The Daffodil Hotel & Spa
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Grasmere
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We loved this place. Huge bed, bathroom very spacious with a large bath and power shower big enough for two, all with Molten brown toiletries . The friendly staff were wonderful and efficient. We enjoyed breakfast very much and the evening meal was superb. We never tried the spa maybe next time. Best sleep ever in a hotel. The pictures all around the hotel are very funny and well done.

Room Tip: Try for a lake view room

Me and my daughter went to the daffodil hotel on the detox by day devil by night package. Stayed in a mountain view room which was lovely. Really comfy beds very clean rooms and lovely french doors. The spa was lovely as was the facial all clean and very professional and relaxed atmosphere. Three course meal and breakfast was excellent. Must mention the amazing restaurant staff service was excellent and all very friendly. We had the most wonderful time. Thank you daffodil hotel.

The good bits firstly. The location is excellent. On the lake and a few minutes walk into Grasmere village. The staff throughout were excellent particularly on reception. Rooms were clean if a little functional. Big bathroom though which was good. Don't bother with anything other than a lake view as otherwise you could just be staying in another hotel anywhere. The spa was good. Well equipped although no natural light. It had a little "underground" feel. Worth treating yourself nonetheless.

The less good was breakfast. Service was a little chaotic. Understaffed and a little disorganised. Food not bad though.

A family owned and run hotel it seems. To be supported. With some improvements can be excellent.

Room Tip: Lake view a must. Room 325 is partial view but in truth you pretty much get the view

Just returned from a one night stay for our wedding anniversary which all in all was fantastic we booked direct through the hotel website and got a great half price sunday rate. we had a lovely suite with a gorgeous lake view the bed is the most comfortable we have stayed in and the molton brown smellys were a nice touch room was very spacious and quiet. We used the spa which is on the small size but was not busy at all so was stil very relaxing. We dined in the restaurant on the evening and the food was 1st class overall the place is a gem the staff are outstanding and very helpful from the reception staff and restaurant to the cleaners you see I the corridors ! We will definitely be back soon.

Stayed here recently after visiting Grasmere earlier in the afternoon. We decided to try and stay overnight despite having no toiletries or spare clothing and so made a last minute booking through booking.com. We got a great rate for the room and on check-in the front desk upgraded us to a lake view room. The front desk was also extremely helpful during check-in after explaining our last minute decision.
The room itself was of a very high specification, very comfortable king size bed and a modern shower and toilet. the room had a Juliet balcony with a view to the lake which in the morning had mist rising from it....a truly beautiful sight. Breakfast buffet was wholesome and hearty, with an excellent choice of foods.
All in all a really great place to stay and is highly recommended

Room Tip: If you can spend the extra money and book a room with a lake view, the view is amazing in the mornin...

My husband and I stayed at The Daffodil for one night as an early anniversary present. This ws our first time to The Lakes and what a beautiful part of the country to visit, will be back very soon.

The Daffodil has a perfect location over Lake Grasmere off the main road from Windermere. The hotel although dull on the exterior is very fresh and modern throughout. We checked in slightly early but were our room by the friendly receptionist. We had upgraded to a Junior Suite which was a fab light spotlessly clean room with a great view over the lake. Loved the massive comfortable bed and the Molton Brown smellies.... apart from this not really sure the upgrade was worth paying for. But even so, we had a really comfortable stay in the room.

We had an afternoon drink in the bar which was very relaxing and loved all the different artwork around the bar area. We didn't stay in the hotel for an evening meal but breakfast was delicious! Lots of choice and really good quality food.

On the Sunday after a few hours discovering the surrounding Lakes we used the spa and had pre booked a treatment. The spa was very small but it wasn't too busy during the times we used it. Our mud rasual treatment was just ok..... glad I booked this on an offer and didn't pay full price. We were shown the room by a therapist and given a quick overview of our self application treatment. We were left with a sparse amount of exfoliator and mud and a broken shower! But the steam chamber was very relaxing so was a nice end to a busy weekend. But I do feel the spa needs a little improvement and the pool was really cold!!

Overall enjoyable stay but it wasn't quite the luxury I expected for the price we paid. If we did visit again I wouldn't opt for an upgraded room. Just another small gripe that the bar area was very under-staffed on the Sunday and the waiter/barman had difficulties managing. We waited at least 30 minutes for a cappuccino! Might have just been a bad day.

I stayed here one night which was enough!!

The hotel feels cheap compared to say Rudding Park in Harrogate which is the same price and is a fantastic hotel.

This hotel definitely wants to be something it isn't.

To be honest it doesn't ever really warrant writing a review. Suffice to say if you want a relaxing nights sleep and to be left in peace without a team of workers interrupting your peace then do t stay here. Oh and valley view also means road view!!

All in all pretty rubbish.
