We often stay at The Grand at St Annes but I got an email from the sister hotel at Grasmere so we thought we would give it a try. We had a wonderful stay. Great location, close enough to Ambleside to walk to and lots of lovely hill walks around about. They do a cheaper price during the week too.... More

This is my second stay at the Grand .... and the first since the redesign. The hotel is perfectly placed in the middle of Grasmere. The entire ground floor has been completely redesigned and it looks great! The leather couches are still so new that one tends to slide off them a bit 🙂 There is a dedicated boot room,... More

Just returned from a two night stay the hotel is still in its infancy as the grand, the lounge, bar and dining areas are tastefully decorated and comfortable.

Stopped for lunch in the restaurant after a wedding in Windermere. Service and food amazing, we sat outside, very impressed with landscaping, views and inside really cool and relaxing vibe.

We live in the Lake District and decided to have a look at this hotel due to social media coverage recently viewed. Although we only had drinks, have to say well impressed by the refurbishment which is completed to a very high quality! Tranquil surroundings, just so beautiful.

Stayed here for 1 night recently. Have to say the renovations, downstairs in particular, the sitting room and restaurant area is beautiful. Really beautifully decorated. The bedroom, was nice, however at 130 pounds a night I was a little disappointed in the bathroom which had clearly just been "spruced up" with a bit of fresh Lino and some Molton brown... More
