    An excellent break with good facilities and polite and attentive staff.

    Lovely location in the middle of Grasmere. Nice quiet hotel with great staff.

    Unfortunately I think the maid used a strange cleaner in the bathroom, as there was a sickening, rather overpowering smell coming from it. if the door was left open for any length of time, the smell would fill the room, inducing a headache.

    We just got back from our long weekend Easter vacation 3-night stay at the Wordsworth Spa hotel. We originally booked a room for 2 nights then we decided to stay for one more night simply because my husband love the hotel and restaurant, also the lovely surrounding. We’d say food was the catch – extraordinary cuisine with mouth-watering desserts! We’d recommend this beautiful hotel but keep in mind it’s not the cheapest hotel but the best location in Grasmere

    On our arrival, we were offered a selection of newspapers and then we found on our bill £3.50 for 3 newspapers! We think newspapers should be complimentary and not charged, as this is the normal practice in any 4* or 5* hotels worldwide. Also the SPA facilities were not available due to a personal bereavement, it would have been better if there was a replacement or other arrangement because we purposely booked the hotel to enjoy a SPA treatment! Not very convinced!

    Lovely building in a fantastic location. General cleanliness excellent. Staff very friendly.

    Room very stuffy with no view. Poor service at breakfast. Complaint re breakfast not dealt with to our satisfaction. Not worth cost of room Not 4 star standard

    The location is excellent, and staff most willing.The public rooms are lovely and the spa looks really inviting.

    The attention to detail was lacking. Hotel television did not recieve BBC1 and initially we were checked into a room that had a problem with an unpleasant odour. The restuarant food was very pretty however I felt it was slightly overpriced and underdelivered on quality.( The thrice fried chips were clearly steamed)

  • Group of friends

    Staff very friendly, decor good.

    Stayed in room 9 - was very hot even with no radiators on. Hot water pipes or vents run through the wall. Staff are aware of this as in the corridor opposit the door in they keep a fire exit door open 24*7. Breakfast was poor (on the menu says be patient as freshly cooked) - the cooked breakfast we had was luke warm and definately not cooked to order - suspect hot plates in the kitchen. On the morning of 31st Dec no hot water in our room. All in all, looks very nice but a few things letting it down.

    Very welcoming and friendly staff. Excellent breakfasts. Very comfortable room. Parking on site a major benefit.

    Can't think of anything. Small amount of noise - our room was over the kitchen. Early morning deliveries and disposal of bottles!

    location is excellent and staff were very helpful and polite

    the deco and furnishings in the dining room have lost all the luxury and elegance they once had - very downmarket now!

    A beautiful hotel set In the centre of Grasmere. Food and accommodation is excellent. Would highly recommend this hotel for comfort and style. Also efficient and friendly. Have been twice now.

    Location unbeatable Bathroom high end Staff friendly

    Pillows too soft. Bedroom decoration needs updating (but don't go too modern. Still need to maintain character) Kettle had damaged flex and overboiled - tea/coffee making facilities need updating. Lift - has character but does need updating. Price for lower end rooms a little steep given the view. May struggle to compete with The Daffodil

    Appears to be well run with the staff trying their best to make your stay comfortable. The location was superb with easy access to the town and surrounds.

    Location in the middle of Grasmere is excellent. Village view room was a good size.

    We went for a peaceful break but on the weekend we visited there was a very noisy group who spoiled dinner and breakfast for us and didn't encourage us to spend as much time in the hotel as we intended. To be fair to the hotel they must have realised that there was an issue and the following night the group were moved into a side room for breakfast and dinner - with the result of a more pleasant dining experience.
