An excellent stopover on our walking holiday in the Lake District. The rooms were recently referbed, the food excellent - try the paella - and the staff so friendly. Although Maryport may not itself be in a tourist class, it is so close to those areas that are. Worth a look.

We recently had three nights' stay at this hotel and don't have a bad word to say about the place. We arrived on a Saturday lunchtime and enjoyed the most delicious roast beef sandwiches. We also had breakfast and an evening meal. The menu wasn't too big but offered lots of variety. This hotel has a very talented chef. The... More

The Golden Lion has recently been refurbished. the rooms are modern, clean and comfortable with good en-suite facilities. Situated at the harbour end of the main street(Senhouse street) making it convenient for walks around the harbour/swimming pool and the small shopping area. Noise at night can be a problem as bars remain open until 2am but this is solved by... More

We had booked a nearby pub B&B (the Sailor's Return) and they failed to honour our booking... stranded in a strange place we walked in to The Golden Lion and asked for a room. Fortunately for us they had one, and we spent a very pleasant 3 nights. Very friendly staff who helped us find our way around, and nice... More

Great hotel with a fantastic, central location. Lovely rooms (ours had a stunning view of the harbour) and wonderful, friendly staff. The function room was also well equipped and an excellent venue for the wedding celebration we were attending. Delicious breakfast and all other meals available are also of an excellent quality and great value. Highly recommended, will be back!

Staff were so friendly from arrival to check out. Breakfast was lovely and good choice. Room was clean but I think £90 is a bit expensive as the room was quite small and when we got into bed there was a plastic mattress cover which was noisy uncomfy and make us over heat felt like a large puppy training pad!...

May 2015. Our room – (Double-Deluxe-Ensuite-Harbour View) had a good view over harbour and sea. Large room with good bed. Ate in bar – good food and not expensive. Breakfast had a good menu of cooked to order food. Would definitely stay here again. We were travelling on foot – so cannot speak to parking.

Unfortunately we only stayed here one night so didn't get to enjoy lunch or dinner but if breakfast was anything to go by the food will be delicious. Our room was spotlessly clean, as is the rest of the hotel, and the views of the harbour were fabulous. As good as it all is the real stars of the Golden... More
