We spent two nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the rooms are spacious and comfy. The bathrooms are basic but functional and don't detract from the overall experience of a really nice hotel in an amazing location. I would love to stay here again

Bought a great deal on Amazon Local for this hotel and enjoyed two nights in a lovely village, welcoming surroundings and ate great food. The staff here were lovely and couldn't do enough for us especially whilst we were dining. It was great to have vegetarian choices on the menu and the food was very tasty and nicely presented. I...

Stayed for two nights at this wonderful quirky inn. Richard and his friendly team made us very welcome. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant part of the pub, and service with a smile. Breakfast in the morning was a choice off full cooked English or some thing more lighter, served lovely... More

My friend and I stayed just for one night but wish it had been more. I was able to take my two Jack Russell and we were all made very welcome. The accommodation is very comfortable, the staff friendly and very obliging. Food delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment and I cant wait to re visit myself.

Stayed for two nights at the Cavendish Arms in Cartmel. Our room was an executive king size room 23 which was located away from the in. Across the village square above a shop. The room which was at the top of the building was wonderfully appointed and we couldn't fault it. Richard and his team were very friendly and made... More

I need to now start this differently, I had previously sent a review via my phone and its not registered and I was going to leave it,but after receiving a reply from Mr Richard English via Living Social in which I said" poor service and Room 1's toilet was appalling" I now feel it's only fair to forewarn future customers....

Thank you once again for your third review regarding the same visit.

To any potential guest who reads the review, if on this occasion we... More

We're locals, went there a couple of days ago with an Aussie friend & we all loved it - the food, the atmosphere, the service and the range of beers. A great option when in Cartmel to add to all of the other lovely places to eat.

unfortunately have just returned from one of the most beautiful villages I have ever been too. I booked a two night stay for my partner and myself on a Groupon deal, when we arrived we were very warmly greeted by our host Richard and made to feel very welcome straight away. He promptly showed us to our room above Perfect... More

We've just come back from a fabulous stay at Cavendish Arms. We were made very welcome from the start and were very well looked after. My husband is a coeliac and they went out of their way to be accommodating. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed the stay as well. We ate there both nights. The food is scrummy and there is... More
