We stayed in suites 8 and 9. Very nice rooms, free wifi, a/c, Nespresso, big flat tv, DVD, powerful shower. 9 is upstairs and has sloping ceilings, so is a bit more cosy, 8 is lower floor with high ceilings. Parking in the village can be tricky, but there is more space at the race course. Very pleasant stay, excellent... More

As others have said this is a restaurant with rooms, not a hotel. We were in room two which is a standard room above L'Enclume. We checked in at the reception beside Rogan & Co and the receptionist walked us to the room. A very nice personal touch, also gives opportunity to ask and learn about the village and restaurants....

We came to L'Enclume for two nights to celebrate our friend's birthday. We booked it as part of the two night experience and also ate at L'Enclume and Rogan &Co (both absolutely superb and reviewed separately). The deluxe rooms were all booked so we each had a standard room and as they went they were absolutely fine - but nothing... More

Sold as a restaurant with rooms, the rooms are comfortable and well appointed - the fresh milk and shortbread nice touches but its not a Hotel although they charge hotel prices £199 on a Saturday night and £179 Friday. Walking to breakfast (served at Rogan &Co) albeit through a beautiful village in pouring rain isn't pleasant. The breakfast was tasty... More

We stayed at l'enclume for 2 nights in room 18, it was a very big room with a very very nice bathroom that had a large rainfall walk in shower and nice big bath. We really enjoyed the bathroom! The room had a really nice kingsize bed and plenty of room for 2 people, it had a lovely view to... More

We had long planned to visit L'Enclume and we're not disappointed! We came with 2 other couples and we all like luxury hotels and good food. Caramel is a gorgeous unspoilt village off the beaten track and not really somewhere you would just pass through. The hotel has a number of rooms some with the restaurant and others a short... More

We stayed here in the deluxe suite for our wedding anniversary for two nights. The room was big enough to hold a party in and the bed was enormous. Huge bathroom and great shower. Lovely toiletries (which I find rare in any hotel these days). Good refreshment selection, especially the shortbread. Wifi access is straightforward and works well - a... More

I highly recommend staying at L'Enclume if you want a gastronomic weekend. The two day package leaves you sated and extremely relaxed - dining at both Rogan & Co and L'Enclume with breakfasts in between. We stayed in the suite - room 9 - which was large and for the extra money, good value. It was peaceful and very close... More

We are big Simon Rogan fans and having had the pleasure of eating in his other restaurants we were very excited to come here as a Christmas treat. We were here on the 20 December and immediately we were struck by how pretty the village Cartmel was. Home of the sticky toffee pudding we could not resist buying a few... More
