A popular hotel in Grasmere, which suffered extensive damage to its ground floor during Storm Desmond in January, has reopened after a refurbishment to bring it back to its former glory.
The Daffodil Hotel & Spa, which sits on the shore of Grasmere lake, has undergone a complete renovation to its ground floor to include a new lobby area with reception and concierge desks, new bar and an enclosed seating area.
Executive chef, Graham Harrower, who achieved the hotel’s first AA rosette shortly after his arrival last year, has created a range of new menus for the reopening, including a selection of small plates to capitalise on the trend for sharing plates.
Pastry chef, Sarah Howe, has also created a new afternoon tea menu, which includes miniature doughnuts, strawberries and cream, cake pops and pink macaroons.
The Daffodil Hotel reopened on Monday July 4. Work is still being completed to its award-winning spa, which will reopen in September.
