On a charity bike ride we needed somewhere to stop outside with bikes and equipment. On arrival a very helpful employee took our water bottles and filled them for us and allowed us to use the facilities. Brilliant customer service.

We enjoyed a night here after a long day on the C2C. Nice evening meal and good service. The packed lunches were hearty for our next walk but the breakfasts a wee bit small. Having porridge as an option would be good too.

Thought the environment was lovely, you can eat in the bar area or more formally in the restaurant. Chose to eat in the bar as had two young children, which was lovely and relaxing with log burner. Menu was reasonably priced, ranged from about £8.00 to £14.00. Kids food was around £4.00 (pizza, sausage, fish fingers etc). Food was of... More

We arrived wet and tired but the manager / receptionist was extremely helpful. He ensured we were fed before the kitchen closed and the meal was of a very high standard. We were impressed with the quality of the room and it was large and modern. I never stop at Shap but if I ever do I would definitely return... More

For what charges a very high price (£100) for what it is, we paid extra for a deluxe room but all we got was substandard. Not good value compared to other hotels we have recently stayed at in the Lake District. It is a pub with rooms and restaurant rather than a £100 a night hotel. There is no reception... More

Shap. We have always had a preconceived conception of a remote, boring nowhere with nothing ever happening. Goodness me how wrong we were. The intention on arrival was to have a quick pint on a hot day after a long walk around Wet Sleddale. Upon arrival we were greeted by wonderfully hospitable staff who were so accommodating to our needs.... More

Stayed for one night whilst doing C2C. Particular comments are: 1. Be prepared for quite a walk after you finish on path for the day as The Greyhound is at end of High Street. Consequently in good location to get back on route in the morning. Shap itself is a place of rural decline and not particularly pleasant. 2. The... More
