Lovely hotel in beautiful, peaceful surroundings

Posted 11-Mar-2017
Pros: See above.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: Beautiful location and a lovely walk right round the lake. A trip to the Motor Museum and also to Hayes Garden Centre was great for us.
We spent three nights here to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. Hotel was lovely and they even arranged for three days of sunshine for us. The staff were very good, particularly the restaurant staff. The food was really nice and they do a great line in soups!! Great selection for breakfast to set you up for the day. The room was spacious with a huge bed so very comfortable. I must say it was great to have towels big enough to wrap around the body as some hotels have towels that are very small. It was also lovely to have hair conditioner as well as shampoo as many hotels no longer give conditioner. We didn't use the spa facilities and can therefore make no comment on them.

Lovely hotel for a birthday-treat spa break

Posted 21-Feb-2017
The hotel is excellently situated a walkable distance from the lovely Lakes village of Grasmere. It is right on the lakeside with beautiful views across the lake and the valleys. The hotel itself is clean and fresh and the staff are warm and welcoming. The breakfast was fantastic. The spa faciitilies were great and can be used for free, without the treatments we enjoyed, by all hotel guests. Overall I would definitely recommend The Daffodil Hotel and Spa.

Fantastic location

Posted 09-Feb-2017
Great location directly on the lake, unbeatable lake views, clean and comfy rooms. We had a massage in the spa - best we've had for a while, worth every penny. The restaurant is good, limited options but good quality.

Close to being a great hotel.

Posted 29-Jan-2017
Pros: Comfortable, clean, spacious, well appointed room. We had one of the rooms that is next to the road and we could not hear it. Excellent spa.
Cons: Whilst the food in the restaurant is of good quality, the service does not meet these standards.
This hotel is close to being a great hotel. The rooms are excellent, comfortable and well appointed. The spa is great, particularly after a hard days walking. However there are a number of things that let it down. The staff service does not meet the standard of the rest of the hotel. Examples include housekeeping knocking before 9am to make up the room; items being charged to the room that we had already paid for and poor service in the restaurant. The service is inattentive yet feels rushed.

Disappointed and will go elsewhere next time.

Posted 29-Dec-2016 on Hotels
We stayed in a junior suite and overall we were slightly disappointed so we will return to other hotels, or try others, in the area. Some people will think the evening menu is great but for myself I did not not like it, the best things on the menu seemed to be what I would order in a gastro pub not a fine restaurant which was disappointing. The room was really nice with great views although for some reason they designed the wardrobe so you hung your clothes from front to back so had to move everything to get at your clothes at the back.

Winter break

Posted 13-Dec-2016
Overall, I was impressed by our stay. The newly refurbished hotel is tastefull and is in a lovely part of the lakes. Impressed by the staff on reception and in the restaurant, who were polite, friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The end of our stay was soured by our spa visit, whilst the majority of the staff there and the facilities were great, the lady on reception (possibly management?!) was talking very loudly on the phone when we arrived, and didn't acknowledge our arrival in the slightest. I'd of been fine with this, however, we had our treatment then went to use the facilities for a couple of hours. Upon getting changed at the end of the day, my wife had received an abrupt voicemail from the lady on reception asking why we had not paid for our treatment and urging us to call back to pay over the phone - whilst we were still using the facilities? She also said we had given an incorrect room number - this wasn't the case, and if she'd bothered to acknowledge our arrival she'd of heard us tell another lady there that we had checked out that morning but had booked in for a treatment that afternoon. If she'd bothered to check the signing in book she'd of seen that we were still there as we hadn't signed out. The final straw was the lack of acknowledgment as we left despite leaving this message on my wife's phone, she was busy ordering games from a toyshop on the phone, I can only assume Christmas shopping. Disgustingly rude that unfortunately tarnished a lovely stay.

A gem in the Lake District

Posted 13-Sep-2016 on Hotels
We visited the English Lake District, and this wonderful hotel, in the small town of Grassmere, is an ideal place to unwind and visit this little gem in the English countryside.

Beautiful setting, lovely modern décor.

Posted 10-Nov-2015
Pros: Beautiful lakeside setting
We had a non-view room and it was very noisy at the rear of the hotel. All the air conditioning units were below our room so it did deter from the tranquillity of the experience.

Delightful hotel

Lovely nights stay in this hotel. We booked a basic no view room on bed and breakfast basis. Bed was huge and incredibly comfortable, bathroom lovely. Spa area is great. Will be returning!
