Lounge, breakfast,location,room facilities.
Lack of natural light in room. Dogs seen in residents lounge.
Products in room, the room was very comfortable light and airy, staff that was on wednesdayand thursday was lovely nothing too much trouble was made to feel really welcome. Hotel was in good location, food at breakfast was piping hot and excellent value. Plenty of choice.
Breakfast on friday was very dissapointing. Staff got our breakfast wrong twice, had to wait for our table to be cleared for quite a long time. We understand that the hotel was alot busier on friday but that shouldn't of made a difference. As it was a special break for my husbands 60th birthday i felt very upset that everything didn't go to plan.
The standard of the lobby area is far better than the quality of the bedroom!
Room 14 is over-rated. It should be classified as a Standard room, not a 'Classic' room. It's very small and the white paintwork is badly chipped. My wife and I were offered a dinner table, in their Tweedys bar restaurant, that was only big enough for 1 person to sit at comfortably (It made me laugh, but the waiter could not see why it amused me!). But what made me laugh even more was that there were no eggs available for breakfast!. What a 'yoke'! :-) And a first for my wife and I in our 40+ years of seasoned travelling. We have stayed at this hotel before, but will not be returning again.
Great location in the centre of the village.
Wi-Fi was hardly ever working throughout our 2 night stay. Waitress at breakfast was miserable, didn't even say good morning. We asked for a thinner duvet or a sheet as the bedroom was very hot but we never received it. Overall we were rather disappointed.
Good hotel with good rooms, really like it here.
Breakfast took nearly half an hour to come and was cold - sad really because the kitchen here is amazing but they were out performed by the Llama Karma cafe
enjoyable stay, hotel in the heart of grasmere staff attentive and excellent bar/restaurant on site, a great base for walking biking painting photography or motoring, excellent base if you want to follow the wordsworth trail
bedroom only adequate (shower room small) also no lift
Location and the fact it is a family run business.
There was no view out of the window just a roof top. If we were staying longer than one night we would have asked to be moved, if possible, to a room with a much better outlook.
Need a refurb however most disappointing factor was a spider web on the lamp shade and a massive spider in our room. Not something I would prefer with my little one in the same room.
We loved the location and the staff were extremely welcoming and attentive. We dined in Tweedies bar which was excellent but then again attention to detail lacked. Salt and pepper pots were empty and staff were brilliant but very busy for us to ask for other ones. The hotel itself was beautiful and well looked after.
We were both very disappointed with the room- we got a discounted price from booking.com but still for what we paid it didn't match up! The room was small, cramped and was very uninviting. I think it was room 16. The shower was poor and the blinds were extremely wonky! (How the housekeepers left them like that I don't know!!) Little things like that can easily be put right and make customers happier!!
Grounds and location in Grasmere were good Staff were friendly Food was good
Our Mews lodging was a tad cramped upstairs
The hotel was comfortable, friendly, and ideally situated in the heart of the Lake DIstrict. We were astounded by the excellent restaurant - the range and quality of the meals was truly excellent.
While we were there, when the WiFi was functional, it was a strong signal and rapid. However, it was down for hours at a time, which was frustrating. Also, the rooms we stayed in had no desks, even the "executive suite". But, if on holiday, this will not be a major concern for most people.
mews 3 bed the creakiest ever and tv remote does not work downstairs and hot tub had a very dirty scum on it so did not use
food was great
room cleanliness fair didn't tell us until we got there but charged for a child 20 pounds
Location in grasmere was 1st class
The price far too expensive for a 3star hotel
Room was ok and the lounge and dining area were fine. Generally a bit tired. Tweedies bar meals in the evening were very nice.
Breakfasts poor. Food luke warm in hotel and generally not well cooked. Tinned peaches for breakfast one morning starting to ferment. Poached eggs over cooked and scrambled eggs microwaved by taste of them.
There is a nice pub beside hotel. It's convinience to eat with children.
They changed sheets once for a few days. We didn't feel enought because we had a small child.
Room, food, Tweedies bar and restaurant, excellent staff friendly and helpful
The location excellent, hotel staff helpfull, breakfast very good, Tweedies bar and beers great
Towel rail loose in shower room, light fitting loose on bedside lamp,wardrobe door broken.
Very comfortable room Good bathroom Beautiful grounds Breakfast up to 10 , very civilised! Tweedie's bar , great range of beers and excellent food
Room was superbly decorated, facilities good. Everything you could wish for a romantic night away. Food was excellent both in tweedies bar and at breakfast.
Location, free parking, the hot-tub, Tweedies bar, good wi-fi...friendly staff...
Not a lot but maybe a bit on the pricey side in reality...
Great location, great staff and food. Very clean everywhere a nice bar.
I read some of the negative reviews on this site and was a bit nervous as I had booked the hotel as a treat for my boyfriend's birthday. I needn't have worried as the hotel was lovely. It is located right in the centre of Grasmere which is a beautiful village. I booked a premier room and we were in room 8 at the back of the hotel which overlooked Tweedies Bar and the garden. It was quiet when we were there as we stayed on a Monday night, but I can imagine it would be noisy on a Saturday when they have live music. When we arrived we were advised that the room had been recently painted and there was still a slight paint smell in the room, but it didn't put us off. The staff were very friendly and efficient and our room was spotless. We chose to eat in the restaurant on the night and the food was beautiful. All in all a lovely country house hotel in a lovely location. Will definitely be back.
The drinks in Tweedies Bar were quite expensive and it would be nice if hotel guests could have a discount
The staff were brilliant, the food in Tweedies Bar was very good, I was surprised it was a CAMRA pub so it had some excellent ales. Breakfast was very very good, high quality local produce. The lounge has a piano which my girlfriend loved as she's been playing since she was 7 years old. Wifi coverage was good around the hotel with the exception of our room, which they will fix, see negative comments for this
The free Wifi refused to work in our room, but the minute we left the room for other parts of the hotel it worked fine. The hotel are addressing this and they kindly discounted our bill as a result.
Hotel,staff and food were great also the Village and surroundings.
Non that comes to mind.
