The owner and everyone here are lovely and the position is excellent ....high on the side of the hill overlooking the water. However, someone was smoking in the bar area and that was the only place where the wi-fi worked...so was rather unpleasant. I ended up sitting on the staircase where it was quiet and no smoke. Very noisy outside... More

We didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast which was good . Close by the Harbour and Marina with plenty bars and restaurants close by. A short walk to the shops... More

Stayed for one night at this hotel where nothing was too much trouble from the owner to the bar staff. Good size, clean room with adequate facilities. Although did not eat in the restuarant at night the food & menu looked great and the restuarant was popular and busy. Nice views of the Moray firth from our bedroom and good... More

A first visit but certainly the first of many. The restaurant at the Golden Lion deserves greater patronage. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The waiter who took our order was friendly and efficient - and knowledgeable about the food - he enthusiastically described the Lamb Henry which was delicious. The black pudding and sausage stack starter was wonderful -... More

I would rate the hotel as good, its location is superb but there was no wow factor... However the staff made up for this, they were very helpful and could not have been more accommodating. I have to give a mention to Toni (who served our breakfast) it was a fab breakfast with great service, despite the evil customer from... More

I travelled down to Maryport with my mum as a present for Mother's Day as that is where she was born and lived as a child. We arrived at the hotel and parked in the small but adequate carpark. We then checked in and were shown to our room. The room was a good size for me and my mum... More

Fantastic spot on Maryport harbour with loads of walks on the doorstep. Had the best cooked breakfast I have ever had with really tasty Cumbrian sausages and thick bacon. The staff are friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend Maryport for a holiday and the hotel as a base.

I attended a party held at the Golden Lion Hotel recently and feel I must write a favourable review.  Philip and his staff  adopt a very professional yet friendly  approach to ensure all is as requested. Nothing is too much trouble to any of them.  The table was tastefully and beautifully decorated, the food simply wonderful and the service exemplary.... More
