Decided to book here as it was close to where my friends had a cottage for the week and cheap price. Worth every penny of the £50 I paid, massive room comfy bed fab breakfast. My friends ate at the pub on the night with me, all enjoyed our very generous meals and several bottles of wine. Nice friendly staff....

The hotel is well situated for visits to the South Lakes. It is a short journey to Arnside and Kendal. The food is very good and the atmosphere is quite with good spacious parking to the rear and close to the market and cricket ground

Very nice rooms with plenty of character. Great pub with everything you could need including pool table. Decent full English breakfast and very helpful staff. Would stay again if in the lake district.

We visited this pub one Friday afternoon after a long week at work. We noticed that they do a steak night on Friday so we decided to be lazy and have a meal instead of having to cook. The food was excellent and cooked exactly as we asked. Will definitely be back for another steak,might even try the curry night.

We stayed for one night on our way back home to visit a friend who lives nearby. The hotel is fine if a bit of a rabbit warren, and could be noisy if you were on the front, but we weren't. The bar was very busy when we arrived on Sunday afternoon but, again, it didn't affect the noise level...

Called in for a drink but wasn't keen on the beers so went for gin and tonic. That was fine. But the place is full of televisions, we counted at least 7 and the place is not a huge cavernous place. We sat opposite the bar and there were 4 or 5 playing different things above the bar. Why? Then...

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at this pub come hotel and we were not disappointed in the least. Situated just 7 miles south of Kendal but within easy reach of the Lakes it makes this hotel a convenient base in which to explore. The Cross keys itself is a large pub with loads of space with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel is surrounded by a wealth of history, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, such as Leighton Moss, and a wide range of visitor attractions Milnthorpe has a long history - its busy Friday street market in the Square dates from 1334. The village's heyday was from the middle of the eighteenth to the middle of the nineteenth centuries when many of the buildings in the centre of the village (now a conservation area) were completed including the present Cross Keys Hotel.
