Built in 1650 as a coaching inn, and mentioned in a Wordsworth poem "The Wag-goner", The Swan Hotel, Grasmere is one of the oldest in the Lake District. Nestled in the Cumbrian countryside, with views across the Fells, cozy and inviting hotel is ideal for walkers and cyclists. With open sunny vistas in summer and blazing log fires in winter, it's the ideal base for exploring the wonders of the Lake District National Park. Afterwards, relax with a delicious meal in restaurant or enjoy the convivial atmosphere of the Walkers' Bar before retiring to a traditionally - furnished, comfortable room.
**Please note there is no lift at the property. Please contact the hotel for more information on accessibility** We are a non-smoking hotel.

This was our third time here and whilst is has never been a perfect place you can get good prices if you pick carefully. Paid average £71 per night for three nights for an executive room - this seemed to give us a slightly better view, one bottle
of water and dressing gowns in the room compared to a standard double. Not sure if the bed is bigger? They always seem understaffed and breakfast can be a slow process. Although on a main A road it is never busy and really quiet at night.
Open fires and comfy chairs add to a country feel. There is a short walk into the village which is a bit of a dark route on an evening but this did not detract from the stay. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was very good. The only down side
was the restaurant-high price of the wine in the bar, £9 for a glass of Sauvignon Blanc came as a bit of a shock and meant that we stopped at one!
We had a lovely stay at the swan. We got a really cheap and good room, but the expenses came whenever we bought anything. The room service menu had not been updated so we got to see how much the prices had been cranked up recently. Most places in
the lakes seem to have got a lot more expensive and so it was not the cheap little holiday we were hoping for!
The Swan is a lovely warm comfortable hotel we were there when the weather was cold wet and windy but it did not spoil our stay the room was large enough warm clean and with a lovely views of the fells. The bar areas and lounge had roaring fires
on which added to the ambience of the hotel. Staff welcoming and friendly would recommend to going to the Lakes.
