The Daffodil Hotel
Very Good8.0
Nice hotel just outside Grasmere centre
Very nice hotel. Very clean in a great location. Check in was easy, room was spacious and had everything that we required. Paying £60 on the reservation thinking you are getting a set dinner for that was a mistake what it actually give you is £60 to spend on food so if dinner is more then you pay the extra. Other than that really enjoyed my stay

Spa Break
The most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in! Plus outstanding spa facilities and excellent food all added up to a first rate break. One very minor downside was availability of staff which seemed a bit thin on the ground but were courteous, friendly and helpful when found.

Birthday stay.
Overall the trip was lovely, left a card and chocolates in our room on arrival as it was my partners birthday. Quality breakfast, friendly concierge. Disappointing that because of the horrendous weather we couldn’t enjoy the spa to its fullest as staff could get into work.The only thing that was annoying was we had at least 4 knocks on our door on the day of checkout at 8.30am, 9am, 9.20am and 9.45am. Felt rushed to get ready and be out of the room.
