As you know, it's not long until The Daffodil is back open and we really can't wait to welcome our first guests. From Monday 4th July, the hotel will be open as usual with the exception of the Spa and on Monday 5th September, the refurbishment will be complete with our brand new Spa opening for guests.
New Interior Design
Here at The Daffodil we are working away on the refurbishment to our ground floor. We have brought in some leading interior design agencies who represent the very best of modern luxe interiors and usual Daffodil style. Think natural textures, metallic accents, indulgent lighting... Did someone say a brand new downstairs bar?
After hours of researching photographers we have found not only one but two inspiringly creative photographers who will capture the Daffodil experience. We have shot everything from interiors to food and even Grasmere Village itself - we can't wait to share this with you.
Our Spa refurbishment is well underway and we have discovered some amazing, unique features along the way. We are currently working with some of the UK's top product houses we think you are going to love here at The Daffodil.
New Menu & Afternoon Tea
Our creative kitchen team have been very busy. They have taken this opportunity to travel and work in some of the best UK Hotels and Restaurants, acquiring new exciting skills. We can reveal that upon our re-opening in July, we will be bringing you a brand new and exciting Restaurant concept, we can't wait to share it with you!
Sarah, our talented Pastry Chef has been experimenting with our Afternoon Tea menu... Think divine cakepops, delicious miniatures (doughnuts!), macaroons and a scrumptious selection of savouries as well as everyone's favourite - scone's...Yum! We can't wait to unveil it.
