We were in the Appleby area the day after a bank holiday and those of you who know the area will know that it is like a ghost town! We were looking for somewhere to eat and found that most places were closed and those that were open weren't serving food. So we were just grateful to find somewhere that...

Just had a beautiful meal at the Tufton Arms Hotel. We dined there 2 nights ago and booked to go back again tonight before we left. Food beautiful & staff very friendly. Can not recommend highly enough. If ever back in the area, we will definitely be back.

I went through a Buy a gift present,rung up to be told only superior rooms were available for another 20 per night. We went to check in and we're left standing there for ten minute and shown our room. It was big but that's as complimentary as I can be. The plugs were outdated except one so chargers and straighteners...

The Tufton Arms overlooks the square in Appleby, but even so it doesn't seem as prominent as other pubs in the town when you drive by. We have staying in the hotel before, but were not residents on this occasion. We ate as part of a larger family group, and while the menu is not huge, everyone commented on how...

This is a great place to stay for exploring Cumbria, the area itself is lovely, the hotel is situated in the centre. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast will keep you going until dinner in the evening. The room was a little dated but clean and comfortable enough. I would definitely stay here again.

A lovely place to stop and use as a base, very lovely little town! Very friendly staff, made us feel very welcome. The room with en-suite was just right for us, a lovely king size bed! There is a place in the hotel to eat and the food was fresh and reasonable priced! Well worth a stay!

Our room was very pleasant with everything we required (apart from a mattress with springs nearly coming through the damask). Evening meal was good and breakfast in the 'orangerie' was excellent. It is in a great location, quiet but central.

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
