Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Room was lovely - view of the lake with small balcony. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Great selection of breakfast options and despite Covid-19 there was a buffet breakfast so you could have as much or as little as you liked. Room was serviced everyday and staff more than happy to provide extra toiletries on request for us. Only complaints would be that it took a long time for anyone to come over to take our drinks orders when we were sat outside, despite telling the bar staff we were going to sit at a table outside. We also felt that the evening dinner menu was very limited but that wasn't a major problem as there are plenty of places to eat elsewhere in Grasmere.
