We have just returned from a two night stay, staying here while spending the day at Cartmel races. We were in a room overlooking the estuary with a lovely seating area to watch the world go by. The room was clean and very comfortable however when I book a double room I don't expect the bed to be two singles... More

The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was reasonable though am not convinced it is fresh local produce. We had a lovely view from our bedroom which was a good size though the shower a bit on the small size. Plenty of tea and coffee provided. Beware the rules in the rooms regarding food and drink.

In new rooms, they not bad but very bad drain smell in disabled room. Location very good. Main building and surrounding car park a bit grubby. Breakfast room very cafe like definitely Not four star. Cooked your own toast, serve yourself tea. All very basic much like a canteen.

This is a top quality establishment. Very welcoming, top class modern rooms with a beautiful view across the sea. Breakfast was delicious, rooms really comfortable and prices very good value. Parking is available on site, showers great with nice shower gel and shampoo, too. Can't fault it.

This is a lovely little pub in a beautiful area, I wish it hadn't been as windy on our visit so we could have sat outside and enjoyed the view. We received a really warm welcome from the young man behind the bar and Michelle our waitress was so friendly and attentive, she couldn't do enough for you. They do... More

We stayed one night here. It is in the most fabulous position with spectacular views. This place could be excellent with just a little work. We stayed in the annexe in an upstairs room. The stairs gave a bad first impression as there were cigarette ends all over. One of the downstairs rooms had a horrible dirty ashtray outside on... More

The Fighting Cocks is in a great location with views over the estuary. We stayed the one night in the Luxury rooms accommodation. The rooms are very small, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the estuary. Not sure where the luxury description comes from other than the availability of towelling robes. The rooms could be cleaner with dust around the... More

Well if you're looking for somewhere to stay for Cartmel races then this place is great. however although room comfortable and clean, we returned home from the races to find our ground floor room was unlocked and open door, so just a heads up that this sort of thing can happen. To be fair, the manager on duty was concerned... More
