This hotel had good sized rooms with en-suite facilities. The owners were welcoming and helpful especially with allowing us to dry our clothes in their boiler room! Our room was at the front of the hotel and was very noisy due to the hotel being located on a main room. Our friends had a room on the level up and... More

We stopped by here for a evening meal as we were staying at a local B&B and were very impressed by the menu choices, the prices and the quality of the food. We met up with some other coast to coasters who were staying here and others who did the same as us, just dropped by for some food. We... More

Booked in here to overnight after Day 5 of my Coast to Coast walk. Check-in was easy. All staff were friendly/helpful. The food at dinner [giant chicken burger] and packed lunch were great. The bedroom was superb for an "inn with rooms" [I got a twin room at a single occupancy price] and the shower was large and superbly hot.... More

The King's Arm is a traditional old style pub. It is close to the end of the Main Street. It has wifi. It is comfortable but in need of some renovations. The staff were friendly and meals were served efficiently, which were all £7 each! Our room was on the top floor and we had a separate bathroom. Beds were... More

We stayed at this hotel on the C2C walk. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staff packed a nice lunch for us to take on the next day's hike and made porridge on request for breakfast as well as cooked to order eggs. The dinner menu was extensive with vegetarian options and reasonably priced with generous portions. Jacket potatoes... More

Stayed here for 4 nights whilst visiting family in Askham. It was a great base for us. Thanks to the owners Dave and Theresa who do a great job. Our room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was large and clean with a really good shower. Breakfast was great - a selection of cereal, juices and cooked breakfast. We didn't... More

This is more of a 'pub with rooms' than a hotel in my opinion, however, having said that we were very pleased with what we had there. We were in the area to attend a wedding and had room 5 for three nights. It was a twin bedded room at the back of the property, overlooking the garden, away from... More

Visited this Hotel as a meal for two as a prize in a local charity raffle. The hotel located in the village of Shap which prior to the building of the M6 Motorway was the main North South route from London to Glasgow, now a pleasant village with still a fair amount of traffic. The Kings Arms positioned alongside the... More

First time visit to Shap and welcomed by hotels proprietor and locals. Felt very comfortable in a local pub environment. Evening meal was no problem to produce. Rooms comfortable and pleasant views over open farm land. Full English breakfast excellent with other options available and cooked to order.
