Stayed 2 nights recently in this hotel, which at £55 pppnight dinner, bed & breakfast in Grasmere is very good value. Rooms nicely appointed, superior ones with river view and trees. Easy parking and very good central location for Grasmere. Staff nearly all Eastern European and very pleasant & helpful. Manager Jane works 5 days a week from 8am ish to 3.30pm, but feel it needs more management, the owners of the hotel never seem to appear. Jane is excellent but of course isnt there all the time. Breakfast is excellent, best poached eggs I've ever had, and the full English great, presentation too is excellent. Dinner very good, starters not as good as the soup and main course, but overall very good food.
The advertised log fires sometimes fall short as unless the staff are told they dont maintain the one and only log fire, in the first lounge, which is lovely and cosy on a winters night, but the first night we were there it was allowed to go out, We told Jane who was quite cross and told the staff to keep it in, which they did the following day until dinner, which again it was almost out until my husband saved it. Everyone remarked what a difference a fire made to the room, the one in the other lounge is apparently never lit. Bit dated, but a comfortable hotel, without an awful lot of atmosphere though. Our king size bed was a little hard, but the room was lovely, plenty of tea & coffee, and lots of king size toiletries in the bathroom, also plenty of hot water. All in all we had a lovely stay, would just say it needs a bit more tlc.
