COVID-19 Policy

Here at The Daffodil, our team members have been trained in enhanced cleaning routines following The World Health Organisation COVID-19 guidelines. We are paying special attention to high-touch areas such as lift buttons and door handles, disinfecting them at regular intervals. Hand sanitising stations are available in lobbies and corridors. To ensure the safety of our staff and guests we have had to make some changes to the way the hotel operates and the services that we are able to offer. As government guidelines and laws are amended, we will continue to review our COVID-19 policy. Full up to date details can be found on our COVID-19 FAQs page.

The Spa at The Daffodil

A unique concept in the Lake District, the Spa at The Daffodil combined with top European skincare house Germaine de Capuccini offers a truly relaxing and unwinding experience. The Spa is open daily between 8am - 8pm. All residents aged 16 and over can enjoy complimentary access to the Spa including the Thermal Pool, Sauna and Steam Room during their stay. Guest will have access form 2pm on day of arrival until 12noon on their day of departure. We regret that owing to the nature of the facilities children under 16 will not be permitted in the Spa or thermal pool. A range of luxury treatments including massage, facials, body wraps and more are available from 9am – 6pm daily. We do recommend booking early so as to avoid disappointment.


Situated just on the edge of Grasmere water, the Dining Room, Lounge and Lakeside Terrace offer a stylish, contemporary, yet relaxed dining experience like no other with stunning views as far as the eye can see. Dinner inclusive guests have an allocation of £35 per adult per night to spend on food. Any unused dinner allocation can’t be carried over to future nights. All drinks will be charged as taken. We advise booking your dinner time advance so as to get your preferred time slot.
