    “Very small room. Expensive food. Nice staff.”

    Hotel had what you needed but the room was very small . the TV was on an adjustable wall bracket that was fitted right in the corner so it would not adjust. There were 2 chairs to sit on. One was under the TV so you had to move it to see the TV. The other one was at the other side of the room so you only got a side view of the TV.
    The bathroom fan was quite noisy and my wife was convinced that she could smell the cooking from the kitchen while the fan was running. The room was above the kitchen so even with the radiators turned off it was still far too hot. The kettle was cheap and nasty and my wife burned her hand when making a hot drink. You have to let it boil then leave it for about a minute so the steam has stopped coming out near the handle so that you can pick it up to pour.
    The restaurant was very expensive and had very little that I fancied to eat so we ate next door in their bistro . Its attached to the hotel but you have to go outside to get to it so you get wet when its raining.
    The portions were not very generous and prices were fairly high. eg Rib eye steak cost £16-95 and for that you got a small piece of steak ,a tomato, a mushroom and 6 chips thats all.
    I have never ever only had 6 chips on my plate. Maybe there is potato rationing in Grasmere [I have been to some places that serve you so much that I have left more than 6 chips as I have been too full.]
    I suppose it was to leave you hungry so that you bought a desert. The bistro has a nice log fire in one side so that side is very warm, but in the other side it was far too cold and did not appear to be heated. It was November so heating would have been nice.
    We were speaking to a member of staff and mentioned our very warm room and he said "Oh you must be in 19 or 21". We were in 21 and the problem with the room being too warm was well known to the staff. I did wonder why there was a small electric fan stored in the wardrobe, it must be to cool you down. We just left the window open. I would not want to be in this room when it is warm outside.
    The breakfast was very good and all the staff were very polite. Hotel had an indoor pool which we used once as the changing room floor was tiled with smooth ceramic tiles and was very slippery when you had wet feet.
    Hotel is situated in the centre of Grasmere and has ample parking .
    For £129 per night B&B it did not tick the value for money box. Being above the kitchen we got a good view of the delivery vehicles and not much else.
    Obviously this was our 1st visit at this hotel. We normally stay in Keswick but our favorite hotel was fully booked. Luckily the weather was good on Saturday and Sunday so we still enjoyed our weekend.
