Had just one night here but very enjoyable. Clean, welcoming, although I missed breakfast which did not start until 9am, my partner was able to stay and fully recommended it. Rooms could do with refreshing in terms of towels etc, but overall very clean and an enjoyable stay.

Ours was a KGB deal and well worth the money £99 for 2 nights B&B and evening meal on first night..The staff where lovely. We did have trouble finding the Hotel but with a phone call to them we found it no time at all. Well worth the visit.

The first time I stayed in the area and visited this pub with friends I found the owners rude and unwelcoming. We wanted to get some lunch however when we discovered food wasn't being served we were practically laughed out of the pub by the owner when we asked if anywhere else may be at 3pm in the afternoon. Something... More

Firstly I need to point out we got a deal via KGB Deals for £99 for two nights B&B and evening meal on the first night which was an absolute bargain! The hotel is quite easy to find as its on the main road, parking is limited but we managed to park both nights we stayed within the grounds of... More

Have just spent two lovely nights in this very quaint Cumbrian Inn .We received a warm ,friendly welcome and were shown to a cosy ,comfortable room (room 5). Evening meal was fabulous- locally sourced and delicious .Breakfasts each morning were excellent and piping hot. Service too was first rate - helpful and friendly.A lovely culinary experience.

If it's a hotel you want then book a hotel. We booked the engine inn as part of a KGB deal. The Engine inn was everything you expect from an inn, proper local feel to the bar and full of friendly locals. Coal fires in the bar and lounge areas really warmed you up when coming in from a cold... More

We found this little gem via a KGB deal. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon for a two night stay and were checked in and shown to our room by the owners daughter. Our room, room 1, was quite small but was fine for a weekend break. Given that the pub is very old it was a pleasant surprise to... More

We arrived after a long drive to find I'd booked the wrong dates. This was not a problem as the friendly barmaids cheerfully changed it at no extra charge and took our bags up to our room. The pub is anchient and it and the village look better than movie set with a warm cosy atmosphiere in the bar and... More
