Saying on business and would defiantly come back. Made to feel at home by mick and his team. The food is traditional home cooked good food not from a microwave. The setting is nice and free WiFi with free parking.

We booked on the Monday for the Thursday and Friday night stay. It was a real find, the room was fresh and clean with a new bathroom. The food was delicious and large portions. The landlord was helpful on places of interest nearby.

Great little place. nothing is too much trouble for the owner and staff. Meals are good, rather large portions and value for money I have stayed on business and for pleasure with my wife. Rooms are a good size and beds are comfortable

Just back from spending the weekend with a group of friends at the Old Posting House near Cockermouth. A warm welcome from the owner, Mick, a lovely guy for whom nothing was too much trouble. Hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms finished to a high standard especially the bathrooms. Really comfy king-sized beds with quality bedding, ensuring a great nights' sleep.... More
