My husband and I enjoyed a lovely Easter break at the Grasmere Hotel. Rob, Anton and team all work very hard to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing, and are attentive without ever being intrusive.
We stayed in Shelley, which has a lovely window seat view of the garden and river at the bottom of the garden, and further afield to the fells. Recently renovated, the bedroom is well laid out with plenty of storage space (so often lacking in many places) and has a large extremely comfortable bed. The bathroom (with shower over bath) is very nicely decorated and the shower really delivers.
When we booked we opted for the bed, breakfast and evening meal package, and were really glad that we had done so. It was very enjoyable to return to the hotel at the end of the day, then not have to go out again in search of an evening meal. The food is absolutely brilliant – lovely flavours, beautifully presented, and the homemade bread is really lovely. There is a very varied wine list and reasonable prices, and dessert wise I really do recommend the Grasmere gingerbread ice cream tart.
We enjoyed our stay so much so that before we left we booked to return next Easter and are looking forward to our second stay at the Grasmere Hotel. Thank you very much Rob, Anton, John and co, see you next year!
