It would be easy to pick faults with the hotel but we had a large comfortable room with good facilities, great internet connection and excellent breakfast. The central location was ideal for us to walk everywhere.
Just had three wonderful days in the Lakes, staying at the Dale Lodge Hotel again. Fabulous hotel, wonderful food, excellent facilities and lovely comfy room with tea-making equipment (and a teapot), biscuits and mints. En-suite facilities lovely with Molton and Brown complementary toiletries. Staff helpful and welcoming. Ideal location for exploring Grasmere, Ambleside etc. Had a lovely meal in Tweedies bar as well (their bar/restaurant). Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The hotel is ideally located in the centre of Ambleside. We were in a 'lodge' behind the main building, which was accessed through a couple of doors. The room itself consisted of a large bedroom with doors to a balcony overlooking a stream /waterfall, which would have been lovely in summer (but was a bit damp to use in late October). The bathroom was clean and tidy, the shower had a good flow, but tended to splash on to the floor a bit due to a small partition. Wasn't an issue other than making the floor a bit slippy. Car park was busy, but always got a spot - you have to negotiate the rising bollards and use an exit code - drive up to the bollard when you arrive and it automatically retracts into the ground. You get the exit code from reception. Breakfast was the highlight of the stay - excellent staff who took very precise notes of what cooked food we wanted and delivered it quickly and without fuss. Good selection of fruit, yoghurt and other buffet based foods too. Would certainly stay here again.
We all really enjoyed our stay. Staff were superb. Food was beautiful & the children enjoyed the swimming pool although I don't think some of the other swimmers enjoyed children interrupting their length swimming! The room was a little small and storage was not quite enough for a family of 4 but honestly, I loved this hotel & we are definitely going back.

"Good Hotel, good location and very helpful staff"
We stayed a few days at the Wordsworth after much research. The reviews that I read were mixed but I have only positive things to say about the hotel. We did not use the spa facilities so are unable to comment on them other than the gym looked small from what I saw through an open door. My first impression was Reception where I thought the decor was a little dark but my wife thought was more traditional. There are several lounges and what appeared a comfortable bar, again somewhere we didn't use. Our room was superb, as we had been upgraded to a junior suite, with plenty of space, a comfortable sofa and a balcony with table and chairs. The bathroom was excellent, with a bath with jacuzzi, and it had obviously been recently renovated. The bed itself was large and comfortable. We didn't eat in the main restaurant but used the Bistro on both nights of our stay. The food was reasonable, if not brilliant, and the prices acceptable. Overall it was an enjoyable stay in a hotel that was well situated for a number of very pleasant walks out of Grasmere. We would be very happy to stay again at the Hotel.
