Grasmere Hotel is within easy walking distance of the City centre and cathedral. We booked a superior room with great views of the river and cathedral behind.
The room was almost identical to any room you would find in a premier inn with the same lay out and of a very similar size but more expensive. The decor was tired and had been patched in places requiring a complete re decoration. This applied to the hotel in general.
The staff, while not unfriendly, gave the impression that they were not happy to be there always looking tired and unsmiling.
Breakfast was dis organised and not very well cooked or particularly fresh even though we were invariably first to arrive.
On one occasion the chef managed to produce two fried eggs that had crispy whites and partially cooked yolks. Not to impressive in a hotel that charges 22 pounds for a 6 oz fillet steak! Needless to say we choose to dine elsewhere in the evenings.
Our room overlooked the gardens at the rear of the hotel which sloped gently down to the river and i imagine it would be a pleasant garden to sit in in the summer.
