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....

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

Told to dump the car anywhere in the car park after saying it... More

Just returned from a relaxing two night break which we thoroughly enjoyed. The Cavendish is a lovely old building full of character and whilst some of the decor is a little tired and could do with refreshing, it is nonetheless comfortable and charming. The food was excellent - we ate in the restaurant on both evenings - and enjoyed a... More

We have just enjoyed a two night break here (dog included) We were made to feel most welcome. Richard the owner and Grant were very helpful. I know some reviews say the rooms are i bit tired and they perhaps are, but this is a very old building so it retains it's character and we didn't mind it.The bar /... More

This is a comfortable place to stay. We were given a warm welcome and shown to room 2 in the main hotel. It is a reasonable size double room with ensuite bathroom, but in need of redecoration and some more modern furniture. On the first night we had our 2 course dinner in the bar area and our deal included... More

We spent two days last week in the pretty village of Cartmel staying at the Cavendish Arms. Our room was in the ' Perfect English' part of the hotel overlooking the Square and was very spacious and comfortable. We dined at the Cavendish on the first evening and the food was very good especially the fish pie and we had... More

My wife and I stayed at the Cavendish Arms for two night during August. We found the place to be full of character definitely not a chain type hotel at all (thankfully). The staff were welcoming and friendly and the restaurant was very nice, the food at both dinner and breakfast was of a very high standard, we both enjoyed... More
