“Perfection !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Our bedroom was very spacious, light and airy. The furnishings were very luxurious and stylish and the bed and pillows were the most comfortable we have ever slept in at a hotel.
The bathroom was huge with modern fittings and tiling which all looked very expensive. It also had under floor heating and a huge towel with plenty of thick, fluffy white towels and beautifully smelling soaps etc.
The two lounges – are also beautiful with lots of original features, two log fires and lots of cosy sofas and chairs.
Food and restaurant – same superb standard of furnishings and the food is amazingly packed full of flavour, beautifully presented and amazingly not expensive. We had pre-dinner canapés followed by a four course meal and coffee for approx £20 per person (residents price). We previously priced and ate food in various restaurants / bistros in Grasmere Village and a typical rib eye steak is around £19 and is not a patch on Anton’s cooking. We also previously ate at a celebrity restaurant and Anton’s food was better by far.
The hotel is immaculate, the service is very attentive and food / drinks were always served promptly. Rob, Anton and their team pay a lot of attention to detail and are genuinely very helpful.

Just returned from a fantastic weekend in the Lakes. You couldn't ask for more at The Grasmere Hotel. The rooms are superb, immaculately clean and trendy in a sympathetic way. The food is great and Rob and his team make you feel welcomed and relaxed. They even put our walking boots in their boiler room to dry off. The sweetest thing of all was having a chocolate bunny under our teacup at breakfast. It's this attention to detail and thoughtfulness make a big difference. Would definitely recommend and we will be back. One last but not least thing is the food, both dinner and breakfast were great - can't fault the place.

Room Tip: Beatrix room is spacious with power shower and sunny in the morning

Just returned from a short break , the hotel and food were superb. Rooms recently refurbished were of an excellent standard and the underfloor heating was a welcome relief from the temperatures outside.
We will be returning later in the year without a doubt.

Room Tip: The Dequincy room we had was very roomy at the top of the hotel and beautifully decorated.

We stayed at the Grasemere Hotel last week ( a lull between The storm on the weather front), We have stayed there lots of times last year but over the winter they have invested in the rooms and bathrooms , and we must say have done a first class job. the rooms and the hotel look stunning.

Rob and his team were as welcoming as ever, and you couldn't wish for better presented and quality of food and service. The lounge is a warm welcoming area where you can exchange your thoughts of your days spent walking in and around the Grasemere area with other like minded people.

It is a pleasure to go to an Hotel where they remember you and appreciated you as both a friend as well as a customer.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel look onto the river, rooms at the front look at the hills

Just returned from a brilliant five night break. Since our last trip, the hotel has undergone a huge refurbishment programme. No expense has been spared, rooms are much bigger, they are equipped with sumptious bathrooms with underfloor heating and superb double showers. The interior design is very tasteful, new memory foam beds have been installed. If Grasmere wasn't so beautiful you wouldn't want to leave this luxurious, but comfortable hotel. Rob is a marvellous host, nothing is too much trouble, Anton's meals are "to die for" - after each meal I say "that's my favourite!" The menus provide lots of choice and the desserts - sticky toffee pud, Grasmere gingerbread ice cream tart, apple and rhubarb crumble and many more are delicious! Also can't forget the brilliant staff, John, Barbara, Dominic, and the staff behind the scenes - who all beaver away to make your stay with them so special. Lovely, friendly owners, welcoming, helpful staff,
superb food and wine, comfortable warm surroundings and a beautiful location make this hotel a treat not to be missed - be warned!! Ann and Eric Ridley, Seaton Carew, Hartlepool.

Stayed for 2 nights mid-week in March.

As recent reviews; all the bedrooms and bathrooms have been refurbished to a high standard.

Great hosts, excellent well-presented food at dinner and breakfast, good location for the village and access to walks.

We would definitely return. Couldn’t fault it, and it's very, very rare that I give anything all five dots, as you can see from my other reviews.

A really excellent place to stay - the rooms are clean and well appointed - also warm and cosy. The food is excellent and there is something new every night. The staff are pleasant and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is well placed for the local walks: meaning that you do not have to use the car. Wet walking gear is kept in the drying room. We will most certainly return.
