Always enjoy a break in the lakes, this time decided on a two night end of the week break at The Swan in Grasmere! Hotel ideally positioned on the outskirts of Grasmere only a 10 minute stroll into the village centre. Booked a family room for 3 people 2 adults and a child of 6 years of age! The room (27) was fantastic with our sons bed in his own private area with own tv. We booked dinner bed and breakfast and on the whole the food was very good!
What the website fails to show or explain is how this works? Children get breakfast included but dinner has to be paid for! Adults get Â£25 each to spend at dinner but cannot get a child's meal as part of this?? You cannot get wine or drinks as part of the Â£25 either!! Drinks prices are embarrassingly expensive for a 3 star hotel with a simple bottle of Merlot costing Â£23!!! Looking on the web it costs Â£6.85?? McDonald hotels really need to address this area ! Overall enjoyed the stay Clean, comfy and good food!
