5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great pub with amazing staff
Have returned from a long weekend staying at the Engine. Had a great time, the pub is excellent with great food and beer. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The location is excellent, about a mile walk to the centre of Cartmel, 10 min drive to Grange over Sands and of course near to all the lake district has to offer.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Room was not clean. Cups & kettle looked like they had never been cleaned! Mattress had springs poking, most uncomfortable night. Decor very dated and shabby. Staff disorganised, had to wait quite a while for veggie breakfast as staff had forgotten I was veggie even though reminded twice
