Great Autumn Weekend In Grasmere

Stay Date: 25/09/09, a customer from West Yorkshire who stayed at 3* Macdonald Swan Hotel (2 Night Offer & 1st Night Dinner) in Grasmere wrote this review.

The weather was really bright and the colours just becoming autumnal. A walk at Tarn Howes, a wander around Hawkshead and a trip on the ferry started the break. The 3 course evening meal at the Swan See More  Read more information was superb. Our room was quiet and had a wonderful mountain view. We loved the country inn atmosphere. On day 2 we enjoyed the good weather and walked around Rydal water crossing over to Rydal housefor a cup of tea after visiting the very peaceful church. Then on the coffin route back to the car. From there we visited the open market in Keswick and Castlerigg stone circle before another superbmeal at the Swan. Sunday we meandered home via Grasmere and the shops, Ambleside and the outdoor shops and lakeland. A very relaxing weekend. I only wish we had another day to go to the theatre by thelake.   Collapse  Hide

Valentine Weekend In The Lakes

Excellent weekend - the staff were great, providing chocolates and a rose for all ladies and young girls staying for that weekend on both the 13th and 14th of February. Food was superb, breakfast See More  Read more information was normal buffet style but the cooked breakfasts were available at extra costs. The light cooked breakfst was sufficient because the 'traditional english' was huge!!! Car parking was well organised -valet parking and recovery (the hotel has a large car park, with barrier, approx 100m away). Big guest lounge witha views and newspapers for that after-breakfast chillout time. Well recommended, willvisit again.   Collapse  Hide
