Last week we spent Sunday to Wednesday at the Tufton arms in Appleby. Our room was right at the top of the hotel, it was clean though quite small. We were on a groupon deal so we were not surprised, clearly at this time of year they can sell the premium rooms no problem. We had a very enjoyable stay. All the staff were well trained and very friendly and helpful. It is worth mentioning that the young members of staff were polite, articulate and friendly and a credit to the hotel and the hospitality industry. The menu choice was smaller than some other places we have stayed, however everything we had over the 3 days (we ate in the hotel every night despite a choice of restaurants within a minutes walk) was well cooked and presented. Our daughter and three grand children aged 1 year 3 years and 6 joined us on the Tuesday for the day as they only live 75 minutes drive away, the weather was warm and fine and we found plenty to do, in the town for children of their age. Feeding the ducks and good playground. If it's raining the there is a heated indoor pool and Appleby castle is a few minutes walk from the hotel, though we didn't have time to visit on this occasion.
All in all we look forward to staying there again.
- 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
