Reviewed 20 February 2013

Just got back from a 2 night stay in February. It was my first visit to the Lakes and I was not dissapointed. The hotel staff were polite and friendly. The hotel is situated on the edge of Grasmere Water and has a contemporary feel and is very clean and very comfortable. Molton & Brown toiletries are supplied in each room. The food is of a high standard and a reasonable cost with a good selection of wines on offer too. We also made use of the facilities in the Spa, I would advise you to book ahead for individual treatment as they book up quickly. However the thermal pool and the Sauna & Steam room are great and well worth a visit if you are not able to book anything or just fancy treating yourself. Would definately stay here again!!
Top Tip: Make sure you visit Sarah Nelson's Gingerbread shop in Grasmere (Short walk into the village) as their Gingerbread is fantastic!

Room Tip: The 'No view' rooms are good for a cheap option, but we upgraded to the Valley view rooms wh...

First the good things; The spa is brilliant!

Breakfast was a joke, it was like queuing up waiting for school dinners, a good 5 mins wait the staff couldn’t keep up the guests wanted.
The coffee was awful coffee too, it was so weak – sent it back so did a few more guests after I had complained! The restaurant and hotel on the whole is too sterile.
There view from our room was great until you looked down and saw the outbuildings been worked on and the fans for the air conditioning, the noise that came from the fans kept me away most of time, humming constantly very loud and annoying, besides the room doors in the hotel slam themselves shut very loudly too, so don’t expect to a lie in!
The bathroom light was also annoying, it was suppose to switch on automatically when you touched the taps, would have be great if it worked correctly.

Noisy sterile hotel that is very over priced.

We stayed at this hotel for one night a couple of weeks ago. It has undergone renovation in the last few years and reopened last year. Our room was stylish, fuss free and very clean and all the fittings were new. The bathroom was spacious, sparklingly clean and had a separate shower and bath. The hotel reception is quite a large area and does look a bit clinical but the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was fantastic. We ate an evening meal there which was fine. We will definitely be going back.

just come back from staying one night at the daffodil hotel in grasmere.
we stayed in the superior room with lakeside view on a dinner bed and breakfast basis.
well what a wonderful night, the spa was divine, the food was outstanding and the service was fabulous. The room and view was out of this world, the room had everything in that you needed and more and it was spotless.
The food, both dinner and breakfast was cooked to perfection and the service was perfect.
All staff were friendly and we will certainly be going again.

Room Tip: choose a lakeside view as it is breathtaking and lovely to wake up to.

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.
