Macdonald Swan Hotel Grasmere
4.8 out of 5

The hotel is ideally situated on the main road from windermere to Keswick and is only a short walk in to Grasmere village. We had mixed feelings regarding our room. The bedroom area was clean, tidy and functional but the bathroom was tired, dated and in need of some work. As the radiator couldn't be turned off the room was too hot. This didn't however detract too much from the stay. The best part, for us, was the restaraunt. The food was excellent, both dinner and breakfast, and the staff were friendly and professional. We would stay there again.

We very much enjoyed our stay. It was both relaxing and comfortable. The staff were friendly and did not rush you in any way. We will certainly book into this hotel again.

A tortuous route to some rooms! I had the feeling of over-worked, multi-tasking staff.

Excellent location within a 5 mins walk of Grasmere. The room was a good size although the bathroom was rather small. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Restaurant food prices were rather high and we found it better to eat in Grasmere itself. We'd stay here again.

The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. It's in a great location on the outskirts of Grasmere village. The only very minor negative was the skimpy breakfast portions, especially the kipper. Don't bother!
