The Daffodil Hotel & Spa
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Grasmere
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Our wedding day was the 7th of Dec 2013. The Hotel looked fantastic with all the Christmas decorations and its set in a beautiful part of the Lake District. We had our photo's taken by the lake outside and on the patio area behind the hotel.

We got married in the Prince of Wales room and then moved to the Waterside room for the reception meal and had a great night. The Wedding went really smooth and we wouldn't change a thing. We haven't heard anything bad about the hotel from any of the guests that attended and everyone commented on the food being lovely.

We stayed in a suit on the wedding night and the night after, the suit was very spacious and clean with a great view of the lake.

Breakfast on both mornings was good plenty to choose from and couldn't ask for more.

The hotel staff were great and really friendly and made us feel special throughout our stay. We look forward to visiting the hotel in the future and have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.

The Daffodil is with-in 20 miles of my home. Little travel and in beautiful location. Grasmere is my favourite lake and village. Chose this hotel as I had not stayed since all the major alterations to this property. Went for the spa, needed a de-stress. The lake view room was very good, spotless, contemporary, attention to detail, all you need, loved the carving on the wardrobe doors and light next to bed. Loved waking up to that view; watched the heron arrive to fish.Saw ducks, geese, many birds and sheep! The hydrotherapy pool was very different, lots of unusual features but not for serious swimming. Had a neck and back massage; felt so much more relaxed. Overall a lovely, modern hotel with very friendly and efficent staff. I have booked to go back in January.

Room Tip: Over looking the Lake.

Have just returned from a two night stay. Lovely light airy hotel, tasteful modern decoration and very clean. All staff were very helpful and friendly, special thanks to the restaurant staff.
Breakfast was good as were the evening meals.
The bedroom was large and well appointed. The bed wide and very comfortable. Only down side was the road noise which started early in the morning I would advise avoiding the valley view rooms.
We took advantage of a 2 night dbb break for the price of one which made the stay a reasonable price. There are some good deals on Internet sites, I am not sure I would pay full price.
I did not use the Spa as the prices were a bit steep.

Room Tip: Avoid valley view rooms - early morning road noise

Stayed earlier in the year and loved the Daffodil. Came back again in November on a 'Suite Sale', but took along some friends this time. We loved the improvements to the reception, bar and sitting room and the staff seemed even better this time in particular in the restaurtant.

Our friends also loved the Daffodil and we are hoping to come back at Easter!

Tried the Mud Rasul this time which was ace and very relaxing!

I really feel we have found a special place in the Lakes.

An excellent hotel of the outskirts of Grasmere. It may be available at reduced prices via the "deals" websites and the becomes super excellent for the value.
Each room is individually air conditioned but there are no instructions, resulting in less than perfect control.
Very modern decor and fittings which will not suit everybody but this should not hinder your enjoyment.
Food is of the fine dining standard but very limited for coeliacs.

Me and my partner stayed here for our 6 year anniversary having wanted a spa getaway we found the daffodil hotel through a brochure. It was relatively easy to find via a sat nav. On arrival we were greeted immediately and checked in. When we entered the room i found it was very modern, with a large bed and modern, clean and large bathroom with both seperate bath and power shower. We were told a menu would be in the room but we couldn't find it anywhere, having checked in quite late on, it was already dark and we were tired so we didnt want to venture out. We booked in at the hotel's restaurant for our evening meal. The dining experience was a bit too formal, having seated us in a small cul-de-sac sort of area, we were very close nit with other tables, and i felt i could not have a conversation without whispering incase I disturbed the peace. I would have preferred to been able to choose where i wanted to sit but never the less, we ordered our food. I had the rump steak (rare) and my partner had a different dish (sorry can't remember which one!) my partner enjoyed it and so did i, luckily i was not put off by a short dark coloured hair which maybe came as garnish on the rim of the plate, not the food (phew!). The steak was cooked perfectly and was easy to cut into and had a juicy texture to it. I am very fussy about good quality steak and i do believe this was good quality. Much to our suprise we got a complimentary dessert with Happy Anniversary wrote on the plate in chocolate sauce. Lovely gesture! We relaxed in a cornered off bar area to end the night.

The only bad thing i can say about the room was that the air con kept going hot and cold all throughout the night, so i didnt sleep very well because one minute i was cold, the next i was too hot!

The next day we had our breakfast in the restaurant, sat in the same place though :( but there was a large selection of hot food buffet, eggs, bacon, sausage etc and cold, continental, cereal, muffins, fruit etc. It was also very tasty and just what the doctor ordered.

We used the spa after checking out of the room and it was quiet, with only us and two other people in there, it was smaller than expected but still a nice experience. Also used the sauna but unfortunately the steam room was closed off, a little disappointing.

The location is good, being not far from grasmere village and not far from windermere and ambleside in a car journey.

The overall stay was great mainly because we got a good deal, the staff met all expectations and the food was good, though a little pricey, but we expected that anyway. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family for a quiet getaway.
