I have known this hotel since I was a boy and it remains a lovely location with friendly and efficient staff. We were unlucky to have a room at the back overlooking the delivery entrance which is noisy from very early, and curiously very hot (it might be over the spa's sauna and steam room). The WiFi is underpowered (doesn't upload pictures much of the time). Breakfast is good but the cooked side is not as good as it should be (nor should it charge very small supplements for odd items). The spa and pool are excellent, but don't plan on a massage when you get back from a day's hiking - they close at 5.30pm for treatments.
Location of the hotel in the centre of Grasmere could not be better with many excellent walks from the hotel. Facilities and staff very good and the Dove bistro was our choice for our evening meals. Swimming pool was welcome.

Irton Hall is a beautiful hotel a few miles outside of the closest town. It was a little tricky to find, but worth the effort. The check-in was effortless and the parking spaces very close to the reception area, so moving luggage was easy. The room was very well-appointed, although it was a little tricky to operate all the controls in the shower. Complimentary cold water was available in the room's refrigerator, as were a few biscuits and chilled glasses. At check-in, we were able to reserve a table for dinner. The dinner was delicious - a very good value with good service. The breakfast was also very well-prepared.
Booked last minute for weekend in August. Lovely location and views over lake Windermere. Our room was a little tired, especially the bathroom which was poor but I expect we got last room available. Restaurant and food was excellent, enjoyed our stay.

We had not signed up for dinner, but decided on site to have dinner. It was absolutely fantastic and the best we had in the Lake District, even in the UK. The lamb was perfect, as was the Haddock. really recommend to have a t least one meal there on your trip. The hotel was also wonderful, including the park that is part of the property.
Home to England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, the Lake District is a National Park of astonishing beauty and a huge draw for nature lovers and hikers. The multitude of lakes and tarns give the park a stunningly unique landscape, which visitors can take in during a slow ramble or whilst enjoying one of the area's many recreational facilities. Coniston Boating Centre offers boat and bike hire.
