We arrived in Shap at 11pm on a Friday evening. Trying to find a room for the night. We arrived outside this lovely pub and had our fingers crossed they had a room we had been travelling for 3 hours. Lucky for us they had one room left, We felt very welcomed at the Kings Arms Hotel, the rooms were... More

Stayed here for one night on the C2C hike in a large , modern and quiet room overlooking the main street. The room was very comfortable with a terrific bathroom. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the food was both generous and really good and the only issue was they requested all guests have breakfast no later than 8am... More

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.
