We stayed for two nights arriving late on the Friday night. The lady on reception was very helpful and friendly showing us up to our room. Then we decided to have a couple of drinks in the bar there she was again the same lady. At breakfast the same lady took our order and bought out our full English breakfast...

We have just arrived back home after a two-night stay at the Tufton Arms. The first thing that struck us as we walked in was the lovely, old-fashioned decor and beautiful staircase - just my cup of tea. We received a lovely welcome when we checked in were informed that we had been given a free upgrade to the next...

Just had a lovely stay here for a night. We were upgraded to a bigger room as they were quiet, which was good, and it was nicely decorated with a big bath/shower room. Very comfortable bed. The staff were very friendly and all the food was excellent. Suspect they are still in the process of upgrading and perhaps some rooms...

Very nice hotel, staff very friendly, food excellent, will definitely go back, no lift as I presume it's a listed building?, but just ask for a ground floor room. Everything very clean, cannot think of any negatives. Had chance of a chat with the chef Bill nice guy, owner Nigel very hands on.

We were given a gift package for Christmas and decided to use it for an overnight break with breakfast at The Tufton Arms in Appleby, Cumbria. We booked for our 11th wedding anniversary on the 14th January. This is a historic, family run hotel right in the centre of Appleby; a converted coaching inn, it has been sympathetically restored and...

Our group were made very welcome at this excellent hotel run by its very hospitable host, Nigel. The rooms are clean and tidy & the beds comfortable with amenities that perform well up to modern standards. The food is good with some very tasty local additions. If you are staying for angling/fieldsport related activities, Nigel is more than able to...

This hotel were very acomodating, I rang to say I was running late and the receptionist was very understanding and when I arrived she advised on parking in the 'yard' just behind the hotel, which has plenty of space. The room is comfortable and well appointed, the bathroom is modern and better than the standard of a 5* hotel! The...

This hotel was exactly what I liked, spotlessly clean, staff warm and welcoming, comfy beds, lots of hot water, tasteful decor and lovely breakfasts, Appleby is a very small place but has great pubs and cafes and a few restaurants, this hotel is great as a base to get out and explore

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the medieval town of Appleby, just outside the Lake District and 15 minutes from the M6, this intimate family-run hotel offers excellent food, in its relaxed newly refurbished bar areas and in the Conservatory Restaurant. We are a fish restaurant and have developed an enviable reputation for dishes such as Gumbo's, Chowders, Goan Fish curries, Fresh Mussels (3 different ways), Cajun Prawns and Calamari, and our constantly changing fish specials all fresh daily from Neves in Fleetwood. We still have our traditional sources of great beef and Cumbrian lamb on a grill menu so meat eaters are not left out! Originally a 16th Century coaching inn, it was rebuilt in the Victorian times and is now a Grade II listed building. It blends both the contemporary and the classical creating an atmosphere that reflects the traditional charms of the past as well as the sophisticated elegance of the present. With stylish soft furnishings, heaped cushions, deep sofas, polished wooden floors and open fires its homely comforts are further completed by warm and friendly hospitality and free wi-fi. Each of the 22 en-suite guestrooms are individually furnished and decorated. Beautifully appointed they offer all the necessary modern comforts and luxuries one would expect from a hotel of this calibre. Guests can choose from a range of different accommodation options including Single, Classic Double and Family options. For those special occasions they also offer Luxury Double rooms and spacious Suites. ... more   less
