Certificate of Excellence
For a taste of luxury in the glorious heart of lakeland. Set deep in the heart of Wordsworth country, our Lake District Hotel, traditionally an historic inn playing host to travellers since 1769, 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 air and glorious open countryside for company. Here, life is beautiful. Our service is friendly and attentive, the atmosphere relaxed. At our home we provide you with all you could wish for - beautifully appointed bedrooms, an excellent choice of food, a gorgeous indoor heated pool with spa bath, sauna and fitness room.

Room was great. Food was very good. Service at breakfast was mixed, although it was very busy. Beer choice was great. Used the pool and spa which again was excellent. Really enjoyed the stay. Will certainly return

Hi I’ve emailed a complaint (twice) and had know acknowledgement or reply. Can someone please reply?
Hi Sarah I had a complaint back in Easter and nobody responded so I sent again as I like everything in writing The response was very matter of fact and left me very upset I left a review on here and didn't respond we have stayed here 6 times and I will never ever return the staff were so miserable it was depressing apart from the lovely French man on reception I not sure if it's been took over but the standards have definitely changed and I honestly don't think they care and are very inexperienced I would keep perusing it and may be post a letter and call I tried to find a owner but couldn't seem to online I can also recommend the daffodil at grasmere we went in August and the total opposite to the inn the staff couldn't do enough for you Hope this helps you C

Hi , are dogs allowed in rooms to stay or just in the pub area ?
Hi. Yes plenty of dogs all sizes and breeds stayed in the rooms. I believe its extra cost to have your dog stay about £20/ night.
