I have been a regular visitor to the Grasmere Hotel for a number of years, initially under previous ownership, and the experience just gets better and better. Rob and Anton have been in the hotel long enough now to really make their mark and to their eternal credit they have given it the real "wow factor" in every respect.
The room in which we stayed (Wordsworth) has been recently redecorated and refurnished to a very high standard and offered us total relaxation with a bed as comfortable as it was huge.
Anton's dinner menu is amazing - four wonderful courses imaginatively prepared and presented. The breakfasts are excellent too and really set you up for whatever the day holds.
Above all, the staff are extremely courteous and attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them.
All in all, this was a truly fantastic experience in a part of the world which is a favourite of mine - less than ninety minutes drive from home but it could have been on the other side of the planet.
In short, if you want to experience luxury accommodation, first class dining and total relaxation, I can think of no finer place than the Grasmere Hotel.
