Well furnished - Nice comfatable bed, Shower was only draw back - It was temperamental and was either cold or red hot or on its way between the two - So showering was a... More

We stayed for two nights at the Cavendish Arms (although disappointingly not in the hotel itself) but in one of the three rooms over the Perfect English shop in the square. Loved the hotel itself - full of character (and characters!). Our room was acessed via a metal fire escape type staircase and was large and airy with big windows... More

Had recent two night stay and can have no complaints, we stayed in room 5 one night and room 21 one night and both rooms were to a high standard. Dined in on one night and food was very good, bottom line is that if ever back in the area we would be more than happy to stay again.

We stayed at the Cavendish for one night midweek on an internet deal. As previous reviewers have mentioned the access to the car park is a bit tight and I was glad we took the Aygo and left the Winnebago at home! We checked in about a quarter to seven and reserved a table for dinner for 7.45 easily enough... More

Just back from 2 night's stay at the Cavendish Arms. Richard and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. We were a party of 13 for this years annual reunion. My husband and myself had never visited Cartmel before, what a lovely place! The entrance to the Cavendish Arms, on first approach, looks very tight ( you drive through... More

We stayed for 2 nights during the race weekend, lovely room, nice and clean. We had a lovely meal on our first night, breakfast were delicious. My only complaint was that I had booked 2 rooms a double room and a single occupancy double from Booking.com in February which you don't usually pay until you check out, but because it... More

Stayed for 2 nights over a busy racing weekend. The Cavendish Arms is an Old Coaching Inn, lovely - with all the expected low ceilings, wooden beams & squeaky floors plus, apparently, a resident ghost ( one of our party did claim to hear it in the night but that could have been as a result of too many glasses...

We spent Sunday night at the Cavendish on a great value deal. The place is quirky and old, with squeaky floors - and a very scary entrance to the car park if you drive anything larger than a mini! The staff were friendly the food great and the rooms functional and spotlessly clean. Would we return - a unanimous yes!
