After reading some of the reviews I must admit we did have some mixed feelings about our stay,
however after spending 2 nights I can gladly say we were very impressed and very happy and would recommend Heidi's Grasmere Lodge to anybody.
It did seem a little odd to be asked to take take off your shoes before you go upstairs (not as soon as you step foot in the place as some have suggested) but then when you see the rooms you understand why. We were in room 2 and it was spotless and of a high standard-in fact it's going to cost me a fortune stopping here as my wife has took pictures of the bathroom and tells me that's how we're having ours. Doh!!!! and on the point of taking off your shoes, it is something I do at home and in other peoples houses so why is it a problem?
Let me just clarify a few points I have read in other reviews:-
The staff were all brilliant and friendly.
The coffee machine in the room was replenished when used although to be fair we only used it twice and there was instant coffee as well.
The breakfast was lovely and it was no trouble whatsoever to ask for something different-I had a vegge breakfast on both days without a problem all you have to do is ask by writing it on the breakfast list left outside the dining room.
We had a separate knife for the butter and the toast was not burnt at all.
We were asked if we wanted more coffee or toast.
There is ample parking at the back of the guest house-although I can see it would be tight if people don't park with thought to other guests.
The owner came and had a chat with us over breakfast one morning and she was really nice.
If we are in Grasmere again the first place we would look for a room would be Heidi's Grasmere Lodge.
