Just spent a long weekend based at Shap Wells Hotel on a coach tour of the lakes. The location is brilliant for a quiet hideaway from hustle and bustle of modern living. You can lie in bed and watch sheep and cows grazing on the hillside. Our room was located on the second floor at the back with creaky floors so it was a bit unfortunate for occupants below on the first floor. The room itself was very homely with dated decor but adequate for our needs. The food on the first evening was very minimal especially the main courses vegetable portion which consisted of 2 small potatoes, a teaspoonful of peas and 2 slivers of leek. Its a good job we had eaten a snack mid afternoon. Subsequent nights it did improve. In contrast the breakfasts were very good. The main thing lacking was evening entertainment and by 9.30 pm the bar was empty with most guests having gone to bed except for us and a couple of others. Sunday night was totally different as a singer was performing until 10.30 so people stayed up and I would assume that takings over the bar were higher than previous nights. Would certainly go back to stay there. less
