Company booked me into this hotel and to my surprise it turned out to be an absolute jewel. Nice size room, very comfortable bed with very good decor. Very good choice for breakfast. Cereals, full English or vegetarian option. Full English was very tasty and nice and hot. Happily recommend.

It was very good to spend another overnight stay at the Golden Lion and meet its friendly owner Phil Cueto again. As before, we enjoyed a delicious dinner and a hearty breakfast sitting in the window with the view down to the harbour. Hope to go there again before too long.

I called the hotel at midday on a Monday to see if there were rooms available for that night and was greeted by receptionist Diane who was very helpful. There was a room - an executive room and it was available for the two nights required. When we arrived we were again greeted by Dianne who was enthusiastic and very... More

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

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!...
