Called in for a drink but wasn't keen on the beers so went for gin and tonic. That was fine. But the place is full of televisions, we counted at least 7 and the place is not a huge cavernous place. We sat opposite the bar and there were 4 or 5 playing different things above the bar. Why? Then... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at this pub come hotel and we were not disappointed in the least. Situated just 7 miles south of Kendal but within easy reach of the Lakes it makes this hotel a convenient base in which to explore. The Cross keys itself is a large pub with loads of space with...

I stayed at the Cross Keys Hotel on 15/8/16 for one night only in order to attend a wedding at the Villa Levens, which is about 4 miles up the road. On arrival at the Cross Keys there is a large car park at the rear of the pub, which is free. Check in was easy enough and I was... More

First impressions of the place we had high hopes. Seemed friendly as we walked in, but things got worse from there. We were given the keys to the cottage and when we looked around we found lots wrong. The bathroom lock was broken and the toilet leaked although this was fixed half way through our stay. The double room was... More

Spent last night here for a family birthday party in Kendal, location was perfect. The hotel was perfect, huge carpark, room was spotless and everything you could wish for in it, including two large bath robes, we were welcomed warmly on out arrival. The full English breakfast plus all the trimmings was superb. What a real bargain price for room,... More

We were moving house and hoped to stay in Kirkby Lonsdale at approx £130 per night but as it was last minute the only place near Arnside we could book was the Crosskeys in Milnthorpe at £65 per night. We have had a pint there before but never anything more. We arrived tired and stressed with our move but were... More

Lovely service, not just by staff, by locals in the bar too... As we used the entrance from the rear car park, local 'lads' directed us to where we needed to check in... Carrying one of our cases round too... Shown to our twin room with en-suite... Some may call the decor dated, I'd say in fitting with its surroundings...... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel is surrounded by a wealth of history, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, such as Leighton Moss, and a wide range of visitor attractions Milnthorpe has a long history - its busy Friday street market in the Square dates from 1334. The village's heyday was from the middle of the eighteenth to the middle of the nineteenth centuries when many of the buildings in the centre of the village (now a conservation area) were completed including the present Cross Keys Hotel.
