Rothay Garden Hotel, Ambleside
Great place to stay in Grasmere
Excellent quality of rooms, food and service. Positioned in a quiet part of Grasmere between a stream and the part it is an excellent base for hiking and relaxing indoors when the rain is pouring down.

We’ll keep coming back
Friendly helpful staff - nothing too much trouble. Beautiful room. Excellent dinner. Short walk into Grassmere, but just far enough out to miss the crowds. We will definitely return.

Perfect weekend in The Lakes
This an impressive hotel situated in the picturesque village of Grasmere, where we were able to do some lovely walks from the doorstep. The service was exceptional throughout our stay and we dined here twice - with the food being of a very high standard on each occasion. The complementary spa facilities are a very nice touch. We'd definitely stay here again.

Very Good8.0
Hotel and location are great, only problem was the spa was closed for a refurb. No info on hotels website to tell us this. Hotel did not offer any complimentary drink which would of been a good idea. I’m sure we would go back though when complete. Breakfast was great.
