Stayed at the Shap Wells for the second time this year whilst we were up North on business, the dinner, bed and breakfast being very very good value for money. The food once again was excellent, piping hot, tasty and plentiful......with the option of vegetables and salad rather than just a huge pile of chips (which after a fortnight of living in hotels and seemingly surviving off chips, having vegetables and salad was a BiG bonus) Last night there were two large coach parties of pensioners, so the hotel was full, but the staff were great with everybody, the friendly banter between some of the younger members of staff and their older guests was hilarious, everybody clearly enjoying themselves.
The room although smallish, was cosy and comfortable, however, the bathroom was big enough to have a party, with the bath long enough to swim lengths in!
The ONLY aspect stopping this hotel getting 5 stars is the wifi speed. My parents dial-up is faster, for a hotel offering business facilities, they really do need to up the speed up to something to that is at least workable.
