Shap was the fifth overnight stop on our coast to coast walk. Shap is a bleak looking place and it has nothing much going for it. It was once the main route from England to Scotland but since the arrival of the M6 there seems to be little reason for its existence except for a factory that produces lime for... More

Looks like this place has been returned! It's spacious, clean, well laid out. The staff are very very welcoming and friendly. The rooms have ensuite facilities and the shower decent. Towels soft and fluffy. Bed linen crisp and decor modern. For the price it's perfect. Breakfast was consistent and the full English cooked well (big portion tho) beer garden at... More

Two tired travellers, we arrived here late in the night on a previous trip. Soon felt at home with a lovely meal. My husband watched the soccer (kept his Liverpool affiliation quiet) whilst I had an early night. The host cooked us a beaut breakfast the next day, and kept us company. It was Guy Fawkes night and the "highlight"... More

I cant vouch for the food as I have never eaten here however I have been in many times over the years and the staff cant be faulted, friendly and always willing to go the extra mile for the coast to coast walkers, also a favourite pub for the locals. The rooms are nice and modern also. The back of... More

Stopped over during July 2013. Having being spoilt in the lakes my initial impressions on entering the hotel were not good, but I was soon taken in by the friendliness of the locals, fellow travellers and the hosts. The room was good, as was the bar meal (great ribs) and the breakfast. Intend to return later in the year as... More

We were doing the Coast to Coast in May 2013 and stayed in this hotel after the only other hotel where we were booked had closed and the proprietor took off! We arrived early and were told sharply by the man behind the counter that he supposed we could go to the room but not to expect the heater or... More

Pleasant stay. Very functional place, a bit "plastic pub" feel to it for my liking. But food was good and room was clean. Shap just doesn't seem to have any of the charm of the other villages on the walk.

Excellent place to stay, staff all great and we were made really welcome. C2C path opposite the pub. Good food and the place had a really nice atmosphere. Will be staying here again. All rooms we booked were clean and tidy with the heating on.

Spacious en suite room with large bathroom (nice hot shower). Modern decor and comfortable bed. They didn't serve food the evening we stayed but the landlord was up front about that when we booked, plus there are other places to eat, including a great fish and chip restaurant. The juke box was on until 10 ish and is audible from... More

Pleasant stay. Nice big room. A little traffic noise, being situated on the main street. Room a little dated, but very large, comfortable bed, fair instant hot water. Basic breakfast, tinned tomatoes, overdone poached eggs. Good stay overall
