“Overnight stay”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Stayed one night on cycling trip, this is really good, unpretentious coastal town accommodation that suited our purposes perfectly. Great rates, comfortable and clean accommodation with everything you need. Friendly, welcoming hosts and staff, good value food (and plenty of it) in the restaurant and a great breakfast bar and superb fat lads' full english breakfast that kept us going for hours. Based on my experience would happily recommend and will definitely stay again when passing that way. ,

After a friendly welcome at reception we were shown to our room which was exceptional and featured stunning views of the estuary. The room like the rest of the hotel was spotless and very homely with all you could expect, even boasting binoculars to watch the wildlife. I had mentioned my wife was gluten free when booking and this proved no problem at all. GF biscuits were in the room with the coffee and tea facilities, the owner went out of his way to go through the GF options when we decided to have our dinner there and GF bread was available for toast at breakfast. DVDs are available free to hire from reception and all the staff were very friendly.
Arnside itself though only a small village is a beautiful place to visit. We went on a long walk along the coast and round to Silverdale through gorgeous scenery then the next day visited Leighton Moss RSPB reserve which is just down the road. With the Lakes, Grange over Sands, the Dales and Morecambe Bay all easily accessible you will not be short of things to do. All in all friendly, welcoming quality accomodation.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the estuary.

Stayed in Arnside purposely for a peaceful weekend, was make very welcome by the staff on arrival, didnt meet Tony and Jeanette till later who were a realy nice couple, Jeanette actually originates close to where I come from and she was realy down to earth. Tony had all the neccessary local info and even looked on his computer for train times ( the west coast, Grange over sands, Ulverston, Barrow etc ) are easily visited with ease on the train from Arnside, The room was spotless and extremely comfortable, good food at the start and end of the day. Had to park on the road at the front as there is building work and the car park is restricted but this wasnt a problem. The building work will create another 7 en suite rooms of which 2 will be family rooms and this can only enhance Tony and Jeanettes business, these are expected to be completed in April. Dont just book a room have a look what you like, ask for it by name and Tony will do his best. I can certainly reccommend Ye Olde Fighting Cocks and equally " The Lakeland" room. Thanks for a great stay

Room Tip: Great views from the front rooms

Stayed at the Ye Olde fighting Cocks in January as I was working in the area, although Booking .com stated the room had a bath it did not but the owners very kindly upgraded me to a room with a bath at no extra cost. My stay was very enjoyable lovely people very warm and friendly. The food was delicious with a choice of smaller portions on the menu for people with a lesser appetite, Will definately return next time I am in the area.

Stayed here after a long week at work to unwind. Did exactly that. My partner and I arrived at tea time, parking was easy and the staff were organised as we arrived. They quickly showed us to our room, which had all the necessary amenities and was clean. We booked a table in the restaurant where the food was lovely, normal pub prices and the bar staff were lovely. Upon returning to our room, there was more than enough water for two baths and a nice touch that there was two dressing gowns in the wardrobe too! Bed was very comfortable and we had a lovely lake view. Champagne is available in the rooms for a small extra cost, great whilst enjoying the view on a sunny evaning! Only downsides were that the bathroom was slightly dated, although very clean and the corridor outside our room smelled musty, but we loved the luxury and comfort of the room we were given. Very reasonably priced. Would return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lovely view.

Hi

Many thanks for your positive review and nice comments, I am pleased you enjoyed all aspects of our food, accommodation and Bar areas, and that our aim is to provide value for money products and produce.

With regard to the musty smell, as I am sure you saw we were having a new roof put on owing to the storms, in a 400 year building this was a huge task, and in 1 or 2 places water did penetrate, thankfully with the work finished this is a thing of the past. The bathrooms have all now been finished and have all been updated.

I would also like to say we are constructing 7 new rooms in our 250 year old barn, these will have luxury en suites and modern bedrooms, which will give people the, option.

Once again many thanks for taking the time

Tony
