From the friendly welcome on arrival, everything was great. The room and en suite were both large and very clean. Hospitality tray was well-stocked and the food was fine. Breakfast was hearty, and dinner was very reasonably priced and perfectly cooked and well presented. There was a TV in the bedroom and everything I could have wished for on an... More

While the Kings Arms is at the far end of town as you are hiking into Shap, you are rewarded the following day as it sits directly across from the start of next stage of the C2C. The hotel itself is nothing fancy, but it is clean & comfortable and exactly what I needed for my weary bones!

I ordered the layered Chicken ( chicken layered with Bacon cheese ) with veg,a really tasty meal,the Kings Arms as a homely atmosphere,with a range of real Ales and Scrumpy Cider,( cloudy ) well worth a visit.

Most impressed with the service in the restaurant area. Unfortunately didn't get the name of the man in charge but he made us feel welcome and ensured we had a great meal. He was quick to pick up on a mistake by one of his staff, ensuring our party of 4 was very satisfied

This is an excellent place to stay if you are on your way to Scotland from down South. It is literally a couple of minutes off the M6 at Shap. The accommodation was comfortable, the food excellent and the staff very freindly. I would recommend it over the Premier Inns at Carlisle for an overnight stop.

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
