Stayed here for two nights with friends who had previously stayed here last October and booked this stay for us all to go to the Cartmel Race Day. It was our first visit to Cartmel, a quaint quiet village that transforms to a vibrant village on Race Day. The Cavendish Arms is a gem - full of character, both in... More

My wife and I call in on the Cavendish regularly for lunch when walking in this delightful area. The staff are invariable charming and the bar lunch menu is ideal for us and freshly made. Cartmel is stuffed full of cafes and pubs but after trying many of them we return to the Cavendish where you can be sure of... More

We stayed here for three nights on a groupon deal and very happy with the overall experience. We were in room 6 and it is a small room but perfectly adequate for our short break and it was very quaint. There was a large double bed with lovely bedclothes, bedside tables either side with bedside lamps, a hanging space which... More

First if you check all my reviews you will find I am mostly a positive reviewer, not this time. We had a Groupon voucher which gave us B & B + a bottle of wine if dining on 2 courses. We checked in with a delightful lady who gave us our room 9 key, on entering the room the first... More

The room was well appointed however the en-suite had no shower. The plug didn't work in the bath. Our bedroom was located remotely from the main hotel and access to our room is via external fire escape overlooking the waste compound of adjacent public house. The breakfast was basic and was not considered to be a full English Breakfast.

After getting the room via a living social deal I wasn't expecting such an excellent stay. Very friendly staff showed us to room which was clean and adequate. Had a beautiful evening meal and good breakfast. Location good right in village and very quiet.

Just spent 2 nights at this old hotel. From the minute we arrived the staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. if you are in Cartmel I strongly recommend you have dinner in this hotel - the food was magnificent. I would have given a 5 rating but the room, although spotlessly clean was basic as befits a... More

Shabby chic. Staff very helpful and friendly. Room very clean but chips in paintwork need attending to. Food very good. Right in the centre of Cartmel Village. . Nice to have real coffee in the bedroom. Car park entrance narrow and quite a challenge if you have a big car. Hot water in the shower disappeared with my other half... More

Popped in for a beer, checked out the food menu. Wine menu limited, beer not great. Eschewed opportunity to eat on basis of beer menu; may just be me ;-)BUT... Great venue, really relaxed, just needs a bit of attention to the menu, which was a bit expensive and a touch old fashioned.

Stayed here on a two night break with our dog in June. Couldn't fault anything. Staff were very friendly, room spotless, very quirky as you would expect from somewhere do old. Loads of atmosphere in the bar and nice outside area to sit too We ate in the restaurant and found the food excellent quality and presentation. Cartmel is a... More
