The Inn at Grasmere
Ranked #6 of 14 Hotels in Grasmere
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 February 2008

Stayed in December 07 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Grasemere is a beautiful, quiet village.

The facilities of the hotel are excellent too, with heated pool and spa facilities, as well as a large residential lounge and a fantastic pub/bar attached to the hotel.

Only downside is that the room I booked was a little bit small, but, given the price, I couldn't have asked for more.

Stayed: December 2007

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Red Lion and what a superb stay it was.

I booked this hotel for my wedding anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The hotel is located in the centre of Grasmere and is a short walk, well to just about everywhere in the village.

The service from the staff was excellent as was the food.

This hotel seems to have recieved some outstanding reviews - unfortunately my experience of staying here was quite different. Some of the staff were verging on the rude and the room, while adequate was really a little shabby for the price - wouldn't recommend the place to anyone.

Just returned from a short break at this hotel. Our first time in the Lake District and we were very pleased. Our bedroom was well kept and clean with lovely views and the dining room, lounge and bar were a pleasure to sit in. The staff were very efficient. Our only slight quibble was that the hotel dinner on the first night was mediocre and we did not dine there again. However, breakfast was lovely and, unusually, was cooked to order, not on a buffet. Grasmere is small but attractive and quiet at night and this made for a very relaxing stay.

From walking through the door on day one until the moment we left we found all members of staff very professional.
The room was a little on the small side and the bathroom was a little cramped but it didn't take any of the shine away from our stay.
We had only one evening meal at the hotel and it was excellent as was the full english breakfast.
The residents bar prices at 30% above the normal bar prices seemed a little over the top but we had the choice and used it.
We feel sure that when the latest round of alterations are complete and the required building trades vacate the area The Red Lion Hotel will be the only place to stay in Grasmere.

We stayed at The Red Lion for 5 nights at the end of May. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly and we had a lovely welcome. The lounge and bar area are very impressive with plenty of room. Our room was actually very small, but adequate, and the jacuzzi bath was a blessing after the walking. I would however ask for a bigger room if we stay again. Breakfast was amazing - you could basically have anything you wanted. We ate there three of the nights and were treated very well and the food was delicious. The staff in the restaurant could not be faulted for breakfast or dinner. We also ate at Tweedies (which has amazing food) and the The Lamb - a bit too smoky for us but that should not be a problem soon. We loved Grasmere - such a beautiful quiet little village with stunning views all around. There are plenty of wonderful walks to do as well. We would definitley stay in both Grasmere and the Red Lion again.

Have stayed at the Red Lion around 15 times over the past two years and we never tire of it, (and doubt we ever will)
The hotel and staff are excellent with a great selection of food on offer !
We have stayed in double (with and without a spa-bath), club and the named rooms and each are up to a high standard.
The welcome you receive is second to none and al the staff are very attentive.
Whenever we have a bad week at work, a trip to the Red Lion is the prefect way to unwind and relax.
