My wife and I stayed at the Tufton Arms Hotel for a 3 night break. Everything was without fault,room was lovely and breakfast was very good. Appleby is a lovely place to stay and is ideally located for the Lakes.

Hubby and I and Hubby's brother stayed there for one night on the 15th May 2017, our rooms are cosy, the male receptionist is brilliant, it was a sudden late evening booking and he treated us very well. For three adults in two rooms and three breakfasts for one night it was only £140.00 the lot! The building is beautiful...

Had a 2 night stay at this lovely hotel using a Buyagift Voucher. The hotel is traditional and in keeping with the market town. Our room was lovely overlooking Market Square. Bed was comfortable and we slept well. The bathroom was clean and shower worked well. There were coffee and tea facilities in the room refreshed daily. Wifi worked well....

I had evening meals in the restaurant as a non resident twice this week. The ambience was very good. The staff were knowledgeable, personable and efficient. The food and wine were both excellent. Prices were reasonable - perhaps a bit above average for pub food but this is a bit more than a run of the mill pub.

We returned for a further three night stay at this excellent Family Run Hotel. Our room was very comfortable, with a very rare teapot, cups and saucers much better than the usual mugs you get in the other places we have stayed. The bathroom had good quality towels and the toiletries adding another touch of luxury. The staff were all...

Called in for a cuppa on a Friday morning. Had an offer of cuppa & cake £3.95. Very friendly staff and welcoming. We only sat in the bar area but the hotel looked roomy. The bar filled up with people coming in for lunch so I think it is a popular place. It is situated in the middle of the...

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
