What are Guestlink reviews?
Reviews from Guestlink allow genuine travellers who have booked their accommodation through any Guestlink-powered website to write about and share their experiences after their stay.
Why are reviews useful?
Many people like to consider other guests' experiences, as well as reading information provided by the accommodation provider themselves, to help them to find accommodation most suited to their needs.
What information do reviews include?
Each reviewer can mark the accommodation they stayed at out of five overall, and also for its cleanliness, staff service, value for money, location, services and facilities. Comments can be added to explain why a particular rating was given.
How do I know that the reviews are genuine?
Because all reviewers recently stayed at the accommodation they have written about, the information given is first-hand and verified. Content is monitored to ensure that nothing inappropriate is included such as profanity, threats, prejudiced comments and other non-family friendly language. In the unlikely event that a review contains inappropriate material, this can be reported to Guestlink using the Report Abuse link. This helps maintain the high quality of review content.
Each reviewer has to certify that they have no personal or business affiliation with the property they are reviewing, and that they have not been offered any incentive or payment to write the review before submitting their comments to ensure that the information given is trustworthy.
The owners of the accommodation being reviewed have the chance to view reviews before they are published, and can choose to submit comments in reply to points made in a review. However, as long as a review meets our guidelines it is posted whether it is positive or negative. Guestlink reserves the right to remove a review or Provider comment at any time for any reason.
Guestlink reviews are individual and therefore represent the subjective opinion of that traveller. The opinions expressed are those of guests who have booked their accommodation using Guestlink, and not of Guestlink. Guestlink do not endorse any of the opinions expressed by reviewers or in Provider comments. Guestlink never write reviews, change or influence review content.
How do I write reviews?
A few days after your stay at accommodation booked through a Guestlink-powered website, we will send an email to the email address you gave when booking containing a personalised link, unique to the booking, inviting you to leave a review of your accommodation. If for any reason you do not complete your booking, you will not receive an email. No registration or account setup is required in order to leave a Guestlink review.
Fill in the details with any information that you think might be helpful to other people thinking of booking a stay at the same accommodation, and submit the form. If you choose to, you can remove your name and leave a review anonymously; if you choose to do this, only your region and country, the date of your stay and what sort of group you travelled with are shown.
If you think of something to add later, you can click on the link in the email again and update the information you have already left. You can continue to do this until your review has been published or submitted for moderation.
Once the accommodation provider has read your comments and left a reply if they wish, your review may appear on any Guestlink-powered websites where the accommodation you stayed at is listed. It may take up to a week for your review to appear if it is not sent for moderation, and longer if moderation is required. Reviews don't expire, but reviews for the most recent stays appear first in order to give other travellers the most up-to-date, accurate and relevant information.

“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.
