      An excellent break with good facilities and polite and attentive staff.

      Laid back atmosphere but without losing the luxury

      We just got back from our long weekend Easter vacation 3-night stay at the Wordsworth Spa hotel. We originally booked a room for 2 nights then we decided to stay for one more night simply because my husband love the hotel and restaurant, also the lovely surrounding. We’d say food was the catch – extraordinary cuisine with mouth-watering desserts! We’d recommend this beautiful hotel but keep in mind it’s not the cheapest hotel but the best location in Grasmere

      On our arrival, we were offered a selection of newspapers and then we found on our bill £3.50 for 3 newspapers! We think newspapers should be complimentary and not charged, as this is the normal practice in any 4* or 5* hotels worldwide. Also the SPA facilities were not available due to a personal bereavement, it would have been better if there was a replacement or other arrangement because we purposely booked the hotel to enjoy a SPA treatment! Not very convinced!

      Lovely building in a fantastic location. General cleanliness excellent. Staff very friendly.

      Room very stuffy with no view. Poor service at breakfast. Complaint re breakfast not dealt with to our satisfaction. Not worth cost of room Not 4 star standard

    • Older travelers

      The location is excellent, and staff most willing.The public rooms are lovely and the spa looks really inviting.

      The attention to detail was lacking. Hotel television did not recieve BBC1 and initially we were checked into a room that had a problem with an unpleasant odour. The restuarant food was very pretty however I felt it was slightly overpriced and underdelivered on quality.( The thrice fried chips were clearly steamed)

    • Older travelers

      Very welcoming and friendly staff. Excellent breakfasts. Very comfortable room. Parking on site a major benefit.

      Can't think of anything. Small amount of noise - our room was over the kitchen. Early morning deliveries and disposal of bottles!

      A beautiful hotel set In the centre of Grasmere. Food and accommodation is excellent. Would highly recommend this hotel for comfort and style. Also efficient and friendly. Have been twice now.

    • Couple

      Location unbeatable Bathroom high end Staff friendly

      Pillows too soft. Bedroom decoration needs updating (but don't go too modern. Still need to maintain character) Kettle had damaged flex and overboiled - tea/coffee making facilities need updating. Lift - has character but does need updating. Price for lower end rooms a little steep given the view. May struggle to compete with The Daffodil

      Appears to be well run with the staff trying their best to make your stay comfortable. The location was superb with easy access to the town and surrounds.

      Wonderful room with stunning view, friendly staff, fantastic fine dining restaurant, Fabulous stay !!!

    • Family with children
      7.4

      Location in the middle of Grasmere is excellent. Village view room was a good size.

      We went for a peaceful break but on the weekend we visited there was a very noisy group who spoiled dinner and breakfast for us and didn't encourage us to spend as much time in the hotel as we intended. To be fair to the hotel they must have realised that there was an issue and the following night the group were moved into a side room for breakfast and dinner - with the result of a more pleasant dining experience.

    • Single

      Nice, efficient and friendly staff. Rooms of a good standard, well equipped and very clean. Great location really enjoyed my brief stay there

      Breakfast was a bit slow...

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      going from a good hotel to beautiful surroundings

      the beds were not turned down as was the case in previous visits prior to retiring. The previous tariff used to include dinner/bed/and breakfast now it is "pick and mix"

    • Family with children
      5.4

      Good central location.

      Room not as clean as it could be. Courtyard room small with view of fire escape. Not worth £100 per night. Bed not comfortable.
