Overall an OK stay. We had an issue on arrival - we booked 3 rooms but they only recorded 2. They did however go out of their way to accommodate us, and gave us a bottle of Prosecco by way of an apology. The staff were very kind and friendly - cannot be faulted. The location is great - a... More

We enjoyed our stay at the uplands but it could have been so much better. The hotel and restaurant are comfortably and fashionably designed. The food was very tasty and well presented. We were surprised, however, when on two nights there we had a lengthy wait between courses. Apparently when there is a large party booked for an evening meal... More

Hi Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I'm pleased to say that since your stay with us at the beginning of June the showers have been fixed. Unfortunately a lot of work has been required that has necessitated prioritisation. Showers in every room that had an issue have now had individual pumps fitted which... More

We stayed here for one night. What lovely people, and staff here. The food was amazing, we had a lovely breakfast and an evening meal. The rooms need a little tlc, but it was quiet and I had a good nights sleep.

Hi Thank you for taking the time to review. The chefs were pleased to read your comments about the food - they appreciate it when a customer has enjoyed their food enough to let them know about it. I'm glad you had a good nights sleep and unfortunately you are right the rooms do need a little TLC. This is... More

When we booked 6 months in advance to stay here, asked if they needed credit card details and they said no everything is fine, your in the book. A bit apprehensive I phoned back another 3 times over the following weeks to check the booking was in, "Yes it's all confirmed", was the reply. 5 months later they realised they... More

It is a shame that you have been unable to have the same enjoyable experience with us that the vast majority of customers have had, as evidenced by other reviews. As you will have seen from a great number of reviews on here, the small team here at the Uplands is a friendly, approachable team that goes out of their... More

Just home from a wonderful bank holiday weekend. Neil, Sue and family are great hosts and we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The views from our room were spectacular and the cooked breakfast in the morning delicious. Given that it was Cartmel Races this weekend there was understandably a long wait for taxis and we had a cooler box... More

The hotel is situated in between Cartmel and Grange, with both within a (hilly) walking distance. The hotel staff are helpful and friendly without being intrusive. The room was clean, spacious and modern, but the highlight was the fried breakfast. Superb sausages, bacon with crispy fat (a rare beast in a hotel or cafe), delicious black pudding, really tasty portabella... More

We booked a 2 night stay here as we were going to Cartmel races. I don't like to be too negative of the place because the downstairs bar and dining area was lovely, and the owners & staff very warm and friendly, but we were very disappointed with our room (Winster). However, it may be one of the rooms yet... More

Just had a two night stay here and was lovely but really disappointed with our 'upgraded' room. Is was tired, shabby and the bathroom stuck in an 70's time warp.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Uplands Hotel, overlooking breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and bay, offers an accommodation and dining experience unique in comparison to those situated within the centre of the bustling village of Cartmel: Whilst still within walking distance of popular sites of interest, its location serves to provide customers with a calm and relaxing atmosphere, catering to the need of those who wish not only to actively enjoy their stay in the Lake District, but also to experience the sense of peace and respite that the area brings. The local area offers a wide range of activities, including the lively and frequent events within the village and a large number of golf courses in a small radius, and the hotel itself stands within two acres of idyllic gardens and is within easy reach of Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in England and a beautiful example of the National Park’s namesake. ... more   less
