Stayed two nights in converted stable rooms. Rooms well appointed with everything you need. On suite shower. Lovely views across the estuary watching train and tide. Help your self starters and drinks with very good breakfast. Had Mel in the hotel second night, this was also good. Would stay here again. Not recommended for people with limited mobility as old...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Ye Olde Fighting Cocks on March 11th. We opted for bed and breakfast and stayed in the Estuary room. Given some of the reviews that I had read on Google Reviews, I was apprehensive. I was relieved to find that my fears were totally unfounded and we spent an extremely enjoyable night here. On...

We've not stayed in the accommodation but visit the pub every time we're in Arnside, a warm welcome by the owner and staff can be guaranteed, they can't do enough to help! Great facilities for kids indoor and out, sports always available on TV, food great, great drinks choice - can't fault the place, love it!

I stayed here with my husband, three daughters and granddaughter as a surprise birthday treat for my husband. We were made to feel very welcome by Tony. The rooms were superb, mine had a great view of the estuary. We ate in the restaurant and the meal was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble....

Let me start by saying that despite my score I only have one serious concern. As an allergy sufferer, the relevant information on ingredients of the ice cream was not available. I even think one of the flavours had chopped nuts. For me, the problem is that I was completely underwhelmed. The location is fantastic for scenery and walkers but...

A thoroughly enjoyable stay. The accomodation was clean and well maintained. Our host Tony was a real gentleman and couldn't do enough for us, including supplying us with a Lemsip. Food was delicious with very generous portions. Arnside is a delightful place. We will definitely stop by again. Thank you for your hospitality.
