Birthday celebration
It was a really good setting but the room we had was a little tired with a lot of chipped paint work and bathroom needing updating. Breakfast was really good and ajoining bar was very popular to relax in after long walk.

Lovely nights stay.
A very nice hotel in Grasmere, close to everything in the village and lots of walks.
Linda, gb1 night romance trip

Relaxing break
Great location - we predominantly go to the Lakes to walk and Grasmere has lots of good routes right from the hotel door. The Mews suite we stayed in was nice, good for relaxing in after walking all day and the hot tub was a good addition. Breakfast was good (although to get enough of the short days in winter could be at 8am instead) and the food in Tweedies Bar (along with the drinks) was really good. The thing that would put me off staying again would be the poor quality mattress and bedding which, for the price of the suite could and should have been much better. Get that sorted out and we will be back.

We had a lovely stay, staff very attentive, breakfast excellent, however room needed a little freshing up as was looking a little tired and dated.
Deborah roberts, gb1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Lovely stay in Dale Lodge. Friendly staff, big bright room, fab breakfast and right in the centre of Grasmere with a short walk to the Lake. We were lucky enough to get a table without booking at Tweedies without realizing it was a popular haunt and you would usually need to book. Nice range of real ales if you like that sort of thing (bit lost on me and my partner) but good wine! Defo stay here again.
