The Best of Grasmere
Centrally located in beautiful Grasmere. Outstanding restaurant in an 5-star hotel ... the best in town.

Lovely location. Hotel is nice but needs to be updated. Some of the furniture and decor is very old and dated. Radiator in bathroom and dressing table in our room were dirty. Bed was queen size not double. Staff were nice but the lady nearly checked us into the wrong room.

So so
Hotel is in a great location but for the price could do with updating and a little bit more love. Room was clean but there was no hot water, the lamp shades were wonky and falling down and the fan was broken (which would be fine is the room wasn’t the temperature of the sun). Like I said, no major complaints but for the price you do expect a little more.
