“Excellent all round!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

We stayed here for the weekend. The spa is small but very relaxing and wasn't very busy. The RASUL treatment was very relaxing. Rooms very comfortable- everything inside the hotel has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. Lovely individual prints on the walls that made us smile. Food excellent- lovely coffee lounge... bathrooms were superb, Staff well trained- friendly and polite! It poured with rain ... but the hotel was so comfortable that we really didn't mind! We will be back.

Room Tip: We were on a special deal so knew our rooms wouldn't have a view. If you want a room with a view...

It would be nitpicking to give this hotel less than full marks. The room was lovely with a wonderfully large and comfortable bed and a spacious and well appointed bathroom. We found all the staff to be friendly and efficient .
We enjoyed spending an hour in the spa on a wet afternoon and relaxed afterwards in the lounge.
We visit the Lakes regularly and liked the Daffodil's contemporary feel, but maybe if you were visiting for the first time you may want something with more local character.
We loved our stay.

Stayed here on the 'Detox by day, Devil by night' package, which turned out to be extremely good value! A £15 allowance each for lunch, access to the spa, 1 hour spa treatment, £30 allowance each to dinner, coffee and liqueurs, glass of champagne each, cocktail each, overnight stay AND breakfast the next morning. Amazing value in a lovely hotel. The spa treatments were lovely (facial and back massage), the staff are extremely friendly, the hotel is very clean and modern. Only a five minute stroll into Grasmere which is a lovely little village with cafes and shops. Would highly recommend, will be visiting in summer to hopefully experience some sun so that we can sit outside on the terrace overlooking the lake. Perfection!

stayed here with the wife recently. Hotel is really nice and great for Grasmere. Restaurant had a few things off the menu, but only minor criticism. Price is about right for a good quality 4 star hotel.

Stayed on Sunday 16th February until Monday 17th - as we booked 4 weeks in advance, we managed to pay £130 including breakfast and access to the hydrotherapy pool, sauna and steam room. A week before we visited, the price went up to £185 so do book in advance. Hotel was clean throughout, breakfast was delicious and the staff were helpful and polite. Hotel is only a short walk in to Grasmere village (5 minutes) and a short drive anywhere else. Drinks on the expensive side (£11 for a glass of wine and a pint of lager) but expected in hotels like this. The only real downside was that check in is only 3pm and check out 11am so really you're paying a lot of money and you're not in the hotel for even 24 hours. Recommend it for a quiet weekend away.

What can we say, but outstanding service from all the very friendly staff, Nothing was to much trouble, Booked by my wife for a surprise 50th Birthday and we both really enjoyed our stay at the Daffodil Hotel,It is very very clean and I mean spotless.Modern comfortable just what you would expect.
Now the food was one of the best full English breakfasts I have ever had. The evening meal was outstanding. We will definitely return for nights for sure.

Stayed as an early Valetine's getaway - loved every minute. All the staff were really helpful, friendly and nothing was ever too much to ask. The senior suite was very spacious, huge comfortable bed, massive bathroom and comfortable lounge chairs with a big television. Our evening meal in the restaurant was amazing. Service was fab, lots on the menu and the food was to die for! Breakfast was beautiful and we finished off our stay with a relaxing mud spa. An overall fab experience!!

Room Tip: Senior suite on top floor looking onto the lake.
