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.
The Riverside is a comfortable friendly and relaxing hotel. Not so big which is why we like it so much. The view of the river from every room is a delight. It is also close to the shopping without the biz of the high street. Ducks and swans sailing past, lovely. The staff were helpful and very pleasant. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Sitting on the bar terrace over the river in the sunshine was just the best. At breakfast if you leave hungry it's your own fault. Service was quick for tea and toast everything else was buffet style. On this occasion we didnt use the gym or pool. The parking is right beside the hotel under cover which for us was a bonus as we were on a motorcycle. The hotel is so good we booked again for next year.
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.

Stayed for 2 nights in a Club class room including breakfast. The check in was quick and efficient, the room was a large front facing double with a balcony. It was very clean, tea/coffee, bathrobes and slippers provided, fridge, safe, and plenty of hanging and storage space. The breakfast was served to the table, lots of choice and was hot really well presented and very tasty. We didn't have any other meals in the hotel, and didn't have time to try out the pool and gym, but we will be back.! Only 1 small negative comment, the car parking was a tad confusing, we didn't know all of the bays belonged to the hotel this could be made clearer with signage.
"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.
