“Uplands Hotel, Cartmel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

Just had a two night stay and can say how friendly the staff were and made us very welcome. The room we had was Winster which was comfortable but didn't have the benefit of the view described by others who had rooms looking out towards the bay. We had the Amazon deal which we have used on other occasions in different places.
The evening meal was well prepared and hot and I would describe it as a good family meal. The breakfast was excellent, plentiful, well cooked and hot with nice attention by the staff and offers of more toast etc. Bar prices were very good, especially the bottles of wine which demonstrate a sensible policy in my opinion because I hate being ripped off by extortionate wine tariffs.
I think these deals offer you the question " You've had an excellent deal, would you come again?" The answer is yes. Cartmel is a lovely, friendly part of the world and not too far from us.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the bay nicer.

We have just had the pleasure of a 5 night stay at Uplands.
The owners and staff were all so friendly and welcoming it was a real treat.
They really couldn't do enough to make sure we had a lovely stay there.
The chefs cook some really excellent food; from the full English breakfasts to the extensive a la carte menu.
The hotel was spotlessly clean throughout including our bedroom which was comfy, cosy and nicely decorated. Although we were told that all the rooms are now undergoing full refurbishment. We look forward to a return visit to see that!
The views from the hotel are amazing, it is very well situated for touring round the beautiful countryside and local amenities.
Needless to say we will be returning sometime in the new year.
Thank you to you all for sharing your haven with us.

I stayed at Uplands in November this year, the grounds are stunning and the village of Cartmel is lovely. Julie and Neal made me feel very welcome and the atmosphere is so friendlly and relaxing. The hotel is spotless and my room had wonderful views with all amenities one would need. I enjoyed a fabulous meal in the restaurant and nothing was too much trouble. I didn't want to leave, and I am planning my next visit already. It truly was a fabulous break away from it all and I cannot recommend it enough!! Thank you to all at Uplands.

Myself and my wife and our friends stayed at the Uplands on the weekend of 17/11/13 and 18/11/13. From the start we were made to feel welcome and the place was spotless. Our bedrooms were well equipped with all the necessary brew making accessories. We ate at the restaurant on the Saturday and the food was excellent and served in a timely manner. On both breakfasts we enjoyed a full English and were not disappointed. We had such a comfortable stay that we're already talking about making it an annual event. I would recommend this hotel to all.

Hi
Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We are so pleased all four of you enjoyed your stay with us, and you would be more than welcome to make it an annual event coming to stay with us.
We are just finishing the refurbishment we have been completing in our first room and hope to start on the 2nd room soon so you may even get a new look when you stay again.
Hope to see you all again soon.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Uplands Hotel. Accommodation and food were excellent. The owners Julie and Neal go out there way to ensure their guests have a good stay. We found all the staff to be really pleasant and helpful and they really work well as a team to provide a good atmosphere in the hotel. Our thanks to Joe the chef for the lovely meals. We found Cartmel to be a lovely village in its own right but also an excellent base for the lakes. Good luck to the owners Julie and Neal in their new venture as they try to make Uplands a success. If our experience at the hotel is anything to go by we are sure they will.

We had a 2 night stay 13th/14th November and had one of the rooms at the front of the hotel with the previously described fabulous view of the countryside and estuary. As the previous reviewer rightly states, the management and staff are superb and you quickly get the feeling that you are 'one of the family!' The hotel has a wonderful ambience, the food was excellently cooked from an extensive menu and our room was comfortable and well equipped. Thank you to Julie ( who I've even forgiven for being from Yorkshire!) and staff for a great stay. In the words of Arnie "We'll be back!"

Room Tip: Worth paying the small supplement for the Lune and Leven rooms.

Thank you for the lovely review I have to say it did make me smile whilst reading it. Not just for the wonderful comments regarding your stay, the best one being "That you felt part of family" Which is a fantastic compliment, but the comment regarding forgiving me for being from Yorkshire !!!!
We are so pleased you enjoyed the food and most of all your stay. People work hard to get a break so if we can help you enjoy your hard earned break thats great.
We all hope to see you again.

We had a three night stay 28-31 Oct. This is such a lovely hotel with lovely staff… it was like stopping with relatives the sort you want to go and visit. The rooms are named rather than numbered and ours was Lune, which had a wonderful view of the countryside leading to the Leven Estuary. I found myself wanting to hurry back from sightseeing just to relax and watch the majestic view of land, sea and sky.
The meals in the restaurant were delicious with very generous portions at very reasonable prices. Carrying quite a number of dishes from two menus. They also carry a selection of locally brewed Cartmel beers to add to the local flavour.
Think this has to be our best short stay break to date and would highly recommend. Thanks Julie for making what felt like your home our home.
