5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were just on a day out to the Lake District and were really hungry and looking for a place to stop. All of a sudden we found this... We didn't stay in the hotel, but we had dinner. The food was excellent and of a good quality. Would definitely recommend it ;)

Dropped by for a drink as it was a warm sunny evening and the beer garden looked great. It was indeed lovely sat by the river in the sun. We decided to stay for some food as the staff were really friendly and the menu looked nice. It is not a huge menu choice but I tend to find big... More

Recently stayed at the Stanley arms and was very disappointed with the overall condition of the hotel. Staff were friendly enough but the condition of the accommodation was not satisfactory. Viewed a few rooms and all were of the same. Bathroom decoration in particular was of a low standard in all of them from pipework to dirty Tile grout. Every... More

I highly recommend this B & B hotel for your visit to the Lake District. Centrally located for most of the attractions,clean rooms, excellent food and the owners Clive and Mel are friendly and helpful.

This place is in a fantastic location popped in for drinks after a great walk along the river running next to the Stanley. Beer garden is perfect for relaxing soaking up the sun with a cool beer. Will be returning on next visit to Cumbria.

Booked on the internet. Arrived late and warned them that we were going to do so. Shown to our room by the friendly and helpful bar staff. We appeared to be the only hotel guests, which made the room all the more inexplicable. Carpet brown for a good foot with filth by the door. Bathroom had oodles of trailing cobwebs,... More

Stopped here by chance one lunchtime, what a great find. Very warm friendly welcome from the staff in the bar. Good range of choices on the menu, we opted for the homemade pie, which turned out to be an excellent choice. When the food was delivered, we got good size portions of piping hot food, extra gravy was a really... More

My wife and I have often passed the hotel on our way up to our holiday cottage at Braystones, we always promised ourselves that we would pop in and finally we did on Tuesday. We were instantly made to feel at home by Dorothy the Manageress, the hotel was spotless, including the toilets. We made a 10 minute coffee and... More
