Dale Lodge Hotel is a "classy hotel with a brilliant pub", says Lancashire Life. This Georgian country-house hotel is situated in three acres of mature gardens in the village of Grasmere in the Lake District. Built in the 1820s, the property maintains many of its original features and is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle.

The village of Grasmere was home to William Wordsworth and the property is less than a 10-minute walk from the Wordsworth Trust, a living memorial set up to celebrate the poet's work. The famous Grasmere Gingerbread shop in set in Dove Cottage, the poet's former home, and is less than a 2-minute walk from the hotel.

You won't go hungry -- the hotel received a VisitEngland Gold Breakfast Award and you can choose between a candlelit dinner in the formal, yet cosy Lodge Restaurant or relax in the more laid-back Tweedies Bar. The Lodge Restaurant is in the main hotel and serves traditional dishes including fish and chips or more contemporary dishes such as pork done four ways with dauphinoise potatoes and braised red cabbage.

If you prefer a more relaxed pub environment then Tweedies Bar will be right up your street. It has an award from the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and has won praise from The Daily Telegraph for being "iconic", and serving "outstanding food". If you've had a long day rambling on the fells, prop up the bar with a pint of guest ale and tuck into a hearty meal of steak and kidney pudding.

Rooms are individually designed with a traditional décor and crisp white linens. Facilities include free WiFi and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Upgrade to a larger Premier or Luxury Mews Room if travelling with children.

If we would have not had a problem with the plumbing which ruined our break it would have been an excellent 2 nights instead the whole break was spoilt. We were not looking for freebies just a kind words and anot apology would have helped.

On the second night there was a problem with the plumbing the pipes in the room all night were Like a running taps Customer service on the morning when we eventually found a staff member was un professional and uncaring we had no sleep all evening the emergency telephone number was incorrect and was not connectable. The lack of sleep ruined our evening and last day. The hotel said it was not there problem and travel Zoo were responsible !!!

The location of the hotel was in a lovely spot. The hotel and it's facilities were great, loved Tweedies Bar and the food here was delicious.

The two night break my partner and I booked was advertised as an offer and was for a Premier Room. The room was very small as was the ensuite. It was a squeeze to walk around the bed and the ensuite had a sliding door and was tiny. I fail to see this was a premier room and feel this room could have been booked at the same price as the 'Offer Price' that we paid, therefore this was not on an offer. We requested a room with a bath and were told they had all been taken with bookings although the hotel did not seem full? Therefore we both feel we paid for a premier room and only got a standard room.
