This one had a bath and an overhead shower with shampoo etc laid on. This hotel accepts dogs at a nominal fee, evidently on the ground floor only which... More

An overnight stay. This is a basic 3 star hotel. Clean and Comfortable, with friendly accommodating staff. Good breakfast and a satisfactory restaurant. Just a short stroll from Cockermouth town centre. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Have just spent 2 nights at Shepherds. Room was large clean and comfortable with nice facilities. The staff were helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The breakfast was lovely and catered for everyone's taste and cooked fresh which is always a nice touch. All in all a lovely hotel and for the price you pay exceeded my expectations

I have spent 42 and 60 nights on cross country trips in the USA staying in motels. There is nothing wrong with this Hotel/Motel. Bed was too big,... More
