Exceptional 10.0
Thoroughly Excellent Experience
I stayed at the Traveller's Rest with my mum on Saturday 21st of December 2019. The staff were all friendly and extremely helpful. The entrance was very warm and inviting at this time of year, and the Christmas decorations throughout were beautiful. Would recommend the Traveller's Rest Inn to any of my family and friends to visit and stay at.

Lovely old inn. Good food, though disappointed that there were no lipped for breakfast as advertised. Music in main area needs a rethink. Nice staff. Thank you

Peter, gb2 night trip
Good 6.0
I wouldn't stay again, nice for a drink only.
Check in was slow upon arrival however the room was ready by 2pm rather than 3pm. The room booked was the only superior double so i expected a lovely room however what i found was a dirty well worn out room. There was rubbish in and around the bin in the bedroom, i found a plum under my bedside cabinet and the cups were filthy with coffee stains left in which looked as though they had never been cleaned. The shower had tepid running water and if the next room turned on a tap the water ran cold. There was no WIFI at all in the room and the bedding was torn with an extremely tatty headboard. all in all extremely disappointed and would not return. I would only recommend this place if you wanted somewhere to stop off for a drink whilst on a walk and not for the accommodation.

Fair 4.0
First night we stayed bedroom didn't get made up, needs a new mattress my husband kept rolling out and I slept in a dip, breakfast was nearly cold and over cooked, on the 4 night stay we had to ask for butter , jam and only once was we offered sauce with our breakfast, breakfast stated two eggs and I only got the one so we would not be going back to this inn again

Disgruntled customer.
We didn't seem to get a very friendly welcome but on leaving the young waiter was excellent. We where told when we checked in that we can pay at end of stay but upon departure I paid and only for the diligence of the young waiter after about 10 mins was told that I had already paid when making the booking. Because of room being cramped we left a day early, but still paid for two nights.

Good 6.0
Accommodation OK, staff seem a little busy and slightly under-resourced. Food good, again, service only OK. Room was nice, but being right on the main road the traffic gets noisy early in the morning.

Great B & B for Grasmere and the local hills
A comfortable room, good local beers, tasty breakfast, great location for Grasmere and the local hills and very friendly, obliging staff.
Paul, gb3 night trip
Good 6.0
Friendly staff and nice food in a lovely location. Not happy about having to go to reception to ask for toilet roll on arrival as none in the room, no shower gel/soap or sugar either so a little more attention to detail required!
