Stayed over for one night Saturday 23/04/17 rooms clean and acceptable.However the roundly behaviour in the bar was totally unacceptable for an establishment that has paying guests.I can only describe it as the local nightclub for the younger locals of the area.The noise levels were ridiculously loud,dancing on window ledges and music on loud volume. Will never stay here again

Arrived around 8.15pm after a massive long day trekking, all gear was near the bar area, the only place we stayed that didn't take or offer to take your bags to the rooms. Female manager was rude....only made dinner by the skin of our teeth but had 30 seconds to order. We all made it easy and ordered the same...

I booked this hotel for my cousin and friend who were staying for my daughters wedding nearby at Knipe Hall. They were greeted in a very off hand manner on arrival, and told their room was on the second floor - no offer of assistance with baggage. On the way up my friend said "Oh its 2 floors up" and...

We visited on Wednesday the 21st of September on the way home from Penrith, I was with my partner and my mum and we were looking for somewhere nice to eat on the way home to Kendal. The staff were lovely and friendly and the food was excellent value, homemade and big portions. Me and my partner had chicken tikka...

Arrived in late around 8:30pm after a very long and exhausting day on the C2C. When we arrived our luggage was stacked in the foyer and we were advised by the bar staff that the kitchen had closed and unable to reopen. This did not go down well as we were completely exhausted and in need of a warm meal....

We stayed here for one night as part of walking the Coast to Coast. Staff were friendly and fast when we arrived. We were in our room in a flash! Our double room was quite modern, very large (actually had an extra bed) and quiet. Bathroom looked recently refurbished and was finished to an exemplary hotel standard. Impressively, the pub...

The sofa bed is on the ground floor. Double bed is upstairs. The town is quiet and pleasant. There is a good bakery and few nice restaurant....

I really couldn't recommend this hotel for people seeking a local experience - probably OK for business travellers if better options unavailable. Rooms, breakfast and service all average. Needs refreshing.

Arrived soaking wet into Shap and straight out to this pub for a meal as we were advised it was the only place to eat in Shap apart from the fish and chip shop. The pub was busy at 6.30 with people watching football and the staff were quite offhand with us but possibly because they were so busy. I...

Really nice people running the place who are well organised. The rooms vary quite a bit but are all clean and absolutely fine for a night on the Coast to Coast. Good food & beer and a hearty breakfast.
