Very uncomfortable bed, neither of us slept well either night. Mattress very old and lumpy. Room small and stuffy. Decoration very dated and all a...

The only niggle was a noisy kitchen fan that woke us up early each morning and was switched off late about 11pm. Lovely walks close by,...

Another excellent stay at the Shap Wells Hotel. The evening was brilliant food music accommodation all first class. The venue was well patronised by many returning revellers. Cannot wait for the next event. Well done Team Shap.
