Booked deluxe double room. Big spacious room with huge double bed. Very warm and comfortable. All hotel facilities were available. Staff were very polite and helpful. Only down fall was the breakfast dinning area could not cope with volume of people staying. Although the breakfast was very nice. All in all a great place to stay. Will definitely stay there...

A little hard to find as it is not "The Inn" and the "Red Lion" is only a small sign above the hotel door.... think that should be made clearer on the website. Lovely hotel, good food which was reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly and very helpful, nothing was to much trouble for them which was a...

Stayed here a few years back and the renovations to the rooms are terrific. Excellent room with outlook of the mountains, with a fabulous spa bath. Large flat screen tv in room, coffee facilities and biscuits as well. Wifi as well. All toiletries supplied. Meals are excellent there as is the breakfast. So much variety.

The Hotel was wonderful and the staff were even better, normally when we have trips away we like to explore different restaurants, we found ourselves eating in the restaurant every night as the food and service were fantastic. After a long days walk, to be greeted by friendly staff, have a dip in the pool or Jacuzzi followed by a...

Really lovely stay at The Red Lion, the room was comfortable but could have done with a spruce up, the bathroom was a little tatty, it was very clean, just the finishing touches need sorting out. Also it's very warm even with the radiators turned off, I needed to keep the window open (in November). Car parking is a bit...

Our first stay at the Red Lion and it will not be our last. The hotel is superbly located in the centre of Grasmere, with free parking available. The hotel is very smart inside and out and the restaurant should be congratulated on the variety and standard of the meals. An excellent stay in a very comfortable room.

Well decorated hotel, comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Staff excellent, breakfast ditto. The bedroom had a small sitting room with a view over the fells. We will ask for this room the next time we stay in the Lake District.

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
