This is a lovely family run hotel in the beautiful village Cartmel. The room was really nice although the shower wasn't the most powerful, but that's just being picky. The staff are very friendly and accommodating especially William the owners son. We stayed two nights and had Valentine sdinner there. The food was very nice, both for dinner and breakfast....

We had a pleasant early evening by a blazing fire in the bar, whilst awaiting our friend, completed by a glass of the excellent local beer. Our room was comfortable and warm, and our stay was completed by an excellent breakfast. Although we didn't eat here, the dinners meals smelt very good.

Used a wowcher to stay at Cavendish and was really pleasantly surprised. The team are really friendly and remember you, which sounds daft but nice to ask if you had a good day. The food was glorious, even the scrambled egg in the morning was lovely! We went over a weekend but they managed to fit us in both nights...

We were checked in by a nice happy lad/bar staff, showed us to our room an explained the breakfast times etc, we weren't overwhelmed by the room but it was comfortable and had tea and coffee facilities, plenty of storage space, bath and shower. We went the bar but the drinks/lagers available (although plentiful) were not to my partners (fussy)...

This place has lots of character, with a welcoming fire in the bar, very helpful staff and great food. Car park is a bit of a challenge as the entrance is very tight from a narrow side street. We were on a special deal with free wine every night and a great selection of drinks from the bar, which has...

We spent 2 nights in room 8 which is in desperate need of refurbishment. The wooden toilet seat was cracked and stained. The panel on the side of the bath had fallen in. The TV was tiny, old and square therefore distorted all of the pictures making it virtually unwatchable. The remote control was grimy and missing the battery cover....

Thank your comments. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us at The Cavendish Arms, and as so often happens with on line reviews we were not given the opportunity to try and put things right for you at the time by being made aware of your disappointment. Had I been made aware, you have my word...
