This affordable and more than adequate B and B is a wonderful location. One is our party has limited mobility, and we had booked one of two ground-floor accommodations for her about 8 months ahead. She was able to walk into the town center several times. Having the car parked there was so convenient should she tire and we need to pick her up. The path behind the hotel takes a wonderful meadow and river Rothey journey, only about .3 mile to St. Oswald's. We were in Grasmere for the Rushgathering which was a wonderful processional and service at St. Oswald's. Our one day of totally fine weather was that last Saturday, and Grasmere was all a holiday village should be! We spent four nights at Grasmere Hotel: the breakfasts and one dinner we had were wonderful, the food hot, the service good, and the cuisine absolutely fabulous. Everyone was helpful in the dining room, from teaching us Americans about celeriac to getting the heat of everyone's milk for tea and coffee correct. The room staff is still in training. I was perfectly willing to reuse towels, but I put my washcloth in the shower stall indicating a new one was wanted, but never got one (granted, I am sure if I had called one would have appeared, but the timing for that never quite worked). Anton is a world-class chef; Rob is very helpful and busy. The public lounges are lovely. The garden is a wonderful retreat. The rooms are small, but that is what B and B is all about. Everything (but the washclothes) about the room was great. I even could figure out how to get BBC radio on the TV (loves the Sounds of the 60s as I dressed in the morning). Loved looking out my 3rd floor room on the garden. Sun rose early and stayed up late. Lovely Lake District hotel!
