The other reviews say ' you get what you pay for ' and this is certainly true here. We stayed here as it was close to friends. We arrived late and had to go out pretty soon, so didn't really get the full ambience! Upon return however, we were greeted by the corridors smelling of cabbage, tired decor and 70s... More

Stayed here as part of a church weekend away. Very impressed with food, considering numbers and cost. Very friendly staff who responded so well to an unexpected staff change causing a slow service at one meal. I didn't swim, but the kids and families loved it. As has been said in other reviews, the bungalow accommodation was very tired. It... More

Stayed with family for a weeks holiday in one of their pine lodges. Lodge was well appointed, clean. The hotel has a very good leisure pool with a small pool for toddlers. Parts of the hotel need refurbishment but the staff were friendly. It is a hotel run by Christians and grace is said before the evening meal there are... More

Abbot Hall Hotel offers you what you pay for. So if you're looking for a cheap hotel, with a great location, off road parking, an indoor swimming pool, beautiful grounds, walking distance to Kents Bank Railway station and a rather old fashioned feel about the place - then this is it! They provide a cheap alternative to other more expensive... More

Pros: Cheap ...for in the lakes beautiful main building in truly beautiful setting Near to Cartmel for the racing (near by car NOT by foot) Good breakfast food Cons: Cheap. Wood chip wallpaper covered in what looks like a gloss paint, single glazing, basically the whole site looked like it was in dire need of modernisation. Small and pokey rooms.... More

I only gave 1 star because zero wasn't available. To start with the service was awful. Left waiting at check in for 20 minutes with poor customer service skills. The room. I honestly can't believe they let humans stay in a place like this. Mould , damp , dirt and that was just the bathroom. It was like walking into... More

When I first saw the Abbot Hall Hotel, I was struck by a strong feeling of deja-vu, although I've never been there before. I think I may possible have seen a picture of it on my Grandma's wall in the way-back-when. The house was built in 1840, on the site, it is believed, of a building raised by the monks... More

Kents Bank, Grange over Sands is a good base to explore the Lakes District and Abbot Hall is reasonable accommodation is you are on a budget because accommodation is very expensive in peak season. The rooms were by no means luxurious and beds had seen betters days but the Hotel's facilities are generally good which includes free parking. If operating... More

Genuinely don't know where to start. We were booked this hotel as we were working in Barrow and this hotel is cheap and close(ish). Upon arrival it became obvious this place is a Christian Guild place, which promotes communal dining, and a community spirit, I'm a 22 year old travelling on Business, so not what I wanted. The room was... More
