Well behaved dogs permitted even in the bedrooms, a big plus on a walking holiday. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the food good. Perhaps it was slightly overpriced for the standard of the room compared to other hotels on our holiday but acceptable. Coast to Coast walkers were thick on the ground so they obviously don't mind dirty boots... More

We stayed here as part of the C2C walk. It was a good choice because it is a full service hotel - accommodations, food and bar - which is nice after a long day of walking. It is a little way out of town and you have to double back to reach the C2C trail again in the morning. The... More

Stayed one night on a group walking holiday with dogs. They couldn't have been friendlier. Room was v comfortable though the ensure was tiny, which is the only real criticism. Evening food was good and beer excellent. Breakfast was also good with generous portions. Good value.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in April for a 3 night break over the weekend on our first ever Groupon deal. I had read the Tripadvisor reviews before we went and did wonder whether I had done the right thing in booking. This feeling disappeared as we walked into the reception area and was banished from my... More

Just back from a 3 night stay with a groupon voucher. The hotel was very comfortable with very friendly and helpful staff. Room 3 was a nice size, with a small en suite with shower etc. The meals we had in the hotel were tasty with good portions. Plenty to eat at breakfast each morning. Every where was kept clean...

We spent 2 nights here in April in the Sleddale Suite. Set in the quaint village of Shap this hotel is a lovely, well decorated hotel with wonderful customer service. We were given a lovely welcome by the young lady on the first day and shown to our suite. It was a large room with a huge, comfortable bed and... More

We came here February half term for two nights and also had breakfasts and dinners here too. When we arrived we were bowled over by the beautiful surroundings and the gorgeous, rustic building. We had a group on deal which was £89 for a deluxe double room for nights with breakfast and one dinner. I think this was good value,... More
