Reviewed 15 September 2011

We have just returned from a week’s holiday at Bridge House Hotel. This was our second time with them, and on both occasions we have had a very pleasant stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and always kept very clean, as is the whole of the hotel. The menu was varied, and the kitchen runs like clockwork with no long waits for anything.
The staff are pleasant and helpful, in particular the two very pleasant waitresses who served us in the restaurant. I would recommend this hotel as being very good value for money.

We stayed here ten years ago. It was a nice hotel with great food and service. We stayed last week. Its still a nice hotel, but the food is not great but still good and the service is not great but good.The hotel was family run and owned last time. It may be family owned now, but, its certainly not family run. Still, I suppose the labour now employed is cheap labour.

For three nights, the desert menu was the same. Seems that the hotel was nowhere near full and they had made a huge sticky toffee pudding so it was on the menu for three nights.

All that said, we had a nice stay. Maybe ten years or longer before we go again though.

Room Tip: If you have room 2,3 or 4, make sure you take earplugs if you like to sleep with the windows open.

If you want good food and a relaxing place to stay in the Lake district at a reasonable cost then this hotel is for you! Situated right in the centre of Grasmere it is set within its own quite extensive grounds featuring plenty of wildlife. The rooms are very clean and the bathrooms supplied with locally produced organic shower gel and handwash products in JUMBO sizes and of outstanding quality (no pathetic little bottles or sachets).
Our stay included dinner (4 courses) as well as breakfast. You will not need much else to eat all day - the quality of the food is excellent and varied with choices, unlike many hotels where you sometimes wish you hadn't booked half board but just had the breakfast.
This is not a hotel used by coach companies (as far as we could tell) which means that the decor is in good condition and the ambience is one of staying in a country house but with no need to dress up for dinner unless you want to! Relax in front of a log fire in winter after enjoying the numerous walks in the area. Most visitors seem to come for the walking although we didn't on our first visit the year before. On our second visit we couldn't get enough of the great countryside surrounding this excellent hotel. Good value for money if you book for several nights and include dinner - you won't regret it!

An impromptu trip to Grasmere and a random choice of hotel turned out to be very successful.All of the staff were very friendly and helpful.Room 3 was large with plenty of storeage space and had a really nice en-suite with many accessories.On the river side of the hotel it was very relaxing to have the sound of the river Rothay to lull you off to sleep. Breakfast was fairly standard but well presented and tasty.Evening meal was really very good,four courses with an excellent choice, plus coffee. Plenty of car parking space. Small bar with a lager and real ale on draught.

Room Tip: ask for a riverside room

I stayed at the Bridge House Hotel with my husband for a long weekend - after my sister and husband (who have stayed in every hotel in Grasmere) had recommended it to us as the best Grasmere hotel. It was perfect! lovely room, superb food - and particularly like pre-ordering dinner - such a good idea and don't know why more hotels don't do this.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional - nothing was too much trouble.
2 very comfortable lounges to relax in. Our first vist but most certainly won't be our last!
