Having stayed at the Red Lion in Grasmere many times in the past, my husband and I thought we'd try the Wordsworth for a change. As much as we like the Red Lion, I have to say that the Wordsworth was even nicer, and the winter break deal is excellent (including 4 course meal on first night and cream tea the next day).
The standard rooms weren't available so we stayed in a 'Mountain and Garden view' room which was really lovely, and the views were stunning. Bathroom was finished to a high standard and was a good size.
The 4 course meal was excellent and delicious. The range of breakfast items was very good and food very good. The conservatory and lounges are lovely and comfortable.
My only criticism is that the spa facilities were a little disappointing, compared with the Red Lion anyway. The pool is nice, but the changing room and the room in which the swimming pool is are really chilly! We had hoped to sit in that area for a bit and read post-swim (there's nice chairs in there), but it was too cold. The jacuzzi barely works (although is a welcome, toasty temperature) and you can't get to the sauna from the pool area, you have to go back out into the hotel corridor to get to it, which we found rather inconvenient and odd. The sauna itself is very good, however.
If they could just improve the spa facilities area, I would give this hotel 11 out of 10; it really is a fabulous place to stay!
