Started our evening in the wonderful and glamorous Gin bar where the selection of gins surpassed many a city restaurant. Bar service was young, fun and quick. We had to ask if our table was ready and though the bright and spacious restaurant was well staffed the attention to detail wasn't there. The food was delicious and we all had... More

Just back from the annual Dickensian Christmas Festival Weekend stay with my wife. We wondered how the place would be with the new owners and different approach incorporating a fine dining experience and 'Gin Parlour' , we didn't need to worry. The new owners Craig & Louise Sherrington, have made a great job of refurbishment to the ground floor with... More

If you are looking to stay in Ulverston, Virginia House is really worth a visit. New owners Craig & Louise have totally reinvented Virginia House, changing it markedly from a run of the mill B&B to something rather more special. As well as rooms, the new format includes a rather good restaurant and Gin Parlour. At the time of my... More

I've eaten here a couple of times since the new owners took over and both times it was excellent. Unlike a lot of other fine dining places, vegetarians are well catered for (the two I've been with really enjoyed their meals) and the fish/meat dishes I had were outstanding. Service was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. The wine list... More

I have stayed here many times when on business in the area. A very pleasant B&B in an excellent location. Previous owners have retired but new management seems intent to build on good foundations and take the business forward.

It was a last minute booking,as were each of the places i stayed in and at least this one had the one night i needed! Ulverston B&B's and hotels seem to be now predominantly catering for Business folks due to Glaxo expansion and Siemens plus Acrastyle & Marl International so difficult to get squeezed in for very many nights with...

I have stayed here before but forgot that this B&B is very good when revisting the area recently. The bed that I had was comfortable, probably a queen size with no lumps in the middle you get with some places where they join two singles, badly, and a good size room with teand coffee facilities and tidy shower. Breakfast is... More

Just returned from a much needed break in Ulverston. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Virginia House.The breakfasts were excellent and if a cooked breakfast is too much for you there are plenty of cereals and fruit for you to tuck in to. The room we were given was clean and spacious and the bed was very... More

This is our second stay in this wonderful family run hotel. Once again the breakfasts were plentiful and hot with a fabulous selection of friuit and berries together with the traditional full English. Rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious and shower was hot and powerful. Looking for another excuse to stay there again soon.
