The hotel was recommended by a friend so when it came up as a Living Social offer, we jumped at the chance to try it out. We stayed the previous 2 nights in Borrowdale & tagged this on to make it a longer break. Although just 1 night, it was enough to get a good feel for the hotel & its facilities. It's not a traditional Lake District hotel but a modern contemporary boutique style hotel, which we actually prefer. The room was very nice, although a little dark due to the bed being much further back from the window & round the corner. The bathroom was lovely with a very nice large walk-in shower.
The room had a large balcony complete with furniture, overlooking the stream & gardens - although too cold to enjoy in February, it was lovely & very quiet.
We decided to try out the spa which was a lovely bonus, although more than 2 couples at a time would be a bit overcrowded.
We went down for pre-dinner drinks - the bar stocks a good selection but no draught ales - only bottles. Prices were reasonable. Dinner was extremely good - plenty choice & very nicely presented. The chef should be commended for his attention to detail & the quality of food served - we both thoroughly enjoyed all 4 courses. The dining room itself is nicely laid out & you don't feel too close to other guests.
Breakfast was also very enjoyable & plentiful. I opted for the porridge, which came with a separate little jug of cream & 1 of maple syrup - delicious. The cooked breakfast was also excellent & the basket of toast' croissants & pain au chocolat was a nice touch.
We loved Grasmere & will certainly be coming back, & when we do, we'll be staying at this hotel.
