in - but really everything was great

    The Lamb Inn which is part of the hotel had draughts real ale, unfortunately I didn't find it till late on. Location is excellent for Grasemere shops, and is just round thd corner from Tweadies the only Grasmere bub in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

    Parking is a bit of a lottery on a Saturday. Our view was on to a wall above a table and chairs set out on a roof. Luckily no smokers went out there!

    The location, atmosphere and all staff were all excellent. Felt like you are really cared for

    One incident where were told it was ok to sit at a particular table for breakfast, started breakfast only for another member of staff to tell us to move as we could't sit there. Though this was more an aberration as for the rest of the trip customer service was excellent.

    Brochure in bedroom did not have vegetarian menu else might have had it also no diabetic marmalade on view tho to be fair altho I mentioned it on our booking I did not pursue it at breakfast

    Dog friendly, pleasant staff, comfortable bed and room. Not too formal.

    Cleanliness of bathroom Quality of bar food in attached public house (same ownership) - food was well overcooked.

  • Older travelers

    The location was good I was a little disappointed with the standard as I live in Alsager cheshire and was expecting the same standard as the Manor hotel. We did try to eat at the lamb in but found the sevice to be very poor. We waited one hour and five mins for our food to be served and then when the food did come it was not as advertised. I e hand cut chips tirned out to be frozen french fries and hot chocolate with cream and marshmellows turned out to be tepid chocolate and no cream or marshmellows, when I asked what had happened to the cream and marshmellows I was told I didnt request them even though this was advertised on the chalk board.i did find parts of the hotl to be dirty.

    Good Breakfast

    Having left my wife at home so I could spend two days riding around Yorkshire and the Lakes on my motorbike with a friend on his bike, and having spent 11 hours on the road, we were greated at the reception by "Biker prejudice" we were asked to give full details of our bikes in case of trouble! What trouble I asked I didn't get an answer. I then asked about eating in the restaurant it was made very clear to both of us that that would not be an option, as the pub next door would be better suited. Not good. The Wordsworth around the corner couldn't believe it when we told them. We had an excellent meal there with excellent service. I am a 62 year old business man and have toured Europe on my bike with my wife, never experienced anything like it. My daily transport is an slk 280 would that have been more suitable?

    Comfortable rooms, relaxing atmosphere and lovely staff. It is well located for access to all areas in Lake District and Grasmere is a lovely village

    Unless there are special offers, the cost is sometimes too high for me
