My wife and I stayed here with two other couples as part of our Coast To Coast walk.
We were met on arrival by Rob - one of the owners of this absolutely beautiful hotel. He was very welcoming and check-in for the six of us was very efficient.
The location is perfect. Right in the heart of the gorgeous village of Grasmere.
The grounds are lovely, which is where we had a drink after checking in and getting cleaned up.
Dinner was an experience. Clearly Anton (in the kitchen) and Rob (maitre d) take a great deal of pride in all aspects of their hotel and restaurant. The food was spectacular and the service was perfect. My only criticism would be that we thought Rob was a bit tough on a junior staff member who is clearly learning but still doing a great job. Such is their perfectionism.
After our evening meal, we retired to the lounge for coffee and tea, where Rob brought out a cake for one of our group who was celebrating their birthday.
Breakfast was probably the biggest and highest quality spread we had on the whole Coast to Coast walk.
The packed lunch was of a similar standard to the other meals.
Rob and Anton have renovated the entire hotel with care and pride. The lounge area and dining room were very nice. Our rooms were immaculate and the en-suites amazing. They were much larger than you would expect in a hotel of this age.
I have rated this as 5/5 but would have given it 6 if I could.
My wife and I hope to return one day to do Helvellyn and Striding Edge. It will give us a great excuse to come back and stay again (and for longer) and do some other walks in the area.

Today we were expecting a shorter and maybe easier day.
However, the temperature soared to 27 degrees (which doesn't seem much until you are walking for hours in the direct sun), there was no breeze, and clouds were few and far between.
And the distance may have been shorter, but the degree of difficulty clearly stepped up a notch.
... he felt dizzy and had to lie down, and he was sweating profusely and heart rate racing....we think it was low blood sugar as he had only munched on some nuts at our short lunch stop, just before the ascent...anyway, after 2 muesli bars and more water (he had been drinking tons, don't think it was dehydration) he felt ok enough to start again. But it was a scary short time, as there we were, perched on a hillside in the wilderness, nothing but a few sheep in sight, ...
... at Ennerdale Bridge, in a lovely corner room with views. Only problem was the wifi would not connect. Or the man didn't know how to help us...anyway, we have come to the rival pub for a drink in their bar, and are using their 3 bar wifi. There is no phone reception, so couldn't even have used my hotspot. So we are happy and proud that we still have the stamina, and have that post walk euphoria. And I have to ...
... stop - Preston - where we had a connection of 10 minutes to train no. 3 - the Transpennine express. Got there with about 4 minutes to leap down the steps and up the steps with our bags to this important train, and found that it was a dear little 3 carriage train, that meandered its way to Barrow-in-Furness, which is on a tip of land surrounded by water. By this stage we had chilled out, and are now on the 4th train heading for Carlisle, but get out at St. Bees after about ...
Tuesday 5th. - Wednesday 6th. August 2014 We couldn't have asked for a better start to our holiday. After a very good nights sleep we awoke to a beautiful Summers morning. After a healthy breakfast with an assortment of seasonal berry fruits, Eira packed a picnic to take with us to spend the day boating on Lake Windermere. We started off with sunshine, ...
