“First and only...........”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

We were the first paying guests to stay in this hotel when it reopened as The Daffodil Hotel, unfortunately on that night we were the 'only' guests, and this is a big hotel to be rattling around on your own.
The hotel it's self is fabulous and clearly a lot of money has been spent here, however for us (and this is just our opinion) the hotel is just too modern for the lakes, there is no country charm with it (open fires, snug bars etc) but as i say this is our opinion only.
The bedroom was outstanding as you would expect in a new hotel, food was very nice too.
I am sure once the hotel gardens are complete and the interior has some pictures and other knick knacks added it will be a totally different place.
Would we stay again, probably not, but if you are looking for a modern hotel with clean lines and spa facilities this is going to be straight up your street.

my husband and i have just had a wonderful 2 night break at the daffodi.l We booked dinner for the first night intending to eat in Grasmere on the second however the meall was so good we chose to eat on the second night too! breakfast was excellent especially the scrambled egg and salmon and amazing choice of breads!!!, Our room overlooked the lake it was spotless and very comfortable.Spa facilities were of a very high standard.Staff were very friendly and very polite and proffessional and certainly will be booking again.

Room Tip: worth paying the extra for lake view

Valentines treat for me and hubby
so nice to relax in a clean friendly hotel with exra large bed and lovely large modern bathroom.

ate out in Grasmere but noticed that prices didn't seem too bad at the hotel so maybe eat there next time we stay.

Would definitely stay again maybe when the daffodils are out, but lovely to see the snow capped mountains lovely sight.

We have just spent one excellent night at the daffodil hotel. We found the staff extremley friendly and very helpful. Our room was nicely decorated and extremely spacious with a large comfortable bed. The food in the restaurant was exceptionaly good with lots of choice and proffesional staff. The hotel is in a lovely location with incredible views. Would recommend it to anybody.

We stayed for 2 nights in February DB&B and was our first stay since the refurb. I must say it was amazing! We won't be staying anywhere else in the Lakes from now on. A wonderful peaceful & relaxing atmosphere & location as well as excellent service and value.

The rooms are modern & spotless with Molton Brown toiletries, a power shower and separate bath. The room was spacious with a huge & comfy bed (standard room).

Dinner bed and breakfast is definitely worth it as the food and service excellent. You also get upto £30 each off the menu which easily pays for 3 courses. There is also a great choice including 3 vegetarian options each night.

The Spa is amazing and uses Germaine de Cappucini treatments & products- amazing!

Cannot recommend this hotel enough!

I really can not understand the way some people write pathetic complaints. This hotel was built last year. the food is lovely . The staff make a real effort. Every where was spotless. Lovely local views of the lake. Room was nice,warm ,modern ,spacious and very clean.Spa was a nice treat. Personally I could not knock the place. I will certainly return. My bed was so big I never felt the wife next to me all night magic.

Room Tip: No children allowed in the spa
