We spent two nights at the Greyhound Hotel in Shap and couldn't fault it. The room (one of the suites) was well decorated and comfortable, the food was excellent and the staff were brilliant. This is the first time that we took our dog to a hotel and we found that she was made welcome, they even provided some warm... More

We booked this on a Groupon deal. When we visited the weather was very cold with blustery snow showers. I must say staff were very friendly and the food was great. However on arrival our room had no milk or loo roll (small things I know, but a cup of tea was needed after the journey). Staff replaced these when... More

I and friends booked to stay here for a sporting event this summer. 6 months later we were told that our bookings had not been made. When I spoke to the manager (Jane) I'm afraid she was not truthful. She first told me that she had bought the hotel from someone she didn't know and not taken on the bookings?!... More

Stayed here in the new year on a groupon 2 night £119 special which included an evening meal on 1 night. Our stay was very pleasent, staff very friendly, and food ok. For some reason we were not put in a premium room as per the offer which we didn't realise until afterwards. The room was small and bathroom cupboard... More

We arrived after a long journey up from Tamworth and all the staff were really helpful and welcoming. The room was clean and tidy and comfy too. The food here is a real plus point and absolutely fantastic! We didn't have a single issue for the whole weekend and everything was perfect. I would recommend this place to anybody else... More

My partner and I have just returned from an overnight stay at the Greyhound and we both agree that it was a great stay. The staff were really friendly and on our arrival, even though it was only for a one night stay, we were shown the restaurant and breakfast room then taken up to our room and shown around... More

My partner and I have just spent a lovely 2 night stay here on a Groupon voucher. We hoped to get there sooner than we did as we got stuck in traffic on the M6. We phoned the landlord to explain we would be checking in later that we first thought he was so good and say it was no... More
