We stayed for one night in December as we were visiting L’Enclume. We had a lovely warm welcome and the room overlooked the village square. It was very clean with a nicely refurbished bathroom. Breakfast was good with another lovely welcome. The only thing stopping this review from being 5* was the size of the bed. We’re used to a kingsize and it was just too small. For £77 B&B, it was excellent value and I would recommend.

I was slightly apprehensive after reading previous reviews , but after staying here I can honestly say I am not sure where they are coming from ! We had a lovely stay here the first weekend out of lockdown , the staff were warm and welcoming and could not do enough for us, the atmosphere in the bar area was second to none ! We had the penthouse room , it was cosy and quiet , would definitely return 😁

The welcome was lukewarm but ok. The room was really badly lit. The tv only worked intermittently. The bathroom was actually dirty. The bread and croissant for breakfast were hard as rock-stale. It’s a long list. When I told the staff member who was checking us out she said thank you and smiled but did nothing. When I emailed the manager/owner she blamed me and then said the room hadn’t been refurbished yet-which is fine but don’t charge over £100 a night for it then! I’d expect an actual apology, which I didn’t get. I hardly ever write bad reviews. I think it’s only fair to let the owner/manager know how you feel first and if they seem sorry then that’s basically enough. But she just didn’t care at all that I’d had a bad experience. She said I should have told someone. I asked her for more milk for a cup of tea and that didn’t materialise so I didn’t hold out much hope for anything else.

Response from Gary Broadhurst, Owner at Priory Hotel Cartmel
Responded 27 Dec 2020
Good Morning Catherine, We do welcome all feedback however I feel from your review that you were not offered an apology, as you can see below the email we replied to you in which i sent my apologies twice, so we did indeed apologize that you did not enjoy your experience with us. As stated in the email sent had we been aware of your upset during your stay then we could have made steps to rectify this. We stated that room 5 was on the list to be refurbed and this has now been completed, We also offered you money off a future stay, which you declined on your reply. Email sent on 30/10/20 Apologies that you were not happy with your stay with us, However had you brought it to our attention at the time of check in or even the following morning then we could have looked into swapping your room for you. The lady that checked you out explained that she would pass on your issues onto the management which she did straight away. All of our rooms are currently undergoing a freshen up but as you can understand everyone is currently going through a difficult time at the moment especially the hospitality sector due the covid19. More people are taking trips in the UK instead of going abroad, which is slowing down the process slightly. Room 5 is next on the list to to be done but like i said had we been aware of your upset before you checking out then we could have looked at moving you. There should have been a complimentary little bag in your room which contained a bar of soap, a small bath and shower gel and a small shampoo if this wasn't the case then i will speak to the housekeeping team and I can only apologise, if you had mentioned this then we could have had some sent up for you. I'm also sorry to hear that your breakfast wasn't enjoyable either this is most unusual as we have people that return time and time again just for breakfast. I will speak to the chef on duty and ask them about the points you have raised over the muffin, Croissants and black pudding. Apologies again that you have not enjoyed your stay with us however if you are ever in cartmel again and you wish to stay with us then we are more than happy to give you 15% discount on your next stay, you will just need to contact the hotel directly as this offer will not apply to any third party bookings such as Booking.com Thank you Lyndsey

Looking for somewhere not too expensive to eat lunch in Cartmel popped into The Priory. Customers are asked to fill in a trace form with details and take to the bar when ordering. Pleasant waitress, fully masked , showed where it was safe to sit. Small menu, with lots of choice, ordered a sandwich and chips. Good table service with drinks and food, good Latte, really fresh sandwich and the best chips we have eaten for a long time, nothing frozen here.

Lovely lunch at this hoteL on spec. The homemade soup was delicious. The afternoon teas was very good and the price was excellent. Would definitely recommend a visit. I believe they also do an all day breakfast.
